Romania: LVE in Romania Begins with Good Results in a High School

Diana Silaghi, the newly certified Focal Point for LVE in Romania, has begun LVE in Romania. Congratulations, Diana! The first activity even prior to her “official” acceptance was an LVE workshop on "Morality, Civilization and Culture" or “Liviu Rbreanu” at a high school in the town of Turda, Cluj County. Shelagh Moore was the guest of honor, as an experienced LVE Facilitator and LVE leader in the United Kingdom. Diana reported that Shelagh’s presentation and the debate were remarkably successful. “Our students have understood and realized these values and after a year we have good feedback.”

In October 2013, Diana and her colleagues conducted a “Correlation of positive values ​​with our lifestyle" activity in which students made associations between positive values ​​and styles of being. In 2014, they plan to involve other schools in their LVE project.

Training in Romania -- August 23rd - 27th, 2004 

In Techirghiol, along the Black See, 31 kindergarten, primary and secondary school teachers, as well as the Director of the Kindergarten and the Director of the Lyc attended a five-day training in the Living Values Education Program methodology. 


The training was conducted by Monique Liger, LVE coordinator for France and Dr. Elisabeta Negreanu, LVE coordinator for Romania, with the collaboration of assistant professor, Adina Ignat, and primary school teacher, Maria Tanase, both LVE Trainers in Suceava county. The translation was done by Mr. Alexandru Matei.


After almost two years of implementating of Living Values Education Program in Romania (since November 2002), teachers, inspectors and directors from 7 out of the 41 counties in Romania have now been trained and many new demands are there. 


However, a new step was made to pilot LVEP model schools. The little city of Techirghiol has been chosen to be the first place to implement Living Values Education Program at every school level: in its kindergarten and primary schools as well as in the Lyc where Veronica Frincu, the Director, welcomed the Living Values team. 


During the four-day training, participants did activities on Peace, Respect, Cooperation, Love, Responsibility and Unity. They were reminded of the new role of a teacher and learned more about techniques of communication, such as Active Listening and Conflict Resolution, as well as a model for explicit and precise Appreciation. They did an action plan for the coming school year, for the whole community of schools and to introduce values into the curricula. 


Most of the participants also attended the one-day session for parents because they recognized the need of cooperating with families in order to apply LVEP in a way that benefits each child. 


The participants were very active, available and open to this method. They enjoyed the training a lot and concluded by expressing their feelings and thoughts: 

  • A great challenge! Interesting! Curious! Attractive! A real gain! 

  • It was very interesting! There were new things which we will use for enrichment of the soul. 

  • I was impressed by the very close interaction of trainer / trainees. 

  • This session allowed us to develop better interpersonal relationships among teachers from our school.

  • It was an interesting activity which changed my mood and inspired me for future activity.

  • The training is very efficient for all! The trainers were very professional. The most important gain is that all teachers have participated so that we could develop a value-based atmosphere in our kindergarten and in our team.

  • The training energized me; I consider it would be important to develop it on a wider area.

  • Initially I was skeptical, but after that I become more attracted; I was impressed by methods and approach; I felt enriched by knowledge and methodology. 

  • I am in Techirghiol since 1990; since then this training is the most beautiful thing that has happened; I saw another side of my colleagues; do not forget that together we are a power. 
    It was very useful for spirit and mind. Thank you! 

  • Calmness, play, joy, peace. 

  • A very pleasant, constructive and beneficial atmosphere.

  • It fits very well now, at the beginning of the new school year. 

  • It was a good example of unity and cooperation. 

  • It was an opportunity to make alive my own values. 

  • Lots of information; knowledge, cooperation, positive atmosphere.

  • It was a way for improving the relationships between colleagues, for energizing and bringing new ideas for the new school year.
