DONATE 10€

FOR THE RECONSTRUCTION

APPEAL TO DONATE 10€ FOR THE RECONSTRUCTION AND DECORATION OF THE NEW PREMISES OF THE CĒSIS NEW SCHOOL (Cēsu Jaunā skola)
10€ will help to paint 6m² of the walls.

10€ is enough to buy two brushes, a roller tray and a painting roller.

10€ is the price for a plywood panel (2000*500*18mm) to construct a shelf or a table.

10€ covers an hour or even more of a professional craftsman’s work (including all the taxes).

We can do a lot with every 10€. However, we will highly appreciate and will put any amount donated to its best use in order to build the New school!

YOUR support encourages and supports us to search for new paths in education already today!
Someone has to start doing things differently in order for schools to change. We are doing it already. And we are ready to take action and to attempt to create the learning process and the environment that is similar to progressive enterprises and co-working spaces.
We value the potential, talents and the individuality of the children. We see school as a place that provides support to each child to grow bigger, more daring and capable, better informed and able to recognise their progress on a daily basis.
In order to put this learning approach into practice, spacious premises in the need for repairs suit the best as it provides us with an opportunity to build the walls according to the chosen approach and our aims! We are still learning how to do this the best way. We are ready to share our knowledge during the process of reconstruction, during the time of learning and making mistakes.

THE IDEA of the SCHOOL

The idea of the ‘New School’ initially originated within a group of parents, who see the school as a place where learning is based on the real life and a place where children primarily are learning to learn, discover, understand, and research. Where the maths is necessary to understand the rhythm of the music or buy ice cream but Latvian grammar and rich vocabulary are important to communicate with peers and to tell, for instance, about nature explorations during a hike along the Gauja river. Where sports is not a competition but a personal struggle and development of bodily and mental strength. A school where the ideas arise from the unique collaboration model of ‘children– parents – educators’.

‘Cēsis New Primary School’ is a long-term project with an aim to provide children with free, high quality, up-to-date, and competitive education and skills that are applicable to daily life. The first study year of 2013/2014 is the kick-off year of the school.

RESPONSIBLE

Parent’s society ‘Family Education Centre ‘Cēsis’’ has been founded in December 2012, although it has been operating unofficially already since September 2012 as an informal group of activists. The aim of the group was to establish a pre-school and primary educational institution that provides access to an open, up-to-date and competitive education in Cēsis. The members of the society are 15 families from Cēsis and surroundings; furthermore, a number of supporters that are not members are also involved.

THE AIM

‘Cēsis New Primary School’ is a long-term project with an aim to provide children with free, high quality, up-to-date, and competitive education and skills that are applicable to daily life. The first study year of 2013/2014 is the kick-off year of the school.

The aim of the school is to provide the best education possible to the children:

-Summarizing experiences, researching and implementing the best educational approaches and integrating them into the teaching process;

-Creating an environment and situations that foster learning as well as obtaining the knowledge, skills and experience,

-Ensuring personal growth of the children and enabling their ability to use the knowledge obtained while growing up in a constantly changing world and environment.

The long-term aim of the ‘Cēsis New Primary School’ is to motivate the society to be more active in demanding education that is up-to-date, high quality, accessible to everyone and primarily aimed at the needs of the children. To foster the involvement of parents and, in tight collaboration with children and educators, improve the offer of educational institutions and the quality of education.

TARGET GROUP

Families with children living in Cēsis municipality, who not only wish their children to be able to access up-to-date and high quality pre-school and primary education but also are ready to collaborate actively in order to ensure it.
