On Tuesday, 8 June, the MYP students had a sunny, splashy and wonderful sports day at the Kayak and Canoe Club Ljubljana. They rotated between three activities: kayaking, canoeing, and basketball. There was cooperation, risk-taking, being balanced and good communicators, especially in the cooperative rowing of the long canoe. The day couldn’t have been more beautiful. Everyone was in a good mood and enjoyed the refreshing coolness of the Ljubljanica river. A day well spent.
On Monday, 7 June 2021, MYP students took part in a collapsed day in collaboration with our Friends from Matija Gubec International School in Zagreb. Under normal circumstances, we would meet with the students from their school in person; however, due to current restrictions, our students spent the day discovering the area of Samobor and Žumberak, prepared a simplified version of one of the traditional desserts of that region – the Samobor Kremšnita, participated in various sports games, and solved riddles in the scavenger hunt.
We all hope that next year we will finally be able to meet with the students from Croatia in person!

On Thursday, 3 June, the MYP students went on a hike to St Primož, a hill above the city of Kamnik. We took the bus from school to the foot of the mountain and started our ascend from Strahovica, where a wide macadam road led us towards St Primož. The climb was slightly challenging for some, and it took us approximately 1½ hours to reach the top of the hill. There we found the old church of St Primus and Felician, built in the 12th century and rebuilt to its present appearance in the 15th and 16th centuries. The church is decorated with well-preserved medieval murals. We rested, had our snack enjoying the sunny day and marvellous view.
