Congrats to Winners!

Festival of Children's Music Creativity

The Festival of Children's Music Creativity was held on May 12 and 13, 2017 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb. The festival brings together primary school students from all over Croatia, who stand out with their talents in music activities. At the festival 23 primary schools from all over Croatia competed, and nearly 600 students presented their talents in music creativity in the widest sense: from composing, singing and playing. The students were competing in three categories: Musicals, Young Authors and School Musicals.

We would like to congratulate to Jadran (MYP2) and the Music teacher Ms. Antonia Mimica for a remarkable success at the Festival. Jadran impressed the expert jury and the audience with his musical and poetry talents and won First Prize in the category of "Young Authors" with his composition "Minion Walk". Bravo, Jadran, we are all happy and proud of your admirable achievement!

Tradition and Contemporary Exhibition

Our students visited the Opening Ceremony of the Tradition and Contemporary Exhibition on May 20th at the Mimara Museum. This year's theme was Protection of natural environment and biodiversity in children's artistic expression. The students, under the great guidance of their Visual Art teacher Ms. Ivana Devernay Cimic, have greatly presented the protected species of insects in the linocut technique. We would like to congratulate to our MYP1 students - Alexander, David Z., and Marko whose art work was selected for the Tradition and Contemporary Exhibition and whose creativity showed how our cultural and natural heritage could be cherished through art as well. Bravo!!!
