We are extremely happy to present our project to all schoolovisioners! Our pupils of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades sing the song "Carpathians". We have chosen this song as it best describes our beautiful land and has the rhythm of Bukovinian national dancing. The dancing was choreographed by our primary school teacher Natalia Podorozhna.
In the chorus of our song it says, "I have wings because I am growing in the Carpathians where the eagle flies. I have blue eyes because in Ukraine the skies, the nights and the water are blue. I have golden hair like wheat because Ukrainian autumn is golden. I have a ringing voice because I am a Ukrainian girl. I feel sorry for those who don't like me":)
Best wishes to all participants!
The Ukrainian team from Chernivtsi specialised school #22.

The feast of St. Peter and St. Paul on June 29th, known as “L-Imnarja” marks an important event among Maltese popular festivities. “L-Imnarja” comes from the Italian word “luminaria” meaning “Festival of Light.” This recalls the illumination of the Mdina cathedral, the city walls of the Mdina old capital as a sign of rejoicing. In olden days, husbands committed themselves to taking their wives to this feast. An agricultural show of animals, vegetables, fruit, poultry and honey are held. Horse-racing competitions are still popular.

Since the author was Italian and the adventures take place in Italy, Pinocchio is closely related to the tradition of our country.
