On January 28th E5 and MYP students visited the exhibition of legendary Spanish painter and sculptor Joan Miró at the Art Pavilion. Prior to the visit the students viewed Joan Miró's designs and MYP2 students - Lilia, Dora and Consuelo made the painting inspired by Miró's joyful celebration of life and colour. At the Art Pavilion we were able to exhibit his paintings, sculptures and tapestries and to witness really unique pieces of art. At first we were under impression how their painting were confusing and weird, but after making a tour through the museum we got a new opinion about Miró's work and life. We noticed that the pattern of a woman and a bird are very popular throughout his work and that he very often incorporated found objects, especially chairs in his sculptures.
During the Advent season our school has turned into a festive place. Our annual Winter Bazaar held on December 19th in the enchanting atmosphere of the festive lights featured a variety of homemade crafts and Christmas themed gifts that have been lovingly hand-made by the students within the School Cooperative sections. In a relaxed, friendly and fun ambiance of the Winter Bazaar we enjoyed tasty treats, enchanting lights, arts, crafts, Christmas music and a warm feeling of the upcoming holiday season.
E5 and MYP representatives - Jadran, Ljubo, Hui Di, Karolina and Dina along with the national programme students organised the Christmas concert in the Soup kitchen of the "Missionaries of Charity - Sisters of Mother Teresa" on December 17th as a part of the Service as Action programme under the guidance of their teachers Ms. Antonia Mimica, Ms. Tatjana Sanko and Ms. Ina Tomic.
Regardless of the religious beliefs, Christmas holiday is the time that could be celebrated by all as this is the time of being merry, cheerful, fulfilled and time when sharing and giving is the common theme.
