During his travel to Iceland for the forum of arctic countries the governor of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug Dmitry Artyukhov visited several educational platforms in Reykjavik (Iceland). Implementing a number of large-scale social projects and activating construction of social objects in the northern region of Russia, the head of Yamal assessed the results of work of the northern colleagues in the same sphere.
Thus, the guests visited Norlingaskoli state school. It is a small inclusive educational institution, where about 30 percent of pupils are children with special needs. Work of teachers of the school is based on the belief that every person should choose a direction for his/her education himself/herself in order to finish school as an independent, strong specialist and an accomplished person. The program for each pupil, in addition to training of basic skills, is individual and based on their needs and strong sides. The school accepts all pupils in the school district regardless of level of knowledge, state of health and any beliefs.
The analogous scheme of education is being introduced in Yamal. For example, specialists in Noviy Urengoy together with the company “Wintershall” are fulfilling the project of the inclusive kindergarten, where up to 20 percent of children can be with special needs. They will be offered groups of full-time and short-term stay, sports and health-improving, correctional and developmental classes, musical and aesthetic programs, a center of comprehensive assistance for provision of psychological, pedagogical, medical and social services.
The sports complex Breidablik, which was also visited by the delegation of Yamal, is interesting because it offers northern children the huge choice of sports to practice. In the complex it is possible to train in powerlifting, karate, skiing, chess, Taekwondo, swimming, football, athletics, cycling and so on. At the same time, coaches practice early sports — classes can be attended by children aged from three years old. Little kids and schoolchildren train mainly in the second half of the day, and the first is given to representatives of the older generation.
Arctic countries and regions pay great attention to the fact that northerners would have opportunities for doing sports. It is planned to build about 50 sports objects in Yamal by 2024, more than half of them will be modular and will be located in remote settlements of the region. Sports complexes are being built in almost all municipalities of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug.
Much attention is paid to health of older people. All municipalities created conditions for physical education and active pastime for the elderly — there are sections of powerlifting, Nordic walking, ski clubs, associations of chess players.
