We are pleased to inform you that our school started mental arithmetics classes last year whose methods of teaching are considered the most effective and unique all over the world.
Using it children are capable of doing arithmetic tasks very quickly without using a calculator. However, this is not the main purpose. What is important is the result which shows the skills that the children gain such as logic, photographic memory, concentration, analytical thinking, imagination, attention span, confidence and success in their studies.
All the classes are developed according to detailed materials in which every lesson is scheduled to the last minute. Nely, our instructor, is a creative person who is doing her best so that the lessons are entertaining using music and physical exercises.
The result from this tuition is development of the two spheres of the brain which work together when making decisions in life.This leads to generating new ideas which could be very effective in different spheres and situations. The course is with duration of 2,5- 3 divided into 10 levels. The students have two classes once a week.
Archery for children
“Classic” school is organizing an attractive archery game for its students on 21.10.2019!
Why practising archery is so useful to children’s health and education?
First of all, archery is beneficial to children’s physical, emotional and psychological health.
What is more, it is one of the sports with therapeutical influence – it has a positive effect on children’s confidence , safety, independence and concern for others.These are some of the advantages of the sport. Archery is recommended by specialists due to the fact that it contributes to the good coordination between our arms and back. Besides, it leads to relaxation and peace of mind, improves the control over our posture and ability to concentrate.
Children improve their coordination, calmness and self-control with suitable training. They become better and better with the time which makes archery one of the most desirable sports as it contributes to one’s personal growth and physical strength and is suitable for every age.
In addition, archery is a sport which helps children adapt to a group, as well as motivates them to work in dynamic surroundings so that they could easily overcome their shyness and thus be more active.
Last but not least, sports lay the foundations of some habits and norms which can be positively applied in different social spheres. We believe sports as well as sports competitions develop values which form every person’s spirit and character and are essential especially when it comes to young people who later on become adults and citizens.
Our school has a lasting strategy for providing a healthy environment as well as children’s habits as a key to their harmonious development. After implementing a balanced nutrition program also offering appropriate and environmentally friendly menu in our school canteen; conducting annual health nutrition lectures by nutritionists and increased number of classes for physical activity, this year we added a new technology – precise and multi-stage water filtration at school and provided 99.97% of all ultra-fine dust cleaning the classroom and corridors for particles, harmful odors, dangerous allergens, pollen, spores, viruses and bacteria as the air is saturated with millions of health anions. When the child is healthy, success is guaranteed!
