The year 8 pupils worked hard during their first unit to inquire into and learn about the esteemed English poet and playwright, William Shakespeare, and his style of writing. For their summative assessment they had to use their acquired knowledge to create their own unique, imaginative and poetic sonnets and soliloquies, on the timeless theme of love. The students shared their love for various things including the seasons, sports, family, cars and food. To conclude the unit appropriately, they invited the school community to a recital, during which they proved to be risk-takers when presenting their work. The recital was followed by a tea party where they had a chance to chat with each other, their parents and teachers. We congratulate them on their creativity and hard work.

On Friday, 1 December, our Sewing Circle made their way to Ljubljana's city centre to decorate some Christmas trees with their hand-sewn ornaments. The children decorated two of the many trees dispersed around town, which are situated alongside the statue of France Prešeren. After hanging their ornaments on the trees, they visited the Town Hall and were offered a sweet treat. All the children felt very proud, and had a wonderful time.

Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Greetings, my fellow mischief-makers and party enthusiasts,
I trust you're all still recovering from the mind-boggling spectacle that was yesterday's Halloween extravaganza at DKIS, orchestrated by our extraordinary PTA. What a day of chaos, laughter, and spine-tingling surprises it was!
As your very own Joker, I must express my gratitude to the PTA for the relentless effort, dedication, and masterful planning that went into crafting such a fiendishly fun and unforgettable event. Your commitment to creating an atmosphere of mayhem and joy is nothing short of commendable.
But let's not forget the parents and teachers who joined in the carnival of craziness. Your enthusiasm and participation took our Halloween party to new heights.
The students had a positively insane time, and it's clear that, once again, we've demonstrated the astonishing power of our community when we come together for a cause. Your support is the Joker up our sleeves, and with it, we can achieve anything we set our minds to.
So, to the PTA, parents, and teachers, I say, "You're all a bunch of jokers!" But the best kind, the ones who make life in Gotham DKIS truly extraordinary.
Your Joker for the day,

3M would like to share their scary seasonal poetry with you:[br][br]
It's a lovely autumn day,
3M students want to play.
Ghosts and zombies are awake,
Scary night is on the way.
Witches flying in the air,
Spiders crawling everywhere.
Pumpkinheads are on the way,
Ghosts and zombies say, "we'll stay!"
As the frisbee flies away,
Scary trees keep it away,
Ms Živa tries to make them stay,
But 3M students run away!
