Quantum Students' One-day Tour in Thirteen Countries
On the 29th of December, 2011 any visitor of Quantum College could really have such a chance entering one of the classrooms. Thirteen countries of the world were represented in the same place.
A unique project which had a great success this time, too…
"Ethnic Expo" exhibition-competition has its special place in the educational programme of the college. At first, each of the classes gets its country with a ballot and for introducing that country the class gets about two months. On the day of the exhibition, being in each of the classes, you can really feel yourself in Russia, the USA, Portugal or in some other country.
This year, 13 countries were chosen and they were assigned to classes with a ballot. The introduced countries were: Spain, Greece, Australia, The UK, Argentina, Egypt, Japan, Armenia, Mexico, Iran, France, Mozambique, and Georgia.
The winner of the competition was the 8-2 class, which represented Argentina. The second place got class 9-3 representing Iran and 10-3 representing Mozambique. The third place was shared among three classes: 7-1 (Greece), 7-2 (Australia) and 8-3 (Egypt).
It needs to be noted that the classes that won no places had prepared for the competition with great enthusiasm and they showed themselves in the best way. Many classes were worth being mentioned, especially 9-1 and 10-7. Class 9-1 was filled with Armenian spirit: a great number of posters showing Armenian symbols, Armenian church which is the embodiment of the Armenian architecture, the irreplaceable dishes of the Armenian cuisine, the great enthusiasm of the students when introducing all these made everybody feel deep love and respect towards the national values.
A very unique one was also the work done by class 10-7. The students introduced our neighbouring country Georgia. The number of the posters introducing that country, the variety of the Georgian cuisine dishes, the colours of the Tbilisi market were just astonishing. The whole scenery became a complete one with the "Dance of Kintos".
The students were able to put a joke-dance in a short time and introduced it with such a professionalism that everyone was amazed.
All were very satisfied at the end of the event: the teachers, the students, the parents. Everyone's great efforts, enthusiasm, eagerness to introduce the assigned country in a proper way gave great results.
