Gathering at school

On Thursday all our school family gathered to the assembly hall to hear and see what our teachers and students experienced in Spain. Teachers Meeli, Raigo and Katre together with students had prepared a slideshow and gave extra comments. We learned how teacher Meeli had fallen into the ocean water, how the girls had to get use to the custom of wearing shoes indoors, how teacher Katre impressed the local mayor with her speech in Spanish, also how teacher Raigo used his knowledge when communicating with Spanish teachers.

In addition we gave prizes to those students who had taken part in Comenius activities last term.

Regina, Mark, Liivika, Liisbet, Kelly, Arlis-Sander, Kristina, Martin, Marten, Daniel and Gerda got a Comenius diploma and a prize for drawing the best logo designs. Surprise prizes drawn among those who had cast their votes went to the students in form 2,3 and 5. Marten was praised for being the only student who managed to find answers to teacher Katre's quiz. Best authors of water-themed poems were Diana Jääger, Sten, Kaarel-Eerik and Katarin. Many thanks went to teachers Meeli, Raigo, Katre and Edda for supporting the students and preparing the materials. 

This term we will have again activities and competitions for everybody.
