8m students and students from 9th Grade of the Slovenian department who had received the Slovenian Reading Badge Award every school year and have been at our school since the Primary Years, achieved the Slovenian Gold Reading Badge Award. As a special reward, they went on a trip on 10th May 2018 together with students from other schools from the Ljubljana Bežigrad Region.

First, we visited the Lipica Stud Farm, where they saw the world famous Lipizzaner horses and found out about the history of the Farm and breeding from 16th century until the present day. After, we crossed the border into Italy and visited the beautiful Miramare Castle. We also had a walk in the park by the castle. Finally, we arrived at the seaside town of Grado, known as Sunny Island. Grado used to be a fishing village, but nowadays is better known as a tourist destination, with one of the most beautiful beaches in the Adriatic. We had a look at the Basilica di Sant’ Eufemia, which originates from as early as the 5th century A.D.

We took advantage of the beautiful sunny day and during our free time had a walk in the old town and on the beach, and tasted the delicious ice-cream. All in all, it was a beautiful trip on a beautiful day.
