Polish Saturday School in Belfast was established in 2007 and was the first Polish supplementary schools in Northern Ireland. We currently have approximately 180 pupils enrolled in our school.
The Mission of the Saturday School is to preserve and promote Polish identity and culture for young people positively, sensitively and flexibly, so they know and appreciate their culture and are prepared sufficiently in the language if they were to return to the Polish educational system.
The Polish Saturday School has its own website: www.pssbelfast.com
Our Vision for next 5 years
- To be here
- To have secure accommodation
- To have smaller classes – maximum 20 students
- To have support teachers/counsellors
- To have older/past students involved
- To be part of a network of Polish schools in Northern Ireland with training available for teachers
- To offer cultural visits to Poland
- To reward teachers
- To offer students a certificate that is recognised in Poland
- IF the opportunity arises, the Vision may change and be focused on setting up a formal school within the educational system.
