Get to know Jászság! – Jászjákóhalma
In the Jászság group 4, 16 children from 8 settlements go to the Community House in Jászberény in the capital of Jászság and we would like to get to know the values and sights of each other’s settlements. So the slogan of one of our summer camps is: “Get to know Jászság!” became and in the planned five days we will walk through the children’s settlements on a hiking trail we dreamed of. In the first round, the families help to map their own village and together with the children make a description of the sights and a hiking trail, then take photos of the buildings and landscapes. We are constantly sharing these compilations with you. Our seventh settlement: Jászjákóhalma. The description was compiled by: Ágnes Oláh Anna, Murzsa Amira Vanda also helped with navigation. ” Andrea Hábenciusnalla Balla, mentor, Jászság group 4
