Children's Day in the After-School Center

Every year the first day of June belongs to children and that was exactly the way it was at Duhovka! Together with children we celebrated their common "birthday" by organising a sports afternoon in the after-school center. At the start children were treated to a refreshing ice cream and after that everyone could make their own team and create a really special name. The teams were taking notes of clue words figured out when completing tasks at each checkpoint. There were 7 checkpoints and a garden map with indicated points was also of great help in better orientation. Every team solved the riddle using clue words, even though within different time limits. The enjoyment of playing was such a driving force that some of the teams were not happy with going through activities only once. The afternoon was joyful and, as usual, children’s imagination kept surprising us :-)


School in Nature - Sumava National Park (Lower Elementary)

Last week our Lower Elementary students were Rangers for a week at the beaitiful Sumava National Park.
We hiked to the beautiful Cerne and Certovo lakes while appreciating the beauty of our surrounding and climbing  hills for better views.  Children learned from a Park Ranger presentation, how to take care of nature and from a volunteer fire fighter they learn about fire safety and first responce.
In the middle of it all we found time to relax and even swim!

School in Nature for Upper Elementary: This year in the region of grape-vine and apricots

This year, upper elementary students spent the week of May 19 in Velké Pavlovice in the South-Moravian region. Their program was organized by the eco-center Trkmanka. The surroundings and sunny weather were perfect for long walks. Children not only walked on educational trails but also visited the watchtower Slunečná, a wine cellar, and tasted apple juice. Moreover, they caught and observed aquatic animals in the area of a local pond and stream Trkmanka. We recommend a trip to this region to anyone, cyclists especially!

How was our TALENT SHOW?

We believe everyone has a hidden treasure. We help them to discover and make the most of their riches." This is one of our values, and we seek to uphold this value not only through our own approach, but also through our school events. Talent in all its forms can also be one of these treasures. Children were given an opportunity to show us their talents, diligence or just excitement about some kind of skill at the Talent Show. The show took place at our school on 3 May with the participation and great support of parents and friends. Children sang, danced, or played the piano, the flute or the guitar. The music resounded through the school, and the applause from the audience for every participant could hardly be missed on the afternoon of that day. Every child received a tulip with a souvenir card for their courage. We are already looking forward to next year’s event and we would very much like to thank the children for such an enjoyable afternoon!

Join us at Festival of Architecture - OPEN HOUSE, May 13th-14th

We invite you to the third annual Open House Festival Prague 2017

Our third annual Open House Prague Festival will open up more than 40 buildings and structures of architectural interest, thus inviting the general public to visit buildings in Prague that are not usually accessible over the weekend of 13 and 14 May. The public will have a unique opportunity to visit and explore the interiors of houses, around which they walk every day.

Duhovka enters into the project with its elementary school for the second year and with its high school for the first time this year.

Duhovka High School, Saturday, 13 May

The building itself, in which our high school is located, was built in the 1920s. The aim of its reconstruction was to express its original character but also to meet educational needs. The school should be a place where seriousness and elegance of the architecture of the First Republic meet with open and dynamic present-day Montessori education.  

Architects: Tomáš Bém, Vratislav Lhota a Mečislav Petrů

Duhovka Elementary, Saturday, 13 May

The reconstruction of the building aimed to create an environment that corresponds with children's natural developmental needs. Each classroom has its own colour scheme based on the concept of our school. The purpose of the reconstruction was to create a spatially varied environment with a pleasant atmosphere supporting creative activities where children feel happy.

Architects: Ateliér SAD

We celebrated Earth Day in the Garden with parents

We encourage healthy eating and this includes an edible school garden as well. Our garden has not been overflowing with vegetable beds yet but we are sure that by taking small steps we will soon succeed, e.g. with help of the event organised on the occasion of the celebration of Earth Day.

On 21 April our school organised "Earth Day with Parents and Grandparents in the Garden." We prepared activities such as composting correctly, planting favourite herbs, or tidying our school garden sensitively and thoughtfully. Together with Really Healthy School, which gave impetus to this event, we believe that working in the garden can be great fun for all generations and an opportunity to share learning and practicing many different skills. After the work, which was hard but also fun, a reward was prepared in the form of a healthy snack and hot tea! The event was great not only thanks to the sun, which kept everyone in good spirits, but mainly thanks to all enthusiasts who joined us. Thank you!
