Primary School

Welcome to ENKA Primary School! Our school is a learning environment where students discover themselves and the world around them by asking questions, making and testing hypotheses, experimenting possibilities, taking risks, learning from mistakes, and learning with and from each other. It is a place students love to be! Through offering a strong academic program and a rich co-curricular provision, it provides students with opportunities and experiences to grow intellectually, socially, physically, and emotionally. It provides learning environments and resources that promote curiosity and discovery.

We offer the Ministry of Education’s national curriculum within the PYP (Primary Years Program) framework of the International Baccalaureate (IB). In our school, which was fully authorized to offer the PYP in 2005, planning, teaching and assessment are informed by the school mission and learning principles as well as the PYP philosophy and pedagogy.

One of biggest strengths of our school is our co-curricular program. Offering a range of different arts, science and sports activities, the program aims to help students discover their talents, learn to lead a balanced and healthy lifestyle, as well as acquire effective self-management skills.

In our school we encourage our students to take the responsibility for their own learning, to accept responsibility for their actions, to protect nature and to serve the community. We expect them to initiate meaningful and responsible actions as a result of their learning. Participation in community service helps students develop skills such cooperation, problem solving, conflict resolution, and creative and critical thinking.

In ENKA Primary school, learning has no time, place or age limits, and knows no boundaries!
