At EIS, we value multilingualism which goes hand in hand with understanding and respect for different cultures. As part of our Mother Tongue Week, our language teachers, in cooperation with department heads, organized a series of events related to the current celebrations of our predominantly Latvian and Russian mother tongue cultures for the beginning of spring, known as Meteni in Latvia, Maslenitsa in Slavic countries, Shrove Tuesday in England, and Mardi Gras in many other countries.
On February 15, our very little learners in Preschool had themed events in their classrooms and a themed pancake meal. Primary students participated in various fun-themed activities in the assembly hall. They could purchase treats using the make-believe currency that they have received during the contests, and of course, it all culminated with a feast of pancakes provided by the school. We would like to thank all the parents who were able to participate.
