Our primary aim is that every child is eager to come to school, and to enthusiastically, wanting to share all he or she has learned or experienced.
To learn and develop his or her talents to their full potential. To overcome difficulties in a positive way. To create friendships. To build self-confidence and to believe that he can manage whatever life throws at him.
At primary school, the children are encouraged to learn to manage their mistakes. The aim of the teaching process is to give all the children educational stimulation in relation to their potential, as in a class there may be different levels of maturity, knowledge, rate of development, interests and motives.
Using material from books for the appropriate class and for classes of higher levels in printed and electronic format.
Utilizing real material in each lesson (especially in the self-organization, lessons) with the aim that the children of each class will create their own work display table.
Every day, the teachers gather feedback on what the students remember in the form of short five minute oral or written tests so that they can set new educational targets.
Each student works in a team or group every day (different groups for each subject and activity) or alone. There is no homework set. When a student is involved in a project, he or she will complete it in cooperation with the team either at school, or alone within a specific time framework.
The parents read and discuss, with the child, his or her diary every day so that they can find out what their child has been working on. Every Friday they can also see the books and other materials that have been used all week in class.
