Moldova: An upper school for the Waldorf School in Chișinău

News ,  Current news ,  Waldorf worldwide

The Liceul Teoretic Waldorf School in Chișinău, the capital of the Republic of Moldova, is constructing a new building to create space for more pupils. With the expansion to a two-form entry, the school can also obtain recognition as a grammar high school.

Moldova is one of the smallest and poorest countries in Europe. The Waldorf School, founded in 1992, in Chișinău, is one of the first alternative schools in the country and remains the only Waldorf school. More than 700 children currently attend the kindergarten, lower and middle school. The school is very popular with families in Chişinău and many more are keen to register their children. The community kindergarten building has been converted into a school and is bursting at the seams. The lack of space has, until now, prevented the school from being expanded into a grammar school. This is because the regulations stipulate that only a two-stream school can receive recognition for a grammar high school. In order to be able to offer all classes from one to twelve in a two-stream system, however, at least four classrooms are neded, as well as rooms for upper school subject teaching: a chemistry laboratory, a physics room and a workshop. A teachers' room has not existed up to now and a gymnasium is also a prerequisite for approval.
In February, the school began construction work on the additional building. The school found the courage to take this vital step because the Friends of Waldorf Education promised to contribute a large sum of money to the total costs of €780,000. The Friends of Waldorf Education are donating €200,000. The building will be constructed on a piece of land previously used as a sports field and made available by the city. The construction work is progressing well and all parties involved are optimistic that the new building can be completed, despite the restrictions imposed by the Corona pandemic.

Liebe*r Bewerber*in,

Dear Applicant,

Currently we can accept applications from the European Union only.

Estimado solicitante,

Debido a las actuales restricciones a los viajes internacionales, lamentablemente no podemos aceptar en este momento solicitudes de voluntarios de fuera de la UE. Tan pronto como se levantan las restricciones de viaje, las solicitudes serán posibles de nuevo.
