Wellbeing of teachers: Thanksgiving Dinner

As I mentioned before the wellbeing of teachers is a crucial aspect of the education system and has a DIRECT impact on the overall quality of education. So I help to organize social events for teachers. It’s important to consider the preferences and interests of the teachers when planning social events to ensure they are well-received and enjoyable.

Thanksgiving dinner has been a popular social event at EISB for several years. Thanksgiving dinner is also informally called turkey dinner. It is a large meal generally centered on a large roasted turkey.

Thanksgiving began as a day of giving thanks for the blessings of the harvest and of the preceding year. Although Thanksgiving has historical roots in religious and cultural traditions, it has long been celebrated as a secular holiday as well.


It is a national holiday celebrated on various dates in October and November  mostly in the United States and Canada, and unofficially in countries like Brazil, Germany and the Philippines. At EISB we usually have it around November 24th.

Thanksgiving could be considered the largest eating event in the United States as measured by retail sale and also by estimates of individual food intake. People often consume as much as three or four thousand calories during the course of the dinner.

If we foster a positive and supportive community through social activities, I believe it has a positive impact on the wellbeing of teachers and, consequently, on the overall educational environment. The school canteen turns into a beautiful and delicious place at this day thanks to Miss Lubica Plankova who is in charge of bringing food and decorating the tables. THANK YOU.
