This is a personal development programme comprised of different levels where students complete activities and challenges to demonstrate their abilities to work as part of a team.
Participating in the European Youth Parliament allows pupils to develop a thorough knowledge of the European Union, an understanding of how decisions are made in the European Parliament and the knowledge required to form their own opinions and to discuss issues that affect Europe in a critical and constructive way.
The EYP sessions give pupils the chance to demonstrate their linguistic skills in English and their public speaking abilities. They also use teamwork and research skills, and have a chance to improve their confidence and self-assurance when defending a motion. It is an excellent addition to their CV when applying to international universities.
The workshop fosters team working, bringing students together in collaborative learning to achieve a common goal: to control the hardware (micro:bits, transistors, electric motors, buzzers, LED displays amongst other components) with their previous knowledge of software (Blockly and Python programming language)
The school organises educational campaigns with experience-based activities in association with some of these special days, with the aim of raising students’ awareness of the importance of human values in their lives.
Some of the activities take place throughout the year are: World Book Day. International Music Day, Internet Safety Day, International Smile Day International Day for Sport and Peace, National Science Day, Freedom of Expression Day, etc.
On these trips organised by the school, pupils develop different abilities, work together in a new environment and take on new challenges; but most of all, they learn to overcome any fears or uncertainties through these activities.
These trips are an incredible opportunity to improve personal skills such as independent learning, self-management, communication, teamwork, problem-solving and leadership qualities.
One of the most important tasks that the school undertakes is not only to guarantee the academic level of its pupils, but also to provide them with a broad curriculum that offers them ways to develop spiritually, morally, socially and culturally.
This artistic initiative allows our Secondary students to demonstrate their talents and English language skills. In addition, it allows both students and adults to work together as a team.
Participating in such an enriching academic activity reinforces the students’ self-confidence, improves their communication skills and enhances their language skills. It also fosters creativity and develops empathy, emotional intelligence, responsibility and commitment in the student actors. Dramatic art is an incredibly fun activity that allows our pupils to form new bonds of friendship.
