2M Sports Day

Today, our grade 2 students were inquiring through different activities about their heart and components of health. They measured their heart beats and found out how the heart beat changes in different activities and which exercises can help to improve the various components of health (cardio, muscle strength, muscle endurance and flexibility).

MYP Cultural Day – Cultural Fair

On Friday 24 March, the students of the MYP participated in various activities prepared by our Language acquisition department. All of the activities were, of course, connected to the languages taught at our school – Slovenian, German, French and Spanish. Students were creating famous world monuments – The Leaning Tower of Pisa, The Colosseum, The Mayan pyramids, to name but a few. They also created games and activities, which they will be able to use in lessons to practice these languages. They prepared delicious food from the countries – fajitas, quiche… During the final lesson, the students had a tour of the cultural fair in which they got to admire and taste what they had created during the day, while some students also presented their work in different languages. All in all, it was a productive and enjoyable day!

FIRST LEGO League is the most accessible, guided global robotics competition, helping students and teachers to build a better future together. The teams are competing in four categories: the robot game, the technical interview, the project and core values. Our team, comprised from national (Nejc Tušek, and Miha Aleksander Folkson) and international (Maria Madeleine Svetlana Magnus, Eden Kismet Bahri and Eva Kastelic) department students, were successful at demonstrating all four components, on which they have been working hard for the past six months. As a result, they came in 16th position in the Adria region and received a SILVER AWARD.

Mother’s Day 

Mother’s Day is a day set aside to express love, respect and thanks to mothers. The day is observed by giving gifts, visiting, or taking mothers out for dinner and celebrations. Mother’s Day around the world falls on different dates at various times of the year (usually in March or May). In Slovenia it is celebrated on 25 March. Many cultures have diverse ways to celebrate it. The moral of this day is that husbands and children must respect their wives and mothers in the family. President Woodrow Wilson announced the first Mother’s Day in the USA on 9 May 1914. He asked Americans to give a public “thank you” to their mothers and all mothers on that day. What will you do on Mother’s Day?

International Women’s Day

To commemorate International Women’s Day, the year 8 students had a lesson dedicated to the holiday. They created acrostic poems about women they admire, researched women leaders from around the world, imagined a day in the life of a girl from another place or time, amongst other things. International Women’s Day reminds us to be open-minded and caring, to live in a world in which everyone is equal.

6M – Visit to the Home for the Elderly

Some 6M students visited the Home for the Elderly in Bežigrad once more. The students again showed that they were excellent communicators, caring and real risk-takers. They prepared the delicious Kaiserschmarrn together with the residents of the home, which they also got to enjoy later on. Both the students and the hosts had fun and enjoyed each other’s company.

3M Science Day – Bridges must Cross & Carry

On 7 March, the 3M students had a science day in which they investigated the purpose and strength of the different types of structures and materials of bridges. In groups, through discussion and trial and error they executed and constructed their own bridges and evaluated their designs, materials used, and building techniques employed by carrying out various experiments to test the worthiness, endurance and fortitude of their work. 

Kindergarten Cultural Day – Ljubljana Puppet Theatre

Our Kindergarten students visited the Ljubljana puppet theatre on Friday 3 March.
The travelling to and from the theatre was as interesting as the show itself. Experiences like taking a public bus, walking through the city centre and observing a truck with a crane cage, along with strolling through Ljubljana market and seeing an ice skating rink were all part of the trip.
We know the children enjoyed themselves during the puppet show as well, as we could hear a lot of laughing and positive comments during the performance.

MYP Sports Day – Krvavec

As is the case every year, the time had come again for the annual MYP Winter Sports Day, this year being split between Krvavec, for the skiers and snowboarders, and Jezersko, for those who decided to try other seasonal activities. The Krvavec crew ascended the freshly snow swept mountain aboard the gondola to find a blanket of moderate fog. The visibility remained fair though, as the students were eager to immerse themselves in the fresh snowfall and showcase their piste prowess. Many ascents were made on the chair lifts, the students keen to make the most of the time they had deftly descending the spacious well-groomed Krvavec runs, with some also flexing their freestyle frolics in the snowpark.

MYP Sports Day – Jezersko

MYP students enjoyed the fresh snow today at their winter sports day. Half of the students went skiing at Krvavec while the other half went to Jezersko. The team there prepared three stations: cross-country skiing, sledding and snowshoeing and the students, being balanced, tested their skills on all three. And on top of everything, they had an impromptu snowball fight on their way back to the bus. Everyone was exercising and having a lot of fun doing it.

3, 4 & 5M Science Day – Slovenian Beekeepers’ Association

On 28 February, the students from 3, 4 and 5M entered the world of bees, upon traveling to Brdo, in the Lukovica area, where the Slovenian Beekeepers’ Association is situated. The multi tiered itinerary consisted of, firstly, a presentation about how bees produce honey, which produced a very enthusiastic and lively question and answer session. Then the students donned beekeeping hats and visited the association’s apiarys, being warned to be quiet, as during the winter months the bees sleep. On the menu next was pollen tasting, along with a rich selection of five different types of honey. Block stamp making completed the day’s activities, the pupils designing their own mementos to remind them of their time learning about bees and honey.

PYP Winter Sports Day

The 23 February saw the annual Winter PYP Sports Day return. Bohinj and Pokljuka were the destinations this year as the Kindergarten, 1, 2 and 3M headed to the latter, while 4 and 5M were treated with the former. The older students alternated between some classic winter sledging fun, and donning the thinner types of skis for some cross country skiing action. Meanwhile, over in Pokljuka, the younger pupils were also sledging, and trying some other winter pursuits: snowshoeing and mono skiing. 

Davinci’s Bridge

At design in 6m we started a new unit about constructions and students were building “Davinci’s Bridge”. These are some of their masterpieces.

​On Tuesday (Pustni torek) instead of children, the school was full of animals, princesses, robots, and strange creatures from various games, movies, and TV shows.

There were so many interesting costumes, so many creative masks, so many happy faces, …
Therefore, we decided to invite the younger half of the school to the dome, where we threw a dance party.
We had a lot of fun dancing and singing and, hopefully, we managed to scare this year’s winter away.

Last Saturday, February 18th, some of our students attended the Dragon Carnival (Zmajev karneval) in Ljubljana city centre. They presented our school adorning the group mask of Snow White and the dwarfs.

Congratulations to all of the students for their attendance and a lovely performance at the Carnival!

Talent Show

As part of his Service as Action project, one of our students, Andras from 7M, successfully organised a talent show. Students from both departments were able to apply and join the auditions. The final event took place on 25 January, where a number of students showed off their talents, which included singing, playing instruments, karate, breakdancing and drama. The audience was thrilled and supportive and everyone involved had a lot of fun. Congratulations to all the winners and participants and kudos to the organiser and his mentor for preparing such an enjoyable event.

Visit to the Home for the Elderly

The 6M students took a visit to the Home for the Elderly in Bežigrad once more. The students again showed that they were excellent communicators, coming prepared with various board games, explaining the instructions and competing in the games with the residents. Both the students and the residents had fun and enjoyed each other’s company.
