GET TO KNOW: MULTINATIONAL RUSSIA!
BY SERGEY BELNIKOV | DECEMBER 22, 2019
Russia is a multinational country, and every nation and its traditions must be respected. Therefore, our school has been hosting a festival for many years, dedicated to the peoples living in Russia. This time it was especially interesting. Classes have been preparing for the festival for several weeks. Each group had its own people, and the task was the same for everyone: to show its customs, traditions and features. Some classes were able to convey this in a fairy tale, dance or in a skit, some treated the jury to national dishes. There were people from the nations of Komi, Voguls, Ukrainians, Udmurts, Greeks, Turkmens, Yakuts, Russians, Bulgarians, Kazakhs, and Chinese.
The initial stage of the event was the creation of posters. Each class had to make a poster about its people,and indicate its traditions. After the opening of the festival, judging of the painted posters began. Classes performed according to the results of the draw. Some classes introduced the audience to their people, presenting small scenes: fairy tales, and beliefs.
Some students were even able to discover the traditions of their nationality through dance. Also, there were some traditional treats; on the tables of the judges there were national food dishes and a loaf. Bright costumes, smiles of children — what could be better. Most students did not even imagine how many people of different nationalities live in their country. I think that the festival’s task was completed, because after all what has happened you immediately realize that our friendship is our unity!
The event ended with an award and a common photo of all participants. The school principal, Tatyana Mikhailovna Zaostrovnykh, praised everyone who took part and introduced the audience and the judges to the peoples who inhabit our great multinational Russia.
The result was a real bunch of impressions.
