Zespol Szkol Integracyjnych im Jana Pawla II
A school engaged in the education of disabled and non-disabled children. We have just under 300 pupils aged between around 5 and 15 and we employ around 40 teachers. The school’s daily activities start at 7 a.m. and end about 4 p.m. Our pupils work in integrated and non-integrated classes. There are classroom support teachers to take care of the disabled pupils during lessons and breaks in the integrated classes. The integrated classes have around 20 pupils and the others are larger. The school building is located on the outskirts of Klodzko, near the school there is a bus stop, which can make easier the journey to the center of town. For the school it is very important to work with volunteers as the volunteers bring language skills, interests and creativity from their own culture to the pupils in school.
