Competitions were organised for the children, parents and teachers. Participants included not only Apra but various other kindergartens (such as Amra, Alashara,Alias, and others). Such activities are judged to be good for the health of the children and for the clear enjoyment engendered. The head of the education department in Sukhum's administration, Astianda Tarkil, spoke of the incomparable nature of the day's events (including music and dancing). The competitions ended in a draw, the overall winner being friendship.
