World book night event – gimnazija Vič

On 21st of April, a group of creative student writers, drawers and a songwriter and performer in one person, supported by their mentor Maja Rebernik Nerat and the principle Mrs. Lidija Žigon, participated Gimnazija Vič’s World Book Night Event.
Students contributed their short stories, a comic, a drawing and a song, which were based on selected Shakespeare’s quotes. Vito Tkalčič and Gaja Kuščer were among the winners of the short story competition and had their stories read to the keen literature primary and secondary school students. Filip Pretner’s comic and Jona Koltaj’s drawing were also observed with great admiration.
When our school was about to present itself, Jona, Filip, Vito, Lorena, Gaja and Yon recited a text incorporating Shakespeare’s quotes, which, in a way, brought together all the material we had prepared for the event. Needless to say, their performance was outstanding. At last, but far from the least, Maja Marrusig sang her own song and astounded everybody present in the audience, which awarded her with a loud and long applause.
Below there is a list with all the students involved in the project, as well as the text recited at the event, and some photos taken there, so that we can all remember that great day. All the stories were also published in a small brochure which you can read at the school’s library. Jona’s drawing and Filip’s comic will also be displayed in our school. The exact location is still to be found.
I would like to express deep and sincere gratitude to my group of extremely talented individuals, who are about to make us extremely proud some day.
I am ever so proud of you and I wish you all the best!

The text recited:
FROM WAY UP HIGH
OUR PLANET,
THE HEAVENLY KINGDOM
IT MAY SEEM TO BE.
A CLOSER INSPECTION,
HOWEVER, THE TRUTH REVEALS:
All that glitters is not gold!

SOMETHING IS ROTTEN
IN THE KINGDOM OF MANKIND!

WARS, POLLUTION, CHILD LABOUR, POVERTY, FEMINE.,.
AMONG OTHER HUMAN VICES,
TORTURE THE
BRITTLE MOTHER OF NATURE.

MAN IS TO REALISE THE TRUTH!

HELL IS EMPTY,
ALL THE DEVILS ARE HERE!

THE WHEEL IS COME FULL CIRCLE.

AND IT IS ON US TO DECIDE:
TO BE OR NOT TO BE?
THAT IS THE QUESTION.

TO BE!!!

THIS ABOVE ALL; TO THINE OWN
SELF BE TRUE.

TO THINE OWN SELF BE TRUE,
AND IT MUST FOLLOW,
AS THE NIGHT THE DAY,
THOU CANST NOT
THEN BE FALSE TO ANY MAN.

FOR
WHAT A PIECE OF WORK IS A MAN
HOW NOBLE IN REASON,
HOW INFINITE IN FACULTIES,
IN FORM AND MOVING
HOW EXPRESS AND ADMIRABLE,
IN ACTION HOW LIKE AN ANGEL,
IN APPREHENSION HOW LIKE A GOD.

HOWEVER, BEWARE,

TALKING ISN’T DOING.
IT IS A
KIND OF GOOD DEED TO SAY WELL,
AND YET WORDS ARE NOT DEEDS.

LET’S ACT TODAY!
