PORG International School Back To School After Quarantine

we're back!

After three and a half months of home schooling, the primary school is open and full of life again!

The children arrived bright and early on Monday and started with a test. No need to be nervous though, this test just involved each pupil sticking a cotton bud up their noses and then putting it in their COVID test kit.

Once we made sure everyone had tested negative, we got straight back to learning. There has been far too much theory work since Christmas, so everyone has had a week of as much practical work as possible.

We are still not able to mix the whole school together, we have to go to lunch at separate times and we all have to self-test twice a week but we are back and this time we mean to stay!

PORG International School Association of British Schools Overseas Membership Certificate

AoBSO Membership

Following our successful inspection by COBIS last year, PORG International School is now a member of the Association of British Schools Overseas (AoBSO).

The mission of AoBSO is to share the best pedagogical practices established by the British Department for Education. In addition, membership helps British Schools Overseas to learn and improve based on the experiences of other member schools.

In order to become an accredited British School Overseas, our school has been inspected by COBIS (the Council of British International Schools) which is an organisation formally recognised by the Department for Education (DfE) and the Office for Standards in Education (OfSTED).

Membership of AoBSO is an assurance to parents and prospective parents that our school meets the same standards required of a school in Britain and that we are recognised by the British Government as a British Overseas School.

A copy of our inspection report is available to all parents and prospective parents, detailing the quality of education provided by PORG International School and its compatibility with independent schools in England.

PORG International School welcomes pupils from around the world

Back to school!

Here we are, back at school!

All of us at PORG International School are delighted to welcome our pupils, new and old, from near and far. This year we are hosting students from as far away as America, India, South Korea and Britain.

After a lovely hot summer holiday here in Ostrava, we are rested and ready to go again. We met the challenges of the last school year, despite quarantine. This school year is going to be our best yet. If you're not here already, it's not too late to join us!

PORG International School COBIS Compliance certification

COBIS Accreditation

Great news for the growth and development of our school!

Following an inspection by the Council Of British International Schools (COBIS), PORG International School is now a Compliance member.

For our parents and children, it means that we have shown that we meet the highest standards of international and British best practice in providing children with the maximum levels of support in their development at primary school.

The concept at the heart of COBIS compliance is continuous improvement in how member schools provide education. The high standards required are maintained by regular inspections and communication with COBIS. Our staff can take advantage of the training and feedback available, which enables us to learn lessons from British International School across the world.

Once again, the report noted the spirit, enthusiasm and team spirit of our students and staff as well as the strong leadership of our Principle and Headteacher. All of us here at PORG International School look forward to continuing our evolution with the help and support of COBIS.

Dylan Wiliam workshop on Formative Assessment

On August 28th this year, teachers from PORG International School had the fantastic opportunity of attending a workshop held in Prague by Dr. Dylan Wiliam, one of the world's foremost pedagogic scientists.

The workshop was extremely interactive, focusing on practical demonstrations of the effectiveness of formative assessment techniques. Dr. Wiliam presented summaries of the research which led to the development of the techniques, detailed in his work with Paul Black 'Inside the Black Box: Raising Standards Through Classroom Assessment'

The results of the research presented at the workshop demonstrated that many widespread teaching techniques do not directly help pupils to learn but rather just collect statistics. With the use of formative assessment, teachers can not only check whether children understand or not but close the gap between those who understand and those who do not. The techniques are based on the study of how memory is divided between short term and long term, how memories are formed and retrieved and how to exploit the natural functions of the brain to help develop a strong memory of lessons given in class.

Although the workshop was mentally very tiring, with a lot to be learned very quickly, Dr. Wiliam's use of formative assessment throughout the day proved to be an extremely effective demonstration of its value.  Now that the new school year has started, the benefits of this workshop will soon be felt in our classrooms!

Entrance exam

Let us invite your children to our entrance exam to PORG International School. It takes place on April 8th at 9 am at PORG. Just bring a good mood and the rest will be ready.
