First student exchange in Čakovec and Stubičke Toplice within projects
“Rhythm with a Horse” and “Yoga in Service of Health and Satisfaction”

(17th of October 2018)


   On Wednesday, 17th of October 2018, the first student and teacher exchange within the projects "Rhythm with a Horse" and "Yoga in Service of Health and Satisfaction" took place at Čakovec High School. Colleagues and students from High School Viktorovac were greeted with a warm welcome from the Čakovec High School Headmaster, Gordana Ramušćak, and exchange organisers, Nikolina Zaplatić Degač and Ivana Preložnjak.

   After the welcome, the students and teachers had an organised breakfast, during which they could get to know each other better. Through a relaxed and fun atmosphere, the students presented their creative ideas, desires, goals and plans. Each student described their vision of the projects, which in the end were encompassed into a single, coherent whole. The students set themselves the goal of presenting the projects in the most interesting and creative way possible. The students divided the tasks among themselves and exchanged their e-mails and cell phone numbers, so they can keep in touch and share their thoughts about the projects. After a fun and relaxed introductory meeting, we went on a tour around Čakovec High School. During the tour, the students were impressed by the school’s physiotherapy cabinet as well as the cabinet of general practice nurses, whose practical we visited and briefly participated in. In the Čakovec High School Choir rehearsal rooms, the musically talented students could not refrain from singing and playing instruments, so we agreed that the students will also put on a musical performance as a part of the project.
   At 9.30 a.m. we boarded a bus that was waiting for us in front of the school, and we set off for Rhythm with a Horse Centre in Stubičke Toplice for the second part of the exchange. After a two-hour ride, we were warmly welcomed by Josip Knezić, a bachelor of physiotherapy and occupational therapy and a licensed hippotherapist. During his lecture, the students learned what hippotherapy is, its goals, indications and contraindications, and its effect on the patient. The students found the lecture quite interesting, so they gladly participated by asking different questions, the answers to which will help them in their projects. After the end of the theoretical part, the students were escorted to the riding arena, where they tried to lead a horse, became acquainted with the role of a hippotherapist, and experienced the influence of hippotherapy and horse-riding by taking on the role of the patient, all under the expert guidance of hippotherapists. Afterwards, we had lunch, during which we exchanged our impressions and agreed to hold the second exchange at the Viktorovac High School and hippotherapy centre in Sisak at the end of November. Upon our arrival to Čakovec, our educational and fun meeting ended with laughter and singing. We eagerly await another exchange and look forward to seeing everybody again!
