To give young people chances and open perspectives for them – these are the aims of our job-oriented education.
From the time on when children enter our school at the age of ten they get to know their strengths and potentials which they extend year by year. They are also dealing with their origin and so get to know an important part of their identity.
In the lessons the students get a lot of information about various jobs and so they have the chance to find proper ways of further education or job careers that consider their talents and abilities.
On the 7th and 8th grade the students work on projects that enable them to make experiences in different vocational groups. Practical work combines school with work-life. We are cooperating with the economic cabinet of Styria and so our students have the chance to step into job life when they can work in the vocational school of Graz-St. Peter. With the help of experts they can try out activities, that e.g. a painter has to do.
„Health is not everything but without health everything is nothing” is the basis for our health-education. In a yearly one-week-project our students work on topics concerning physical and psychic health as well as on topics concerning how to stay healthy.
This builds up a consciousness that makes health a main point of everyday school life and teachers as well as students consider it to be important and something valuable.
Healthy brunch, “bookworm breakfast”, an apple a day, moving breaks, healthy breakfast every Wednesday and healthy nutrition are just some of our pieces of health education.
As students from various countries from all over the world subscribe at our school, it doesn’t only have European, but even international flair. They enrich our daily school-life with their knowledge and their cultures. They learn how to integrate themselves and build up a new life in a new environment.
In order to be successful they have special trainings in German that enable them to follow the lessons as soon as possible.
Students with German as their mother tongue are motivated to learn foreign languages and so we offer Spanish, French and English.
Projects that support mutual understanding and learning from one another are effective to solidarity and building up identity.
Afternoon care at our school supports both: pupils and parents. Experts in teaching and coaching are attending to the students.
After communal lunch the students start to do their school work with the help of specially trained teachers.
After that they can enjoy an attractive offer of freetime-activities – they can do indoor or outdoor sports, they can do creative work or they can play games together or take part in competitions.
For us the cooperation of the teachers and the experts of afternoon care is very important to guarantee the best support for the students.
