Building bridges between EU schools to provide opportunities for our pupils of today and tomorrow.

This experience was the very first one for me since I have been a teacher in secondary education only for a couple of years. Even though I did learn about ICT tools and had the opportunity to improve [...]

Halloween (All Hallows' Eve) is a holiday celebrated each year on October 31, in most parts of the world. It is closely tied to the ancient Celtic harvest festivals and an observance on the following days dedicated to those who have passed. It is common among the young to go trick-or-treating, carving pumpkins as Jack-o-lanterns and playing creative games with spooky Halloween themes. This year the students of Avicenna High School participated in a Halloween-themed night at Avicenna on October 28th, as part of a whole night celebration and a feature-length Halloween film. Students arrived in Halloween costumes [...]

AIC is inviting its high school students for three upcoming cultural activities in the following week. As all the students of our language preparation class have recently arrived in Hungary, we are keen to introduce them the city, its transport, history and its main squares and buildings. So we decided to take them on a guided tour around the Heroes' Square and City Park next week. Both sites offer a great chance to understand the way Hungarians thought and behaved, partly by providing a historical overview, and partly showing the opportunities of future use of museums and winter-summer [...]
Avicenna high school students from grade 10 visited the Metropolitan Ervin Szabó Library this week. It has been not only a long-cherished goal of the Literature teachers but all of the others to show our teenage students sophisticated learning facilities in the heart of Budapest within an outstanding building, which used to be a Palace (Wenckheim Palace) owned by an aristocrat family in the XIX. century. The library itself started to operate in 1904. The richly ornamented iron gates from the street made us anticipate the magnificent interior of the mainly baroque building. Having loaded the lockers with [...]
