As part of the reconstruction works in Kobanê, a primary school has been opened under the leadership of 10 teachers who had been providing education in the schools in the town before the attacks of ISIS gangs began.

Thousands of Kobanê citizens have turned back to their hometown which was liberated by YPG/YPJ (People’s/Women’s Defense Units) after three months of heroic resistance to the occupation attempt and attacks of ISIS gangs.

While the needs of the returnees are being met through in a communal way, the people are trying to rebuild the life in the town with restricted opportunities. Volunteers are performing an intense work, also with regards to education in the face of the increasing number of children among those turning back to the war-torn town.

As part of the reconstruction works, a primary school has been opened under the leadership of 10 teachers who had been providing education in the schools in the town before the attacks of ISIS gangs began. Training materials in the school, which has 8 classes, consist only the already available materials left after the months-long battle.

A total of 250 children are provided education in the Martyr Osman primary school which has already entered the second week of training.

Hosting the students in two separate sessions, the school provides education for the pupils at 7-10 age group in the morning and those at 11-15 age group in the afternoon.

The daily program of the school begins with the Kurdish anthem ‘Ey reqip’.

The children attending the school in the morning receive courses on Life and Environment, Mathematics, Physical Education, Music, while those attending in the afternoon are given Kurdish, Arabic and English education.

One of the teachers, Ruken Muhammed, tells that all educational institutions in the town have been destroyed in the ISIS attacks, adding; “We have reopened this school through our own means in order to make sure the children who have been severely affected by the battle can live their childhood and continue their interrupted education.

Muhammed notes that they lack training materials, adding; “We are waiting for the support of all people, institutions and establishments to enable the children of Kobanê to grow up with the education they need, not in a conflict psychology.
