On November 26th we went on a one-day trip to Velden in Austria. At first this small town enchanted us with its magic atmosphere. First we visited the Christmas Tree Exhibition and voted for the best decorated tree. After the exhibitions we went on the ride on a Ferris wheel near the lake. It is approximately 15-20 meters high and we got a panoramic view of the Lake Worthersee and the whole Velden.
On October 24th MYP2 girls - Ema, Ana, Noora, Fiona, Ea, Mara and Yuxuan visited the Children's Hospital Klaiceva. Within the project Make Them Smile and thanks to generous donations of students and their parents at the International Community Day we successfully raised money for the children in Klaiceva hospital.
On November 19th we visited the Croatian National Theatre. We had a special backstage tour which allowed us to peek behind the scene of the show. We got an amazing insight into the places that are usually closed to public: dressing rooms and underground tunnels. We even had a chance to watch opera and ballet performance rehearsals.
It was a dark, cold night. Rain was dripping from the bare branches and a dim light was peeking through the thick fog. The shadow of a large building was looming through the darkness. Children were walking towards the light... Yeah, it sounds like the start of a spooky novel or horror movie, but it was far from that - it was just really bad weather on the night when our school had another, now already traditional Night at the library on November 11th.
On November 10th we went to Interliber accompanied by our librarian Ms. Ina Tomic. Interliber is the biggest Croatian fair for teaching supplies and books. It is held every year in mid-November. Representatives from book publishing and multimedia companies come to Interliber to present all of their products. I enjoyed visiting Interliber a lot and will definitely continue visiting. It was a very fun experience because I had a chance to peek at a lot of different books and even buy some.
