To commemorate the Cultural Heritage Week in Slovenia, the MYP students had a cultural day on 6 October. The theme of the week is Precious knowledge and skills; therefore, the 6M pupils visited the Straw museum in Domžale, which represents the traditional Slovenian craft of making hats out of straw. They had a tour of the museum and learned where the craft came from and when, as well as the process of how to make a hat out of wheat. They spent the second part of the day trying to make their own braids out of wheat straw. The visit was interesting and we all learned that making a straw hat is a lot more complicated than we thought at first!
