Our middle school 'TechKopila' team and teacher Ms. Suzy Becker were featured on national TV recently.
In the feature, which appeared on HRT's morning show 'Dobro jutro Hrvatska', the team talked about their use of social media to bring about positive change. Their goal is to raise $28,000 to equip a computer lab at the Kopila Valley School in Nepal, through online fundraising techniques.

Two teams of middle schoolers travelled to the American International School of Budapest at the weekend for a CEESA Knowledge Bowl tournament. There were 16 teams from all over the region.
Our Team B reached the final of the two-day contest undefeated, but then lost to Moscow. They took second place, and brought home an impressive trophy! Congratulations to Sam, Gabriel and Marko (pictured here).
Team A also did well throughout the contest. Well done to Alex, Dasha and SooYoung.
Many thanks to coaches Ms. Šprljan and Ms. Marcich for their dedication and support.
JK3/JK4 are continuing their service-learning activities and fundraising for Hundzukani Primary School, South Africa. As part of our environmental study and upcoming Earth Day (April 22), we are collecting empty PLASTIC bottles in the green boxes on each floor. Please make sure bottles still have their label on (only those are worth 50 lipa). So far we already have about 70 bottles, read: 35 kn! We will keep you posted!
Thank you for your support in making our planet a better place for everyone!

Upon returning from the annual CEESA conference in Vienna last week, Dr. Harris wasted no time presenting a service-learning award to the middle school TechKopila campaign team.
The award was one of five TIECARE awards given to recognise oustanding service-learning work, and came with a cheque for $1,000. The money will be added to the funds already rasied by the team, which is facilitated by IT teacher Ms. Suzy Becker.
