Many, many , many thanks again or the warm welcome…
In march 2017, pupils worked together to finalize booklets.

Today is our second day in Qaarsut,we are stuck in the chelter.We are sad because yesterday we left of Saattut.Anne,Szimon,Julia and me we sleep in the same room.After we go to the village because it’s elections day.
What a Day ! How sad to leave Saattut and our friends…What a week !
We were looking forward to meeting our Greenlandic friends at the airport but they are stuck, like we are.
We are together , Polish and friends, in Qaarsut and won’t be able to leave tomorrow due to foggy weather. So here we are, we have said goodbye, wiped our tears and are now ready to go back home. Extra time in marvellous Greenland ! People are taking good care of us (food, accomodation: it is not a touristic place but what a view !).
We will let you know…If you can ! Good luck for this coming week !
The 3A team and friends !

We are leaving tomorrow…Sunny but colder day today. We are enjoying our last day in Saattut… Takuss , bye !
Last days for us in Saattut, we hope everybody will have a safe journey back home…
Last night, great party; great food (narwhal, reindeer, sheep,fish soup and so on !), we sang a very moving Greenlandic song,then we danced, Polish active break in Saattut ! What a nice people ! It was nice to spend time together at school again but the end of our trip is near !
Then back to school again this morning : we had a pasta party and watched the famous dogsled race in Asaat (more than 300 km away, down South, in Disco Bay). Four people are from Saattut and they ran 40 km in the snow. Since three of them won, people went out and yelled. There were fireworks and it is party time again ! The Polish and French students are walking around the village this afternoon, followed by some Greenlandic students. It is about -18 degrees and still sunny ! And here, more than ever, nature is our strength !
We will all meet again on Monday morning, they want to say goodbye at the heliport…
Last article, probably…We will be in Copenhagen on Tuesday night and back in Granville on Wedsesday night…
Hier soir, danses, chant et repas traditionnel ; narval, rennes, agneau, poisson seche, requin cru et cuit…Puis ce midi, repas a l ecole pour assister a la course de chiens de traineau, quatre participants du village et parmi eux, trois gagnants ! 40 km dans la neige…Et victoire fetee par des cris et des feux d artifice ! Bon retour a tous les voyageurs ! Quelle belle semaine !
Today we surfed on the big day of yesterday (it ended with a reception by the Town hall and then an evening with the host families at school), while continuing the discovery of each other.
In the morning, the foreign students attended the classes of their French peers. Meanwhile, the Polish and Greenlandic adults shared their morning: observation of the classes in France, then coordination meeting to adjust the calendars together and define the tasks of the end of the year, start preparing the one of next year …
At noon, everyone found themselves in the courtyard to see how each one had progressed in the learning of the respective dances. Many other Malraux students also participated in “the great Madison”. From the memory of André Malraux, never has the friday “active breack” (a french importation of a Polish idea) been so frequented!
After lunch we had an appointment… with Greenland! It was in the Chausey room, which could accommodate the maximum number of people. Here the pupils of all the delegations were able to exchange with their friends currently in Saattut, 500km north of the Arctic Circle!
In the early afternoon, the adults finished what they had to do while the young people left to make their last turn in town: departure tomorrow morning after evening in the families.
Last but not least: these meetings are only a starting point, hope you will soon see again our youth in the Granville’s streets.
See you soon and thank you all!
