8th March is International Women’s Day. Interesting to see that it is a trending topic on twitter for today with an interesting assortment of hashtags! In the past, at our school, we have celebrated by:-
- taking all female students and staff down to the nearby Apex Park for a picnic lunch.
- encouraging all students to come to school in something purple
- giving each student a purple ribbon to wear
It is really an event here in Russia. Men try to do their best even some days before the holiday.Yesterday the city traffic collapsed, the price of flowers went several times higher.It is usually a family holiday. Spring is in the air, love and all that.
we have school off
