School Makes Sense Programme: Six-Graders Are Making Acquaintance with the profession “Forester”
During one of the first real spring days of the year, six-graders from Hristo Smirnenski Secondary School, Brezovo, participants in School Makes Sense programme,  who have chosen to visit Trakia forestry enjoyed an incredible end of the week.

Immediately after Friday classes, together with their Bulgarian language and Literature teacher Emil Manevski, a group of 7 six-graders visited a forestry near Brezovo with an amazing view over the neighborhood. There, they had the opportunity to become acquainted with the profession of Forester, presented with a lot of attention and passion by Stoyan Pamukov from Trakia forestry.

The meeting with him was not unilateral – children also had the opportunity to talk about their personal experience with representatives of the animal world and to share their knowledge about them, gained through the thematic classes with Mr. Manavski. He also has prepared an unexpected and exciting end of this warm and sunny march afternoon. After a correct answer of previously prepared questions, every student had the chance to shoot with a bow on a target. And at the end, children met a herd of deer. This is how children had the opportunity to see some animals for which they heard and talked about earlier in the day.

The lessons learned from this fairy afternoon with the group of foresters in Brezovo are: when children learn through play, when they meet new and interesting people, who attract their attention and actively engage them and when they go outside the classroom, the results and emotions are more than positive.
