PTA Educational Evening for HS parents

As part of the many activities planned for the school year, the PTA has organized the first Educational Evening for parents, that took place Wednesday October 21st, dedicated to sharing perspectives on Third Culture Individuals. The workshop was organized and conducted by our school Psychology teacher Valentina Trpkoska assisted by our HS Psychologist Ivana Marinchek.
A brief presentation provoked a warm and thoughtful discussion on the topic of Third Culture Individuals that focused on improving the established practices in school and family settings. Because, as an international community of learners, we seek to understand trends in a globalized world that specifically pertain to our students and their families. Those members of the NOVA community who fall into the category of Third-Culture Individuals are integrally linked to NOVA's mission celebrate individual and cultural differences. Due to the inherent multiplicity of their personal history, which often spans multiple countries and cultures over many years, they greatly enrich our school community. However, Third-Culture Individuals also face very specific issues in new environments, which is why NOVA stands ready to recognize and celebrate the individual as we strive to accommodate the needs of our students and their families.
