“We know what we are, but we know not what we may be” – William Shakespeare

In order words, we don’t know what the future holds or how long schools will stay closed. But, we can try to shape each day to be as positive and creative, as well as exciting and rewarding as possible. Our potential is infinite!  Combine this with regular self-care, exercise, a healthy diet and positive thoughts, and you’ll turn every day into a favourable day!

Stay safe!

Best wishes,

Traditional breakfast with a twist!

What do you do with food leftovers? Do you throw them away or do you reuse them in another dish? Our grandmothers knew how to do that!

So, if you have some old bread, eggs and butter left, you can always make šnite or French toast. This is what our students prepared on Friday, November 20th, for their traditional Slovenian breakfast, or better still, what was left of it.

And the French toast recipe 😉 https://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/french_toast/.

1M School life in the past

​On Tuesday, 20th October, before the autumn break, 1m students were supposed to have a cultural day at the School museum. Sadly, because of the Covid-19 restrictions in the country, this prevented them from having the trip to the city center, but they were still able to experience what school was like ‘in the old days.’ A teacher from the past came to visit them, the students had to sit apart from each other, and they had to follow different, stricter rules, and they couldn’t use pencils and notebooks.

Luckily they were able to come back from the past to report that they prefer school nowadays, notebooks and pencils and group work.

Possibility of a warm meal during online schooling

Dear students, respected parents,

The prolonged holidays are ending on Monday, 9th October 2020 and we will continue the school programmes online according to the instructions of your teachers.

Possibility of a warm meal during online schooling: The Ministry of Education sent a memo regarding free warm meals for students in times of harsh epidemiological circumstances. Students eligible for a free warm meal – lunch are the ones who have subsidised school meals and students in foster families.

Students must apply for the meals, by which students/legal guardians agree that their data is used to organise the preparation and manner of delivery of the warm meal. Apply via the online form (unfortunately it is in Slovene) by Monday till 12:00: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSf0h1F_nK_P9gsa8Nf750LFBu3ggywwQxM1E2Y8T3gzoZlX7A/viewform

Students or their legal guardians will be able to pick up the meals at our school or another school, which will be announced later together with the time of the pick-up and other information. In case you have any questions, address them to: prehrana@os-danilekumar.si .

Please adhere to all safety and health measures in the hopes of returning to school as soon as possible.

Let’s be responsible and stay healthy!
