This year the preparations for the "big" day started some days earlier. Our students were waiting eagerly to meet with our friends once more. So, on the 9th of May we gathered at the amphitheatre of our school to take part in the netmeeting.
First we presented a theatrical happening of the seizure of Europe from Zeus who was tranformed into a vicius taurus (hard time for Europe...).

Then, five dancers wearing the traditional costumes of each partner-country made some maypole dancing.

We had fun on Europe Day. We had practiced our Italian Dance, the Tarantella. The senior class, Primary 7, learned it first with the help of their teacher, Ms O'Connor, and they taught it to the other senior class, P7/6 and then both classes taught Primary 4 and 4/5. We practiced the day before Europe day and then after the video conference we went outside into the playground and danced together.

When we got back upstairs we had a surprise, we had food from the countries of our partner schools to try, yummy! Some of the things we had to eat were:

From Italy we had salami, sundried tomatoes, breadsticks with tomato dip, Italian cheese, olives, peperoni

From Spain we had manchego cheese, serano ham, tortilla, griddled peppers

From Poland we had, Polish pate, sausage, cabbage, chocolate, biscuits

From Greece we had Feta cheese with olives, honey, nougat, hummus,

and much more!

Here is the video of the dance. We decorated the playground with Italian flags! It was cold outside but it was at least dry!!
