LATEST GOINGS ON AT THE SCHOOL...
The Ministry of Education, Science and Sport informed us that as from Monday or until further notice, the MYP students will start with online learning. As we anticipated, this was bound to happen and our MYP community (students included) are completely ready for the challenge ahead of us. The MYP teachers will upload their lessons to MS Teams on a daily basis. They will also have up to three live lessons per day following these patterns:
- odd weeks lessons 1, 3 and 5;
- even weeks lessons 2, 4 and 6.
Students should be responsible and do their work regularly. The online learning that the students will do at home will be recognised in the same way as their presence and learning in school.
Those who do not finish the assignments will have to do extra lessons when regular lessons recommence. We will keep you informed about all the latest developments.
We, the MYP students had our first plenary lesson of this school year, on the 2nd September 2020, during which we discussed the new school guidelines in our classes. Some of the guidelines we discussed were safety distance (1.5m), masks in hallways and walking on the right. During our second plenary lesson, we continued with the new guidelines and discussed online learning. We talked about using Microsoft Teams and covered the dos and don’ts of online learning. Each class then made either a poster or a video about the topic. The following week, we continued by finishing what we had already started by looking at the posters and videos from other classes. We continued by discussing school before and after the Covid-19 situation. The classes split into groups to make posters comparing school routines before and after Covid-19. The next plenary session came and we participated in the European mobility week by dancing in our classes. We first watched two videos about European mobility week and the importance of exercise and keeping the air clean. After that, we watched a video made by Kazina dance school and then followed along and danced to the choreography.

During the week of Slovenian Traditional Culture, the MYP students visited the Land of Hayracks in Šentrupert. Besides the guided tour, they participated in four different workshops and also received a snack. We are all thankful to the staff of the Land of Hayracks for their cooperation during this difficult time.
It has been brought to my knowledge that we have a reported case of Covid-19 infection in our school kitchen. Therefore, I would like to inform you that the kitchen will be closed from tomorrow on until further notice. Since we have been taking all the safety measures required the students were not affected.
We will still provide snack during the main break for the students. Instead of lunch, the students will receive an additional, more nutritious warm snack. The students will take lunch at 12:00 and eat it in their classrooms.
Breakfast and afternoon snack is cancelled until further notice.
Thank you for your understanding.
