Letter for parents:
We are enjoying our time here in Nymburk. Swimming, hot tub bath, talking and getting to know friends, story time in the evenings have all made this trip wonderful. Yesterday, we got to see the first mens basketball game of the season-Nymburk versus Ostrava. We took a walk right before dinner to a near-by park and the children practiced some of their agility skills by using the zip line, climbing a rope wall, walking on a moving bridge and playing on the merry-go-round. All day long they looked forward to yesterday’s Disco party.We shared with them the saying that Christopher Robin said to Winnie the Pooh , ”You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

Peace education is a very important topic in a montessori classroom. In our classes, we teach this topic systematically. Therefore, we were happy to have our whole-school meeting on September 21st, when The International Peace Day is celebrated across the whole world. The children had chance to share with each other, what the peace means for them and how to promote it. At the end, we sang the song "Light a candle for Peace", which is being sung in all the montessori schools that day.
Duhovka Upper Elementary classes just came back from Kaprálův Mlýn. They had a chance to be in a beautiful environment, even though, they got into some occasional rain, it was a lot of fun. The students visited some interesting places nearby, played a lot of games and did many other activities. Also, they experienced a whole day trip, played environmental games and saw adventurous caves and rocks.
Thanks to parents and children who came to the picnic this Friday. You created an amazing environment where we could see a plenty of happy faces. The children were enthusiastically watching the fairytale from Theater studio "Studna" and ate all the goodies that you prepared for them.
Pictures from the photographer will soon be sent to your emails.
The afternoon was very nice!
Although the weather is a little cooler for September, the children are enjoying afternoons in the garden. They can use a multi-purpose field of they are welcome to join sport, art and other activities with the druzina team. Look at the happy faces!
We start on Monday, 4 September at 8:30 am. The school opens at 7:45 am.
The end of the first school day is between 12:30 pm – 12:45 pm (including lunch). The earliest possible time for picking up of your children is about 30 minutes after the above time because your children will for the first time go to the after-school center for a short introduction, which will be held immediately after school lessons.
The after-school center is open only until 3 pm during the first day. Since the second day it is open until 6 pm, but on Friday 8 September again only until 3 pm because from 3 pm to 5 pm you are welcome to join us at the Family Picnic event in our school garden.

We enjoyed last day in school, but at the end of the day, we found out some really unpleasant thing has happend. The Green Class tortoise has disappeared from her coop that is situated in the garden. We don't know if someone played with her and forgot to put her back or maybe even took her home. We have been trying to find her, but as you may know, it is not easy, since the garden is so large. We would like to ask for help. If you have some information, please let us know!
Thank you so much for your cooperation.
