Our staff started preparing for the new school year in August: the newly arrived teachers received a multi-week orientation on Hungary, the Hungarian education system, co-teaching and the special methodology of the Bilingual Program. We pay close attention to a safe start to the school year: the Bilingual Program has a 90% vaccination coverage of native English-speaking teachers and staff, including returning and new teachers. Only staff members, who either had an immunity card or proved to be healthy in a test organized on behalf of the Bilingual Program, were able to take part in our year opening meeting. Everyone's test was negative.
All of them – including the returning teachers - were preparing together in planning sessions with their Hungarian co-teaching partners to welcome and work with the children!
We wish you a happy start to the school year!
