LATEST GOINGS ON AT THE SCHOOL...
On Tuesday, 20 September, 6 and 7M students had a collapsed day during which they started working on their long term Service as Action. They worked well on proposals, researched their ideas, and prepared basic plans of how they would carry out their activities. The 6M students focused on collaborating with the Bežigrad Old People’s Home, while 7M students’ focus was on improving the school environment and helping out the school community.
We are inviting all the parents or other family members to participate in our Reading Badge project for parents and employees at Danila Kumar School. The reading badge will run throughout the school year and conclude on 2 April 2023. Everyone can participate by reading 5 books, writing your opinion about them in the attached form, and sending it to the school library e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). The books can be anything you like, adult fiction, youth fiction, as well as professional fiction, in any language. With your permission, we will publish book reviews in a special collection published on the school’s website, where you can see recommendations for your next reading. By joining this project, you will be a wonderful example to your children. Through youth literature, you will be able to peek into their world, talk about what you have read, and share your opinions with them.
The teachers’ Association Naša Zemlja organizes a literary, art and photography competition entitled “Our Homeland – My Security”. The competition is extremely important, as it encourages young people to know and think about the importance of safety in our lives. The students should consider various forms of security for all living beings – personal safety, safety of our homelands, online safety, safety of animals, plants. Let your imagination run wild and consider the metaphorical meaning as well as security today, in the future, in different periods of an individual’s life, in different social circumstances, in different regions of our homelands. You can express yourself through free writing, poems, essays, lines, anecdotes, comics, plays etc. Please contact me if you are interested in participating.
I will be collecting your work until 17 April, 2023.

As part of the National Month of Shared Reading campaign, students of the PYP spent a lesson outside reading under the treetops. Reading in the fresh air has a positive effect on the development and formation of a healthy lifestyle and skills, quality leisure time, the formation of a creative personality and a positive attitude towards reading and the students enjoyed it a lot. Afterwards, they reflected on their learner profiles and discovered they were balanced, inquirers, thinkers, caring, communicators, principled, knowledgeable and risk-takers. We encourage both the parents and the students to spend the remaining sunny days enjoying a good book in nature.
