Belgium is a small country but from time to time you don’t need a magnifying glass to find us. Sometimes we are really big. Like yesterday when we had the award ceremony of the Queen Paola Prize for Education. This year the competition was dedicated to primary school projects. Teachers and pupils of the winning entries were invited by HM the Queen to the beautiful greenhouses of the Royal Castle in Brussels.
This very stylish and classy ceremony expresses huge respect of the Court and the highest authorities of our country for the daily work of teachers in the classroom. It also expresses huge respect for the pupils, for the future of Belgium.
