Representatives of the DPR Human Rights Ombudsman Office conducted an inspection of the educational process and living conditions in the Uglegorsk Special General Education Boarding School No.6. Currently, 69 orphans and children deprived of parental care with mild physical or mental developmental defects attend the school.
In 2014, the boarding school was almost destroyed as a result of armed aggression by Security Services of Ukraine. At the moment, only one building of three is operational. Roofing and glazing were fully restored, as well as water supply and heating systems; interior fit-out was made.
In the institution, there are classrooms, a library, a medical unit, bedrooms, playrooms, a canteen, and a music hall, where all festive events are held. Outside there are a playground and a laundry. The basement has a bomb shelter.
The syllabus was adapted to the needs and abilities of children according to their physical, mental and intellectual development. Children (grades 1 to 9) stay in the institution for 24 hours. The number of students in each group meets the requirement and does not exceed 12 pupils.
A paediatrician, nurses and educators monitor the children’s physical welfare and observance of the special regime.
Education and living environment for children in the Uglegorsk Special General Education Boarding School No.6 were positively assessed by the inspectors.
