Students of Savremena Gimnazija participated in the activities within the Intelligence Day

As in previous years, the professors of Savremena Gimnazija organised activities for students as part of Intelligence Day, which is organised by Mensa Serbia.

Namely, professors Milica Aleksić and Tamara Rajinac prepared a competition for students of first-grade classes attending the Combined programme. The students were expected to divide themselves into six teams, based on their knowledge of their abilities, within which they would solve a series of tasks and thus win points for their class. Some of the tasks also required the use of modern technologies (computers and iPads).

Achieving the goal with good organisation and teamwork

The idea of these competitions is to develop awareness among students that everyone is talented or good at something. The tasks required different types of talent (linguistic, verbal, musical, logical, spatial, detective, etc.) and thus motivated the students to achieve their goals with good organisation, division of roles and teamwork.

The students had a lot of fun, trained their brains, cooperated and helped each other in order to collect as many points as possible.

After adding up the points, the winners were announced – the students of class I-7.

You can also find this activity on the event map on the Intelligence Day website.

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
