Seminars have been realized on the dates mentioned in the title of this text with the parents of the potential students – participants in the project “Integrated bilingual secondary school”, as a first generation.
The goal of this seminar was for all parents (Macedonians and Albanians) who have given a support and are part of the project, to meet for the first time and to also discuss openly through a dialogue about all problems that parents are facing with and are closely related to the implementation of the project.
One day has been reserved for the lectures of Prof. Steinar Bryn on the topic: “Dialogue – a tool for peaceful conflict resolution” and its use in the everyday life. The lectures have been backed up with positive examples from the use of dialogue in the region.
Mentioning that this concept of education is a model and solution for successful functioning of the educational system of Republic of Macedonia (especially in multiethnic environments), Prof. Bryn has expressed his personal support of the start of the first generation of students in the secondary integrated bilingual school.
The second day has been dedicated to a presentation of the formal teaching in the secondary school “Mosa Pijade” (electrical and technical oriented teaching – computer techniques and automatics) by two Assistant Directors.
Through the presentations from Anica Onosimoska and Teuta Ramadani (representatives of the EOR Team of NDC Skopje), the present parents have been introduced more thoroughly with the program for informal teaching – the extracurricular activities, as well as with the program for cooperation with the parents.
The seminars have been realized in a pleasant working ambiance.
