Royal Visits

In 2019, His Royal Highness, The Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, visited Slovenia once again to promote the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award for Young People, referred to as MEPI here in Slovenia.

Our students were ambassadors to the school during an official event held at the Grand Union Hotel, welcoming and ushering guests as they arrived, where Prince Edward gave a speech discussing the importance of non-formal education for young people and its relevance to the labour market, in light of future jobs. A group of our students also performed in Tivoli Park at another MEPI event that same day, which Prince Edward also attended.
