Students are the center
of the educational process at Ostrovok Primary School.
The personality and interests of each child are the most important here.
We believe that cultivating a love of education and self-improvement, encouraging intellectual curiosity, creative thinking, and artistic traits are the key to a successful life.
It is important for each child to know what they are doing and why.
It is important for each tiny victory to be a result of personal discovery.
We believe that this is the only way to ensure that children have the most important traits – the ability to set goals independently and work on self-development throughout their lives. Understand why – set a goal – work hard – achieve Teachers are the driving force.
Our teachers guide, while the students move forward. Teachers are not ahead, they are nearby. Active learning is an independent search for answers to questions that the students ask. Each student goes along their own unique path in the process of learning, and the teacher's task is to be a steady support on this path.
Our teachers do not dictate rules but rather make every effort to get students to create these rules themselves. Only this way can the rules be memorised and become useful.
This is possible only with appropriate qualifications. Our teachers are trained based on Cambridge Professional Development Qualifications (Cambridge PDQs) in the following spheres:
