In addition to the main curriculum, the school offers a great variety of after classes optional activities, such as: sport, theatre, science, dance, first aid, astronomy and an amateur radio club. The school policy has always been to stimulate scientific interests, both through school subjects, extracurricular activities and the participation in scientific competitions in the field of Geography, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. We carry out many educational projects, the biggest is "Mathematical and Natural Science as the Key to the Understanding of the World". This project includes additional classes in Physics, Mathematics, Biology and Chemistry. Many of our students after graduation start their higher education in science and develop a professional career in academic or scientific research.

ARISS is an international educational outreach program partnering the participating space agencies, NASA, Russian Space Agency, ESA, CNES, JAXA, and CSA, with the AMSAT and IARU organizations from participating countries.

 

ARISS offers an opportunity for students to experience the excitement of Amateur Radio by talking directly with crewmembers on-board the International Space Station. Teachers, parents and communities see, first hand, how Amateur Radio and crewmembers on ISS can energize youngsters' interest in science, technology, and learning. Further information on the ARISS program is available on the website http://www.ariss.org/ (graciously hosted by the Radio Amateurs of Canada).

 

Thank you & 73,
