Students attending Croatian language classes and students attending Croatian with Elements of National Culture attended the 18th Croatian Book and Words Day program on Thursday, 24 October on the occasion of celebrating Balint Vujkov Days.
The program was held at HKC "Bunjevačko kolo" and included performances by students from "Matko Vuković" Elementary School and kindergarten children from "Petar Pan" Tavankut, in addition to the tamburitza orchestra led by Mira Temunović. Our school committed to prepare the program for the next year - it was announced on this occasion.
We also visited the Subotica City Museum. We viewed the Nature and Man setting of the museum's Natural History Department and got a chance to see the richness of northern Bačka flora and fauna.
We will have fond memories of that lovely autumn day.

Our students, accompanied by their teachers, celebrated Necktie Day on Friday, 18 October in Subotica Korzo. For this occasion, they made practical souvenirs, bookmarkers with neckties made in straw-work art technique. Along with the bookmarkers, the Subotica people were also given a leaflet with brief information and interesting information about the history of the necktie, and those interested could participate in the quiz. The quiz required a smartphone to scan the QR code and get to the quiz link on the school website. All participants were very successful, and as a reward they were able to win colorful shirts with a paper necktie made in the origami technique. At the very beginning, Hrvoje Vuković, Consul First Class of the Consulate General of the Republic of Croatia in the Republic of Serbia in Subotica, joined the students in celebrating Necktie Day.
Necktie is an original Croatian product, spread around the world by Croatian soldiers in the service of the French King Louis XIV. Since 2003, October 18 has been celebrated as Necktie Day and our school has been participating in this event for the seventh consecutive year.

In Viminacium we also visited an exhibition presenting portraits of 18 Roman emperors born in the territory of modern-day Serbia, cast in bronze and a detailed model- the reconstruction of the civil settlement and the legionary fort of Viminacium. A special attraction within the Viminacium archeological park is the paleontological park where mammoths discovered in the Drmno surface mine and on the outskirts of the Roman site are presented. The most significant finding is the mammoth, preserved in its entirety, known as Vika.
Upon arrival in Despotovac, we settled in the lodge „TLS Company“. After dinner, there was a disco night.
