On Wednesday, May 15th, 2019, our school was visited by Project RISE partners from Italy. After a welcome by the school´s representatives, they took a short tour of the school, tried out a mobile interactive communicator – MIKI and Play attention training system. After that our students prepared a short but wonderful cultural programme. Socializing with our partners continued in the afternoon at RIC Novo mesto, where in groups, we all evaluated the work in the project. Then we all watched a play Dobra vila (The Good Fairy) which was followed by the awarding of the best stories to students who took part in the project and wrote on the fight against discrimination. The prize for the most beautiful story was earned by our student Žana Makovec for the drawing showing the prevention of racial discrimination and encourages friendship. We thank all partners in the RISE project and we hope that we will continue to participate successfully in the future.
On Tuesday, April 23rd 2019, some pupils of the Milka Šobar-Nataše Elementary School gathered at 8.00 to take a bus to Terme Čatež. There they were warmly received by the staff, which accompanied them to their rooms and to a great lunch. The gloomy weather and rain did not stop the children during the first afternoon ride on the slides. How wonderful!
Besides swimming, on the last day they also went to the long-awaited shopping area where they could buy souvenirs. Shopping has made them very tired, so it was necessary to refresh with delicious ice cream. The students and teachers completed their stay at Terme Čatež with a party on the last evening.
Full of beautiful impressions and memories they returned to Bela krajina.
Students of Milke Šobar Elementary School have attended a week-long international project Ready to help, together with their teachers. The project took place in Poronin Poland, from 11th till 18th April 2019. In various workshops, we learned many new ways to help people in case of an accident, first aid and at the same time, the children made friends with their peers from Poland and Lithuania. We hope that in the future we will cooperate in similar projects.
On the 11th and 12th April, students Dušan in Gordan from Milka Šobar-Nataše Elementary School attended the 12th International Sculpture Colony in Črnomelj.
