The Youth Theater Festival "The Great Russian Word in Korea" was held on November 25, 2017. The first event of this kind was organized by AppleTreeSchool with the support of Rossotrudnichestvo and the Coordinating Council of Organizations of Russian Compatriots (KSORS) in the Republic of Korea.

Pupils of the Russian schools "New Way" and "Russian House" (Seoul), "New Way" (Incheon), "Noane" (Ansan), "AppleTreeSchool" (Hwaseong), as well as theater studios of Korea took part in the festival.

Literary and artistic works, which were presented in the varied program of the festival, according to the plan of the organizers, help children to perceive the Russian language more emotionally and vividly. Through vivid artistic images, pupils of schools better assimilate the cultural values of Russia, and the classics become one of the important tools for the spiritual and moral development of the younger generation.

“AppleTreeSchool has been striving to preserve and promote the Russian language in the Republic of Korea since its first day of operation. Using a variety of forms of work, the school arouses a keen interest in Russia, its culture, science and education among the local population. The activity of the school is aimed at consolidating the forces of all those who are interested in spreading the Russian language outside of Russia. And interest in its study, as well as in Russian culture as a whole, remains huge, ”Natalia Gulina, director of the AppleTree educational complex, told the VKS portal. 

And, according to her, the goal of youth theater festivals is to maintain interest in Russian literature and Russian theater. In the future, the organizers want to see other educational institutions at these meetings, as well as activists from the Russian-speaking diaspora.

A member of the Coordinating Council of Organizations of Russian Compatriots in South Korea, the Russian school AppleTreeSchool takes an active part in the public life of the Russian-speaking diaspora in Korea. School students are involved in theatrical performances, student forums and festivals, festive concerts, including those dedicated to Victory Day. In 2016, AppleTreeSchool held the first Total Dictation in the republic.
