In the first morning we met at Carelicum. We listened to a presentation about education in Joensuu by Mauno Väänänen, Director of Education in Joensuu. Then the students presented their own countries and told something about employment in their country. There was a fifteen-minute break between those presentations when students were able to chat with each other.

We had free time before going to school and we walked around the town centre. We had lunch in school and gathered together in class 17 to listen to a short presentation about Pielisjoki school.

Then we went to our home economics classes and baked some Karelian pastries.
