International student exchange with Gimnazija Lava, Celje

Slovenia international student exchange.

Our exchange programme started in April 2017. 24 grammar school students from Slovenia came to spend several days in our school, with our students and their families. We showed them round Strážnice, Milotice Park and Prague. They also learnt something about our language and traditions (including Strážnice folk dancing). Later, in June, 24 students of our school visited their new friends and their school in Celje, a busy city of historical and cultural importance. We also enjoyed the beauty of Ljubljana, the capital, and Piran, a picturesque seaside resort.

 In 2018, the exchange programme went on. As in the previous year, it included a variety of activities and experiences, but friendship and communication in English are the most important results for the students. We will remember not only what we have learnt about Slovenia, but also the friendly and open atmosphere created by our Slovene exchange partners.

 The participants´ comments:

“I am still excited! The best event this school year!”

“It was an incredible opportunity to get to know Slovene people, culture, countryside, and even learn some Slovene words and phrases.”

“We enjoyed our stay in Slovenia very much. The city of Celje is a wonderful place with an amazing history. We´re all excited about new friendship and experiences and would like to thank our host families for their hospitality and politeness.”

 Now we are getting ready for the third year of Celje – Strážnice exchange. We have already started planning the programme for our Slovene guests.
