New movement room for the inclusive school in Bad Nauheim
All children are different and have different needs, strengths, and weaknesses. It’s particularly important to encourage and support these differences on an individual level. Sophie Scholl School in Bad Nauheim does just that. The elementary school was founded over 10 years ago as a private initiative of a group of parents. Today, approximately 110 non-disabled children learn together with 25 disabled children in the 1st through 4th grades. The philosophy at the school focuses on tolerance instead of exclusion, and appreciation instead of discrimination – something that is put into practice every day.
However, the curriculum doesn’t only include reading, writing, and math. Movement also plays a vital role for the students. The school developed a special movement program for the construction of the new movement room which is specially tailored to the needs of the different children. The Regine Sixt Children’s Aid Foundation already provided financial support for the renovation of a pavilion in 2015. This made it all the more rewarding to be able to help once again several years later.
Thanks to the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation, the new movement hall was created, which meets the special requirements of an inclusive school and also provides movement opportunities for children with disabilities. The concept offers the possibility to integrate wheelchairs and other aids, so that all children can participate in the movement offer and inclusion can be lived holistically.
