An educational week of Summer school by the program “New Horizons” has come to an end. More than 50 people from North Caucasus Republics set off home with new impressions and knowledge.
During the week in Dombai participants learnt a lot and got to know each other better. We decided to remind what it was like.
The trainers, who had prepared a unique educational program, came to the mountain village. They looked forward to meeting the participants.
The next day everyone was on the spot. Participants learnt about the program and worked in team. At the very beginning we were thinking about our fears and expectations. The trainers took into account all of them so the time was spent usefully.
Then we talked about the points of non-formal education. The trainings were outside among high mountains. No desks, no bells, no marks. Just friends, fresh air and personal development.
Also participants remembered important events in their life. First of all they answered themselves a question: “What events have changed me?” That way we got to know each other better.
After that we made molecules of self-identity. It was interesting and informative.
Also we worked in small groups.
For several hours our training room turned into a theatre. Discrimination and stereotypes were the themes of our forum-theatre. The participants were really creative so it was not only interesting but funny. Bravo to newborn actors.
On one of the days we learnt to be constructors. “Summer school” participants were divided into groups and together they built their dream-cities. Models were absolutely different. We could see everything like mountains, rivers, valleys, skyscrapers and small houses. By the way, have you ever thought about your dream-city? What is it like?
After that we discussed social problems and thought about their changing.
The next day the participants of “Start” met the participants of “Profi” and mentors.
At the end participants looked through the year calendar and discussed the work of on-line school. After the seminar the participants have a chance to do on-line course on “Project design”.
And do not forget that “New Horizons” is travelling. The participants of “Summer school” went sightseeing in Dombai.
Just enjoy the photos…
