The educational work of the museum is connected with the school and school material.
For this reason, the HNHM:
It stimulates the possibilities offered by the establishment of the Youth Group. Thus, children’s skills and inclinations are utilized in parallel with the preparation of training material.
Information about school visits:
- Maintains constant contact with teachers through the Directorates for Primary and Secondary Education (of the island and in general) and the Environmental Education Directorates. However it does not just focus on a written text-communication, but
rather organized a series of meetings / tours at regular intervals for teachers (for example at the beginning of each school year or on the occasion of a new activity). In this way teachers get informed and discover the possibilities offered by
the museum. Having been informed promptly, they can utilize the HNHM throughout the year as an educational tool. Thus, the quality and quantity of available educational materials for students and teachers improves significantly.
- It ensures that educational programs and possibly some of the events, follow, where possible, the syllabus of school subjects.
- Examine the possibility of:
Organizing competitions with topics about e.g. the natural environment, or exhibitions in order to promote school projects etc.
- Providing opportunities to utilize the various spaces as classrooms where regular school subjects can be taught - instead of school.
