Mother’s Day

30 May

 

Feliz Dia Das Mâes!

Every year, in May takes place Mother’s day, an international event. However, it isn’t celebrated on the same day in all the countries. Thus, here in Brazil, it is held traditionally on the second Sunday in  May : that is to say , on May12th , this year.

Like many Brazilian schools, Yolanda Queiroz school decided to organize a little ceremony in honour of mothers, on the friday before Mother’s day.

Even if we could not take part in the event, we followed all the preparation of that big day. For this occasion, a few days before,each class had to  learn a song with the choir teacher’s help : Pr Wilson. It was a song by Tim Maia called “Primavera”. The lyrics are below:

Quando o inverno chegar
Eu quero estar junto a ti
Pode o outono voltar
Eu quero estar junto a ti

Porque (é primavera)
Te amo (é primavera)
Te amo, meu amor

Trago esta rosa (para te dar)
Trago esta rosa (para te dar)
Trago esta rosa (para te dar)

Meu amor…
Hoje o céu está tão lindo (sai chuva)
Hoje o céu está tão lindo (sai chuva)

Mother’s Day respected a very precise schedule. Children came with their mothers at 7:30 am, and it opened with the presentation of Unifor’s “Camerata”. Then teachers showed a video recorded with the children in the school. Afterwards, a ballerina from the Unifor’s dance company, introduced herself and gave us a little demonstration of her work. Thereafter, Pr Wilson, the Choir teacher did the same and children sang “Primavera”which was carefully prepared before .

Finally, it ended at 9:30 am, with all the kids giving to their mother a little gift they made in class.
