An international jury assessed the organization, aesthetics, the way of preparing and serving dishes, as well as the taste and visualization of the plate in accordance with the highest requirements. For Magda, participation in such a competition is an amazing experience that will certainly pay off in the future.

This year three groups of ten people went to Tenerife. The internship took place from May to September. Trainees lived and worked at the Tamaimo Tropical hotel in positions such as  receptionists, cooks, animators and waitresses. In their free time they familiarised with the culture of this beautiful place.
Everything began on 12 August 2018 but it’s not the whole truth…
First, we had to take part in language courses (English, Spanish) and we got to know some information about Tenerife. Then we had to pack all our things to small bags. It was extremely difficult. Finally, we got to the airport in Cracow and spent long 6 hours on the plane. We were very excited.
After the landing, we went to our hotel. We left our baggage and went to dinner and met with the manager. After that we did some sightseeing and swam in the ocean.
The next day we had to go to work. We worked in groups. Two of us worked at the reception desk, two girls worked as animators, two friends worked in the kitchen, and the last group  worked as waiters and waitresses.
Our work wasn’t as easy as we had thought before, it was extemely difficult. We had to learn many new things, cope with people we didn’t know, and spoke English and Spanish.
Even though we were tired we were also happy because we had trips and spare time. During the first weekend we went to Loro Park and we had a lot of fun. We saw a lot of different animals and shows with dolphins, killer whales and seals . It was the biggest attraction.
The second weekend we spent on the beach and in the ocean. It was definitely relaxing, especially before the next working week.
On the third weekend we went to Siam Lark. It was something! It was the biggest aguapark in Europe. We could try to slide many different water chutes. It was the most breathtaking experience!
The last trip was very surprising for us. We were sailing and we had the opportunity to see dolphins living wild. It was extremely fantastic to see something like that.
During the last Saturday we had to pack all our things because the next day we were leaving. It was very sad for us because we felt connected with this place and the people we met. 
This month was a great adventure for us. We learnt many new things, met a lot of people, saw beautiful places and worked a lot with amazing people. I hope I will visit this place again next year.

Eight women: Victoria, Sara, Agata, Małgosia, Olivia, Emilia, Karolina and Nikola together with Mr Arkadiusz Gniewek and his wife Anna – in such a group we set off to conquer Portugal.
On 1st July 2018, we met in Tychy near the swimming pool and it was the beginning of a journey into the unknown. At the point, we have already known that this was going to be an unforgettable adventure. It did not matter how many times we had the apprenticeships. Everyone tearfully said goodbye to their families and friends, then only a journey to Warsaw and Ryanair took us from Modlin Airport to Faro, Portugal.
The first thing we saw when we got off the plane was the blue sky. A few moments later, after collecting our baggage, we met our guardian – Philip, the representative of the organisation "Bragamob." From the airport, he took us directly to the village, which for a month has become our home - Portimao. We got into our apartment and started unpacking the suitcases, to be able to move as quickly as possible to explore this beautiful town.

As the first group, we started our Portuguese adventure with Erasmus+. After a long journey we got to Portimao in Algarve, which became our new home for a month.
On the first day, we visited our new work places: hotel Squash, restaurant Mistral and Cantinho d'Pão Caseiro cafe and we met friendly workers.
During this month we have learned a lot of things such as improving our professional English, learning the basics of Portuguese. We were observing work of qualited Staff. We have learned how to work in group. We were also making a lot of traditional dishes.
After a first week we went to yacht cruise Manguito along the coast of Portugal. We had a chance to see the most popular cave Benagil.
In the next week we visited ”the end of the world”, that means cape of St. Vincent. It’s the most windy place, we had ever been.  Then we stopped in Lagos to see the beautiful rock formations.
In the next Saturday we visited Slide & Splash aquapark. That was awesome! We had a lot of fun!
On the last Saturday we visited Zoomarine, where we saw a dolphin, parrot and seal show.
This month was really amazing. We had a chance to meet Portuguese culture and wonderfull people. It will stay in our memory forever.

Edinspiracje is a competition organized annually by the Foundation for the Development of the Education System. Nominations for the main prize, commonly referred to as the "Oskar" in the EU, are awarded to projects recognized for their outstanding quality, extremely valuable, which can be an example of good practice and inspiration for others.

Our school has been nominated for this award in the "Professional education" category - for the project "Teachers and students of catering and hospitality partners on the way to the professional championship". The project established cooperation with partner institutions from two countries of southern Europe, which allowed to organize foreign internships for 40 students from hotel and catering classes (in Portugal) and for 16 teachers (in Italy). It is worth noting that the selection of nominated institutions was made from over 700 institutions from all over the country, implementing various types of EU projects, and only 5 of them were finally nominated in the "Professional Education" category. It is also important that the institutions from which the nominees were nominated and awarded are not only schools, but also universities and foundations.

Our school was represented by the Headmistress - Joanna Żebrowska (author of the project) and Mrs. Dorota Pardon (coordinator).
