THE HEADMASTER'S DREAM COME TRUE!

 

At the beginning it was only a wall newspaper "The School News". A group of a few tenformers with the headmaster's idea and their editor Jolanta Lukenskaitė started releasing it in September 1992. It had a handwritten form then and it contained articles about important school life events, sports results, cartoons, greetings, sympathies and s.o. Later it acquired a typewritten form and now it is a computer edited document. It has been released once or twice a year. Džilda Butkuvienė, our Lithuanian teacher was responsible for its editing during the period from 1995 to 2008. Since that year she moved her house and changed her work place. The edition of the school newspaper for two years was continued by Jolanta, the founder of our newspaper. Now the newspaper is being prepared and edited by Raimonda Klangauskaitė, another Lithuanian teacher at our school. Our newspaper has its editorial column now and pictures from different events have been used to illustrate articles. We can get acquainted with our school main event descriptions, students' essays and poetry in it.
