Private Gymnasium started its work Islamic Cultural Centre in Kyiv.

This is the only Muslim gymnasium in Kyiv at present. It’s not necessary, however, to be Muslim to become a pupil — every child is equally welcome.

The study plan, fulfilling the obligatory state education program, also makes a good showing by advanced study of foreign languages (English and Arabic), lessons on Ethics and Ethnic traditions.

As correspondent "Islam in Ukraine" was informed, the Gymnasium is semi-pension; the pupils will get halal meals and opportunity to stay at after school centre afterhours.

More than 40 pupils are registered at the school at present; many Muslim families, however, find this project interesting and are considering the possibility to transfer their kids either in the current or in the next school year. Besides Arabic, the children will study the Holy Qur’an, Gymnasium founders said.
