Italian Excursion

The pupils learning one of the Romance languages had the option of spending  Friday, 10 May, in Italy. We visited  Miramare Park, enjoyed the view from Duino castle, learned a little bit about the history of Trieste and attended the Van Gogh exhibition. Do you know how many paintings the famous artist sold during his lifetime? We do now.  The students also compared the key words from our excursion in Italian, Spanish and French and competed in a short quiz. Overall, we had a very enjoyable and informative trip.

5M Cultural Day – The Art of Presenting

On Friday, 10 May, 5M were treated to a morning with the prominent expert in public speaking, Andreja Jernejčič. Upon arrival, at her beautiful premises in Ljubljana, we were welcomed with beverages and appetizers, to prepare us for learning about performing in front of an audience. First, Ms Jernejčič gave a richly informative presentation about public speaking, noting non-verbal communication, preparation, and knowledge as some key aspects. There was also the trick of trying to talk with a pencil in your mouth, which helps you open your mouth fully. The pupils then practiced, using their newly acquired knowledge, and performed, in front of camera, their opening lines for their PYP Exhibition speeches. Ms Jernejčič, then gave us the benefit of her insightful feedback, which was very encouraging for the students, and the teachers too. We would like to thank Ms Jernejčič for a warm, wonderful and informative morning, as well as for the chocolate! Thank you!

On Monday, 22 April, the PYP pupils celebrated Earth Day by visiting the Botanical Gardens in Ljubljana.

The pupils also had gardening workshops, including planting their own seedlings and making a carnivorous pitcher plant from paper, of which they were allowed to take home. The day concluded in the classroom with a discussion on the importance of the conservation of nature and natural resources, followed by a reflection on the day. Let's make Earth Day everyday.

Project Kuhanpato

4 PYP pupils took part in a cooking event which was co-organized by SPAR Slovenia and project Kuhnapato. This year's theme focused on preparing dishes from leftovers. Sometimes we cook too many potatoes or have old bread that nobody wants to eat.  What can we do? Prepare dumplings with butter bread crumbs. We also brought herbs from our school garden to make the sour cream sauce and we prepared tea from the school garden's mint. It was a great event – the students learned new skills and promoted the cooking of all leftovers, so nothing gets wasted. All in all, a very good day.
