Projects and Studies
Curricular Focus Week
All students, from Early Childhood Education to Secondary Education, participate in study weeks focusing on topics related to specific curriculum content. For these projects, the students up to the 3rd Grade stay on the school premises, while the remaining students travel to different locations.
Week of Economics
The Week of Economics is sponsored by the Swiss foundation Ernst-Schmidheiny (www.esst.ch). The goal is for the students to immerse themselves in the world of an executive with the help of Swiss professionals and the WIWAG program, developed at the University of St. Gallen. Students establish businesses, develop business plans and strategies, develop visual communication and share the management of the various areas among themselves: General Management, Human Resources, Administration of Materials, Production and Marketing. Every day counts as a fiscal year. During the theory lessons, they receive information about economics so they can lead the company successfully and beat other players. The Week ends with a presentation in a foreign language of the annual report of the companies during the simulation of a General Meeting.
