Together in Nature, Bringing the Hearts Closer

On Thursday, May 31st 2007, 4th and 5th graders of "Kalanit" School in Karmiel and "A-Sallam" School in Majd el-Krum went out to Ahiud Forest on the slopes of Shagor Stream.

We immediately commenced joint experiential activity in mixed groups. We discovered many words that exist in both languages – with similar sound and identical meaning, we got to better know each other through names' games and played in girls and boys competitions.

After the activities, we enjoyed delicious refreshments, prepared by the parents of "A-Sallam". In the concluding ceremony we enjoyed the singing of the children of the joint coir, the greetings of the organizers and from joint exciting dances of both teachers and students from both schools.
