Dundee Russian School

Our charity has been set up to provide an educational support to the bilingual children from the mixed families residing in Tayside and Fife.

Founded 2011

  • Mission statement

    Our main objectives are to provide the language and education support to the bilingual children from the local community. Our charity fills the gap in the existing education system that doesn’t offer an immediate solution to the problem of maintaining the mother tongue among the bilingual children from the mixed families born in UK or new migrants. Our curriculum includes classes of Russian grammar, arts, crafts, science we also have dancing studio and a Russian choir. We organize cultural events, New Year parties, festivals, public lectures and presentations. We also involved in a number of media projects, including the Grow Story Grow project aimed to design the foreign language courses for the British children, film projects (Russian voice over). We also organize educational trips (last year we’ve been to the European parliament). We also conduct the fundraising initiatives aimed to raise money to pay our rent and other expenses that are not covered by grants and membership fees.
