Hello from Garðabær in Iceland


Hello all of you
There are about 300 students in Flataskoli at the age of 6 to 12. We told the students about this project in late December and now we are getting some pictures to put on the web. All of the students in the school are allowed to take part and we think this is a wonderful and a very interesting project.
Last week our 1st grade students took the camera with them when they went out with their teacher to play in the sun and we only have the sun in the sky for about 4 hours at this time of year. We put the link to this blog on our website and we sent the parents an email to call their attention to the project so they could guide their children while they were taking pictures. As you can see on the picture there is no snow in Iceland and we are having plus degrees on Celcius.

I know that you are taking this contest very seriously, Iceland. I look forward very much to seeing the results from your children.
