Eötvös Loránd Primary School

Our school is located in the town centre in a nice surroundings. It is a big building with 3 floors and a lot of classrooms. Each class has its own classroom. The first and the second classes are on the ground floor, the others are on the first and the second floor. 500 students attend this school. The classrooms are well-equipped, especially the computer room. We have a quite good gym and a big schoolyard.

This school is specialised in English. Children start learning English at a very early age, at the age of 6/7.They have 5 English lessons a week and they also learn Music, P.E. and Art in English. The second language is German.

In the afternoon everybody can take extra lessons, Mathematics or Chemistry, but if you prefer Hungarian language you can choose the ELISZ (Hungarian Literature and Theatre Group). This is the oldest group, it is 22 years old.

The school has got many traditions. The most famous is the Eötvös week. It is in November and this time many competitions are organised. The biggest is the Piros-Kék (Red and Blue competition). It is the most popular competition in the school. Every student takes part in it. There are two teams the red and the blue team. In the red team there are the children who go to class A and in the blue team there are the children who go to class B. We have to dress up in red and blue and we often make flags or wear coloured caps. We choose a team captain who leads us.

There is another famous tradition, the Carnival. It is in February. Every class learns different kinds of dances and the children wear fancy dresses. The graduating students, who are in year eight, dance traditional dances like waltz.

Other good traditions are the camps. Every winter a ski camp is organised. We travel to Austria and we ski all day. Every summer there is a bicycle camp. We visit very nice Hungarian places by bike. There is also a sport camp in Kemence where we have got trainings every day. Every two year the students travel abroad to practice the language they learn. There is a German trip to Austria or to Germany for the students who learn German. They go sightseeing, visit interesting museums and take part in German school lessons. The other trip is the English trip for the English speaking children. They usually go to England and visit London. In 2013 I participated in the English trip and it was brilliant. We stayed at English families. We visited many museums like the British Museum and we saw two famous English castles the Hampton Court and the Windsor Castle. I will never forget it.

I think every child likes this school very much.

Eotvos School

Our school is located in the centre of the town. We have a neighbour school; which is connected to ours by a canteen, and a few corridors. It is called Arany János Primary and Secondary School.

Our school has 3 floors, each one with about 10 classrooms. The gym is fully connected to the main building. The classrooms are well equipped, especially the computer room.

Currently we have about 500 students. Each class ha its own room, but from the 5th class, students learn in different rooms (such as Maths in 204, grammar in 208, etc.). These rooms usually enough for 25-30 students. Each class (from 1st to 8th) contains about 25 pupils. The young ones (1st and 2nd class) are on the ground floor.

The students can choose between German and English language in the 1st class and so they can start to learn it. The real language course starts in the 4th class, which means students have 5 lessons a week. A second language is available for the students from the 7th class. We always keep language camps, both in England an Austria.

The P.E. lessons also start in the 1st class. These lessons are good for both students physical and mental health. The well-equipped gym (with balls, ropes, shirts and rugs) provides a wide list of exercises for the pupils. Our sport camps are held in different countries, always with many ways to do some sport. The school’s main information bases are the library and the computer room. The library is always in silence, and it contains about 14,000 books. The computer room provides anything what a student need: web connection, fast and new computers with excellent performance. These rooms are only available with teachers.

All children are welcomed in our building!
