Comenius meeting in Bulgaria (10.03.-14.03.)

This year in March Dana Žuravļova (Form 8) and Darja Kuzņecova (Form 11), who study at secondary school ”Premjers”, went to Bulgaria together with the teachers Aija Keivomege and Aija Zeltiņa to represent our school in the international Project Comenius “Save the past, live the present, imagine the future”. Schools from Turkey, Greece, Poland, Croatia, Romania and Bulgaria participate in this project.

During the meeting children told about natural sites and national parks which are protected in their countries. They were reading essays, made posters and proposed their own ways of natural environment protection. Fashion show was organized. The models were made of various recycled and ecological materials.

We have visited the Ethnographic Museum, the ruins of Tsarevets fortress and the Wax Museum to learn better the history, culture and traditions of Bulgaria. Everyone had an opportunity to not only watch but also learn Bulgarian national dance and to enjoy the taste of national cuisine.

Children learned a lot about the culture, traditions and natural diversity of participating countries, as well as developed and improved their communication and presentation skills.
