Congratulations!

25 Feb

 

Today our blog "English & Computers – My Friends" marked the 100th flag. It is a real event because this means we had visitors from 100 countries from all over the world.

We thank those who have been curious enough to visit us and we expect them in the future as well. We’d also like to thank our pupils who contributed essentially to the existence of this blog.

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

14 Feb

imageRoses, heart-shaped chocolates, greeting cards and lots of love-symbols of a special , longed for celebration, Valentine’s Day. Although this year the day of February 14 is almost drowned in a sea of snow, people still celebrate love and shelter spring in their souls. In spite of being ”imported“ from the USA and sometimes seen as a Western kitsch, the Romanians like Valentine’s Day and somehow have adopted it. We have a similar celebration on February 24, called Dragobete named after a character from Romanian folklore who was supposed to be the son of Baba Dochia. Part of his name is the word drag ("dear"), which can also be found in the word dragoste ("love"). In recent years, Romania has also started celebrating Valentine’s Day, despite already having Dragobete as a traditional holiday.

The 5th grade pupils at our school made Valentine cards and placed them on a big red winged heart; it was a very pleasant activity and they enjoyed every minute of it. I hope you’ll like it too.

SNAPSHOT OF MY TOWN

9 Feb

imageSituated in Prahova, Romania’s most populated county, the town of Ploiesti is the place we call “home”. Although the air is not always as fresh as we’d like, and there should be more green zones around, Ploiesti still is a place full of history and it means a great deal to us, those who live and work here. That’s why the 5th graders tried to capture the essence of their hometown in the projects they made for the English class. You are about to discover the sights of our town and maybe you’ll be curious to find out more about it. Enjoy!
