The visit of His Excellency the Minister of Education to Shem
Minister Przemyslaw Chernik met with Polish students to ensure their safety in Polish schools, as Poland is a member of the largest defense alliance, NATO. During the conversation, the Minister clarified what fake news and misinformation about welcoming refugees from Ukraine is appearing on social media. – It was built from the attitude of Polish students who approach Ukrainian students with a big heart, said the Head of the Ministry after the meeting.
The Minister also expressed his happiness to meet the Ukrainian children and their adaptation to the preparatory units.
– I also grew up the way Ukrainian children behave, they are really comfortable, they feel good here, they are well received and appreciated. The minister added that in the event that they do not understand Polish and do not speak Polish, being in a preparatory ward is less stressful for them than attending Polish language lessons without knowing the language.
The head of MEiN also noted that helping Ukrainian children occurs without interfering with the Polish education system. The president as an administrative body and the school principal are at the fore in the Polish education system for Polish schools and for Polish children. At the same time, he stressed that we organize the education of Ukrainian children at the highest possible level with minimal interference with the current functioning of schools, citing the Chełm School, which is an example.
The meeting was attended by: Chełm President, Jakub Banaszek, Chełm Vice President, Dorota Cieślik, Lublin Education Minister Teresa Misiuk and School Principal, Bożena Goszczyńska.
