School hours

School hours are from 8.15 - 16.30  from Monday to Friday. There are two afternoons a week that children can go home at 1.00p.m. For the school year 2010/2011 years 1, 2 and 3 have this option on Wednesday and Friday while years 4 and 5 have Tuesday and Friday.

The school calendar is the same as all state schools in Emilia Romagna.

House system

To help our children integrate, not only in their classes but throughout the whole school, creating a sense of family and belonging, we have introduced a House System. We have three Houses - Jupiter, Mars and Saturn. Each House is made up of children from all the five classes. Brothers and sisters are automatically placed in thesame House. A House Captain is elected by the members of the House and his/her role is to coordinate all activities done in the House. House points are given throughout the school year to individual children for many things - achievements in all areas, exemplary behaviour, effort. These points go to the communal benefit of the House. Moreover, throughout the year there are group activities assigned  - sports, music, art work - which also receive points for Merit. At the end of the year, the House with most points is awarded the School House prize and trophy.  

School uniform

 A school uniform is adopted and should be worn at all times. It can be ordered and bought directly from school.

I pads in the classroom

 Our years 4 and 5 have been using Ipads in the classroom on a daily basis since October of this year. We are finding it an exciting way to include Information Technology in our everyday school lives.
