A Ukrainian school will be opened in Warsaw due to the large number of Ukrainian refugees, local media report.

The company Immofinanz provided 1,200 square meters of space in their building free of charge and the XYstudio architecture firm is working on adapting it for learning. 

 

«The situation in Warsaw schools is difficult: there is a critical shortage of spaces. There are already more than 10,000 schoolchildren from Ukraine studying in Warsaw. And most of the students have joined the Polish classes without proper preparation», – said Warsaw mayor Rafał Trzaskowski. 

 

According to the mayor, there are more than 90,000 children from Ukraine in the Polish capital. 

 

Ukraine’s Ministry of Education together with the Ministry of Digital Transformation and Institute for Education Development have launched the online platform for distance and mixed learning All-Ukrainian School Online.  

 

As reported earlier, since the start of the full-scale war in Ukraine, russian forces have destroyed more than 500 schools, with some 45 schools, kindergartens and other educational facilities destroyed in the Kyiv region alone.  

 

Host countries are providing support in various ways. Polish publishers are collecting books for Ukrainian refugee children, while their British colleagues are providing children with backpacks with books and other much-needed items. In addition, a scholarship has been created in Poland for artists who were forced to flee Ukraine because of the war.
