Donations of food and clothing for flood victims in Slavonia are being collected regularly from AISZ for distribution to those in need.
A convenient way to donate money to Red Cross relief efforts, so that the most needed supplies can be bought, is to make a telephone call to the number 0609011, which will result in a 6.25kn donation (including VAT).

On Wednesday 14 May we had a very special visitor: Ms. Sjenka Leslie of Scholastic came from London to announce to a special elementary school assembly that three Senior Kindergarten boys, Leo, Alex & Matej, had won the worldwide Scholastic contest 'Kids are Authors' with their picture book 'How to Get a Girlfriend'.
Ms. Leslie informed us that it was the first time in the contest's 16 year history that an entry from a school outside of the USA had won, and that there had been more than 1,000 entries this year.

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.
