Ofarim School December 2024 Project Report
Dear donators and supporters,
The Ofarim school continues to run as usual despite the difficult situation in Israel. We build a safe and calm environment for our special education students. The team tries to prepare experiential lessons with lots of songs, dances and joy.
We also renovated a new yard. In the yard there are swings, a climbing wall and slides, running and jumping tracks. The students go down to the yard with a lot of joy.
Our paramedical team underwent additional training regarding containment and communication with the students during difficult times such as expressing feelings through symbols or gestures, going down to shelters during practice, making inventions in a closed space for a long time with the help of objects and games to which the child is attached to.
The school management tries to maintain a correct academic lessons and classes are carried out as usual. The staff goes through a daily briefing at the beginning of each day. The administration is in close contact with a security officer who makes sure every day that the situation allows learning at the school.
We are celebrating Hanukkah and our students performed in a show initiated on by our great music teacher Raya Turkin.
She combined students from different classes and adapted dances for different children.
The show was spectacular and happy with lights and music and finally the lighting of the first candle of Hanukkah.
Hanukkah is a holiday of miracles, a holiday that symbolizes the victory of light over darkness. We wish all the people of Israel and all the people in the world to win miracles and see only the good!
Thank you for you support and donation!
Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas and hope for peaceful times.
