January 23rd was National Handwriting Day. Students from grades 2M to 5M marked this day with a short workshop on the importance of handwriting. Two representatives from The Slovenian International Ladies’ Association (SILA) participated in the workshop and shared with us some specifics of learning and using the French alphabet. The students practised the correct posture for writing, learnt a useful trick for holding a pen correctly and created a poster on which they wrote a short greeting in their respective languages. The workshop made us appreciate the role handwriting has in the cultural diversity of our community and in the uniqueness of each individual.
