Middle School Folgaria - Lavarone

ITALY

Our school, Folgaria Lavarone Luserna Middle School, is in the north of Italy, in Trentino. Our students are between 11 and 14 years old and are divided in two school buildings. One is in Folgaria, where there are also the headmaster's office and the secretaries' office, and one is in Lavarone, where there are the students from Lavarone and from Luserna. Our school isn't big. The two schools are very little; Folgaria has 56 students, Lavarone has 47 students.

Folgaria, Lavarone, Luserna are small mountain villages in the north of Italy, in a region called Trentino Alto Adige. You can practice a lot of sports there: you can go skiing, walking, by mountain bike, play golf or tennis.

The school year starts at the beginning of September and ends at the beginning of June. We have two weeks holiday also for Christmas and one week for Easter.

We go to school from Monday to Friday. School starts at 8.00 a.m. and finishes at 4.00 p.m. except on Thursday when we finish at 12.30. On Tuesday afternoon there are optional activities that means each student follows only the lessons she/he is interested in.

Folgaria and Lavarone are two little villages on an highland, called "Altipiani Cimbri" (mt 1200-mt 1500). There is another village on our highland: Luserna. This village has a very interesting history as its inhabitants came from Germany in 1000 to work for the Prince Bishop, who reigned througout all the region. The inhabitants of Luserna are still speeking the old german dialect, they spoke more than 1000 years ago. Their region is now protected beause of their linguistic  and historical peculiarities. The children, who come form Luserna, go to school in Lavarone.
