The Maria Grzegorzewska Special Education Needs School in Malbork
There are five integrated parts of the school:
The Special Education Needs School in Malbork named after Maria Grzegorzewska has conducted its activities for 50 years. Mentally handicapped children and youths aged between 7 to 24 are provided with professional care, multilateral stimulation, teaching and upbringing. Students are taught in ten to sixteen students groups under the supervision of well-educated teaching staff. The classes are held according to special curriculums which were carefully prepared and adapted to the students needs and capabilities. Moreover, they attend therapeutic classes such as: art therapy, hydrotherapy, psychological, pedagogical, speech and library therapy conducted by professionals in the fields mentioned above. The students have the opportunities to participate in corrective, compensatory and remedial courses. We care for their wide sports, vocal, theatre, computer and artistic interests to be developed. The Students' Sport Club "Jagiellonka" involves disabled young people in sports competition as the part of the Polish Sports Social Society "Able Together" and Paralympics Games for Poland. Both the students' parents and the teachers are members of "Children of Special Needs Association".
