Portuguese schools have already welcomed 500 Ukrainian pupils

Portuguese schools have already received the enrolment of 500 Ukrainian schoolchildren fleeing the war, Minister of Education Tiago Brandão Rodrigues said today, anticipating that the number will continue to increase. He explained that Ukrainian pupils are immediately placed in a class, but the first step is to give them Portuguese language classes.”Then, gradually, they will enter the curriculum. This is a process that is very common to Portuguese schools,” he said, reaffirming that schools are prepared for this challenge.
