About Medvode, our home town
Medvode is a town 12 km far from the centre of the capital Ljubljana, where there is the confluence of the river Sava and the Sora at the south – east edge of the Sorica field.
Medvode lies between the two rivers that’s why it got that name (Medvode – between water). It’s also surrounded by nice peaks and the Alps at the back.
About School
There are many interesting sights, beside there is also Medvode hydroelectric power station. There are 400 pupils attending it. Pupils who live further from school come by school bus. The lessons are mainly in the mornings. School starts at 8.15 and finishes at 14.00. Pupils are included in many activities like: naturalistic (science), traffic, biological and computing clubs. Their handy skills can be tested in art club or in the club of handy work. They like to attend the courses of foreign languages, journalistic and drama clubs and a school choir.
There are also many sport activities like badminton, basketball, volleyball, football and athletics. We have got a mountain club which cooperates with the other schools in the commune of Medvode. Our school has got two branch schools: Topol and Sora.
