Russia traditionally celebrates the Teacher’s Day in October. This year was no different: teachers, pupils, parents and Embassy staff — everyone gathered on at the Russian Embassy’s School in Pretoria on 2 October to cheer at our past and current mentors.
The students prepared short comic sketches on the humorous side of a typical school routine and the teachers-pupils relations. These scenes caused quite a few laughs and received well-deserved ovations from the audience.
Some of the younger children also pitched in and sang songs in the honour of their teachers.
The teachers thanked the Russian Embassy for its assistance and the students for their creativity, wished everyone, including the attending parents and relatives of the students a good Teacher’s Day.
