The 8M & 8I students are currently investigating a country located in central Asia, Afghanistan, as it will be the setting of the new novel we will now read in unit 2 in Language and Literature. For this reason, they attended a presentation on Afghanistan led by one of our parents, Mr. Robič, who has recently visited this country. During the presentation he shared first-hand experience on the culture, food, transport, everyday life and meeting the Taliban. Afterwards we had a Q&A session in which our pupils posed many questions, showing their interest in this mysterious country. His experiences were surprising since Afghanistan is not a country most of us know well or would ever visit. What we learnt is that the Afghan people are welcoming, communicative and above all positive, despite the struggles they face. It was truly an eye-opening experience for everyone.
