Vision of Our School
WHAT WILL THE PAVEL TIGRID SECONDARY GRAMMAR SCHOOL BE LIKE?
PREPARED BY THE SCHOOL DIRECTOR ING. MONIKA KOCHÁŇOVÁ AS A FOLLOW-UP DOCUMENT TO THE EUROPEAN SCHOOL DEVELOPMENT PLAN AND THE STRATEGY OF THE EDUCATIONAL POLICY OF THE CZECH REPUBLIC UNTIL 2030+
Our school is called the Pavel Tigrid Language Grammar School. The school wants to remain true to this name and will continue to focus on language teaching in the future. As before, up to one-third of the curriculum will be devoted to language teaching. The school will guarantee that its graduates will be able to speak two to three foreign languages at a very high level. The school will become a centre for the promotion of French language teaching in the Moravian-Silesian region. In order to enable graduates to successfully apply to universities with a non-language focus, the school will have sufficient conditions for quality teaching of science or social science subjects and will offer compulsory and optional seminars to deepen the curriculum. The school will offer half-time lessons not only in language subjects, but also some lessons in science or social science subjects. For the time being, the school will offer pupils non-traditional subjects integrating several disciplines, such as Czech language, English language and biology.
We are part of the European Union and therefore the main goal of the grammar school is to prepare graduates not only for our regional or national labour market, but also for their promotion anywhere in Europe. The school cooperates and will cooperate with schools and institutions abroad in order to gain new experiences and knowledge in these organizations and to strengthen the awareness of the international dimension of today's world among students and teachers. In the future, the Gymnasium will continue its existing activities and further develop and strengthen them according to the interest of the students, teachers and other school staff so that their competences are continuously increased. At the same time, the school will support the activities of the pupil parliament and thus develop in pupils greater independence, a responsible attitude and other competences necessary especially for life in a democratic society. A more competent teacher will educate and prepare a more competent graduate, and a highly ompetent graduate will be more employable in the job market.
The Secondary Grammar School will therefore not only be an educational institute for pupils aged 13-19, but also a centre for lifelong learning and a community centre. The school is located in the middle of an urban development and feels the need to open up to its immediate surroundings, whether it is the inhabitants of Poruba from the neighbourhood, parents or friends of our pupils or the wider public. We will offer, for example, language courses, computer courses for the elderly, lectures on various topics, talks with a psychologist, a reading or art club, etc. We will offer the public theatre performances in foreign languages that are taught here. We will continue to rent out the gymnasium and the new playground. Our staff are already participating in various European projects (e.g. Erasmus+ programme) which enable them to make trips abroad to language schools, primary or secondary schools or other educational institutions. Here they gather experience from the work of these institutions as community centres and confirm hat a school functioning as such a centre is very beneficial for its surroundings, staff, pupils, their parents and others.
All these activities (whether educational - provided by the school or leisure - provided by the community centre) are accessible to pupils or fellow citizens with disabilities thanks to the wheelchair access and the lift in the building.
Diligent work on the above points will ensure that the school will be a valid member of the local community and that the maximum number of students will approach the ideal profile of a graduate of our high school, which, according to the school's educational programme "Many Languages. One common language." One achieves a very high level of linguistic competence in at least two foreign languages, also thanks to direct contact with native speakers and residence in a foreign language environment, will find employment in jobs requiring above-average language skills, obtain a general education forming the required basis for successful studies at all types of universities in the humanities, natural sciences, technical and artistic fields, not only in the Czech Republic but also abroad, can communicate in their mother tongue and in a foreign language - can express their feelings and opinions and present themselves and their work appropriately, know their strengths and weaknesses and know how to work with them, is a free and independent personality, can cooperate, think critically and solve difficult tasks in a creative way
