This school year, we are able to offer the following extra-curricular activities, especially for our international students – if there are sufficient applications. All the activities, except the choir and Lego Robotics (which will start in the second week of September), will start at the beginning of October.
Our students will also be able to join the activities run by the Slovenian Programme in the school. The list and more specific information will be provided on the bulletin boards and our webpage in September.
The tentative list for the 2023/24 school year is below.
Dear PYP community,
We are thrilled to introduce some exciting changes to our PYP Afternoon Programme (AP) that will enhance your child’s learning experience and provide them with a wide range of engaging activities. (Attachment 1)
Structured Timetable for Enhanced Learning:
We are pleased to inform you that the PYP Afternoon Programme now operates on its own structured timetable. (Attachment 2) This means that students will participate in specific activities during the afternoon and can be picked up only after the designated activity is completed. This arrangement is designed to provide a more focused and immersive experience for your child.
Stay and Thrive:
We strongly recommend that students make the most of the afternoon programme by staying for the entire duration. Immersing themselves in these activities will not only enrich their learning journey but also foster a sense of continuity and engagement. If a student will not be able to find an appealing activity, he/he will join Ms Marija Rus for some free time.
Package Offering with Added Value:
Starting this term, the PYP Afternoon Programme will be available as a comprehensive package. This approach ensures that your child can fully experience the benefits of the programme. Currently, only students who have applied for the afternoon programme can enrol in the activities. If you would like your child to participate in the AP, please inform the international office: firstname.lastname@example.org
Flexible Activity Exploration in September:
During the month of September, we will gradually introduce more activities to the programme. Students will have the opportunity to explore different activities on a weekly basis. If your child wishes to switch activities for the upcoming week, kindly inform the international office by Friday. This flexibility encourages your child to discover their interests and preferences.
Activity Selection Process:
To enrol your child in the PYP Afternoon Programme activities, please follow these steps:
1. Visit the provided link: https://forms.office.com/e/u8DQ9A3y5n
2. Choose the PYP section.
3. Carefully select the activities that align with your child’s interests and ensure there are no schedule conflicts.
By the end of September, we will finalize the activity offerings for the term. Starting from October, students will commit to their selected activities. A new opportunity to change activities will be provided at the beginning of the second term (1 February).
Limited Slots – Act Swiftly:
Please note that each activity has a limited number of slots available. Enrolment is on a first-come, first-served basis. We recommend securing your child’s spot as soon as possible to ensure they can participate in their preferred activities.
Student Departure Procedures:
Leaving the school premises remains unchanged, and we kindly request your cooperation in following these guidelines:
Parent Sign-Out via Tablet: When you come to pick up your child, please use the tablet at the entrance to enter your child’s student number. This helps us track student departures accurately. (Attachment 3)
Permanent Exit Ticket (PET): Students leaving the school premises at specified times (after lessons, after lunch, at 15.00, etc.) should use the Permanent Exit Ticket (PET) provided. This ensures a smooth departure process and helps us maintain security.
Student Pick-up by Older Sibling: If an older sibling (Grade 5 and up) is responsible for picking up a younger student, please inform the school in advance.
Scheduled Departure Time: If your child has a designated departure time, please either inform the AP teacher or the homeroom teacher via email or a paper note. This helps us ensure a seamless transition.
Important Information for Parents of Grade 3 and Above:
For parents of children in Grade 3 and above, we are introducing a new option for students to leave school unaccompanied. If you wish your child to leave school alone at a specific time, kindly follow these steps:
Request for Permanent Exit Ticket: Please send an email to the school office (Mrs. Maya) or preferably to your child’s homeroom teacher. In the email, specify the time slot you want your child to go home ALONE from school. You can choose the same time slot every day or specify differently for each day.
We believe that these procedures will streamline the departure process and ensure the safety and well-being of all our students.
We are enthusiastic about the enhanced learning experiences that the reformed PYP Afternoon Programme will provide for our students. Thank you for your continuous support and partnership in your child’s education journey.
If you have any questions or need further assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our international office.
The students who applied for the AP during the admission process for which parents have signed the contract, will start the activities on 2 September.
The remaining slots will be offered to the rest of the PYP students from October on.
