Carneval (1 March 2022)Where we celebrated last year’s carneval online, this year, on 1 March, it could be held “live” on our outdoor terrace. After getting an official “stamp of approval,” the morning program could begin. The day was tailor-made for various fun activities. The masked revelers danced and feasted, and there was a fierce fight with a bear (sorry: hippo), which fortunately ended in a draw. And at the end, we buried a bass. Thank you all who participated in our carneval fun.
A week with animals (February 2022)
We love animals, especially domestic ones. And so we spent a week in February visiting them. On Monday, we learned about cows; ours was called Valentýnka. We tried out milking and learned that it isn’t at all easy. On Tuesday, we fed and stroked the Cameroon goats we have in an enclosure in our garden. Wednesday was chicken day: The chickens were only in a picture, but the eggs were real. Thursday was dedicated to pigs, Friday to sheep – unfortunately only paper ones. Throughout the week we sang, recited nursery rhymes, and looked at pictures. We all liked it very much and are looking forward to our next event.
Semester report cards – quiet and unassuming (31 January 2022)The atmosphere at school at the end of January – i.e., during report-card time – reflected the state of the coronavirus in the country as a whole. Absences, quarantines, isolation... again and again. And so students were presented their report cards one at a time, depending on when they were at school. No traditional events or ceremonies. It was all very quiet and subdued. We look forward to making up for it in June, when the end-of-year report cards can be presented with a nice, big celebration for all. Even our garden gnome is beginning to feel a bit abandoned!
St. Nicholas surprise (6 December 2021)
On the morning of Monday, 6 December 2021, we were visited by St. Nicholas. He came early, when it was still dark, meaning that none of us saw him this year. But he left everybody his greetings and a vitamin-filled surprise. And our colleagues Katka and Pavla provided for a festive atmosphere and something nice to eat. Thank you!
Autumn-ing (November 2021)
Not even Covid can keep us from enjoying a nice autumn morning together. We made a still-life out of pumpkin leaves and took pictures with the kids. And because this is the season when the fish ponds are emptied, our kids also made sure to go fishing. Everyone had a big catch, too – a (plush) zander. The weather even began to play along before lunch. The sun came out and we had great fun all morning long.
Start of the 2021/2022 school year, or Welcome to the Festival (15 September 2021)
On Wednesday, 15 September 2021, we got together in the garden to launch the 2021/2022 school year. We are looking forward to all the things we’ll be doing together over the next ten months. This year, we are envisioning our ride through the school year in the spirit of a multigenre culture festival. What’s that mean? One class formed a band, another is practicing a dance performance, and others are writing their own book, shooting a documentary, doing street art, or making art based on Trnka’s The Garden. It’s going to be a really diverse festival. And as one might expect, it will be full of surprises.
