The program „Scoala Altfel” at Sambata de sus
Through our trip we aimed at creating situations where, the youngest students of our school could demonstrate that they have developed personal organization and social skills. The goal was to develop attitudes such as independence, tolerance, trust and cooperation. Moreover, each participant had the opportunity to discover new skills, to demonstrate they are open-minded and brave.
The Learning Trip lasted for three days and included:
– a visit to the Cozia Monastery, founded by Mircea cel Batran;
– guided tour in the Old City Center of Sibiu (Piata Mare, Colivia Vrajitoarelor, Turnul Sfatului, Piata Mica, Podul Minciunilor, Piata Huet, Casa Calfelor);
– hiking in Cheile Oltetului;
– a visit to the Astra Outdoor Museum in Dumbrava Sibiului;

The trip was a great success, we achieved all our set goals, and the children were delighted to spend time with their peers, socialize outside the school and demonstrate that they can be independent.
