Getting together with Melita Rundek

The popular Croatian children’s writer Ms. Melita Rundek visited our school on May 22nd. It was a great follow-up after we read her novel ˝Dogs Not Allowed˝ during the Croatian language classes. This novel is the winner of the “Ivana Brlić-Mažuranić Prize” for 1999. The MYP1 students had the opportunity to interview Ms. Melita Rundek and find out more about her work.

The entire interview was characterised by the great mutual interactions and comfortable mingling. We clicked instantly! Ms. Melita told us how she became a writer, how her books came to be and what they meant to her. She enriched her life story with the interesting and illustrative anecdotes. We were all inspired and had many questions which Melita answered originally and with a sense of humour.

We would like to thank Melita Rundek for her visit and look forward to our next meeting and her new book.

MYP1 students recorded their impressions:

Kad sam ugledala Melitu Rundek, mislila sam da će biti jako ozbiljna i da joj se nećemo svidjeti.
Očito sam pogriješila. Bilo nam je super i nadam se da ćemo se ponovno vidjeti.
When I first saw Melita Rundek, I thought she would be very serious and that she would not like us.
Obviously I was wrong. We had a great time and I hope we will meet again.
