Bergen municipality has established a separate introductory school for Ukrainian children that live in emergency reception centers. On Monday, the first students will be in place.

The goal of the school is to take in children on the run in the best possible way and get them into the school system quickly, Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) writes.

The school will have room for 300 students.

“It could be that we have 50 students on Monday, or it could be that we have 100,” principal Mona Fåberg said.

“It is very important for us that children who come to Bergen have the opportunity to go to school. It is a right they have,” City Councilor for Kindergarten, School, and Sports, Linn Katrin Pilskog, said.

Children who live at private addresses in Bergen will go to school in local schools.
