On the occasion of the World Book Day, which is held every year on April 22nd, our librarians Irena and Ina organized a series of events within the program called "From Illustrations to comics, picture books and books". It was a very lively day in our library. We drew comics and illustrations for picture books, received a visit from the children's writer Maja Brajko Livakovic and gave out the awards for the best readers. E5 students taught E2 students how to use the Storybird.
On April 21st we organised our fifth Science fair. Our students enthusiastically showed us their project experiments they had been working on, guided by the Science teachers, Ms. Svjetlana Keser and Ms. Lana Brkic and the Permaculture teacher Mr. Ratko Johan. We could see a roller coaster, laser show, sound waves in fire, vacuum chamber, robots and many other scientific attractions - indoors and outdoors.
On April 15th we visited the Open Day at the Faculty of Science. E5 and MYP1 students participated in an interactive workshop "Scientific magic" and realised how science could be fun and exciting. Through scientific experiment demonstrations and laboratory tours MYP2 and MYP3 students could hear a laser harp, see the Rubens tube and touch a liquid nitrogen.
On March 19th our students along with their parents and teachers jointly took part in the Medvednica Nature Park Reforestation Action organised on the occasion of the tenth, jubilee Earth Hour 2016. After morning gathering at the valley station of the Sljeme cable car and listening to the guidelines we started to plant the seedlings of oak and fruit trees in the forests of the Bliznec zone that was damaged last year by eight storms and an ice break.
It is a tradition in our school to celebrate the World Storytelling Day. This year it greatly addressed our annual project as we have travelled around the world through stories. The most beautiful childhood stories were presented to E2, E3, E5 and MYP1 students and 6th graders of the national programme by our storytellers: Fiona, Jadran, Mara, Maya, Noora, Pinar and Yuxuan. We visited Indonesia, Dubai, Canada, Ghana, Estonia, Turkey and China.
