5M Field Trip, Kavka – Day Four

Day four started, as day three, with another morning dedicated to the PYP Exhibition, the students working toward their presentations, which will take place on 9 June. The final afternoon’s activity saw the pupils attempt to ascend the heights of the CŠOD Kavka’s climbing wall, with the help and guidance of the experienced instructor, Mr Zoran. Then, the curtains were drawn on the closing evening with the story board picture cards the pupils prepared on Tuesday, presented through the medium of the traditional form of Japanese theatre, kamishibai. 

6M Service Project – Visit to the Home for the Elderly

The 6M students paid a visit to the Home for the Elderly in Bežigrad for the last time this year. The students showed that they were caring for they were helping the elderly weed their garden and making their environment even more pleasant. Both the students and the residents had fun and enjoyed each other’s company.

5M Field Trip, Kavka – Day Three

A cloudy horizon greeted 5M today as they prepared for a full morning’s work on the PYP Exhibition with a quick warm up and some games on the playground. The pupils worked hard and made progress on their lines of inquiry, making the most of their classroom time. After lunch, the sun paid a visit as the students embarked on a stroll through the forest. The way was lined with many trees, plants and flowers, of which our guide, Ms Monika, shared some of their qualities. One in particular was the Spotted Dead-Nettle, without a sting, and having little flowers containing nectar, which the pupils lapped up. The stroll culminated in reaching a clearing in the woodland offering spectacular views of the Soča valley, which as one student, referring to the book by J.R. R. Tolkien, commented, “It looks like Hobbit land!” With a brief afternoon session of the PYP Exhibition, and some games in the evening, the day concluded quite contentedly.

5M Field Trip, Kavka – Day Two

Day two in Kavka unleashed a busy itinerary for the 5M students. To begin with they followed the Sentiero Della Pace or Pot Miru (Walk of Peace), straddling the Italy-Slovenia border to the First World War I Outdoor Museum in Kolovrat, site of the dangerous Isonzo Front, where a network of bunkers, caves and trenches sheltered many brave fighters. Along the way they passed a monument dedicated to Zanuso Giuseppe, an Italian soldier, who had a shelter for those caught in storms named after him. After a well earned lunch they once again immersed themselves in the PYP Exhibition followed by a trek to the local Kavka cave, learning from our guide about how the Karst region was formed. Then, after dinner, to round off the day, the pupils were introduced to Kamishibai, a traditional form of Japanese street theatre in the form of picture card storytelling.
