Shakespeare lives in 2016… in Kikinda!

Shakespeare in Kikinda

school displays

In April and May  third- and fourth- year students of the social studies and language course of “Dušan Vasiljev” Grammar School in Kikinda marked the Bard’s anniversary in several ways. With their English teacher Dragana Bursać Ivetić they prepared a mini Shakespeare play quiz, a selection of the best quotes and a short biography, and displayed them in the school hall. In their English classes the students saw two films based on Shakespeare’s plays and a few famous monologues delivered by Serbian actors in “Nedeljnik”, and had discussions on them.

On May 10th “Shakespearing” final year pupils of primary schools took place in Kikinda Town Square: Shakespeare himself signed and stamped quiz leaflets for those who did his mini play quiz well. Master Will was assisted by three girls and modern Romeo and Juliet, who helped primary pupils find correct answers.

A selection of most interesting photographs concerning the Bard and his plays (including “Shakespeare lives in photography”) is exhibited in the school entrance hall, next to Dušan Vasiljev bust, throughout the year.
