Welcoming the new Nova Boris Trajkovski scholars

4/18/2019

This year, for the 15th year in a row, we had the pleasure of bestowing full scholarship awards to three students. The process started early January, with our team visiting over 20 schools in Skopje, live feed on a TV station and several publications on social media. The result? Over 240 students who entered the first round of testing and 20 students who successfully managed to enter the second round of testing. After a fun day filled with creative, team activities, the NOVA-Boris Trajkovski committee managed to choose three students that represent characteristics that we find in a true NOVA student: leadership skills, team player, motivator. On April 10th at a private ceremony, accompanied by NOVA leadership and representative of the Boris Trajkovski foundation, our three new scholarship students received their certificates and thus helped us in successfully closing another cycle of this eminent award. We wish nothing but the best of luck and success to our new scholars but also to all of the other brave children that took part and were with us in this important journey.

Community service program, in action.

4/9/2019

Dear NOVA, over the weekend our community service program was rather busy. On Saturday, with more than 15 students we visited the center for clothes donations of the "Red Cross". For 4 hours the students separated the clothes that people have donated and made sure that they were organized and placed to a good use. On Sunday, more than 10 students took part of the Youth Fest organized by the Youth Council of the US Embassy. To sum up their general experience one of our students wrote "We liked that it was something different from what we have seen and we learned that there are a lot of different ways to help the people around you by volunteering. We also met young entrepreneurs whose stories inspired us. We hope to see something as nice next year" Check out the photo gallery from the event here

4/2/2019

Nova students are now working on their Red Cross PHV (Promotion of Human Values) projects. One of the groups in our school is helping a family that lost its house in a fire. The family lives near Skopje, and they lost a lot in the fire. While their new house is under construction, our students are trying to helped them rebuild their family life by providing them with clothes, school supplies, home appliances, and some furniture.  We already had the first delivery on Friday. Our team also played one football match with the boys. Today the students brought the kids and their mom in the Zoo. They spend few hours with the family and in the same time they celebrated the birthday of one of the children. Both the children and our students had a wonderful time. This year for the 5th time we are a part of the National Program Red Cross in Action - Promotion of Human Values RCA-PHV. This program makes great impact in the community for more than 20 years. It engages young individuals from different backgrounds to work together in order to help the community and to make valuable difference in someone's life.
