European Christmas tree decoration exchange

We are looking to recruit eight North East primary schools to take part in this exciting exchange project. Schools make Christmas decorations and exchange these and information about how Christmas is celebrated in their country with up to 30 other schools from across the EU.

Europe Direct will offer a small grant of £50 towards postage costs and will support all schools throughout the project.
