This year also, the Karlovac County had been acclaimed throught the Europe Direct Karlovac Infromation Center for participating in the project "European Christmas Tree Decoration Exchange". It is an annual project, in which thousands of elemenatary school students made hand-made ornaments for Christmas trees, and exchange them with schools in other European contries. All the decorations that are received are placed on the Christmas tree, also the songs are played, the recipes are read and traditions also of celebrading Christmas that are written by the children. Through learning about celebrating Christmas in other countries, children also learn about other aspects specific to each cpuntry, such as language, geography, history and culture, and thus gain a better understanding of what it means to be a citizen of Europe.
This yeqar, in the project participated 5 schools from our county- Grabrik Primary School, Primary School Dragojla Jarnević, Banija Primary School, Primary School Draganići and Primary School Ivan Goran Kovačić. In the project participated over 400 schools from all over Europe and more than 6000 primary school students.
The Europe Direct Karlovac Infromation Center Participated in the project as the main communication tool and coordinator between schools.
