During the meetings Italian and Polish students had a chance to play together and get to know each other’s culture and make friends.

In their programme there was also a meeting of the students and the delegation with local government and participation in the final of the competition “Skawina and its twin towns”, which questions concerned also Civitanova Marche. The Mayors of both towns have stressed the importance of common contacts between young people many times. As one can see, there was no need to wait long for school co-operation which started by the visit of Italian students in Skawina. This visit made it possible for the students to make friends which will lead to next exchanges of various types. It is delightful that there is a bond of friendship and understanding among the youth as this gives a chance for long-term contacts between the towns.

The aim of the competition, in which primary and junior high schools from our Commune took part, was the popularization of knowledge about Skawina and its twin towns as well as spread of the twin town idea. The competition was carried out in three age categories: for 1st to 3rd graders from primary schools there was a drawing competition, 4th – 6th graders had to face closed questions and students from junior high schools had to answer various questions about Skawina and its twin towns.
