Project Report | May 11, 2021
Back to School - In Person!

By admin | admin

The Primary School is an exceptional place. As you may already know, it is the first school in
Israel where children learn together in Hebrew and Arabic, and models a successful bilingual,
binational approach to education for equal numbers of Palestinian and Jewish children ages kindergarten
through sixth grade. What you may not know is that 90% of the school’s students arrive from
more than a dozen communities in the region to join the eligible children from the Village itself.
As students return for in-person learning, the Primary School is also growing as a learning community.

In March, the children celebrated Purim. In accordance with COVID regulations, each class celebrated the
holiday in separate capsules. Currently, many students are observing Ramadan, and their teachers ensure
these students are supported throughout this special. Whether or not children are fasting during
Ramadan, the Primary School also celebrates Girgian. This festival is celebrated halfway through the Muslim
holy month to reward children for observing Ramadan, though all students participate in the festivities.
