Our school acquired its name from the young Slovenian resistance member Danila Kumar, who lived in our school’s neighbourhood and was brutally killed in the Second World War. She was born on 13 October and that is why this day is the Day of Our School.
We commemorated this event, with a performance “The Fearless Researcher Marie Curie and Radioactivity” (Neustrašljiva raziskovalka Marie Curie in radioaktivnost), on Tuesday, 16 October.
The performance gave the audience insight about the scientist’s life and achievements as well as being very entertaining.

Danila Kumar with the poet Karel Destovnik Kajuh, photo taken in 1943, both were killed in 1944.
