Zasavica – 5th and 6th classes

Ambijentalna nastava za učenike petih i šestih razreda naše škole realizovana je 28. maja 2018. godine.
Prva destinacija bila je Muzej hleba u Pećincima gde su se učenici upoznali sa narodnom tradicijom ovog kraja u pravljenju hleba, kao i sa likovnim radom poznatog umetnika Slobodana Jeremića-Jeremije. Nakon nesvakidašnjeg prostora i veoma zanimljive priče o hlebu i običajima vezanim za njega, put smo nastavili ka Sremskoj Mitrovici.
Đaci su posetili Muzej Srema i obišli Stalnu postavku iz perioda postojanja Sirmiuma, a potom i arheološku postavku fosilnih životinja, ostataka ljudske civilizacije iz neolita, kao i materijal vezan za kulturu Kelta koji su ovaj prostor naseljavali u IV veku.
Prešavši jedan od najdužih pešačkih mostova u Evropi koji spaja Srem i Mačvu, put smo nastavili ka Prirodnom rezervatu Zasavica.
Tokom kratke, ali očaravajuće vožnje brodom kroz jedan deo ovog rezervata, imali smo priliku da se upoznamo sa prirodnim bogatstvima Zasavice, njenim biljnim i životinjskim svetom i da uživamo u prizorima koji se ne zaboravljaju.
Zvanični deo puta završen je obilaskom manastira Hopovo koji je smešten u mirisnim šumama Fruške gore. Jedan od najpoznatijih detalja prebogate istorije ovog manastira je činjenica da se upravo u njemu zamonašio naš poznati prosvetitelj, Dositej Obradović.
Obilazak Fruške gore završen je njenim panoramskim razgledanjem.
U večernjim časovima, sa zalaskom sunca, učenici su se vratili u Tavankut umornih, ali nasmejanih lica.

Manifestation „Paths of Ante Sekulić“

Učitelj Vedran Iskra sa ravnateljicom Stanislavom Stantić Prćić iz Tavankuta

U svibnju smo se prisjetili života i djela Ante Sekulića, zasigurno najznačjanijeg tavankutskog književnika, filologa i jeziko­slovca. Sekulić je rođen u Tavankutu, no živio je i u brojnim gradovima diljem Hrvatske, a radio je i kao gimnazijski i kao sveučilišni profesor. Njegove su pjesme danas neizostavni dio hrvatske književnosti u Vojvodini, a postale su i dio nastavnoga gradiva.
Tijekom trodnevne manifestacije (see gallery of pictures), našu su školu posjetili učenici, nastavnici i ravnateljica II. osnovne škole Vrbovec iz Hrvatske. Sudjelujući u prigodno osmišljenim radionicama učenici su se mogli upoznati s nekima od najznačajnijih Sekulićevih pjesama, ali i naučiti o njegovu životu, upoznati se s rječničkim blagom popisanim u njegovu „Rječniku govora bačkih Hrvata“. Učili su i izrađivati ukrase od slame, tehniku karakterističnu upravo za kulturnu tradiciju Tavankuta, a u turističkom razgledavanju obišli su Suboticu, posjetili katedralu i sinagogu te prošetali Palićem. U psihološkim radionicama najprije su se na jedan zabavniji način upoznali, a zatim se i učili važnosti uvažavanja drugoga u radionici „Mostovi tolerancije“.
Središnji dio ove manifestacije bio je svečani program u kojem su sudjelovali učenici obje škole. Gosti iz Vrbovca za ovu su priliku pripremili recital Sekulićevih pjesama, a naši su učenici u kratkom igrokazu predstavili Sekulićeva prisjećanja na život u Tavankutu i rano djetinjstvo, protkano recitacijom njegovih pjesama.
Program je završen dodjelom Sekulićevih knjiga svim sudionicima programa i svim gostima kao uspomenu na sudjelovanje u prvoj manifestaciji ovakve vrste u našoj školi.
Manifestaciju je financijski podržao i omogućio Središnji državni ured za Hrvate izvan Republike Hrvatske, a knjige koje su poklonjene svim sudionicima svečanoga programa i svim gostima donirao je Katolički institut za kulturu, povijest i duhovnost Ivan Antunović.

Students and teachers made a billboard on the World Theater Day.
We look forward to an agreed departure to the theater in Subotica, where we will round up the story of the World Theater Day.

Despotovac – a view of the trip

Visiting the Monument to the Unknown Hero

During the two-day excursion, the students of the seventh and eighth grades visited several important tourist destinations on April 9 and 10, 2018, accompanied by their teachers Kristijan Milanković, Emina Tikvicki, Danijela Radnić and Slađana Knežević.
The first day we visited Mount Avala and the Avala TV tower. Next stop was Smederevo, where we visited Smederevo fortress - built by the 15th century despot Đurađ Branković.
Furthermore, we visited the archaeological site Viminacium near Kostolac, the Roman military headquarters and the capital of the Roman province. We visited Upper Moesia - one of the two largest fortifications in the province and the central point in the defense of this Danube region. Upon arrival in Despotovac, we settled in the lodge "Resava". After dinner, there was a disco night.

Other parts of  Serbia

The second day we visited the Manasija monastery, which was built by the Serbian despot Stefan Lazarević at the beginning of the 15th century. The monastery is famous for the Resava school. Monks who nurtured literature and copywriting gathered there.
We also visited Resavska cave, our biggest and most beautiful cave, accompanied by a speleologist.
The other natural attraction we visited was the largest waterfall in Serbia, Big Buka. It belongs to the hydrosystem of the Lisine River and is over 20 meters high.
Next stop was Svilajnac, where we visited the Natural History Center. The students were presented with a mix of science, education, history and tourism in a very specific way.
While coming home, the students took part in a quiz organized by our guide. In a very interesting and humorous way, we recapped important information that we had learned during this beautiful trip.
We returned home with a lot of positive impressions.
