We are starting traditions to bring joy...
by Katerina Pegg
Last year, we visited the retirement home Chválkovice in Olomouc, and this year we continued the new ISO tradition with another visit to bring joy to all those who live there.
There was a great interest for this visit, particularly from our oldest primary students (Y5/Y6) and all our CS1 students (Y7/Y8, Y9/Y10). The students were so enthusiastic about visiting the elderly people that they organised their break times for rehearsing. We had a lot of Czech Christmas carols being performed, accompanied by students playing instruments along with the singing.
The elderly people saw some fine Irish dance moves by our primary students, Natka Králová, Sabina, and Lilly. They also sang along with our students to some famous Czech carols,such as “Půjdem spolu do Betléma” a “Vánoce, Vánoce”.
We ended our visit by sharing some Christmas cards,which the students made themselves for the elderly people. Our students were so happy to be involved in their local community that they expressed a wish we do such visits more often. We will try to make keep this tradition in the years to come.
