QUALITY IS IMPORTANT TO US
THAT’S WHAT MATTERS
- UNICA means unique. Every child is unique, equipped with individual gifts, abilities and character traits.
- Trusting that God is helping us, we accompany our students professionally. We encourage their enthusiasm by motivating them to use their joy of discovery and experimentation to always learn something new.
- The basis of our pedagogy is based on the Christian image of man and the fundamental values of love, patience, trust, joy, diligence and perseverance.
- In small classes and a learning culture characterised by mutual consideration, the child should learn to know and appreciate its own gifts and abilities.
THE INDIVIDUAL MATTERS
- Every child, regardless of religion or belief, is welcome here.
- We create space for individual learning.
- Our students are specifically encouraged in their strengths and supported in their weaknesses.
- Each child is personally accompanied by a learning coach or a class teacher.
SO THAT LEARNING SUCCEEDS
- We challenge our students to recognise their strengths and use them effectively.
- We enable self-directed learning.
- We support secondary school pupils in different levels of achievement with a high degree of flexibility when changing levels.
- We organise extracurricular learning experiences and special events such as excursions, camps, trips, project weeks, project days etc.
- We offer appropriate support to pupils with special needs according to our support concept.
- We value a trusting cooperation between parents and teachers.
GROWING INTO INDEPENDENCE
- Learning often requires perseverance. We teach our students that perseverance leads to learning success.
- We guide our students to independence and perseverance, e.g. in the learning studio, workshop lessons and weekly plan work.
- In our society, the media environment is increasingly taking on a value-shaping function. We help the pupils to deal with media in a meaningful way and to reflect on them critically.
BEING ON THE ROAD TOGETHER
- Building relationships, treating each other with respect and dealing with conflicts fairly are skills that we promote just as much as reading and writing.
- In our family-like school atmosphere, children feel safe and accepted. This allows them to fully develop their intellectual abilities.
- During breaks and lunch, there is free space for playing, talking and fellowship.
- Personality development (ability to work in a team, sense of responsibility, ability to deal with conflicts, …) is just as important to us as a good school education.
- We follow the cantonal curriculum. Official comparative tests show that the majority of our pupils’ performance is above average in the cantonal comparison.
- We support our students on their way to choosing a career and prepare them specifically for the transition to secondary schools.
- We offer lessons relevant to everyday life and prepare our pupils for the rights and responsibilities of adult life.
- Good manners are cultivated with us.
FAITH AND LIFE
- The examination of the Christian faith on a biblical basis permeates our everyday school life.
- Starting the day with God, celebrating Christian holidays, discovering the Bible, prayer, all this is part of our daily school life.
- We are regularly visited by people who talk about their profession and their experiences of faith and life.
