    Kauno Milikoniu progimnazija

    The school is progymnasium (general education (primary and Ist grade secondary )) with the students (6 – 15 years). There are 946 students and 72 staff. It is located almost in the outskirts of Kaunas, that is why we have a lot of students from suburbs. KAUNAS IS UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE AND EUROPEAN CAPITAL OF CULTURAL 2022

    These children have difficulties in making friends, communicating with children from the town as there are differences in their attitude towards many social issues. Furthermore, there is quite high rate of unemployment, so many parents of our students are made to work in other countries, such as the UK, Ireland, Spain, Norway, etc. Due to the fact, many children are left under care of their grandparents. Those students feel the lack of social communication, care and love. In addition, there are some pupils with special needs. We have also children from different ethnic groups, and who aslo are returned with their parents from migration from Italy, Spain, Ireland, Great Britain. It is difficult for them to be envolved into the learning process of difference in educational systems and language barriers. The Progymnasium provides primary and first level secondary education (years 1-8). Its aim is to ensure opportunities for every student to seek its personal progress and better learning results in a constantly learning and improving school. It also wants students to gain life – long learning competences while paying attention to civil, social and cultural development of the personality in a safe and comfortable place. The progymnasium uses a lot of innovative technologies. We believe that through modern methods of teaching, new technology and art we can provide all values, such as honesty, respect, trust, tolerance etc, in a more delightful and effective way.

    Every year we cooperate with the municipality and local communities where knowledge and values are transferred from hand to hand. Our school curriculum promotes values, appreciate differences between people and gender equality, responsibility (to oneself and others, to learning, obligations). It talks about the need for cooperation between people, because human can’t live alone. We teach pupils to think critically, to integrate them as much as possible into social life and to give them strategies and procedures that enable collaboration and resolving conflicts peacefully. We also carry out many humanitarian activities at our school. The project will give a chance to learn about the methods, curriculum and educational systems of other countries related to cultur programs, environmental education, learning by doing and to share good practices. We hope with this project to forge sustainable links with similar and different schools and cultures to help participants to appreciate the importance of cultural awareness and competence. We would like to create a connection between other countries and our students as some of our students do not have a chance to meet children from other countries.
