Monday - 13th May: Welcome Show

 On Monday morning students had a change to attend lessons together with their host students. At 10am Gladis and Hans-Martty showed them around and teacher Evelyn gave a tour for teachers. Then it was time to gather in our assembly hall.

Our welcome was hosted by Form 8 student Egert and form 6 student Diana.

Diana: Dear  students, teachers and honoured guests. More than 2 years ago Comenius project „Water – the Spring of Life” began. During those two years we have organized lots of activities and have  got acquainted with  four different European schools. 
Diana: Welcome Spain!
Diana: Welcome France!

Diana: Welcome Turkey!
Diana: Welcome Italy!
Diana: Let our welcome concert now begin. Liisbet is going to play Yiruma’s „River in You” on the piano.

Egert: Next our headmaster Mrs Piret Kallaste welcomes the guest.
Egert: Our concert continues with a song of a stream written by an Estonian composer Jaan Tätte. 

As the river flows
the sea sometimes glows
By the ocean
the secret potion
creates the waves
which swim into caves
As I sit by the stream,
where I always go to dream
I realize who really cares
about the ocean's tears.

This poem was written by our student Katarin Leppik. Our next piece of music will be performed by Kerttu. It  is also about water. Rather stormy water. 

Egert: Several our students go to Kehtna’s music and arts school. You’ve heard them playing the piano and singing. Next Andres is going to perform a song “Rainbow” on the trumpet. 


Diana: Nature is worth discovering. Every ripple on water, sign on sand or group of geese in the sky tells its own story. So does a river, lake or a sea. I’m holding a book where 5 project partners gathered their legends about water.

Partner schools

ESTONIA: Kehtna Primary School is situated in the village of 1,200. There are no big towns nearby, although the capital Tallinn is just 60km to the north.
