It added, “fire fighters arrived quickly and were able to extinguish the flames before they spread to nearby houses. We are all profoundly thankful that no-one was hurt in the blaze, while an investigation has begun to establish the cause of the fire.”

OPUK added it will join in the process of rebuilding, and it will “keep our supporters updated on developments and on the ways in which they can help.”

The school’s director, Nava Sonnenschein, announced it will continue to function from another temporary location.  “We cannot afford to take a break. What cannot be destroyed is the dream of a better society with equality, peace, and justice in our country”, she said.
