January is a special month for those who are competitive and love English. It is the time when English Language Olympiads are organised. The best students pit their strength against each other and try to cope with really difficult tasks and test their ´English feeling´.
February the 7th wasn’t just an ordinary Saturday. In the dining hall of our school, the 4th Annual Ball was held . Preparations started the day before with the decorating of the hall, and the setting of tables – many of us students helped with the preparations. We paid attention even to the smallest details, such as the alignment of bottles on the tables or whether the lanterns above the dance floor hung symmetricaly. The Ball officially started at 6pm, but half of the guests were fashionably late. The band which played that evening called, Kamasi, entertained the guests not only with their music of all genres, but also with their witty and funny comments. In addition to dancing some refreshments were also important– salty snacks, after a delicious dinner, sweet cakes, and healthy fruit. You could also enjoy conversations with former students and friends when you weren’t ancing. The highlight of the evening was a raffle. You had the chance to win some immediate prizes such as umbrellas, mugs, scarfs, etc, and if you weren’t lucky in winning one of the immediate prizes, you still had a chance to win some of the main prizes which varied from gift baskets to the student´s prize - a coupon to cancel a mark 5 in school (the worst mark), to the first prize - a new TV set. By the way, congratulations to this year´s winners. To sum up this event with one word ... AWESOME. We are already looking forward to next year´s ball.
Like every year, students from 4.B celebrated Christmas together by having a christmas party with some Slovak Christmas traditions.
Have you ever eaten at a vegan restaurant that had roast duck on the menu? I would not have either, that is, if it hadn’t been for Martin Krč, who evidently is much better at writing than he is at picking ethical places to eat. This past autumn, Krč took a chance and entered a writing competition that resulted in a trip to Prague, a four star hotel, beer halls, and a place in the top ten at the National Literary Award ceremony.
