Members of Art Club had a special visit at the National Gallery of Kosovo. They were able to see two exhibitions that are currently being exhibited in the National Gallery. The pupils from different schools of Ferizaj, Kaçanik and Shtërpcë were curious and showed great interest in the Bauhaus Imaginista exhibition as they popped many questions regarding the artwork.
This activity is part of the “Alumni Engagement through Extracurricular School Activities” project.
KUSA thanks the National Gallery of Kosovo for its willingness to contribute on this activity.
Since the approval of the “Law on the environmentally
endangered zone of Obiliq and its surroundings”, it has been little discussed
about the process of the implementation of the law.
In order for the inhabitants of Obiliq to know the rights
this law brings to them, this small grant launched an informatory webpage called
ligjiperobiliqin.info and organized round table panel discussion.
Through the establishment of the open-data webpage, the local communities and CSO can get informed in detail about all the aspects of the policies under this law and are provided with visual and simplified information on the 12 Articles deriving from the Law of Obiliq. This platform now can be used as a window where you can read or share your opinions, complain or ask any question related to the Law of Obiliq.
A round table panel discussion was also organized, where were present local decision-makers and representatives of institutions responsible for the implementation to talk about the challenges of the implementation of the articles that come out of this law.
The preparations for the Prishtina School Club Fair have
Today KUSA met with the management staff and professors of all Primary Schools in Prishtina, who have shown keen interest in finding out more about “Prishtina School Clubs.” Through this meeting, KUSA representatives shared their experience and strategy with established or re-activated school clubs in four schools in Prishtina, Ferizaj, Shterpce and Kacanik. Moreover, KUSA also had the chance to share its plan for the fair including the clubs, as well as their organizational structure.
All schools agreed to allow KUSA to act as a consultant throughout the establishment or re-activation of the following clubs: Art, Debate, Technology and Outdoor Activities Club.
The Directorate of Education in the Municipality of Prishtina has come to a decision for Primary Schools to spend 30% of their curriculum to extracurricular school activities. Therefore, with KUSA’s experience in Primary School Clubs from the project “Alumni Engagement through Extracurricular School Activities,” the Directorate and KUSA have reached an agreement to collaborate for the implementation of this project.
With this in mind, KUSA will organize a fair where the club’s organizational structure will have the chance to meet KUSA Alumni and different companies operating in Kosovo. The organizational structure is made up of 20-25 students, i.e. the club coordinator who is a full time professor at the school, the president and the vice president who are selected from the students. KUSA alumni will share their experience and expertise, whereas, the companies will share their work as well as the expertise that their company needs and values. Moreover, the clubs that will be established or re-activated are Art, Outdoor Activities, Technology and Debate Club. Therefore, through this fair, the schools will have a chance to develop a curricula for the club which they will follow throughout the school year.
The fair will be organized in the following weeks and KUSA’s help for the schools to develop these clubs will continue throughout the year.
