Each student class is assigned a homeroom or head teacher, from primary school to high school collectives.
Through the Homeroom Action Plan, head teachers and educational mentors closely accompany students on their path to development. To this end, numerous individual and collective actions are carried out in order for children to acquire personal and social skills that will help them grow, socialize, identify career options, etc.
The main areas of action available to the head teacher are:
- Educational support, counseling and career guidance, depending on the age group and the interests / requests of the students. Activities also include topics related to road safety education, legal education and training, rule compliance, civil protection, earthquake, drug and bullying awareness, the safe use of the Internet, the organization of leisure or social activities. These are established following consultation with the students and based on the age and needs of the collective.
- Educational support and counseling activities for parents (annual and other frequent meetings with families). Frequent contact and communication with families is a crucial aspect of our educational project. By maintaining open communication with parents, each student is closely monitored while their development, strengths and specific needs are identified and analyzed.
- Hermann Oberth International German School is dedicated to the prevention of bullying and constantly updates measures and policies meant to prevent and intervene rapidly in such instances;
- The identification of students' needs, as well as communication with parents in order to get them involved in some of our personalized care programs.
Educational guidance should be understood as a process of counseling or support which is integrated into educational practice and offered to students so they can achieve goals, commit to problem solving, grow and become members of the community.
The 3 areas we are targeting are:
1. School guidance: the aim is to advise students to act responsibly on their learning path, to adjust learning techniques, to collaborate with parents and teachers in order to achieve greater efficiency and quality in the teaching-learning process. Advising students on "learning how to learn" is a constant concern to us. We often take this skill for granted when, in truth, it is a process of learning, orientation, experimentation and reflection, based on receiving adequate support.
2. Career guidance: the aim is to support students in the gradual development of their skills and interests, in understanding the requirements of the labor market and in making decisions about future studies and professions. Discovering one's passion is the greatest achievement in the life of any student (and that of any teaching team).
3. Personal guidance: the goal is to assist students in their personal development, to help them get to know themselves so as to later develop strategies for solving diverse issues pertaining to everyday life. We offer individual care to students with emotional problems or special educational needs.
