27.09.2017 - Visit from Frankfurt
A group of 20 Christian and Muslim students from the surrounding area of the Jesuit University in Frankfurt - St. Georgen visited us for three days. In their efforts to understand better the spiritual sources of Christianity and Islam, we were able to offer support with our good contacts and create thus an interesting program.
We were able to meet with the Abbot of the Orthodox Monastery of Deçani, with the executive leader of the Union of Dervish Orders of Kosovo, with the representative of the Jewish community in Kosovo, the Director of Diakonie Mitrovica and the leading Imam of Prizren. The group continued their excursion to Tirana after collecting memorable impressions.
27.09.2017 - A ticket to Croatia
Blerona Dakaj from classroom 8c is the winner of this year reading contest of the German Pupils Association. In an exciting final stage, according to the unanimous assessment of the jury, she managed to come on top against two schoolmates, after reading the previously unknown text in German language in a very impressive way. In November, she will be representing the Loyola school and Kosovo at the South-East-European final of the ZfA reading contest in Zadar/Croatia.
We sincerely congratulate and wish to her all the best for the next round!
26.09.2017 - Finally school again
One year of good preparation for a successful and motivated school visit was unfortunately not enough, it required a lot of additional negotiations and emphatic conversations, until, to our great satisfaction, all the children from Loyola-Tranzit, who wanted to return to school, or even to register for the first time in the school, were accepted.
The determination of Moritz Kuhlmann SJ towards the municipal education office/ DKA paid off. With great attention and additional support for homework, we want to stabilize and promote these first steps back to school.
We experienced particular support from the young staff from Tranzit, voluntary Loyola pupils and our volunteers, who came to Kosovo through Jesuit volunteers or through the Jesuits' future workshop.
21.09.2017 - Involuntary break
Already in the second week of school, a nasty virus had sneaked in the boarding school and school premises. Since more and more sick patients were reported in each morning, we decided to close the boarding school on Thursday afternoon and send everyone to an additional free weekend. In this way, we attempted to interrupt the mutual contamination in the multi-bed room and disinfect it thoroughly .
However, the school continued work undisturbed. From the very beginning, we closely cooperated with the public authorities, which based on laboratory analyzes have confirmed to us so far, that we can not be blamed of any hygienic or sanitary failures in the kitchen and boarding school. In addition, the high quality of our own drinking water was confirmed again.
14.09.2017 - After KFOR?
What will happen with the large compound in the middle of Prizren, which is currently used by KFOR as a field camp? This question was discussed by Reinhard Robbe, former Federal Commissioner for the German Bundestag, and currently the Special Representative of the German Federal Government on the issue of further utilization of the KFOR compound, together with representatives of the GIZ, and the director P. Bödefeld. Our commitment for the establishment of a dual vocational education and training for the profile of mechatronic technician, in the scope of a larger "training park" was perceived by the German side as an issue particularly worth of supporting.
11.09.2017 - Practice semester
As a student of social work and community education, Tobias Meyer is spending a semester of practical experience with us. Because he has a lot of experience in experiential pedagogy, with his support during two class teacher lessons in the school garden, we were able to communicate new experiences of community life and cooperation, in a bit of unusual and playful way- where they all had a lot of fun.
07.09.2017 - Scholarship Committee
Finance is also part of a successful school year. The committee, responsible for financial facilitation, met to decide on the most recent applications. We will allocate this year more than € 50,000 as debt relieve fund. This is slightly less than in the previous year, but the economic situation and the outstanding refinancing forces us also to further savings. All the more, we would like to thank all our friends and supporters for their generous support, which enables us to proceed as intended.
06.09.2017 - Bringing closer the new first-graders
In order to reduce the anxiety of children and parents for the first day at school, we invited them one day earlier: children, to visit the school building and to play with their new comrades, and the parents, to a presentation of the main concerns of our elementary school and the possibility to raise open questions.
04.09.2017 - First day at school
Initially everything seem to be the same, when the school community gathered in the amphitheater. But shortly after this program, the changes were significantly, as the sixth, seventh and eighth grades had to look for their classrooms in the former elementary school building. Further changes and news provided an exciting but brief first day at school.
The first day of school in the new school building of the elementary school, was marked by a small ceremony, for which all the children gathered in the courtyard. Accompanied by a joint song, the four new flags were hoisted for the first time, before all children were able to storm the new, beautifully restored school building.
Just in time for the first day at school, we received a farewell gift from the former German ambassador in Pristina, Angelika Viets. She posted a comprehensive article with her name in one of the more reputable daily Kosovo newspapers, calling on the new government to finally solve the refinancing problem of the teachers' salaries and the growing debt towards the Loyola grammar school. A background report, along with an interview with the director P. Bödefeld appeared on the next day, making the topic well prepared, as the new German ambassador and the new Kosovar Minister of Education will shortly meet.
