Autumn Festival at Knezija

On October 11th we actively participated in the Autumn Festival at Knezija and represented our School Cooperative "That's it". Under the guidance of our School Co-op Leader, Ms. Ivana Devernay Cimic, we were exhibiting and selling our own co-op handmade products. There were also stands from Primary School Horvati, Matija Gubec Kindergarten and Kamensko Association.

It was a nice hot day and everyone was enthusiastic, especially because the President of the Republic of Croatia was expected. The program started at 10 o'clock when there was a show for kindergarten children. Later there were some national dances performed by the elders living in Knezija. While enjoying our refreshments we had a visit from our Service as Action Leader, Ms. Ina Tomic and our Music teacher, Ms. Antonia Mimica. Our Music teacher sang the klapa songs with the girls from the national programme. The festival was also enriched by the performance of African drummers.

The President of the Republic of Croatia, Mr. Ivo Josipovic showed his support by visiting the Festival. He enjoyed in conversation with us while we enthusiastically and proudly showed him our hand-made work. He bought a small dwarf made out of chestnut and acorn. We gave him some gifts - two red and white hearts and an energy bar.

Thanks to the engagement and efforts of all of us, our School Cooperative achieved another great success that we can be all proud of.
