Email and texting is fine, but there is something so beautiful and personal about a letter that someone has taken the time to write by hand. Handwritten letters from loved ones are saved, re-read, and carried about as they remind us of great moments in life. You are invited to write a lovely letter and bring it sealed in an envelope to the library from 5th to 11th February.
Parents Teaching About Their Countries On January 28th Mr. Marco Serazzi gave us the lecture about Italy, the birthplace of Western culture. Through the wonderful presentation we travelled along the timeline of Italian history, a long-lasting continuity from antiquity to the present. We have learnt that Italians have made an important contribution to mankind: alphabet and Latin language, law principles, building technologies, constructions of theatres, amphitheatres, bridges, roads and aqueducts, literary works and many art masterpieces derive from the Roman heritage.
On January 26th the students and teachers from Danila Kumar International School from Ljubljana visited our school. This visit of the IB MYP students from Ljubljana was a great opportunity for our students to spend some quality time together with them, to share experiences, make friends and engage in the humanitarian action "Let's Keep Them Warm". Besides it was a perfect timing for the visit as we were celebrating the School Day by organising the workshops that our guest students could have joined.
Indonesia and Nigeria In the middle of freezing January with a view over remaining piles of snow, students of the sixth grade were warmed up and transferred to the tropical paradise by Fiona (MYP1) who represented her home country - Indonesia. The following week, still during the chilly never ending January, another tropical stroke for the six graders. Maya from E5 was in action sharing her broad African experiences and teaching about Nigeria where she spent as many as three years.
From 17th until 22nd January we went for a six-day ski trip to Nassfeld in Austria. We all gathered in front of school on Sunday morning and our bus soon began to move towards our destination. When we finally arrived to Nassfeld we were pleasantly surprised by the hotel which had lovely rooms and was placed in a beautiful location with great ski slopes. During the next five days we went to the ski slopes where we were skiing and enjoying the snowy mountain landscape with blue sky sunshine.
