„How the Hellinistic period changed the ancient world” – interdisciplinary lesson combining philosophy, religion and civilisation

On Wednesday, 11 May, the class III-4 had an interdisciplinary lesson entitled How the Hellenic period changed the ancient world. The lesson was held in English and the guest at the lesson was Guillermo Alamo, a PE teacher from the Canary Islands. In the course of the lesson, the students and our guest could hear how the philosophical schools that appeared during the Hellenic period influenced everyday life of people of that time.
Stoicism and hedonism played an important role in the life of the members of high society in ancient Rome, but indirectly they influenced the rest of the society.

Ancient Greeks come alive through comics

Our students had a task to make ancient Greeks come alive through comics, meaning the students were required to design comics in which they would demonstrate the reactions of hedonists and stoics to some life situations. The interdisciplinary lesson was held by philosophy teacher Uroš Mihajlović and sociology teacher Jelena Spasojević.

I am extremely pleased and proud to be the parent of a Savremena student. During my first encounter with the school management, when I asked about my child’s potential enrolment, I saw how much love, enthusiasm and professionalism you put in your work. I was impressed by your approach, ideas and methods. I couldn’t believe something like this existed in our country! It doesn’t take long to realise that this is a school you would recommend to everyone. Creativity, modern technology, top-quality education, and most of all, the humaneness that can be seen throughout the school, make it truly different and worthy of its name – Savremena Gimnazija. With such an approach, the success of this school and, consequently, our children’s success, is unavoidable. Congratulations! Jelena Đorđević, Andrija’s mum
