WHEN TEACHERS WERE KIDS

Have you ever wondered what those very professional people called teachers were like as children? Yes, believe it or not, they too were once children. Well, we were curious so three of our added team members from Year 7 dared to risk it and ask the grown-ups some questions about their school days...






WHAT SPORT DID YOU DO?

Mr Blažević: Rowing.

ARE YOU STILL IN TOUCH WITH YOUR BEST FRIEND FROM SCHOOL?

Ms Kaya: Yes.

WHO WAS YOUR FIRST CRUSH?

Ms Maričić: A boy from my class. Luka. I gave him a snack during lunch and helped him with homework.

Ms Ključarić: I never got a 1.

Ms Đurić: Math.

WHAT DID YOU DO IN YOUR FREE TIME?

Ms Manda: I relaxed and hung around with my friends.

WHO WAS YOUR FAVOURITE PERSON TO SIT WITH AND WHY?

We thank all the teachers who found the time to share their bits of secrets with us. We did not manage to talk to them all, so there is more to look forward to in the future.
