A celebration of poetry

On February 9, a real poetry festival - a school recitation contest - was held at Pai School. This year the pupils' Council chose the theme for the competition - "Family". Teachers found very interesting modern works, which our reciters performed with pleasure. More than 60 reciters from the youngest - first graders, to graduates, performed poems on this day. Some children prepared performances in two or even three languages: Russian, Estonian and English. The traditional recitation contest has been held at Paju School for more than 30 years. And it always enjoys popularity. The children prepare diligently. And even illnesses do not prevent them from taking part. Some participants got sick just a day before February 9 and sent us their video performances. The audience in our school is very grateful and always welcomes the artists and thanks them for their performance with long applause!
