On 22 November 2019, in the vicinity of Toulouse, France, an international project Erasmus + Dance Your Ability came to an end. Elementary School Milke Šobar – Nataše Črnomelj and schools from 8 other countries participated in an 11 daylong conference, in which the participants tried out different methods of dance therapy and learned the theory behind of all the different techniques. They also got to know the dishes, the dance culture of the participating country and the organizations they represent. Spending time and socializing with a blind participant and her guide dog gave everyone present an insight into the lives of the blind and the ways they adapt to an unfamiliar environment. During the conference a number of genuine friendships formed that we hope will further be upgraded with new international projects and student exchange.
On Thursday, November 7, 2019, our school organized a national badminton championship for elementary schools for children with special needs for the tenth consecutive year. The competition took place at the sports halls of the High School Črnomelj. It was attended by 26 competitors from nine Slovenian elementary schools. The opening ceremony started with the Slovenian national anthem sung by one of our students, Roberta Hudak. The programme also included a number from the school choir and a vocal group DEVOJKE, composed of our school’s teachers. The head teacher of Milka Šobar Elementary School – Nataše, Matjaž Barič and deputy mayor of the municipality, Dubravko Cengija, welcomed everybody and officially opened the competition.
