‘Why fit in when you were born to stand out'... This is one of Dr. Seuss' classical quotes which can be seen up on the wall in our new school 'lounge room'. This latest addition which opened at the start of semester two has been a hit amongst our staff and students. The multi-purpose facility is being used for guided reading, playing games and free time.
The official launch of 300 Years of Leadership and Innovation was a truly memorable occasion, with more than 700 guests from all over the world, including MPs and members of the media, gathering in the historic setting of Westminster Abbey's Cloisters to attend the presentation of this prestigious publication. Launched to coincide with the 300th anniversary of the appointment of Britain's first prime minister, Robert Walpole, in 1721, and in the year of Her Majesty The Queen's 95th birthday, the book celebrates leadership across the full spectrum of British society: from Parliament and Crown to captains of industry and those pushing the boundaries of innovation. The book was presented by the editors Gordon Marsden, MP, the History of Parliament Trust's chairman, Royal correspondent Robert Jobson and Stephen van der Merwe from St. James House. Celebrating the best of British leadership, 300 Years of Leadership and Innovation features expertly written articles on those who have shaped British society, past and present: from Walpole to Cromwell, Churcill to Blair, The Queen and Prince Charles to captains of industry and innovation. Among other captains of industry and innovation there is a page in chapter Education and Creative Minds dedicated to our founder and Principal dr. sc. Martin-Tino Časl and his family, supporting wife Zdenka Časl and his son Tino Sven Časl. His educational philosophy is presented under the title Croatian theory. After previous articles about dr. sc. Martin-Tino Časl's work and achivements in education, science and sport in Innovation 800 (monography celebrating 800th anniversary of Cambridge University) and also in The Commonwealth at 70: From Westminster to the World (celebrating 70th anniversary of the Commonwealth of Nations) it is another compliment to our founder and Principal dr. Časl and our school. The British International School of Zagreb is the only school out of UK that is presented in this prestigious publication.
