P. 18. 'MARTISOARE' FOR OUR PARTNERS- FEBRUARY 2020 (COLEGIUL NATIONAL MIHAI EMINESCU)
Mărțișor is a celebration at the beginning of spring, on March the 1st in Romania. It is the name for the red and white string with hanging tassel customarily given on the 1st day of March. Giving this talisman to people is an old custom, and it is believed that the wearer will be strong and healthy for the year to come. It is also a symbol of the coming spring. They also prepared a presentation about this celebration that was uploaded on Twinspace which they wanted to present to their colleagues during C1 mobility.
WORKSHOP OF PRODUCING HANDMADE SOUVENRIS MADE OF CLAY (GENIKO LIKIO HORTIATI - P15 ACTIVITY)
In November 2019 the pupils of the Erasmus+ project of Geniko Likio Hortiati produced some handmade souvenirs made of clay to offer to their hosting Romanian pupils during C3 mobility.
WORKSHOP OF PRODUCING TRADITIONAL OLIVE OIL SOAP (GENIKO LIKIO HORTIATI - P19 ACTIVITY)
On Tuesday 10 March 2020 the pupils of B2 class under the guidance of the chemistry and physics teachers, Mrs.M.Mangana and Mr.E.Tsakiris, of Geniko Likio Hortiati participated in a workshop of producing traditional olive oil soap at the chemistry laboratory of the school.
The materials that were used were olive oil (1Kg), sodium hydroxide (135g), water (380mL) and lavender. At first we weighed the materials, trying to be as accurate as possible.
Then we boiled lavender in water and we heated the olive oil at 50oC approximately.
We separated lavender from the water and waited a few minutes for the water to cool. Then we added sodium hydroxide to the water and kept stirring the mixture for a few minutes.
Finally we added the water with the sodium hydroxide and lavender to the heated oil and stirred the mixture until the mixture became more viscous.
At the end we poured the mixture to the mould in order the soap to mature for about sixty days.
The olive oil for producing the soap can be used fried oil, so the method of producing traditional olive oil soap is also a good recycling practice.
The handmade soaps will be the souvenirs that the Greek pupils will give to the hosting Italian pupils during the C1 Mobility.
