The President of the Republic of Slovenia Borut Pahor, issued an order for the conferral of a State Decoration of the Republic of Slovenia on 8th June 2018 to SILA-IWCL International Women’s Club Ljubljana and Magazine Gasilec. Ana Šubic, a student of the Diocesan Classical Gymnasium and the 2018 national winner of the international translation contest Juvenes translatores was invited by the Office of the President of the Republic to read the orders and translate a couple of thank you speeches.
Ana enjoyed every minute of it, especially the relaxed attitude of the organising team and the solemnity of the event. “On stage I felt quite nervous before translating, eventually I calmed down. The protocol is really strict there.”, she added. The school community congratulates Ana for her excellent translation work in the presidential palace and wishes her all the best in facing further translation challenges! /Lily Schweiger Kotar/
