As the quantity of e-waste is growing rapidly, it is important to recycle it or reuse it properly. From 1st to 21st October we will be collecting Small Electrical Appliances in the lobby of the school. We will try to collect as many appliances as possible to win a prize and host a concert with Challe Salle in our school! To win a prize, there are two conditions:

  • Collect as many electrical appliances (in kg) as possible (functional and non-functional)
  • Create a strong (media) campaign in school and in your community (evidence!)

We are collecting kitchen appliances, vacuum cleaners, sewing machines, microwaves, radios, electric tools, mobile phones, calculators, laptops, TV monitors, videorecorders, LCD screens …
Bring it to reception (if needed in a cardboard box or bag) and mark with a note if it still functions.
The functioning appliances will be checked by designated companies and organisations and donated to those in need.

We will need your help (parents and students) with the collecting and the campaign!
7th and 8th grade students are invited to participate in the project and acquire Short-Term Service as Action recognition.
The PYP and MYP classes that bring the highest number of appliances will be awarded! (2 awards)

MYP Cultural Days – Idrija Lace

Our school celebrated the Week of National and European cultural heritage with a visit to Idrija City Museum.
The MYP students visited the Museum on Wednesday 28th September. They participated in three different workshops and were guided through the museum. They got to know many things about Idrija’s lace and its history.
The following day, Thursday 29th September. the students prepared some ‘Contemporary products’ and interpretations of Idirja’s lace. Some students made skirts, ties and dresses and, therefore, learned how to design simple cuts. 
Others worked in the design classroom and made lace lanterns, others practiced patience and preciseness and drew lace patterns on paper as a table cloth. 
We believe  they had two interesting and productive days!

6 & 7M Cultural Day – Service as Action

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.

Literary Competition 

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.
