Fugee School is the heart of the organisation, and was established in 2009 to ensure no child would be left out of school due to their refugee status. What started as tuition for 4 Somali siblings has grown in scope and size. 14 years later, Fugee School is committed to creating education pathways for all refugee students, at any age and stage of their education journey. Schools play a vital role supporting children through displacement by assembling the building blocks that help them overcome trauma, feel safe again and restart their education. We have educated over 600+ students, ages 4-18 and our current admission is 170 students. Success at Fugee School, is every child given the opportunity and support to reach their full potential and build dignified lives.
Fugee School provides education from Kindergarten to Grade 9.
We offer a holistic and competitive curriculum tailored to the needs of the refugee student taking into account the impact of forced displacement. The focus is on a 3 part holistic learning approach of social and emotional development, applicable academic knowledge and supporting students in times of crisis.
As the education journey of a refugee child is disrupted, their education levels are affected. Our learner centered approach ensures transition readiness at any stage- so at any point of resettlement students are able to assimilate well academically and socially and be able to take advantage of further opportunities, ultimately cultivating creative, compassionate and critical, future thinking individuals.
Fugee School's core values are embedded in all classes, programmes and teacher trainings. We hope these shared values cultivate more compassionate global citizens.
The focus is a 3 part holistic learning approach, designed to develop all aspects of each student with opportunities in and outside of the classroom, empowering them to reach their full potential.
The Dream School is a goal we have set for ourselves to build a bigger, brighter, and safe learning environment for our students. We aim to redesign our curriculum into a blended learning model to increase our student capacity. This involves teacher training and digitizing school systems for smoother operations. Our focus is on improving the pedagogical approach to enhance our kids' cognitive and social development. Every child must feel safe, excited and motivated to come to school everyday.
