We have many hardworking and talented students in our school. You probably haven't met most yet, but that’s why we help you learn more about them. It's important to get to know our school better, especially if you're a new student here. 

Today you will find out more about a year 8 student - Lara. She is a hardworking and successful swimmer and her hard work shows through her amazing performances. We managed to catch her right after the Croatian National Championship of 2023 which was held in Rijeka. Our phenomenal Lara returned from this competition with an array of medals ranging from bronze to gold and we asked her to assemble them for us on a school desk. It took a while!
