The extracurricular group had the opportunity to visit the National Museum of Slovenia, which was organised by their teacher Ms Tadeja Galonja. Here is an article about their experience, written by one of the participants – Celestė Liepa Videtič (Click here to view)
On Thursday, 3 June, the MYP students went on a hike to St Primož, a hill above the city of Kamnik. We took the bus from school to the foot of the mountain and started our ascend from Strahovica, where a wide macadam road led us towards St Primož. The climb was slightly challenging for some, and it took us approximately 1½ hours to reach the top of the hill. There we found the old church of St Primus and Felician, built in the 12th century and rebuilt to its present appearance in the 15th and 16th centuries. The church is decorated with well-preserved medieval murals. We rested, had our snack enjoying the sunny day and marvellous view.
On Wednesday, 2 June, the Kindergarten students took a trip to Rožnik. The weather was perfect, and the students were in a good mood.
We all enjoyed hiking and observing nature. We saw many different animals, even deers, squirrels and a lizard. When we reached the top, we had a lovely snack – we even managed to fill in a scavenger hunt worksheet and exercise in the small playground. We were extremely fast going back, running almost all the way downhill. When we came back to school we were hungry, a little bit tired and happy.
We cordially invite all community members to the 2021 Grade 5 Primary Years Program (PYP) Exhibition. The Exhibition represents a significant event in the life of a Grade 5 student, bringing together the essential elements of the PYP and sharing them with the whole school community. As a culminating experience, it is an opportunity for students to exhibit the attributes of the International Baccalaureate (IB) learner profile they have been developing throughout their engagement with the PYP.
Students focused on the central idea, “My weaknesses become my strengths”. They are engaged in an independent, transdisciplinary inquiry process involving identifying, investigating and offering solutions to real-life problems; taking action is a significant part of this process.
This event will be held at the Danila Kumar International School on 7 June 2021, at 8.40 am in the school’s large, open central hallway at the main entrance reception.
We look forward to seeing all community members at this event to support our Grade 5 students.
