This short contribution was sent to us by Marija Kermavnar, principal of the Ciciban kindergarten. 

Why was Friday 22 April 2016 a special day? Because more than 200 children from Ciciban kindergarten had great pleasure in preparing and performing a wonderful show for our Ljubljana. The children and their professional staff did nine songs. Then all proudly sang the ‘hymn’ of  Ljubljana. Zate., accompanied by our teacher on guitar.  This followed the children’s embellishment of local standard children’s songs; an Old Man goes down the Road, the Cat has no Tail, the Hiding Place under the Basket, Nursery Rhymes and Teases, the Girl of Spring, the Great Procession of Green George and the Carriage, baskets, gifts, songs, instruments;  My Father has two Horses, Green George – give him, give him; John of Carniola, the Green Backpack and finally Ljubljana Zate to close.

I would highlight that the children really enjoyed it, were very relaxed, that parents came to support the event in large numbers, that every song had interesting and diverse props and live music. The children took pride in using different techniques to make hearts and donated them to our Ljubljana.  Above all else, we had many spectators to see us conjure up a wonderful presentation and a smile on the faces of all participants.

We are proud of our Ljubljana and we at Ciciban are aware that attitudes to one's homeland are developed very early in life. As principal I am very proud of my staff and our children, especially at this event.
