On 16 May 2022, after the COVID-19 pandemic has weakened and 2.5 years after the last meeting at the Võru Kreutzwaldi School in the Republic of Estonia, we met all together again in the Nordplus project “Dialects and Old Folk Crafts” at Pastendė Basic School of the Republic of Latvia and renewed the activities. First of all, the guests from Estonia and Lithuania were friendly welcomed by Pastende Basic School’s students and teachers team and the headmaster Lelde Hodjačika. The project activities started in the school assembly hall with the anthem of the unity of the three Baltic nations "The Baltics Are Awaking". Finally, each team briefly introduced their school and themselves. We ended the day with an introductory evening where we all sang and danced to animated karaoke and played games.
On the second day of the Nordplus project "Dialects and Old Folk Crafts", after a delicious breakfast, we were all involved to attractive activities in the art studio "Kurši". The students were divided into three groups, according to old Latvian traditions, weaving national braids, making dolls from threads and also making wooden handicrafts. In the afternoon we got acquainted with the town of Pastende using the interactive tasks of the QR code. We ended the cold spring day with a sports competition.
