Our school is opening its gates on the beginning of September. We are looking forward to spend an adventure year together with our pupils, teachers and newly also volunteers from allover world.
This is an alternative educational project for primary school children. Our philosophy is based on individual and friendly approach to children. We want to help children to develop their own creativity, self -competence and the sense of responsibility like the part of gained knowledge.
The school is the private institution providing primary school education for 22 children and hiring two class teachers plus two English tutors. We are strongly supported by the community of parents, who can also take part in the education. Due to this the monthly fee can be affordable for more parents.
The school is placed in the local environmental centrum CSOP Kosenka. It is a lovely historical building which gives children lots of opportunities to learn both inside or outside.
Every week has its own topic which we discuss together with children on the beginning of week. Education is divided into particular educational blocks which changes every 1,5 hour. One day of week we spent outside playing or searching or rather working on concrete topic. The last day of week is opened for parents to get involved with educational projects of their choice.
Cooking / shopping
We expect volunteers to become the part of our team and join the fun because we love what we are doing. Besides teaching English we would be happy if volunteers would prepare a tutorial day about their country, culture, about their work/hobby. This is a great way for children how to learn. We are also organising several educational and cultural events during the year which volunteers can take part in. We will be happy if volunteers could help us in our communal activities and we will support them in discovering the local region and help them if they need any guidance in creating educational activities for school.
Beside this volunteers will have the opportunity to discover unique traditions of the Southern Walachia region . We can teach you how to make a real kyselica soup or sing some nice folk songs. If you are interested we can also teach you some specific handcraft techniques.
We are looking for enhusiastic people to participate in educational projects. Particularly in teaching English. We expect volunteers to help the English tutor during the classes and help the children to improve their communicative skills ant their self confidence while speaking English. Moreover volunteers would help us to make the lessons more fun and lively and it would be a great experience for children to meet people from allover the world and to discover new culture. You can create English games, creative projects or just chat with children.
Volunteers will be accommodated at the families who participate in the school. They will have their private room with bed or sofa. Kitchen and bathroom will be shared with the family. Volunteers can expect friendly background and family atmosphere.
You will share the food together in the family, during the time spending in the school you will receive the lunch .
Community school is based in a beautiful little town Valasske Klobouky which is a heart of the surrounding region. There is plenty of cultural events and concerts during the year. Local people are very proud of their cultural heritage so thanks to that you can visit here plenty of craft markets, events, folc concerts and workshops based on presenting and passing on the knowledge of the ancestors.
Beautiful surrounding areas lure to make trips around and discover. It is not a problem to take a bus or train thus public transport is still very cheap and frequent.
