Year 8 Poetry & Prose Recital

The year 8 pupils worked hard during their first unit to inquire into and learn about the esteemed English poet and playwright, William Shakespeare, and his style of writing. For their summative assessment they had to use their acquired knowledge to create their own unique, imaginative and poetic sonnets and soliloquies, on the timeless theme of love. The students shared their love for various things including the seasons, sports, family, cars and food. To conclude the unit appropriately, they invited the school community to a recital, during which they proved to be risk-takers when presenting their work. The recital was followed by a tea party where they had a chance to chat with each other, their parents and teachers. We congratulate them on their creativity and hard work.

The Halloween Party

Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Greetings, my fellow mischief-makers and party enthusiasts, I trust you're all still recovering from the mind-boggling spectacle that was yesterday's Halloween extravaganza at DKIS, orchestrated by our extraordinary PTA. What a day of chaos, laughter, and spine-tingling surprises it was! As your very own Joker, I must express my gratitude to the PTA for the relentless effort, dedication, and masterful planning that went into crafting such a fiendishly fun and unforgettable event. Your commitment to creating an atmosphere of mayhem and joy is nothing short of commendable. But let's not forget the parents and teachers who joined in the carnival of craziness. Your enthusiasm and participation took our Halloween party to new heights. The students had a positively insane time, and it's clear that, once again, we've demonstrated the astonishing power of our community when we come together for a cause. Your support is the Joker up our sleeves, and with it, we can achieve anything we set our minds to. So, to the PTA, parents, and teachers, I say, "You're all a bunch of jokers!" But the best kind, the ones who make life in Gotham DKIS truly extraordinary. Your Joker for the day, Klemen Strmljan

3M Halloween Poem

3M would like to share their scary seasonal poetry with you:[br][br] It's a lovely autumn day, 3M students want to play. Ghosts and zombies are awake, Scary night is on the way.

As the frisbee flies away, Scary trees keep it away, Ms Živa tries to make them stay, But 3M students run away! 3M

On a cloudy Monday, 9th of October, our fearless Students form grades 1M, 2M, 3M and 4M went hiking on St. Primož, near Kamnik, and St. Ana, on which you can ascend from Podpeč lake. There was a cheerful mood during the ascent and although the way was, at times, quite steep all of our pupils made it to the top. On the top we had snack. Some played around spontaneously, while others just enjoyed the nice view. Some of the Students were really true inquirers and found many Knafelc blazes on the trees which helped us to find our way up and down the hill. We were greeted on the way by some goats and cows. It was really fun to test our stamina and endurance, and I believe all of us are looking forward to refilling our batteries again in nature soon.  Mitja Uršič

Reading under the Trees

According to the students, reading under the trees is relaxing and fun, and because Slovenia has been promoting the culture of reading outside since 2004, both the students of the PYP as well as the MYP spent an English lesson reading in the shade of the trees in the school's green playground. The younger pupils reflected on how they liked being outside as well as how they enjoyed reading itself. On the other hand, the older students reflected on how they were principled by reading instead of chatting as well as being prepared and focused on the lesson. Moreover, they also found principled and unprincipled characters in the books they were reading. We encourage the whole school community to take advantage of the last warm and sunny days and enjoy a good book under the trees. Leopoldina P. Hočevar Eve & Tina Frelih

Students need to bring with them: - swimsuits - a towel - shorts - T-shirt - sports shoes for water or an old pair of sports shoes - water bottle - cap for sun Bring some extra sports clothes with you since you will most probably get a bit wet, so you can change there. Students must not bring any money, mobile phones, or other valuable things with them on the sports day. Students will take snack with them in the morning and lunch will be available at school as usual. We will be back at school at 13:15. Kind regards, Mitja Uršič and Jasna Lavrenčič

The New School Year has Arrived 🗓

Dear DKIS Community, I hope you all doing well and are excited about the start of a brand new school year at DKIS. I wanted to say hello and offer my warmest wishes as we embark on this exciting journey together. Regrettably, I couldn't make it to the opening ceremony today because I was busy doing something really special – I was there to personally escort my little one to Grade 1. It's such a big milestone for all of us parents, and I'm sure many of you can relate to the mix of emotions that come with it. As parents, we're a vital part of our children's education, and your involvement and support are absolutely invaluable. The teachers and staff here at DKIS are dedicated to providing a safe and enriching environment for our kids, and I have no doubt that they're in great hands. I'm excited to share that we've been working on upgrading our school website, which is still a work in progress. We want it to be a valuable resource for all parents and students, and we're open to your ideas to make it even better. If you have any suggestions or feedback, please don't hesitate to share them with us. If you ever have questions, suggestions, or just want to chat about how the school year is going, please don't hesitate to reach out to me or the school administration. Your feedback and ideas are always welcome. Here's to a fantastic start to the school year filled with fun, growth, and cherished memories. Best wishes, Klemen Strmljan
