The Book Fair

Sometimes all you need is to disappear; to get lost in stories and explorations. Through books one can dive into oceans of magic, fairy tales and adventures. Thanks to an English book distribution company Megabooks we got a chance to wander through a extraordinary book forest, and to take home a piece of the magic with us.

bookmarks connect schools

On 25th and 26th October 2018, an exhibition of bookmarks made by BESST pupils took place at our school. The exhibition was successful and, after it was finished, the bookmarks were sent to the partner school in Bošany, who prepared bookmarks for us.

Theatre Visit

On 11th November we visited Teatro Wustenrot in Bratislava to see Ray Bradbury`s beautiful and interesting musical PYGMALION performed by English Drama Group. For many of us it was a great opportunity to compare the well-known My Fair Lady musical starring Audrey Hepburn with the theater adaptation and to see how the actors handled some of the famous scenes and dialogues.
