MoE rejects request to set up Finnish school – Lack of buildings cited

KUWAIT CITY, Aug 26: An educational institution has asked permission from the Ministry of Education to establish a foreign school using the Finnish curriculum just like the British, American and German schools, reports Al-Rai daily.

However, Undersecretary of the ministry Dr Haitham Al-Athari rejected the request due to lack of buildings for this purpose. On the other hand, educational sources pointed out that the Finnish community in Kuwait speaks Uralic language which is spoken only by the Finnish and part of Sweden minorities.

Sources said the Finnish language is not as common as other languages like English, French and German that are spoken by different communities – either in Kuwait or in many other parts of the world.
