On March 17th we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day at our school and kindergarten for the first time. We can say a lot about this event….but definitely not that you could get bored there! We were learning Irish dance (which isn’t as easy as it may seem!), filled our pots with chocolate coins during the treasure hunt and created a lot of colorful arts & crafts with shamrock and rainbow themes. What’s more, we could paint our faces, make a selfie with funny props in the Irish Photo Booth and when we got peckish we could try rainbow jelly, colorful fruit snacks and drink delicious healthy cocktail – which was also green, of course! Additionally, our native teacher, Marc (who is an Irishman himself), prepared a presentation about his country, kindergarten children sang St. Patrick’s Day songs, and the first-graders made a puppet theatre, where they presented the story of St. Patrick. There was also a costume competition for the greenest person. We just couldn’t get bored! Everybody – children and parents – got involved in all the activities and nobody hurried home! We hope that we gave birth to a new tradition of St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in our schools.
