I forgot to write about teachers day in my previous post.
Last Friday was teachers day, this is a national celebratory day during which teachers, like dads at fathers day, are shown appreciation. Students look up their (favourite) teachers and present them with small gifts.
In Nederland there is also a teachers day but it goes mostly unnoticed except for maybe the cake from the principal in the teachers lounge.
Here it is very clearly present, students run around during lunch break to hand out their gifts.
And I’m very happy to say that even I, who has only been at the school for a few weeks, received some gifts: flowers and the sweetest card I have ever had the pleasure to encounter!
