On Friday, our students and teachers alike warmly came together at school to celebrate Christmas at our Christmas event. This was a unique opportunity for our staff to share all their Christmas traditions from Poland, and for our students to learn about the special Polish customs!
Our main event was food tasting – the Christmas Eve meal on 24th December in Poland consists of 12 dishes, savoury and sweet, all of which our students had the chance to sample. Along with each dish was a presentation elucidating what it is as well as some history about it, in both English and Polish 🙂
The next activity was decorating gingerbread; a chance to be artistic and create something both beautiful and delicious. This is another big tradition for us in Poland…
Finally, at the end, our very own Santa Claus – Piotr, came to visit us, bearing small gifts to us all! Some of our students also brought small gifts and cards for us – thank you so much!
Coincidentally, we also had 3 birthdays to celebrate on the same day! Our wonderful owner Wiola, and also Maher and Arash.
It was a really amazing event, and a great way to start off Christmas festivities! Thank you to everyone who attended to make it a memorable and extraordinary event!!
We`d appreciate if you`d share with us your customs and traditions for the Christmas period. We`ll be pleased to post it on our FB page!
