DAY 1 ERASMUS PLUS SLOVENIA
On Monday, 13. 3. 2017 the Slovenian mobility has started officially. Our school Media and Graphic technology secondary school hosted around 50 guests from Turkey, Italy, Portugal, Check Republic and Poland.
Today is Monday, and we started the mobility with a welcome event. We started the welcome, conference with our Slovenian national anthem, and after that me and Jernej wished a good morning to our guests and announced our headmistress miss Ana Šterbenc and after her our coordinator, professor Vladimir Janež to say a few words to our guests. We also enjoyed some live music performed by two of our students and after that we got introduced to all the students and teachers and heard a few words about their school.
When the conference was over, we got some time to get some snacks and some tea and coffe. We then showed every individual country our school; we showed them our television studio, printery and animation studio. Everyone was really impressed and really liked out school, which made us all very happy! When the school tour was over, we had lunch and after that we walked to the city centre, all the way to our Ljubljana castle. We then walked up to the castle and got a nice, guided tour around the castle. The tour was really interesting for all of us, even the Slovenian students, because they also showed us some historical figures(actors dressed like old characters), for example, we meet a very luxurious couple that lived and owned the castle at some point in history and also we meet the very first major of Ljubljana. When the tour was over, we also had some time to look around the castle on our own as well and also go to the tower that gave us all a really nice view of Ljubljana.
When that was over, we got a refreshing drink at the bar on the castle and then went either home or to the hotel to freshen up and get ready for the dinner at the restaurant Vodnikov Hram in Ljubljana. Personally, I think the first day was really nice and interesting for everyone, since we all got to see our school, the magnificent Ljubana castle and also meet new people and make new friends even on the first day. The day was documented by 3 Slovenian students and 1 Finnish exchange student(Venla) and a Sweedish exchange student(Selena).
