Primary School

 

We know that knowledge learned with the heart and tested by the hand lives a long life, whereas crammed information doesn‘t stay in mind for long. The longevity and continuity of knowledge are important elements of quality education, which Saulės Gojus strives to ensure. 

 

The UN identifies 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be achieved by 2030. Goal no. 4 is Quality Education, which aims to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and to promote lifelong learning.

 

Continuity of quality education from an early age has been important to Saulės Gojus. After a playful and homely time in the kindergarten, children start attending the primary school, the time when they begin to acquire learning tools and to discover their strengths. Combining their wisdom and abilities, primary school teachers search for the best way to help the children prepare for the challenges of an ever-changing present and an unpredictable future.

Secondary School (Grades 5-7)

 

Living is learning. We do not teach a child – we are there to help him learn, because we want him to grow up into a person who feels an unquenchable desire to live great.

 

When starting to learn at the secondary school, the child begins to explore his or her identity. We are convinced that it is a duty of a good school to help him find his flow state that allows him to experience the joy of self-expression and success.

 

Our secondary school is a smooth continuation of our primary school where the same education principles apply. Our goal is to turn the traditional teacher-centred instruction, focusing on the teacher‘s role as a "commander", into self-directed learning where the student takes initiative in identifying his learning needs and setting his learning goals.

 

In grades 5 to 7, the educational process is organised and the curriculum is implemented on the basis of three modes of learning: classroom learning, seminars, and independent work. Learning success is achieved by combining the student‘s self-monitoring and self-control with his constant monitoring and counseling by his mentor.

Foreign Languages

 

In our primary school, English is intensively used in order to make it the student‘s second working language when they reach the secondary school level. Every Wednesday, English becomes the sole ruler in the school premises („English Wednesday“), it is used extensively in communication with teachers inside and outside the classroom, during the Morning Circles and the Knowledge Circles, in the Learning Labs, and even at the parties. Even if you bump into an English teacher from Saulės Gojus in the city, he or she will only speak English to you! 

 

In the secondary school, English becomes the first foreign and second working language with 5 lessons per week. Part of the classes takes place in English as CLIL lessons.

 

In grade 5, students also start learning a second foreign language.
