Co o nás nevíte ANGLICKY
me introduce the Primary school Táborská. It had been founded a 100 years ago
and it is located in Prague – the capital of the Czech republic, near the
centre, in a quiet part of the city, called Nusle.
Nowadays there are about 30 teachers and 480 pupils.
However the school building is an old one, it is equipped very well. The most
popular classrooms are computer rooms with free access for the pupils. We have
our own school theatre in the attic where (among others) the school balls take
place every year for the school graduates and their parents.
The Táborská Primary is one of „the pilot schools“, forming the new curriculum
for the basic educational level. This is a long-termed project of the Ministry
of Education, which modifies a very traditional system Czech school system to
the 21st century needs and demands.
We also cooperate with the Pedagogic Faculties in Prague and Pardubice and as
their partner we are allowed to use the attribute „Faculty“ in the school
The school is very famous for a great number of after-school activities. Our
pupils, as well as other children, can choose from more than 50 clubs – from
pottery workshops and Art lessons to sports and games clubs.
Our strategy is to become a place, where people – not just our pupils – like
to learn, to stay, to meet. We organize various postgraduate and refresher
courses and seminars for teachers, as well as the summer and winter camps for
children. There are also the all-day programmes, opened for the public ( e.g.
The Vietnamese day, the Childrens‘day).
Of course, we are involved in various international projects as a Socrates
school project (with Germany, Ireland and Polland). As we believe that any
kind of international cooperation has a strong motivation effect for ELT, we
are trying to get still more contacts with the primary schools from all over
the European Union.
