Despite Hardship, Palestinian Refugee Students in Northern Syria Achieve Excellent Results

A number of displaced Palestinian students who have been taking shelter in poorly-equipped tents north of Syria have achieved outstanding academic results, despite the traumatic effects of the Syrian warfare and displacement.

Third year secondary school student Amal Issa, displaced from Yarmouk Camp, received a score of 1,160 out of 1,200 marks during the first semester of the 2019-20 academic year.

Primary school students Aya Falah (3rd grade) and Kinan Falah (4th grade), also displaced from Yarmouk Camp, garnered high exam scores at Omar Ibn AlKhattab School, in I’zaz.

Displaced Palestinian families north of Syria continue to sound the alarm over their children’s lack of access to education as a result of the enforced deportation they have been subjected to.

They said even the private school established in the area is made up of poorly equipped tents that are not fit to study in and risk to fall into pieces in the winter season. Neither professional training staff nor proper furniture are available at the school. Students often find no other choice than to sit on the floor in order to attend lectures and jot down notes.

The families, who got displaced from Khan Eshieh and Yarmouk refugee camps, urged UNRWA to take its responsibility as regards the crisis and make urgent steps to smooth their children’s access to education premises.
