EISB celebrates Chuseok, one of the most important traditional holidays celebrated in Korea.

English International School of Bratislava takes pride in promoting cultural diversity and enhancing our students’ educational experience through special events. During the recent Korean Week, we embarked on an exciting journey to South Korea to celebrate Chuseok, a Korean festival filled with traditions and significance.


Chuseok, also known as Korean Thanksgiving Day, is one of the most important holidays in Korean culture. During this festival, families come together to give thanks for the harvest and share traditional foods.

To gain a deeper understanding of this celebration, our student, Kona, visited different classes in the school to introduce Chuseok and present some of the planned festivities for the week.

Drawing Competition

One of the highlights of our Cultural Week was the Chuseok-themed drawing competition. Students showcased their creativity by depicting the most significant elements of this festival. We are pleased to announce the competition winners:

– Primary and Preschool: Ela (Y2)

– Emiliia (Y8)

We congratulate all participants for their beautiful artworks that reflected the richness of Korean culture.

Special Assembly and Korean Food Tasting

We concluded the Cultural Week with a special assembly where Kona presented informative slides about Chuseok. Students and staff enjoyed a detailed insight into the customs, history, and significance of this festival in Korean life.

To wrap up our celebration, Kona’s family treated us to a delightful tasting of Korean cuisine, allowing everyone to savor the authentic flavors of Korean culture.

At EISB, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to Kona and her family for their invaluable contribution to our Korean Cultural Week. We also thank all students, staff, and visitors who made this Cultural Week a success.

We look forward to continuing to explore and celebrate cultural diversity in future events. Thank you all for your participation in this exciting Cultural Week!
