Austrian delegation: The Sacré Coeur School in Pressbaum near Vienna


Our school, the Sacre Coeur, is situated in Pressbaum in the middle of the beautiful Wienerwald, a forest near Vienna, the capital of Austria. The Sacre Coeur contains five different school types which are a nursery school, a primary school, a junior high school, a secondary high school and a higher vocational school for early childhood education.
We are pupils of the higher vocational school for early childhood education, because we all wanna be educated as nursery school teachers. In our school we have the emphasis of social subjects as education and didactics. We are also getting lots of practical knowledge in doing internships in different kind of kindergartens. We are involved in some projects like the Briefmarathon 2014 too, an operation of amnesty international. In our curriculum are also lots of creative subjects as music and choir, eurhythmics, woodwork/metalwork classes and guitar and flute classes.

Israeli-Jewish delegation: Zvulun Carmel School


carmelz.org
Carmel Zvulun Regional High School is beautifully situated against the ever-green Carmel Mountains, near Haifa, and consists of approximately 890 students, aged 12-18, who come from Kibbutzim ,small communal settlements and small towns in the area.
Our aims are to motivate our students to excel academically and to help them develop a high degree of social awareness. Our students attend various lectures, seminars and social activities relating to tolerance and acceptance of people who are perceived to be different. Perfect examples are "Reaching Out", a series of meetings between 8th graders from Arab schools in our area and our 8th graders, and the Bridging Seminar, during which 11th graders from our secular school spend a long weekend with students from a religious boarding school.
In addition, a number of hearing impaired students, coming from more distant places, is integrated on each grade level. Together with our hearing students, they participate in ceremonies, activities and school trips and have become an inseparable part of our surroundings.

We in “Hand In Hand” school studying Arab and Jews students together in the same classrooms, each of us learn the two languages Arabic and Hebrew.
We live the two life of Arab and Jews in one place OUR SCHOOL, we live the dream that the country rejects to make it true.
We share everyday the two society issues; we eat together Arab and Jews foods, celebrating Arab and Jews event’s days and visit our homes.
We understand that the politics make our life hard here in Israel/Palestine, politics people want us to hate each other and to kill each other, and because of that we try to live together in a small place that have a lot of love, understanding and the most important we accept the others that different of us.
Our faith is that peace make our life better, we need that to grow up in a healthy world.
