Christmas is coming, so post your Christmas letters to Santa Claus by Friday 16th of December, in the Entrance Hall, because that’s when Santa’s helper will come and collect them.
From the 8-9th December Danila Kumar International School in Ljubljana hosted a Language Acquisition cluster workshop for teachers, which was led by IB workshop leader Eleni Vasileiou. The teachers whowere took part in the workshop came from 5 different countries: Slovenia, Croatia, Austria, Czech Republic and Slovakia. The programme focused on constructivist and concept based learning, and involved many activities where teachers could deepen their understanding and gather information about IB philosophy and assessment and planning in the language acquisition framework. The workshop proved to be an informative, stimulating, and enriching experience for all the teachers, as it emphasised a life-long learning approach to teaching and learning languages.
On Tuesday, December 6th, grade 5 students had a special guest during their regular UOI lesson. We hosted a volunteer from Slovenia, who was working in an Animal Rescue Centre in Costa Rica. He presented the purpose of the centre, different animals and their stories, pictures and videos. The students were very excited, but also very empathetic and sad about the life stories of some of the animals.
As the holidays are nearly upon us, our Danila Kumar Joint School Choir will perform in front of Ljubljana City Hall (address: Mestni trg 1, 1000 Ljubljana) on Wednesday, 14th of December, at 18.00. They will sing some merry holiday songs.
All members of our school community are kindly invited to attend the performance.
