A book festival

International Fair of Books and Teaching Aids, The Interliber, took place from Tuesday, November 13 to Sunday  November 18. Students, teachers and parents attended this fair and the tour was organised by our school. After visiting numerous fair stands, we attended the presentation of the book Croatian Spring and the Croatian political emigration by the young Croatian scientist Wollfy Krasic and received gifts from Ante Žužul, Ph.D, CEO of  Školska Knjiga publishing house.The visit to Zagreb continued with a short visit to the city center , after which we attended the performance Huddersfield at The Zagreb Youth Theater.
On the second day of the tour, we visited Ogulin, the Croatian city with extremely rich history, and beautiful landscape as well. Within the Ogulin Frankopan castle, besides the museum space, there is also The House of Fairy Tales dedicated to the most famous Croatian children's writer Ivana Brlić-Mazuranić, who was born in Ogulin. Numerous fairy tales of this Croatian Andersen were revived in the museum setting The House of Fairy Tales. In the immediate vicinity of the Francopan castle there is the famous Đula's chasm, a place where river Dobra ends. Then we were hosted by the Ogulin City Library, whose employees presented its rich collection. We also went to the Oštarska parish where the parish priest Ante Luketić welcomed us to the Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Presenting his extremely rich collection of books, the parish priest Luketić told us about the history of the Ogulin region, as well as the history and development of the Glagolitic script. During this time, the youngest showed their knowledge of the Glagolitic script at the workshop Small Oštar glagolitas, which was designed and led by Mirjana Grubišić, a teacher from Oštar.
Before leaving, we exchanged gifts with our hosts and agreed to continue the cooperation in Tavankut.
A visit to Interliber, which has been organized for several years, was financially supported by the City of Zagreb, the County of Zagreb and Školska Knjiga publishing house. (See the picture gallery)

Children’s Day

For the International Children's Day, a gift - a poem:

Za milion godina

Kada jedna gruba reč
ko vrata teška zatvori sve prolaze
kada dan ko kamen tvrd
sruši se sa neba na tvoj nežni dlan
i dok noć u kojoj nema zvezda caruje
u samoći sa svih strana strah te obuzme.

Kada tmurno jutro osvane
u tvojim tužnim mislima
kada kiše jesenje zamagle ti
pogled ispred prozora
jedna ruka traži te i želi da ti da
dodir nežnosti za bar milion godina.

Nikad ne boj se, s tobom neko je
ko želi ljubav da ti da
deo svoga toplog sna
nikad ne boj se, ljubav jača je
deca u nama znaju sve
pravi put u nove sne.

Kada strašne bure zaprete
da razbiju tvoj mali brod
kada reči šture
pokušaju da nađu izgovor
jedna ruka traži te i želi da ti da
dodir nežnosti za bar milion godina.

The YU Rock Mission included performers like Oliver Mandic, Zeljko Bebek, Marina Perazic, Momcilo Bajagic-Bajaga, Aki Rahimovski, Slađana Milošević, Dado Topić, Masimo Savić, Zdravko Čolić, Jura Stublić, Peđa D'Boy, Vlatko Stefanovski, Bora Djordjevic, Goran Bregovic and many others.

The World Tolerance Day is celebrated since 1995 as a day when we need to remind ourselves of the needs of mutual respect and respect regardless of the differences that exist among people.
