Thanksgiving Church Services 2019

13.10.2019 at 20:53

On October 11th, Talsi Christian Secondary School was celebrating Thanksgiving day with two wonderful church services. The first church service (grade 1-6) was opened by the youngest bell ensemble’s group. Later, the students sang songs «I Believe» and «Jesus At The Center». Two sketces were shown, the main message of which was to think about how much pain we do to each other not noticing that we hurt Jesus himself.

The second church service was also led by the pastor of Talsi Church «Dzīvā Ūdens Straumes», Aivars Straume, but teacher Aija Valgelina testified about God’s work in her life. The church was filled with beautiful songs and bell sounds. Students from grades 10 to 12 sketched the importance of telling the truth and not gossiping, which made everyone who was present reflect on their choices before it is too late.

We are grateful for this beautiful afternoon spent in a spiritual reflection.

October – Four-legged Friends’ Month

10.10.2019 at 08:32

From September to October, each student at Talsi Christian School was given the opportunity to donate dog and cat food, as well as warm blankets and pillows to be passed on to animals craving for some treats or new, soft sleeping arrangements in the autumn. On the morning of October 5th, members of the School Parliament, along with its leader Alla Ankmane, went to the Talsi Municipal Animal Shelter «Ausma» to caress and delight at least some of the little four-legged friends.

Together we are grateful for each donated food pack or blanket!

On September 27, our school hosted the annual Autumn’s Market, where students from first to fifth grade traded home-made treats, jewelry and other surprises. Heroes of the fairy tale by Anna Brigadere, princess Zeltīte and Sprīdītis, came to greet the small merchants, who sang songs about autumn gifts – mushrooms, berries and rhubarb. When the market was officially open, the hallways of the school cheered and chattered from the children’s laughter. 6th-12th grade pupils, teachers, staff members, parents and, of course, the participants themselves went to buy the treats with the boxes and bags they had brought.
