LATEST GOINGS ON AT THE SCHOOL...
As Part of the school’s continual teacher development, several workshops were held in the weeks running up to the start of the new school year. Among them was a PYP workshop, which while reinforcing the values of the PYP, brought forth some new ideas. There were also workshops for the whole school about formative assessment, differentiation, academic honesty, violence and self harming, giving further insight into these topics and issues.
The 1st September means the 1st day of school. Ms Irena Šteblaj, the Head of the International dept. and Mrs Mojca Mihelič, the Head of the whole school welcomed all returning students and parents back to the school, as well the many new students who are joining the school this year. There was a very warm and vibrant atmosphere in the auditorium, which highlighted the mood of optimism and enthusiasm for the coming school year.
