Celebrating the best of humanity, one story at a time.

Hello everybody and welcome to the My hero site of Primary school Naklo 9th class students from a small village Naklo in Slovenia, Europe.

It's our second time participating in learning circles and this time we decided to tell the world about our heroes.

Our country, Slovenia, is small but we have many people that we are proud of so we want to share their stories with the whole world.

The topic of heroes is in our curriculum but the students wrote about their heroes as an extra task and we all hope that you will like their work and learn many new things as we have in this learning circle.
