Fourth year of Bosch-sponsored classes

Hatvan – The fourth Bosch class has started up in the Szent István Primary School: twenty-seven first-year children took over the classroom at an exciting Technology Day on 26 September. For school year 2016/2017, there are now a total of 92 students in classes supported by Robert Bosch Elektronika Kft. of Hatvan, and along with the new classroom, the school now has a refurbished language laboratory. Present at the opening ceremony were Richárd Horváth, Mayor of Hatvan, Márta Horváth Barczi, Director of the Hatvan Educational District of the Klebelsberg Institution Maintenance Centre, Volker Schilling, Commercial Plant Manager of Robert Bosch Elektronika Kft. of Hatvan, and Roger Seemeyer, Technical Plant Manager.

Nearly 10 million forints in Bosch sponsorship
Bosch in Hatvan has provided nearly 10 million forints towards the launch of the new school year. The classroom renovation cost 6 million, and on top of that was the cost of new equipment: furniture, fittings and an interactive board and projector. Through a collaboration between the Klebelsberg Institution Maintenance Centre and Robert Bosch Elektronika Kft., the school’s language laboratory has also been refurbished for the new school year: Bosch provided monitors and chairs worth a million forints to go with the new computers. Volker Schilling said, “Our collaboration with Hatvan Council, which has been in progress for several years and touches on many areas, proves that Robert Bosch Elektronika Kft. is present in the city on more than the economic level. It is an integral part of its cultural and educational life.”

Technology Day
The new facilities were handed over on a day infused with the wonders of science and technology. Bosch held a Technology Day for the students, who learned lots of interesting things through quizzes, handicraft and sport activities, and interactive games. Roger Seemeyer said, “On the Technology Day, both younger and older students built a robot with reusable materials and tried out innovative measuring devices and inventions. We hope this will spark children’s interest in scientific subjects and arouse their curiosity towards the technical sciences.”

The first Bosch class in the Szent István Primary School started three years ago, and twenty-three of the children entering the school this September have come from the Gesztenyéskert nursery, which is also supported by Bosch. Bosch also provides the opportunity for children at the school to learn German, swimming, horse-riding, music and dance and go on regular outings. It also provides supervision by teachers between 6 and 8 am and between 4 and 6 pm.
