As a part of our program we organize several courses and trainings every schoolyear. They include ice-skating, swimming course and skiing. These activities develop physical abilities of kids as well as help them build positive attitude towards self-improvement and sports. They are a great opportunity to strengthen relationships among classmates and enrich our program with great fun. Each course takes one week and the cost is included in tuition fee.

This course has two forms. One of them is daily skiing course, which takes place near Bratislava. Kids are picked up by a bus every morning and transported to the location of training, where they are divided into groups based on their skiing abilities. Each group has its skiing instructors. Goal of this course is to teach safety while skiing, how to get on/off a chairlift, ski downhill, control the direction and speed of skiing.
Second alternative is ski trip. The cost of this trip is not included in our tuition fee. Children go on a five-day skiing trip to a resort that has good skiing conditions. Kids are accommodated in a hotel with full pension. (5 meals a day). This is an opportunity for those parents who are interested in volunteering in our school program. Parents that take part in PTO can come with us as “volunteer assistant teachers” and help with facilitating and preparing program of the skiing trip.

School in Nature
27.11.2017 – 1.12.2017
14.5.2018 – 18.5.2018
Our students have an opportunity to take part in two “school in nature” trips during the schoolyear. First-fall term is done for the two oldest age groups (pre-primary and primary reception). Goal of this trip is to take our student into nature and strengthen their immunity during the time when flu season starts. Kids and their Teachers leave for 5 days. Activities in “school in nature” are based on our curriculum. During this time our main focus is on exploring natural sciences (mostly animal and plant biology, ecology and geography). Kids are able to conduct experiments, explore, and discover surrounded by nature.
Kids that do not take part in this trip are able to stay in school and are placed in similar age group program.
