The 26th Ljubljana Marathon

This weekend saw the 26th running (pun unintended) of the Ljubljana Marathon, with the Saturday devoted to shorter promotional races for younger athletes. The race distances were 600, 1350 and 1800 metres, for 1st and 2nd, 3rd to 5th, and 6th to 9th grades respectively. The keen runners braved the unpredictable weather conditions and all gave strong and determined performances to delight the assembled crowd, their very proud, happy parents, and the Headmistress too.

1M Cultural Day – Slovenian School Museum

On Tuesday, October 18th, Grade 1 students visited the Slovenian School Museum. They got to see and experience what school was like more than 100 years ago. At first they put on old, but neat, clothes and then attended a lesson led by a very strict teacher. The students were very well behaved and there were no problems, they also received compliments from the teacher. However they were able to try what it was like to kneel on the corn as one of the punishments mentioned. The students enjoyed playing the part of students from the past, but all of them admitted that they prefer their school.

Kindergarten ZOO Visit

​On Wednesday October 12th Kindergarten students visited the Ljubljana Zoo. They had a lot of fun observing lions, giraffes, tigers and even snakes. The most fun was had when the sealions were being fed. They were quite loud and funny. Since there was still some time left before the bus ride back to school, the teachers let the kids play in the playground, which was the best.
