In recent days, Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine Serhii Shkarlet together with Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sports of the Republic of Armenia Zhanna Andreasyan and Head of the St. Gregory the Illuminator Charitable Organization Suren Sardanyan signed a Memorandum of Intent to develop a Ukrainian-Armenian International School.
Charge d’Affaires of Ukraine to the Republic of Armenia Oleksandr Senchenko and Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Armenia to Ukraine Vladimir Karapetyan were also present at the meeting.
The main issues discussed were the expansion of a safe and engaging educational space for Ukrainian students to provide real, lively opportunities for development and unleashing the invaluable potential of every child for the sake of a peaceful future for both Ukraine and the world.
“Opening such a school is another step in uniting the forces of educators in the struggle for peace, an example of international educational and cultural cooperation between two countries, which reminds us that the main value of the world is human life,” said Serhii Shkarlet.
The Ukrainian-Armenian International School was established to strengthen cooperation in education, exchange professional experience, and deepen the study of cultural heritage and scientific achievements of Ukraine and Armenia. The school building was erected by the Armenian community of Odesa. The school is scheduled to open in September 2023. In addition, a scientific and creative center for children will be established on the basis of the Ukrainian-Armenian International School, which will closely cooperate with the world-famous TUMO Center for Creative Technologies, Armenia.
