Parents-Teachers' Ball in the spirit of the Baroque

This year Tarczy Lajos Elementary School organized its Parents-Teachers' Ball in the spirit of the Baroque, and not only did the decorations and programs represent it but Venczel Csaba, headmaster and Hardi Tünde also greeted their guests dressed in Baroque costumes. - „This year's carnival ball takes place in the spirit of Baroque. The elegant decoration, dance, music performed and poems recited by our students, recall the spirit of this era. In the Baroque era a ball was always a prestigious event, and it has the same importance in our school life.

Cake tasting party

On 14th December the Bilingual Section organized its cake tasting party for the second time. We welcomed all the foreign and the Hungarian students and their kind parents.
For this event we also asked the parents to make some cookies and provide their recipes for other people to try at home if they wished.
The main aim of this event event-beside to attune to Christmas - was to test international cookies and bring the multicultural community closer to each other.
At the party the guests could try more than 50 different cakes and sweets. Beside the delicious cakes the mood was also intensified by fragrant hot tea and nice Christmas music.


On Wednesday, November 23rd our students from the USA, Hungary, Sweden, Norway, Holland, Poland and Bulgaria participated in a performance to celebrate the American holiday, Thanksgiving. The children performed in plays and recited poems. We are thankful for their hard work and dedication in making the performance a success.

The Thanksgiving Story

Most stories of Thanksgiving history start with the harvest celebration of the pilgrims and the Native Americans that took place in the autumn of 1621. Although they did have a three-day feast in celebration of a good harvest, and the local natives did participate, this "first thanksgiving" was not a holiday, simply a gathering.

A ’dead good’ Halloween

At the end of October -according to our traditions-various witches, ghosts, vampires, mummies, monsters, skeletons and black cats got possession of the evocatively decorated gym.
The party started with the Halloween performances of the classes. There were happy and creepy poems, scary songs, ghostly chants and a play too. These little performances were really successful and enjoyed all the children and parents were present. Introductions of the creative and eerie costumes with background music were greatly applauded too. (We have never seen so much little witches!)

History of Halloween

Halloween falls on October 31st each year in North America and other parts of the world.
Like many other holidays, Halloween has evolved and changed throughout history. Over 2,000 years ago people called the Celts lived in what is now Ireland, the UK, and parts of Northern France. November 1 was their New Year's Day. They believed that the night before the New Year (October 31) was a time when the living and the dead came together.
More than a thousand years ago the Christian church named November 1 All Saints Day (also called All Hallows.) This was a special holy day to honor the saints and other people who died for their religion. The night before All Hallows was called Hallows Eve. Later the name was changed to Halloween.

The school year started with the Multicultural Camp again

This year we organized the third annual traditional school opening of the Multicultural Tarczy Camp located in the romantic landscape of „Árnyaserdő" guesthouse. This year 30 Hungarian and 9 foreign students from grades 2-8 participated in the camp.
We concentrated on the characteristics of the Bilingual Section, teaching in both Hungarian and English besides the traditional camp programs, we also provided students with the opportunity to get acquainted with nature and to encourage healthy eating.
Here is a little taste of the three-day program:

Camp for the first graders

The school preparation camp was held on August 29th and 30th, 2011 for our future first graders at the Bilingual Section in our school. Zsanett Kiss and Dóra Horváth teachers were waiting for the students with playful activities.
