POŠ Nova (Nova Private Elementary school) was started in 2001. It follows the teaching program approved by the Ministry of Science and Education, with additional PE and English classes. We offer the possibility of learning French, German or Italian as a second foreign language, starting from the 1st grade.
The school does not have a school uniform policy.
Children stay at school from 8 AM to 4 PM and during that time they have classes, do their homework and study. Three meals are daily prepared by the school kitchen staff in our school kitchen and served in the school canteen, taking into account the healthy eating standards. All the children’s books and supplies (notebooks, pencil cases etc.) are kept at school and there is no additional homework required, except reading.
Our teachers have a major experience in working with non-Croatian speaking students and we adjust our programs and teaching methods to students who come from foreign countries by enabling them to learn and take exams in English, as well as in any of the previously mentioned foreign languages. The overall educational approach is individualized, which contributes to a stress-free and pleasant learning environment.
Apart from the regular curriculum, the students can choose among the numerous extra-curricular activities which are incorporated in school hours (dance, swimming, chess, singing, biomimicry, to name a few).
Every year our school organizes 3-4 field trips. One-day trips are mostly organized at the beginning and at the end of the school year. The 5-day skiing trip usually takes place in February, whereas the two-day field trip takes place in spring and is organized in Zagreb where the children traditionally attend annual concerts held at the Vatroslav Lisinski concert hall, organized by the Jeunesses Musicales Croatia.
