Project Details


Primary Schools in Tamra

Primary schools in Israel are from grade 1 to 6; the age of the students is from 7 to 12 years. The week starts on Sundays and ends on Thursdays. Classes are usually from 8.00 a.m. to 3.00 p.m.
Subjects taught are Math, English as a foreign language, Arabic, Hebrew, sports, history, sciences, music, computer lessons, religion, drama, arts and agriculture. With the exception of English and Hebrew language lessons, the medium of teaching in Tamra is Arabic.

The "Al-Sharef" primary school is attended by 395 students (226 boys and 166 girls) who are split into 15 classes. At the "Al-Razi" primary school there are around 450 students.
To support you in teaching English, especially the use of the English language ,sports, art, music and drama/theater are used. In the elementary school, "al- Sharef " there is also the opportunity to work on the preparation of lessons with teachers and thereby contribute your own ideas and suggestions. Due to the language barrier you are likely to face, you would then just observe how the local teachers include your ideas when teaching. This activity of observing is ideal to understand the didactic sequence of lessons. Furthermore, it is possible for foreign interns/volunteers to carry out artistic workshops, such as handcrafts, (shadow) theatre, fairytales and storytelling). You can do this in English. It is also possible to give private tutoring to students, to assist them in their learning process, to motivate them and to increase their self-esteem.

The "Al-Sharef" primary school has a well-equipped computer lab called "Newton Centre", which is also used for computer classes for students of other schools.

“Al-Sharef" runs a program called "Berah" which means "flower", offering afternoon classes in Mathematics, Arabic, Hebrew and English to anyone interested.
Berah has the symbolic meaning of "to blossom".
 “Al-Sharef" wants to make itself an environmental-friendly "Green School". The first measures have been implemented, such as defining a maximum number of photocopies that each teacher is allowed to make.
The "Al-Razi" primary school runs an alternative learning centre, aimed at the provision of education by play and group work, using books, educational games, cards, puzzles and computers. In the school's basement, there is a handcraft room for creative activities and a sports room.
Both primary schools give special support to students with learning difficulties. There are extra classes making use of the concepts of special education.


Nowaideia - after school care for children from problem families

Nowaideia is a term to describe institutions where primary school age children from problem families can get after-school care. There are several Nowaideia in Tamra. The children usually arrive from Sunday to Thursday directly after school at around 2:30 p.m. and stay until 7.00 p.m. During school holidays, they stay for the whole day.
There are 14 children attending Zuhur al-Mahaba Nowaideia. Two female teachers assist the children with their homework and prepare them for exams. Furthermore, they play games, dance and do handcrafts. A supportive environment is created for the children, which is something they do not get at home for various reasons.

As a volunteer or intern you can assist the children with their homework and preparation for exams. You can also do leisure activities with them.
Nowaideia is also suitable for students of Social Work and Psychology. A social worker attends the institution twice a week and can supervise/tutor you during an internship.
All schools in Israel have psychologists who can supervise/tutor you during a psychology internship.
Pack for a Purpose
You can also support this project through Pack for a Purpose that we are proud members of. Pack for a Purpose is an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and bring supplies for area schools or medical clinics in need, you'll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.

Al-Bayan Middle and High School


"Al-Bayan" is a secondary school that has almost 1000 students from grade 7 to 12 (age 13-18). 550 students attend Middle School and 400, High School. The school employs 92 teachers. As with the primary schools, with the exception of English and Hebrew, all subjects are taught in Arabic. The students attend school for 7-8 hours per day.
Volunteers and interns can teach English, either assisting a local teacher or teaching on their own. A very high level of English is required. Furthermore, it is also possible to assist with extra classes. The school regularly receives Israeli students who do internships to gain practical work experience.
A variety of practical activities are offered at Al-Bayan school. In the science clubs for instance, theory is applied in real-world projects.
