Students have difficulties because their families cope with difficult economic problems crisis. The family no longer meets the expectations of its role due to the fact that parents are or bezabotni or have to work too manogo and devote the necessary time and attention to their children. Often holidays are received without follow Bulgarian traditions. Our goal is to fill the missing gap and to give our students the knowledge, skills and competences on our cultural heritage, traditions and rituals.

Make dramatic reconstructions of rituals. In art lessons are made characteristic of our country martenitzas survachki. To make the connection of students with the third generation healthier organize joint kneading bread, breads, cakes, pies and other Bulgarian ritual breads, accompanied holidays and traditions of centuries. This project enables us to understand how our colleagues from Malta integrate in the curriculum knowledge of folklore and family traditions, what approaches and methods used to revive them and motivate students to engage in life those old and forgotten today practices. We think this is important because it connects us to our roots and where they go in the world, will remain Bulgarians and all will follow the same folk traditions.
