World Book Day

World Book Day is celebrated around the world each year on 23 April. It has been organised by UNESCO to promote reading, publishing, and copyright since 1995. The MYP students dedicated an English lesson to the day during which they presented their favourite books and tried to encourage their classmates and teachers to read the books as well. The 8I students also read poems from around the world and created one pagers in which they reflected on what they read. Everyone learned something new and we hope that the entire school community will spend part of the spring break reading a good book.

World Scholar’s Cup

Five Danila Kumar International School students participated in the regional round of the World Scholar’s Cup competition, in Koper, during the weekend. The students had to show their knowledge on different topics and subjects connected to the main theme of the competition, this year being Reconstructing the Past. They had to display their excellent debating and writing skills, but the most important part of the competition was team-work and collaboration. The pupils achieved the following results: Maks, 6M, gained second place individually in the Scholar’s Challenge and Lalitha, 7M, gained seventh place individually in Collaborative Writing. Maks and Sonja, 7M, won a silver medal for debating and Eva, Lalitha and Eden, 7M won the gold medal in debating. The students had fun and we are very proud of them.

Alpe Adria Soccer Tournament

Some of our students participated in the Alpe Adria soccer tournament in Udine, Italy. We had one girls team and two boys teams. The matches were very competitive, but played following the principles of sportsmanship. Along with the photos below, you can also click here for some more action from the tournament.
