Latvian Language lessons were conducted by the teachers: Gita Pohevica, Ināra Vīksna (Form 11 A), Regina Bondere (Form 9 C), Dzintra Rubene (Form 10 A), Vineta Jēgere (Form 7C). Teachers Ruta Mita, Jolanta Čaunāne un Ināra Prosvirjakova prepared the event “Lieldienas” with the students of Form 3. All the lessons and the event were conducted on a high level. The guests reflected their very positive opinions in the feedback they gave at the end of the seminar.

On April 4, 2016 thirteen teachers from Riga Purvciems Secondary School visited Tallinn Humanitarian Gymnasium. They were shown round the school premises and they also visited three lessons: English (Year 8), Chemistry (Year10) and IT lesson. The level of the knowledge of the students was impressive and the atmosphere at school was very friendly. There was a follow-up meeting in the head teacher’s office during which the teachers asked and answered a lot of questions about the educational systems in both the countries.
