Another school year has ended and the 25 students in KG3 graduated from the kindergarten in Wadi Zayne. These students will go on to study in Lebanese elementary schools. The other 75 students will re-join classes in September along with a new intake of young ones.

All the students have shown good progress through the year thanks to a well-constructed curriculum.

The psychosocial support activities for the children have been invaluable. Since the children in this area reside in ‘gatherings’ rather than refugee camps, they bear the social pressure of the country’s multiple crises directly and indirectly. The kindergarten staff provide learning support activities that focus on helping the children with their lessons and assignments after school.

The anti-bullying activities focused on nationality-based bullying where children are encouraged not to discriminate based on nationality. The school includes less privileged children from the Lebanese community which helps integration and understanding. These activities promote friendship in order to make sure that children’s relations with one another are improved.

Art-based psycho-social activities were held weekly and included drawing, playdough shaping, and expressive acting (for older children in KG3). Through this the children have been able to develop emotional and cognitive skills to deal with a complicated world. It helps them to cope with emotions and stress while using life skills through drama and painting techniques.

One teacher said: “Looking back on this journey, we are grateful for the opportunity to nurture their curiosity and support their educational voyage. We remain committed to empowering these young minds as they continue to explore and embrace the world of learning.”

Thank you for supporting their journey.
