The TECHIIA-supported Ukrainian school in Cyprus has completed the academic year and invites children to summer camps
Over 30 children from Ukrainian families in four primary school classes heard the final bell in Limassol on the island of Cyprus. After the full-scale invasion of russia into Ukraine, children of internally displaced persons receive education in the social school "Kryla" (Wings), which is a partner of the TECHIIA holding.
On the occasion of the last bell ceremony, the children gathered together wearing traditional Ukrainian embroidered shirts – “vyshyvanka.” In a joyful and friendly atmosphere, the young students received certificates of achievement and celebrated the winners of reading competitions.
"Two months ago, we started reading competitions – students try to read as many book pages as possible and share their impressions of literature with each other. And those who managed to read the most were recognized during the last bell ceremony," explains Lilia Lapeyeva, the founder and head of the Ukrainian educational space "Kryla."
During the summer vacation period, "Kryla" does not plan to close its doors; on the contrary, they invite children to six themed camps, each lasting two weeks. Children can expect fun activities, sports games, creative sessions, theater, singing, English language lessons, excursions, trips to the sea, beach games, and much more. Registration for the camp is available at the link.
"The team of the educational space 'Kryla' has created something more than just a school. It is a real Ukrainian center that helps children develop, maintain a connection with home, and allows them to continue their education in Ukraine at any time. We are delighted to support such initiatives," comments Marianna Konina, Chief Public Engagement Officer of the TECHIIA holding.
It is worth noting that the Ukrainian educational space "Kryla" operates with the support of the "Techiia Foundation" NGO. It educates over 30 children in zero, first, second, and fourth grades. The children are taught according to the "New Ukrainian School" (NUSh) program in partnership with a school in Ukraine. Therefore, the students receive the necessary knowledge and documents that allow them to continue their education in Ukraine or Cyprus without any problems. The tuition fee is symbolic and a few times lower than in other schools on the island. This became possible thanks to monthly grants from the "Techiia Foundation."
