It has been a long tradition to organize a cafe in Rakvere Basic School on Valentine’s Day. The preparations for this event start much earlier and it is always carried out by our 8-graders.
With the help of our technology teacher the appropriate recipes in English are chosen and in English lessons they are translated as well as the units of volume are transformed. This is followed by practical testing which results in picking out the most suitable recipes to be offered in the cafe.
Poster are made to advertise the event.
The day before Valentine’s the cookery class is busy and schoolhouse smells good. Students also calculate the prices, and make recipe booklets to enable the others to try out their favourites at home, too.
During breaks the cafe is open for everybody and both teachers and students buy and enjoy the pastry.In the cafe it is also possible to have photos with friends taken and listen to good music.
The students learn a lot about the basic principles of how to run a cafe and all the rest enjoy a cheerful event.
