Afterwards pupils and their teachers together with the employees from Communication Department went to the cinema Parex plaza to watch the premiere of the film Bērnības garša (A Taste of Childhood) of the series Lai dzīvo bērni (Let the children live). This film is the result of several years lasting cooperation project, in which participate Latvijas dzelzceļš, Latvijas gāze, Latvenergo and Road Traffic Safety Directorate.
