Rotselaerlaan + Savoorke | Primary and the older children of Children's House

School Outing

Primary ‘Rotselaerlaan’ and the older children of Children's House ‘Savoorke’

Tuesday 23rd May

Time: during school hours

Mode of transport: school bus

Location: Domein Bokrijk, Bokrijklaan 1, 3600 Genk

Today, we are all living in the 21st century. We have a warm house with a roof made out of clay or asphalt shingles, concrete tiles or sometimes even metal. We have found a comfortable way of getting from point A to point B, we go to school (and what a school!) during the week days, and during the weekend we do activities with our friends and family.

But how did children live at the end of the 19th century? What did their school day look like? What did they do during the summer months? What did they eat for dinner? Where did they sleep? For one very special day, the Primary children will travel back in time, meeting many characters with their own stories. But parents, do not worry: at the end of the day the school bus will bring them back to 2023 – their minds full of interesting impressions from the past.

Welcome to our website
The International Montessori School offers a thoroughly prepared and beautiful learning environment, supporting the complete development of children and students from the ages of 1 to 18. A bilingual approach together with the Montessori Pedagogy and the International Baccalaureate Secondary Section (IB MYP and DP) prepares children and young adults for life.

We focus on all aspects of the personality and help children to gain trust in themselves in order to feel confident and empowered, both within their social group, and the world at large. This, together with balance in freedoms and logical boundaries and the guideline that “your freedom ends where someone else’s freedom begins” helps children to become responsible individuals who look after themselves, their environment, and others!

We hope you enjoy our website and find useful information on the details involved in assisting towards the development of a harmonious personality.
Personalised tours are available for prospective families to see the beautiful premises and green spaces, bilingual Montessori environments and/or the multilingual IB Secondary Section in action.
