An understandings of respective cultures brings us closer. A common language builds bridges. With English-language and computer classes we can share knowledge and create national and international friendships.
With help from the Hill Foundation, we have already begun offering young, interested people the possibility to undertake an intensive computer training course. The classes will be held in our Computer Centre (established in September 2013), with employment opportunities following completion of the course.

In the morning, the Computer Centre is used to teach children from neighbouring schools and our own school; and in the afternoon we offer computer classes for adults.
