In this regard we get involved with various projects and introduce modern alternative educational models in our wish the students to feel comfortable in the dormitory and accept it as their “second home”. In the year 1998 expert educators decided to join the Healthy Schools Project, expecting that new ways of working should contribute to higher quality of life in the dormitory. The boarding school project team organized numerous workshops and other activities; furthermore, non-govermental organizations were invited to participate as well and their lectures also improved the quality of our work.
