The following people are attending the meeting in Worthing:

Janos Blasszauer (Batthyany Lajos Gimnazium, Hungary)

Andrew Davies (Varndean School, UK)

Caterina Gasparini (Istituto Tecnico Industriale, Italy)

John Simkin (Spartacus Educational, UK)

As a result of the different times people are arriving and leaving, it will only be on Saturday that we will be all together. Producing an agenda for the meeting is very difficult. All the key issues will have to be discussed on Saturday. However, it is important that we make full use of the other time we have available. Please post your ideas below:

One of the main tasks will be to fill in the Comenius 2.1 application form. However, we already have a problem with this. Comenius has decided to change the application form. It is not yet available. It is expected to be ready soon but we might be forced to use the old one at our meeting in Worthing.

It might be a good idea if Juan Carlos, Janos and myself work on the filling out of the non-controversial aspects of the application form on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning.
