CZECH IMPORTANT DAYS: 

 

8th March


International Women's Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political. It is an occasion for looking back on past struggles and accomplishments, and more importantly, for looking ahead to the untapped potential and opportunities that await future generations of women.

 

28th March


Teachers' Day is a special day for the appreciation of teachers. It is the birthday of Jan Amos Komenský (John Amos Comenius). Czech students nominate the teachers whose approach most motivates and inspires them to the competition Zlatý Ámos (Golden Amos). J.A.Komenský was a Czech speaking Moravian philosopher, pedagogue and theologian. He is considered the father of modern education. Komenský was the innovator who first introduced pictorial textbooks, written in native language instead of Latin, applied effective teaching based on the natural gradual growth from simple to more comprehensive concepts, supported lifelong learning and development of logical thinking by moving from dull memorization, presented and supported the idea of equal opportunity for impoverished children, opened doors to education for women, made instruction universal and practical.
