Centre for Inclusive Education and Odeon Cinema Organize Friday Thematic Film Shows
Centre for Inclusive Education in partnership with Odeon Cinema organize two thematic film shows with discussion “The school is a big film”. Teachers from five schools within “One Scholl for All” programme, film artists, journalists and Centre’s friends participate in the film nights.

The attendees were plunged on February 26, 2016 into the atmosphere of contemporary Bulgarian school with the hit "XI A" of director Michaela Komitova. Special guests were Georgi Kostov, one of the film’s authors and producer Hristo Hristov.

After the show, the guest participated in a discussion. They asked questions, related to the choice of main film character and whether they feel like her, talked over the daily choices, which every one of  them should make. Participants unanimously supported film message that every child in school should be supported, valued and has the opportunity to develop its talent. Exactly these key elements are in the foundation of inclusive school.

The next film night will be on April 1, 2016 with the realistic production „№1“ of the Bulgarian National Television.

One School for All

One School for All is our most encompassing and wide-reaching cause, our raison d’etre. Our ultimate goal is comprehensive introduction and application of the principles of inclusive education.

Inclusive education is a process of changing the school environment based on respect and acceptance of other people. It implies wise management of school processes in a way which makes children feel supported to develop their capacity and to overcome hardships; which makes teachers feel encouraged and confident that they are able to cope with the growing challenges, while parents are able to assume their responsibility and role in partnership with schools.
