День без табака

World No Tobacco Day

World No Tobacco Day is observed around the world every year on May 31. It is meant to encourage a 24-hour period of abstinence from all forms of tobacco consumption across the globe. The day is further intended to draw global attention to the widespread prevalence of tobacco use and to negative health effects, which currently lead to 5.4 million deaths worldwide annually. The member states of the World Health Organization (WHO) created World No Tobacco Day (WNTD) in 1987. In the past twenty years, the day has been met with both enthusiasm and resistance across the globe from governments, public health organizations, smokers, growers, and the tobacco industry. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_No_Tobacco_Day

Шоу цветов в Лондоне

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show, officially the Great Spring Show is a garden show held each year on five days in May by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea in Chelsea, London. It is the most famous show in the United Kingdom, perhaps the most famous gardening event in the world. Every May thousands of keen gardeners arrive in London to visit the Flower Show. Here visitors can buy plants, enjoy dazzling floral displays and get expert gardening advice. It is always a privilege to receive an invitation to London’s annual Chelsea Flower Show. This year's glittering event on 25-29 May 2010 was, as always, superb. Now it was in its 88th year. Journalists agreed that there was something special in the air this year, whether it was the heat, the extra long list of celebrities or some very unusual gardens designed by new names at Chelsea.

Orchids are out in force at this year's Chelsea Flower Show. Eleven displays in the Great Pavilion feature orchids, while both cool-growing and tropical orchids put in appearances in the gardens. Taiwan's reputation as the “Orchid Kingdom” has been further enhanced as Queen Elizabeth II praised the quality of Taiwanese orchids during a stop at the country's booth. This is the first year that Taiwan was invited to the annual Chelsea Flower Show. The queen was very surprised to learn that Taiwan supplies one-third of the orchids in the global market. http://www.chinapost.com.tw/taiwan/foreign-affairs/2010/05/26/258042/Queen-Elizabeth.htm Top new plants http://www.rhs.org.uk/Shows-Events/RHS-Chelsea-Flower-Show/2010/Plants/Plant-features/Top-10-plants

Последний звонок

The 25th of May is a sad and happy holiday in our school. We have parted with our pupils of the 11 forms. They are not pupils now, they are schoolleavers. They are glad to start a new period in their lives. Childhood has been over! And I am very proud of you, my beloved pupils of the group from 11A. I remember our lessons, our parties, our talks. 

And now you are so adult and clever. I'll miss you. I wish you good luck and success in future.

День диалога

World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development
is a United Nations–sanctioned international holiday for the promotion of diversity issues. It is currently held on May 21. The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed this holiday due to UNESCO's Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity in November 2001. It was proclaimed by UN Resolution 57/249. The World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development is an opportunity to help communities understand the value of cultural diversity and learn how to live together in harmony. It was adopted in the wake of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Let's discuss every problem! Don't be afraid to ask your parents, teachers, friends any question you like. To avoid misunderstanding it's necessary to speak to each other! Dialogues are for developing! For friendship! For peace in the world!

С Днем Победы!

Чевствуем погибших и живых,
Тех, кто пал, Отчизну защищая,
Имена навек запомним их,
Жизнь они свою за нас отдали.
С каждым годом все короче ряд
Очевидцев тех боев кровавых,
Пусть же взрывы больше не гремят,
Не тревожат засторелой раны.
Ваш геройский подвиг не забыть,
Пусть года бегут неумолимо,
Но сирени бархатная кисть
В вашу честь цветет неопалима

C 9 мая!

8 мая в Великобритании

                           Victory in Europe Day
VE Day marks a very important event in World War II - the end of the War with Germany on Tuesday 8 May 1945. For almost six years from 1939 to 1945 Britain, with other countries of Europe, fought the toughest war it had ever experienced. Six years of bloodshed that had killed approximately 382,700 members of the British Armed forces and 67,100 civilians were over. Finally, in a school house in Rhins, Germany's unconditional surrender was signed at 2:41pm on 7 May. (Active operations by the German forces would cease by 11.01pm 8 May.) At 3pm on 8 May, Britain's Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, made a radio broadcast announcing that war in Europe was finally at an end. He made the broadcast from the War Cabinet Office, the same room that in 1939 Neville Chamberlain had made a speech announcing that the country was at war. Shortly after Churchill's speech King George VI, Queen Elizabeth and the two princesses came out onto the balcony at Buckingham Palace to acknowledge the huge crowd below.

Праздник весны и труда

May Day
The first day of the month of May is known as May Day. In Britain May day marked the end of the harsh winter months, welcomed the beginning of spring, and optimistically looked forward to the bright and productive months. For the British, largely in rural areas, it was a major annual festival and was celebrated through out the country, especially on the first of May with music, dancing and games. Traditional English May Day celebrations include Morris dancing, crowning a May Queen and dancing around a Maypole. May Day celebrations have their origins in the Roman festival of Flora, goddess of fruit and flowers, which marked the beginning of summer. It was held annually from April 28th to May 3rd.
A traditional May Day dance - Maypole Dancing
On May Day, people used to cut down young trees and stick them in the ground. People danced around the tree poles in celebration of the end of winter and the start of the fine weather that would allow planting to begin. Maypoles were once common all over England and were kept from one year to the next. Schools would practice skipping round the pole for weeks before the final show on the village greens. The end results would be either a beautiful plaited pattern of ribbons round the pole or a tangled cat's cradle, depending on how much rehearsing had been done.
May Day in Russia
May Day in our country was synonymous with International Workers' Day, or Labour Day, a day of political demonstrations and celebrations organised by unions and other groups. Now it is the holiday of spring and labour.
