3.6. Extended and extra-curricular learning

Extra-curricular and out-of-school educational activities may either have a strong academic component or a more informal learning and development approach. These activities, when compatible and coherent with educational aims, may provide additional opportunities for young people to 'shine' and can increase motivation and a sense of belonging with the school that they might not otherwise have. Extra-curricular and out-of-school educational activities should be designed to complement curriculum delivery and to maximise learner participation and social inclusion. They may be developed in cooperation with parents, local organisations, services and NGOs and with the involvement of volunteers from the community.

Creating Peace

The aim of the project Creating Peace is to encourage and coach students with special educational needs to develop their transversal skills, especially interpersonal and intrapersonal skills and critical reading and thinking to help them to integrate more easily into local society.

During the first year, students learned about the Thirty Years´ War, how it influenced lives of people and how peace was reached. They looked for successful solutions of conflicts in their national history in general, discussed other possibilities and tried to draw inspiration from it for their lives. Students were coached to improve their critical reading and thinking. They expressed their impressions and feelings through comic, art object, song, rap, drama, etc.
