We wake up in Slovenia surrounded by snow!

Our first school is in Mojstrana

Dani from Hungary leads us to the second school in Kranj.

At this school, OŠ Staneta Žagarja Kranj, we are received by corridors full of cheering children.

The Principal leads us up the school stairway ....

... to the roof of the school

Everyone assembles in the gym

Students from different classes perform songs, poetry and recitations.

The artwork on the green background has been created by Grade 3 children. This artwork is a replica of art that they made and sent to Paris, which will be featured in a large mural combining artwork from children in Rome, Paris and Colorado Springs.

The teachers put together such a beautiful program for us. This school works with the Al Oerter Foundation, which is run by Cathy Oerter.

This young girl performed an amazing dance to a version of Louis Armstrong's 'Wonderful World'.

Our third and final school visit today is to Predoslje primary School.

We receive a beautiful gift from the school.
