Traditions of Mardipäev and Kadripäev

On November 23, a big traditional holiday dedicated to Mardipäev and Kadripäev was held at Paju school. Cheerful mummers walked around the school, sang songs and wished everyone a successful year, a good harvest and good health. And then, for students in grades 1-5, there was a station game prepared by Estonian language teachers. We played, danced, remembered the traditions of folk holidays and performed interesting tasks.

Traditions through the centuries

On November 24, the 6th city student conference of creative works was held in Narva Laste Loomemaja, organized by the Department of Culture of Narva.
The Payu school team also performed with honor at this event: Ksenia Gukova, Polina Glavatskaya, Ekaterina Zaretskaya, Elena Chasovskikh. They not only presented the costumes that in the old days girls wore for the New Year's Eve holiday, but also talked about the history and traditions of this holiday. We thank Irina Vladimirovna Alekseeva for the excellent preparation of the team!

Charity concert and Christmas market

Every year, the school's Dela Paju Student Council determines who will receive funds during the Charity Concert. This year there were a lot of ideas and it was difficult for the guys to decide. Then the idea arose to hold a school-wide vote. On November 21, teachers, students, and technical staff took part in the voting. As a result, out of four proposed ideas, the idea that won was to join the Narva Youth Center’s action and help the Päite loomapark zoo.
On December 6, the Paju school will host a traditional Christmas fair and a charity concert.
