Interview with Bloom Parent Deniza Helić
SUDDENLY, IT'S TIME FOR NEW BEGINNINGS. AND NEW BEGINNINGS ARE EXCITING, DO YOU AGREE?
They should be, after all the stress and the related logistics are sorted. Proper planning and perseverance against all odds is the key to successful transitions.
WE WILL MISS KIAN, LUN AND NOAH A LOT, BUT THEY WILL ALWAYS BE PART OF BLOOM. WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE MOST VALUABLE LESSON YOUR CHILDREN LEARNED AT BLOOM?
I do not see this separation as a farewell to Bloom. Rather, it might only be a one-year break. My children learned to be self-reliant and self-confident at Bloom. I am sure it will help them to adjust to any educational environment they may join.
WHAT ARE THE MOST VALUABLE LESSONS YOU LEARNED (STILL LEARNING) FROM YOUR CHILDREN?
Every situation has its solution – and every child requires a tailored, specific approach. Doing so inevitably brings out our inner child and childhood memories – it is a hilarious undertaking.
HOLISTIC EDUCATION IS THE FUTURE OF EDUCATION. YOUR CHILDREN GREW UP IN HOLISTIC SURROUNDING, HOW ABOUT YOU? SHOULDN'T WE ALL BE MORE ACCEPTING AND HOLISTIC IN OUR LIVES?
It comes with as we age I guess. But I am happy that my kids have been enjoying it from their early years.
WHY WOULD ANYONE CHOOSE BLOOM'S PHILOSOPHY AS THE EDUCATIONAL MODEL FOR THEIR CHILD?
I believe that such a model enables children to enjoy learning and their time at school – and they develop to question, test, asses and think of their world.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE QUOTE?
“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour, and some style”, by Maya Angelou.
