ACES Conference at MG

From March 10th to 12th our school hosted the ACES Conference. ACES, the Association of Central European Schools that our school joined in 2017, is an umbrella organisation which represents and provides services to IB schools in Central Europe. Representatives from 24 schools in Austria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia have been invited.

The Association of Central European Schools represents and promotes the educational and public interests of IB member schools and their communities, working together to support learning and fosters sharing among member schools and support professional development.

Our principal Ms. Ljiljana Klinger opened the conference with a warm welcome speech after which the participants were taken on a 45-minute school tour led by our MYP3 students - Ana, Hui Di and Noora. The students have not only prepared themselves for the school tour, but were spontaneously and professionally engaged in the exchange with the heads of Central European schools, informing them about all the details that interested them and presented our school in the best possible way.

The conference, besides bringing together all participants, is the platform where experiences are presented, shared and reflected. This evaluation process leads to the formulation of quality criteria for the values of international school projects as well as to the development of new ideas for joint cooperation.

The conference wrapped up with a cultural experience during which the participants had the opportunity to get to know Zagreb and its cultural and historical sights.
