Open Gate welcomed 103 primary school pupils and 302 grammar school students to its 18th school year
Petra Dobešová, previously the managing director of OPEN GATE - gymnázium a základní škola, s.r.o., has been named the Head of Open Gate School. The school has a stable body of teaching staff, just under a third of whom are male and a fifth of whom are native speakers of languages other than Czech.
What a fun week we’ve had, that’s fun F-U-N fun, here at Open Gate. On Thursday we had our annual School Spelling Bee in the theatre where 20 of the Primary School’s best spellers competed to secure a spot in the District Spelling Bee at Sunny Canadian International School.
Today in our classes, we had our first advent morning oases. I always feel that advent is a special time of the year. Whether you are religious or not, it still represents an important time, a time of togetherness, goodwill and sharing.
What is an Open Gate teacher like? Above all, inspiring. The international teaching staff consists of kind, patient professionals with diverse academic and teaching experience. They bring non-traditional perspectives to teaching and are open to lifelong learning.
Enrolment and Transfers
Any preschool-aged child can be enrolled in the Open Gate primary school. Even yours. Find out how to enrol your child and the relevant deadlines. There is the possibility to transfer to a higher primary school year, but only if a place in the required year is available.
We give thought to the development of each child’s talent and have a football pitch, a music rehearsal studio, a library and a swimming pool. On school days, a range of extracurricular activities are available.
Primary School Activity Groups
We offer over thirty different activity groups. Sports, culture, languages, and handicrafts. This means there is something for everyone. Take a look at this year’s opportunities.
At our school cooking is varied, healthy, and tasty. Food is usually prepared using seasonal raw ingredients. Meat and vegetables are also supplied by local farmers. We also cater for students with special dietary requirements.
Open Gate Primary School Anthem
Every school year has its own patron – a mineral that accompanies the students throughout the year. The first year is yellow topaz, for second-year students we have chosen red jasper, the third-year students can be recognised by green emerald, fourth-year students are recognised by blue aquamarine, and fifth-year students have violet amethyst.
