PYP Cultural Day – The Opera

On Friday, 27 January 2023, the PYP students came to school all dressed up and ready for the opera! They started the cultural day with activities through which they learned how an opera is realised, from the musical work to a performance, getting to know the characters of the story and what the message is, and making posters that convince people to go see the opera. Finally, we took the short journey by bus to Cankarjev dom, where the students showed their concert etiquette while enjoying the children’s opera Squirrel of a Special Kind by the young Slovenian composer Iztok Kocen, based on a story by a the renowned Slovenian author Svetlana Makarovič. Even if we are not good at something, we have to try everything to find the things we are good at. And while doing so, never forget to show kindness to those who might not have the same skills as we do.

6M Field Trip – Day 5

We reached the last day, and the time flew by so fast in the sun and on the snow. While skiing skills were formed and improved, social bonds were forged and strengthened proving sport is a great way to form new friendships. Mission accomplished.

6M Field Trip – Day 4 & 5

On the fourth day we were again skiing through the day, until our feet couldn’t bare it any longer. It was a bit cloudy and windy here, yet the winter snow fairy still held on here in KG. All the students have now learned how to use the ski lifts and go down the slopes independently. Congratulations to all! In the evening we soothed our feet by line dancing at the disco!!! What a party. 🙂 
 
See you today in the afternoon, around 15.30 – 16.00!
