Every primary school is different

Every primary school is different

We’re in schools and we’re trying to tell young people about how it’s possible to change communities, showing them bits of history. We’re trying to see whether they understand that when they grow up, they’ll be able to accomplish great things – just look at how many important and wise people have come from poor backgrounds! And each of those schools is different – not just in age. But also by how the adults there treat the children.

And at Základná škola Ivana Branislava Zocha (who, by the way, was the person who wrote the first Slovak high school physics textbook) in Revúca, we talked to the students mainly about how to connect the community with art. No wonder. When they go to school, they pass by the cultural center, and right now there are stands in front of it with the stories of sixteen brave women – those who survived the lack of freedom. We talked about all the things women had to go through in the last centuries. And how hard it was to overcome the disbelief that they couldn’t do anything. And the children listened, they asked. And – most importantly – they found the answers themselves.

These workshops for schools were implemented as part of the “Women in The Community – from charity to equal work in communities” project, which is supported by the Domestic and Gender-Based Violence Programme financed by the Norwegian Financial Mechanism 2014 – 2021 and the state budget of the Slovak Republic.
