MK Idit Silman, chair of the Knesset Health Committee, chose to open the 2021-2022 school year at ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran’s Special Education School and kindergartens.

MK Silman visited the various classes as well as the rehabilitation daycare center located within the village and wished all of the students a happy, healthy and productive year.

“The first day of school in special education schools for children with disabilities is particularly happy. It is more difficult for children with special needs to be socially distant, and I together with the children I feel the excitement of beginning the school year with everyone present.

“I see the exceptional staff and teachers who have prepared such lovely classrooms for the new year and I am certain that together with parental cooperation the children will succeed in overcoming challenges to make their dreams come true.”

Avi Wortman, CEO of ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran and former Deputy Minister of Education commented that, “it is a joy to see the students arriving for the new school year and we are proud to be those chosen to help the students advance during the coming year. The children many not be able to verbally proclaim, “Hello, first grade,” but as a result of the love they receive from all of the staff, their happiness in coming to school is evident by the glow in their eyes. I wish everyone a healthy year full of happiness and progress. We are here to help the children make headway and to turn dreams into reality.”
