Back to school
On Monday, 11th May 2020 we started the school lessons again in our Elementa.
And suddenly everything changed...
The corona situation has significantly changed our everyday school and family life especially since 16th March 2020. As a school and as parents, our main challenge resolved around: DISTANCE LEARNING.
Our children have been taught using electronic media ever since 20 March 2020, and emergency care has been set up for children of parents in system-relevant professions.
Thanks to the cooperation and mutual support of teachers and supervisiors, parents and of course the eager-to-learn, curious and creative school children in particular, distance learning has been successful. Of course we all miss our Elementa Family, since personal contact cannot be replaced by video conferences, emails or telephone calls. However, everyone learns new ways of learning and thinking through this extraordinary situation, to become creative, to dare new things, to collaborate more closely, and in doing so, we all make personal experiences that teaches us valuable lessons that go beyond a regular school curriculum.
The credo of Elementa "Strengthen strengths. Learn to learn." never seems to apply better than today.
Impressions: distance learning
We are simply amazed by the creative and touching submissions of our school children that they made in order to encourage each other and the teachers throughout the distance learning period. These papers and submitted works are often not directly related to the school material - and this is of fundamental importance to us, in accordance with our educational mission to pursue curiosity and lifelong learning, social interaction, imagination and lateral thinking, lived creativity and the discovery of hidden talents.
Have fun and best wishes!
We look forward to Easter!
All sorts of colourful things around Easter and spring.
