School week done differently - balloon in the air

School week done differently

“School done differently” is a national program whose purpose is to contribute to the development of learning competence and socio-emotional abilities among pupils. This is a program dedicated to extracurricular activities. In this week, schools are doing their best to provide young people with the most exciting experiences of unconventional learning.

For one week, regular classes are replaced by special activities that parents, students and teachers can set up and organize together.

Activities are organized from Monday to Friday, and the number of hours spent together should be equal to the number of hours normally spent in classrooms. Students that miss “School done differently” will be absent in the catalog.

The National Program “School done differently” has a duration of 5 consecutive working days during the school year and can be organized on the basis of a plan that remains at the decision of the school.

School and Extracurricular activities

Applied sciences club

In the High school The Applied Sciences Club was founded – a free, non-formal framework in which students, along with teachers, learn about how science is applied in day-to-day life.

We care about life, too!

This activity involves growing plants in urban areas – mainly the interior of buildings, and is carried out over a longer period of time (1 semester). In this activity we learn about ecology, sustainability and how to sustain long-term activities.

Job interview

The idea of this activity started from the activities presented by our partners in the De-schooling project. Thus, we invite an HR specialist to simulate an interview , so that students can make a realistic picture of the world of work.

Within the project DE-SCHOOLING, the activities of the first year aimed inter connections for involving students in the community life at the school level and encouraging them to make decisions about the future. Modules were developed that mainly aimed at the development of entrepreneurial and life skills, as well as activities to stimulate creativity and self-knowledge. Moreover, due to episodic character of the activities, the students have learned to plan their activities in the medium and long term.
