The new school year has begun at Ofarim School.  
We started the year with 5 first graders, and we are excited to welcome the young pupils to the school.
The pupils came from different kindergartens and joined the different classes.  
We see their developmental process at school and how little children slowly but surely become confident pupils and more independent children.
The 1st grade team had a special training to welcome the students and integrate them into the school.  They prepared whiteboards in the classrooms, educational materials, and games that would be especially suitable for first grade kids and would contribute to their development at school.
Along with learning, pupils also get to experience different spaces.  They go out to get to know the environment, playgrounds, zoos, and the sea.  The students really enjoy and learn during the trips and discover new things.
This year our school has grown and many new pupils have joined us.  Even during the school year, Ofarim School continues to accept new students and integrate them into different classes.
The management team sees each student individually and tries to fit him with the environment that best suits him cognitively and communicatively.
At the Ofarim school, students are from wide range of the authism spectrum. The school put a lot of emphasise on the communication development of the kids.  It allows the classes to collaborate with the other classes, to do peer learning, and to teach the students to communicate and initiate communication.
We are happy that with the help of our knowledge and experience, we manage to receive and accommodate our students and wrap them in love.
 Thank you for your support and generosity.

Hello everyone, 
Another fruitful school year had come to the end at the Ofarim school.  
A year full of progress and students advancements.
A year full of different and various activities that include: collaborations with external parties, work using the TEACH method, educational tours to the zoo and many trips around the country.
Last month, the students also went on a trip to the capital city of Jerusalem for a tour with volunteers.  The students visited the Western Wall and the Aquarium and walked the streets of Jerusalem accompanied by trained staff.
Towards the end of the year, the students celebrated the end of the school year with celebrations at the school.  The students participated in musical rehearsals, learned songs and dances and performed at end of the year ceremony.  
The celebrations were attended by many parents and teachers who accompanied the students throughout the year.
The school year ended at the end of June and the school switched to a summer camp format.  School is organized in an optimal way for the summer camp with lots of activities and enrichment activities.  We created a summery and fresh environment for the students with the help of inflatable pools and water slides.  The students experimented with baking and prepared different kind of food.
 With the help of various professionals who volunteered to deliver activities at the school, the students enjoyed capuera, an animal circle, and a DJ dancing.
 Thank you for your kindness and we hope that you continued generous contribution and enriching cooperation.

Ofarim School continues its activities and blessed work.
The School is a multicultural school. The educational staff and students are from different religions and we are proud of that.  We happily celebrate the holidays of the the different religions in a creative way and expose the students to the variety of customs.
Our students continue to learn and enjoy activities that combine life experiences and skills.  Activities empower and enrich students in a variety of areas.
Ofarim School is there to promote collaborations with a variety of different organizations that vist our school like high school students, "masa aher "organization and supporting companies and individuals like you.
On Purim a lot of people came to make the holiday happier. They made Hamantashens for kids, clowns performances, and all the kids got Mishloach manot (surprise packages with sweets and toys). 
On Passover our school worked as a summer camp.  We used this time as  an opportunity for special activities for the children.  The students went out to watch movies, visited the bowling, and rode the train.  Inflatable facilities and various workshops were operated at the school as well.
Ofarim School believes in giving and receiving the other without any conditions and in providing equal opportunities to all students.  The staff continues its work as a mission and a desire to provide a better future for students.
Thank you again for your contribution We greatly appreciate it.
