Gesher’s tem­po­rary home

The Jewish Chronicle - - EDUCATION - BY ROSA DO­HERTY

GESHER, THE Jewish pri­mary spe­cial school due to open in Septem­ber, has se­cured a tem­po­rary site in what was pre­vi­ously a Nor­wood ther­apy cen­tre.

The Hope Cen­tre build­ing in Willes­den Green, north-west Lon­don, is to house the new school while it awaits its per­ma­nent home at Si­nai School.

Ali Dur­ban, co-founder of the school, said: “Nor­wood have been in­cred­i­bly sup­port­ive of us from the start and we’re truly touched to be of­fered this ex­cit­ing fit-for-pur­pose dy­namic prop­erty. Peo­ple may be fa­mil­iar with The Hope Ther­apy Cen­tre and the spe­cialised ed­u­ca­tional sup­port it has pro­vided our com­mu­nity’s chil­dren with.”

The cen­tre will en­able chil­dren start­ing the school in Septem­ber to ac­cess a sen­sory in­te­gra­tion area, ther­apy rooms, and an out­door space.

Si­nai pupils will also be able to use the cen­tre. Ms Dur­ban said: “It is ab­so­lutely our in­ten­tion that the part­ner­ship will be of mu­tual ben­e­fit to both Si­nai and Gesher pupils.”
