A volunteer will assist teachers in the daily pedagogical process. The main activities, which we could offer for the volunteer, will be in assisting teachers in artistic education as our school focuses on students’ artistic development. Waldorf pedagogy does not content dry accumulation of knowledge, so our subjects (especially in younger grades, when a child senses related to the environment) wraps into artistic forms. Children learn drawing, playing music, listening to stories, cast in. School art and music lessons, drama lessons are no less important than other things. Senior school students are introduced to art and architectural history, going to art knowledge for the trip. Performing arts are very important – from the mini-Christmas performances of plays and ending with the chief drama, comedies and musicals. Also volunteers will accompany the students to the swimming pool, the hikes or excursions, help the teachers at the canteen during dinner break and etc. Taking into consideration volunteers’ motivation, skills and interests will develop daily activities for every volunteer personally.
