Comenius project logo

projektin logo

At our school students designed logos. Emma Virtanen's (5b) and Iida Karisto's (4a) designs got most votes.

The project logo was created in the meeting in Orivesi. It was based on the suggestion of the Judenburg Lindfeld school.

In the picture you can see hands of children from each participating country with the country's flag painted on the hand. The Finnish flag is painted on Eetu Virtanen's (4a) hand. The hands and finger create a five pointed star like the ones in EU flag. EU has funded this project. That's why one of the hands has EU flag on it. K

This logo (on the right) can be seen on the project web pages. Below you can se our students' most voted logos.
