LE COORDONNATEUR HUMANITAIRE
Students from several countries - many of whom are barred from the state system - get free lessons from 3-6pm in the classrooms of a pioneering private school in Johannesburg
"These children can't go to real schools... kids have been beaten up, assaulted, deprived of food," said college head Colin Northmore of the plight of young migrants in South Africa.
So each day when lessons end at his pioneering Sacred Heart school in Johannesburg, migrant children fill up the empty classrooms - and are taught by migrant teachers.
For many children around the world, having a safe space to learn is far from guaranteed due to the threat of armed conflict and the targeting of schools. In this guest post for ‘In Focus’, Peter Klanduch and Margaret Sinclair of Education Above All’s legal advocacy programme PEIC – Protect Education in Insecurity and Conflict (PEIC) – explain the background to this global problem and the importance of keeping education safe for all children.
