A total of 10,499 students participated in a variety of activities and classes in arts, music, sports, French, Arabic, English, and mathematics. A further 1,835 students were enrolled in catch-up classes. Summer learning classes took place in 32 schools, while 22 schools offered catch-up classes. In total, 172 teachers, 33 supervisors and 54 Psychosocial Support sta¬ff in Damascus, Homs, Dera’a, Aleppo, Hama and Latakia facilitated classes. Implementing the SLP is a critical intervention to ensure that children at risk of dropping out are provided with the necessary support in preparation for the next academic year.
