I helped him because he needed my help
I helped him because he needed my help Here is a brief interview with Marko Žagar, an outstanding grade 1 pupil of Èabar elementary school (Croatia).

Marko, you told us that you enjoy going to school. Why?
I enjoy going to school because I have many friends there. My best friends are Jakov, Josip, Andrija and Nikola. We play together and we understand each other. I like to play a lot especially the game “The black queen”. At home I play with my brother Luka. I also enjoy riding my bicycle. At home I also help my father especially in gathering wood. In Èabar it snows a lot, and often, we cannot go out of the house.

Marko, you have a very special t-shirt.
Yes, at school, Sr. Dragica taught us how to dye t-shirts. We tied the shirts, put them in colored boiling water, and then undid the knots. Designs were formed in the parts where the t-shirts were tied. I liked this initiative very much so I did it at home, too. I have given to my neighbors these t-shirts that I have designed.

Last year you won the prize for generosity. What have you done to win this prize?
I like to help people, especially those who are less fortunate, in whatever sense. In my class there is a boy named Andrija who needs to be helped and assisted. I was very attentive to his needs and I have helped him whenever he needed some help, especially in putting on his rubber shoes because he cannot do it by himself. When he arrives in school, brought by somebody, I immediately go to him so we can play together. We have become very good friends.

What was the prize you received?
I’ve received, as my prize, a very beautiful and unusual book from the School’s president, Ivan Kvesiæ, teacher Ksenija Peterlin and the Commission in charge of this Award. As I mentioned, the book is unusual. On it is written “To Marko Žagar, Grade 1 pupil of Èabar elementary school, an award for his generosity”. When I open the book, something comes out which is the theme of that particular chapter.

Would you like to give a message to other children?
After a few minutes of silence, Marko responds with his limpid, joyful and radiant eyes:
I did not help Andrija in order to win the prize, but because I saw that he needed my help, and I felt good in doing it. We need to help others. My other classmates, seeing my example, started also to help, and so now we are many who help others.

The FMA community in the mountainous region of Gorski kotar was opened in 2001. The Sisters teach catechesis in the elementary, secondary and high schools. The school where Marko studies is an eco-school that has received numerous awards because of its thrust towards eco-solidarity and the promotion of traditional and cultural values.
