Open House in the Klax School  January 12, 2019 | 11am–3pm

„Our wishes are presentiments of the abilities that lie in us”,

said Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. In the spirit of the German poet, Klax offers so-called clubs in the afternoons to supplement the compulsory curriculum, in which pupils can further develop their special interests and talents.

Findings from neurobiology confirm that consistently supporting talent and interests also has a positive effect on compulsory subjects. Clubs are therefore not intended for entertaining leisure activities, but for performance-orientated support activities which the students can choose themselves.

 

Comprehensive education

Children can discover and realise their talents and potential in the clubs, making them an indispensable addition to our school concept. The children acquire important skills through creative activities and practical challenges.

 

Varied range of activities

In order to do justice to the individual inclinations and talents of the children, there is a need for a wide range of options, ranging from clubs in the arts, physical exercise, to natural science courses in the sense of exploratory and research-based learning. The activities are reorganised each term, depending on the season and demand.

 

Choice

The pupils engage in at least two clubs per term. The bidding process and allocation to clubs takes place in the first week of term. The clubs are intended to promote lively, enjoyable learning and performance, but without being simply fun or non-committal recreational activities. That’s why performance and skills achievement are assessed in each club and identified and documented in the portfolio.
