We have chosen a new program for our 2023 Summer School, featuring sports, practical knowledge and skills as the main content. Students will enjoy a wide range of experiential workshops specifically designed for their age groups.
“SAVE THE PLANET” is the central theme for this year’s Summer School.
A number of age-appropriate workshops have been prepared
Students will enjoy practicing their favourite SPORTS in the school sports facilities, such as: volleyball, football, ping-pong and sport competitions. They will learn both the history and technique of each sport.
We have dedicated an important space to developing creativity through workshops such as RECYCLING ART, where students will develop different artistic techniques using recycled materials. The ECO-COOKING activity where they will experiment cooking using different techniques and prepare interesting “scrap” food recipes. They will compete in BOARD GAMES, play music in the ECO-MUSIC workshop, learn about renewable energy in FUN SCIENCE CLUB RE-ENERGY.
They will also enjoy ADVENTURE TIME (climbing wall, zipwire, water gymkhana and other surprises…) and show their survival skills in SURVIVAL EXPERIENCE, where they will learn how to light a campfire in a controlled setting, how to filter water to make it potable.
All these activities are led by teachers who are qualified in mountaineering and multi-adventure activities, with all the safety measures to guarantee an unforgettable experience.
Lastly, our “LEARNING EMOTIONS” workshop will help them to learn to empathize with others through corporative games, group psychology…
Our little ones will be fascinated by our STORYTELLING workshops, with an enormous range of GAMES & GIGGLES, where they will enjoy traditional games.
Our program for 2023 also features technology: the digital workshop entitled SPOT THE PLANET will involve working with audiovisual media.
