On Monday, Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre (AP) visited a school in Sandefjord that several children from Ukraine now attend.
“It left a strong impression on me. These children have been through a lot in the past, but after coming here, they can look ahead,” Støre told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).
On Monday, he visited the City School in Sandefjord, a school that has a long tradition of accepting children who speak a foreign language.
The school currently has five Ukrainian refugees as students. At school, they learn basic Norwegian. Eventually, they will go to other schools in the Municipality.
Støre was greeted by songs when he arrived at the school, and he received, among other things, a drawing with a message of solidarity with Ukraine.
Nine-year-old Kotsja and Misha, who recently arrived in Norway from Ukraine and have only been going to the school for a few days, were among the students Støre met.
