About School

  • School's values and education is based on positive education methods. We seek not only to improve children's knowledge and skills, but also develop children emotional well being, social responsibility and health.

  • Education programmes are adapted to strengthen the self-confidence and authentic behaviour. We assist children to develop their strengths, foster the ability to regain their powers and recognise the rhythm of their personal development. Special attention is devoted to emotional intelligence education, a social and emotional education programme "Dramblys" (An Elephant) is embedded at school.

  • We follow principles of healthy lifestyle and diet. The school is established on the shores of the ocean, have outside classes and inside yard to play, thus the children most of the day spends outside

  • We believe, that we succeed when school's management are united around the idea that the well being of children is as important as academic achievements, which fostered by inviting the whole school's community to support the idea.

  • PERMA model (Dr. Seligman, 2011) - five elements of goodness and used in all schools of positive education - is used to engage school's administration, teachers and parents:

Positive Emotion: kindness, gratitude, hope, contentment are all positive emotions that contribute to the “pleasant life.”

Engagement: engagement is about being totally absorbed (in the flow) by a present task where time and self- consciousness seem to cease. 

Relationships: strong positive relationships; we are “social beings” who need to connect with one another.

Meaning: act local - think global -  life comes from serving something that is bigger than self; altruism and philanthropy are good methods to establishing a meaningful life.

Achievement: having goals and meeting those goals, improves your well-being and allows you to flourish.
