Grammar School | News
Open Gate starts its 16th year with 293 grammar school students and 99 pupils in the primary school’s junior years. This year, as every year, a significant number of grammar school students have scholarships from The Kellner Family Foundation set up by Mrs Renáta Kellnerová and Mr Petr Kellner.
It is a great pleasure now, at the end of the holiday, to be able to write the first of our traditional Friday reports from the Open Gate Grammar School.
Despite many challenges we have put together the 3rd and final edition of the OG Chronicle for this school year.
Even in the time of coronavirus, the OG Journalism Club still managed to publish the second edition of the Chronicle newspaper and the OGNotes and Krognika magazines.
Last week you received the standard Friday greetings from the director and an email with other important information from the managing director. Today we are returning to the traditional newsletter despite the non-traditional period of time.
For online learning we tested various platforms, we have chosen Microsoft Teams for both the Open Gate primary school and grammar school.
During the school year, you always receive the traditional Friday news from both the grammar school and the primary school at the end of the week. Today, however, let me address you in the name of the whole school.
Due to the circumstances, Open Gate has temporarily become a school where we do not meet with students and teachers in the classrooms, corridors and during lunch breaks.
OG does not give out any fundamental statements about Covid-19. You, with your own sound judgment should decide whether and to what extent you will take into account the recommendations of health specialists and government institutions designated for this purpose.
Open Gate was happy to welcome Ms. Subarna Gupta, motivational speaker and educator to our Senior Assembly on 10.2.
We were happy to welcome poet Paul Delaney all the way from the U.K. to our Juniour Assembly on 3. 2.
This letter is a bit shorter as a forerunner of the next, more comprehensive one, reporting on educational outcomes in the first half of the year.
