IOANID Secondary School proposes parenting programmes and individual sessions of counselling to the parents and the students, respectively. The individual sessions are especially designed for the children who have emotional difficulties, for those who have a hard time relating to others or coping with the school environment, or for those who want to take part in activities that develop creativity or in games that help them improve their relationships.
- FOREIGN LANGUAGES
Foreign languages help people make new friends, enjoy the time spent in new environments, to deepen their knowledge on new cultures. For this reason, all those who wish to expand their culture and to understand other peoples’ mentalities, can do so by enrolling in our foreign languages clubs. The classes can be individual or in groups, and the children will be able to study French, German, Spanish or Chinese.
The children who study the piano develop good mental health, the ability to focus and learn , the esthetic sensibility and musical expression.
The lessons are meant for all those who want to master the art of playing such a fine instrument, younger or older alike.
This club enables us to turn back in time. We begin with the idea of customization of space, the symbols and the honesty of gesture. The contemporary period should provide us with the letter, the pigment and the tools we work with. The result – graffiti (projects).
