The article presents research, conducted by the author in Riga Lithuanian Secondary School in March, 2014. The study included a total of 60 respondents, 43% male and 57% female, respectively. They were interviewed using a semi-structured questionnaire developed by the author. Participant observation method was used. Riga Lithuanian Secondary School not only provides education but also places great emphasis on fostering the Lithuanian language and national traditions. The study revealed that celebrations help build a community, experience a sense of solidarity and discover new meanings of communality. Every school community has symbols embodying their uniqueness in regard to communities of other schools. The most common symbols are the school coat of arms, school anthem and flags which symbolise belonging to a particular school community. The school community has numerous invented traditions such as the celebration of one hundred days before the examinations or the 'Žetonu vakars.' The festivity merges Lithuanian and Latvian school celebration traditions Other dates, important not only to members of Riga Lithuanian Secondary School but also to the Lithuanian community in Riga, include state holidays such as the Declaration of Lithuanian Independence Day on February 16, and the Re-establishment of the State of Lithuania Day on March 11. The school maintains close cooperation with Lithuanians residing in Latvia and Lithuania and strives to promote culture and traditions. It has been observed that not only Lithuanians and Latvians but also students of other ethnicities choose to study in Riga Lithuanian Secondary School. The choice is determined by high school ratings and good study conditions.[...]
