Camelia Moldovan
(principal CNER, Cluj-Napoca, Romania):

β€œI would definitely recommend implementing a Smart Hands approach to Principals of other schools because it’s a way in which pupils discover having skills they did not know about. I was very impressed by a bird house that our pupils built during a learning activity in The Netherlands. It was the first time the girls had ever built something made of wood and it was their own creation ; they were so proud of themselves they wanted
to take the product back home to show it to their parents.
Up to that moment the pupils had been convinced that theory was the only thing they were good at, so the Smart Hands approach gave them the opportunity to use their practical skills.
– a very rare thing nowadays.”
