The ELS Pro scholaris discussions are held with local entrepreneurs, politicians and writers where students can develop their sense of initiative and entrepreneurship, including know-how, motivation, creativity, innovation and courage, as well as the ability to plan and perform tasks in order to achieve established papers. On February 13, 2018, our students and teachers together with the directors of other ZSK schools could participate in a discussion with Mr. Branislav Gröhling, who presented his suggestions for changes in education at Slovak schools. On May 7th, our visit was honored by Ing. Peter Hajduček – founder of footshop. We spent a pleasant afternoon together as we approached our business and introduced the marketing strategies that make his company among the top leaders in selling sneakers. Footshop is not just a shoe store, but is also involved in various projects designed for young people. As the Private SOŠ Pro scholaris is still planning its short-term student exchange in Slovakia, it is obvious that the number of extra-curricular organizations participating in the ELS project will increase. We plan to cooperate with several banks and financial managers, as well as financial advisers, who will provide a professional page of the project and also help with the next ELS day.
On Tuesday 5, 2018 there was held a meeting of the students of Private Vocational School PRO SCHOLARIS with the president of Žilina self-governing region, Ing. Erika Jurinová.
At the beginning of the meeting, one of the teachers introduced the school, its study programmes, after-school activities and also the European projects Erasmus+ in which this school has been participating successfully for several years.
Later on, Ing. Erika Jurinová was talking about her political career in Slovakia and about her function in the regional policy. She explained the main goals of the development of Žilina self-governing region in the following years.
The president talked about basic life skills which are necessary for carrying out her function. Also, she reminded the students of the importance of education in many fields.
At the end of the meeting she was trying to answer the students´ questions.
We would like to thank Ing. Erika Jurinová for visiting our school and having a very interesting discussion with us. We wish her to achieve all her goals while helping to fulfill the needs of the people in the region of Žilina.
