Schule am Voßbarg,
The “Schule am Voßbarg” is a special school for children with learning difficulties. There are pupils at the age from seven to sixteen (sometimes seventeen), the vast majority of them is socially deprived. Almost every child who attends the “Schule am Voßbarg”, was not able to achieve the cognitive or social demands in his or her previous school. We try to give our pupils the chance to develop self-confidence, to find out that they can learn, that they have available their own potential.
The “Schule am Voßbarg” is an all-day school which is not yet common in Germany or Lower Saxony, pupils from the pupils company “Iss was” prepare the lunch. Pupils from class five to ten are at school at two afternoons per week, depending what kind of activity they choose. Pupils can also acquire the Certificate of Secondary Education, which more than fifty percent realized in the past.
Learning also includes things like cooking, repairing bikes, carpentry, New Technologies , old regional language, school band, HipHop-Dance, guitar and keyboard lesson, horse riding, bee keeping and other practical applications.
