First Muslim Gymnasium “Our Future” Opens its Doors For the Schoolchildren
Private Gymnasium started its work at Kyiv Islamic Cultural Centre with the solemn opening “First Bell” ceremony on September 1, 2014 at 11AM. The study plan, fulfilling the obligatory state education programme, also makes a good showing by advanced study of foreign languages (English and Arabic), lessons on Ethics and Ethnic traditions.
As correspondent "Islam in Ukraine" was informed, the Gymnasium is semi-pension; the pupils will get halal meals and opportunity to stay at after school centre afterhours.
This is the only Muslim gymnasium in Kyiv at present. It’s not necessary, however, to be Muslim to become a pupil — every child is equally welcome.
Maximum attention for each pupil is a peculiarity of this school; each class contains 5 to 15 children. Besides having high professional qualification, the teachers are expected to help each child fulfil one’s personal and creative potential.
More than 40 pupils are registered at the school at present; many Muslim families, however, find this project interesting and are considering the possibility to transfer their kids either in the current or in the next school year. Besides Arabic, the children will study the Holy Qur’an, Gymnasium founders said.
