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

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
