Scriere si vorbire corecta in limba romana  

The workshop aims to equip the participants with the necessary knowledge in order to write and speak correctly in Romanian. Delving into grammar rules and making them more accessible and logical to young learners, the workshop combines fun and useful activities in order to allow for practicing a very important skill – flawless communication in students’ mother tongue.

Every single session will focus on one area of communication in Romanian, such as the use of two or more “i” at the end of a word. Understanding the logic behind something is the first step in doing it right. For example, we might look into things such as when we write “copii” and when we write “copiii” or why we use a “-“ between “s” and “au” while why we don’t use it when the word “sau” has the meaning “or”.
Everything in this workshop, whether we are talking about materials, quizzes, exercises, videos or other stuff will be fun, useful and clear. Bringing grammar to life and making it fun is the ultimate goal of the workshop, hoping that every single participant will acquire super-hero communication skills in Romanian by the end of it.

Tennis

The tennis workshop will take place at Complex Tei between 16.30-17.30. Children will reach the tennis courts via bus; they will be picked up directly by parents/guardians from Complex Tei between 17.30-17.45. Tennis is a great sport to start at any age, but truly the best time to start tennis is when you’re young. There are so many amazing developmental benefits to children playing tennis.

Service Leadership Club

Our goal is to help the local community at Verita through positive action, while developing important leadership skills along the way. Our members have a call to lead through service, the courage to get involved, and a strong desire to grow as individuals.
Service leadership is a paradigm that has been adopted by many successful companies throughout the pandemic.

Leaders that are wired to give back to their communities through service and personal involvement are more effective and their organizations are more connected.

We will explore the relationship between the two seemingly opposed terms of serving and leading, find concrete opportunities to help others, and learn about mastering the art of leading oneself. Students will reflect on their own attitudes and develop the habits of successful leaders, while building relationships with their peers and getting connected with the community at Verita and beyond.
