Description of school
The construction of G. Bersani school dates back to 1978 and it is home of the scholastic administrative division n.7 of Forli from the 1978/1979.
The classes are currently 25, divided in 10 full-time and 15 at normal time, 23 of these are equipped with interactive whiteboard.
Pupils are in total 596, including 26 disabled and 93 foreigners. The in-service teachers are 59. There is also a Committee of Parents who works actively to support all activities of the school.
The Coriano neighborhood where the school is located, is a link between the industrial part of town and its historic center. The school is situated in a residential neighbourhood in development and crossed by important roads. The migratory flows of the latest years brought more heterogeneity among pupils. Difficult situations have increased, besides there is a strong presence of students with disabilities in some cases even serious, due to the presence (unique in the territory) of specific equipment.
The school has a laboratory of CERAMIC with oven, MUSIC classroom where activities of music therapy take place, COMPUTER classroom, a LIBRARY and GYM.
Each year the main projects for all pupils at the school are:
– the reading days;
– the singing evenings in collaboration with the Maderna Orchestra;
– sports games.
In addition, pupils attending the 3rd year participate in drama workshops, in the 4th year art /ceramics and for classes of the 5th year linguistic laboratories with CLIL.
