Learning and playing together in Gjakova
Today, Thursday, we visited Ganimete Terbeshi pre-school in Gjakova. When we arrived, we were greeted by Gazmend Hoxha, the pre-school director, and Yllka Komoni, who works as a support teacher. They gave us an introduction and then we got to meet three different groups of children.
We painted together with the kids, sang songs and played. The school works with inclusive education, including children with disabilities, children from minority groups and other children in the same groups. The institution works with more than 1,000 children in its seven buildings across the Municipality of Gjakova. We visited the main building where 120 children attend daily; 12 of them have some sort of disability.
In the afternoon, we visited the community based rehabilitation centre Handikos, which is supported by Save the Children in Kosovo. We joined a supplementary lesson and got to see how they combine practical and theoretical methods to facilitate learning.
