Project description

Te ofrecemos esta Plaza de Servicio Voluntariado Austria para participar en un pequeño pueblo. The “Vogelsangschule” is an initiative of some engaged parents who created an alternative school in september 2006 to allow their childen a self-determined learning considering their individual development. The pedagogic background relies on the experiences and studies of Maria Montessori, Maurcio and Rebeca Wild and Jean Piaget as well as new cerebral and neuro-biological studies. We want to offer the children the possibility to learn in their own rhythm in an age-mixed group from 6 to 15 years. Actually we have 10 pupils subdivided into two groups (Primaria I: 6 – approx. 9 years and Primaria II: approx. 9 – approx. 12 years. The following school year we will probably have two children in Sekundaria: approx. 12 – 15 years.) There are two teachers with education and experience in reformative pedagogic.

Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

After the school there will be a brief review (15-30min) and once a week a longer review with the whole team for talking about what happend the week before and preview fort he next days/week.
