In Tomsk, Siberia, there is a Catholic school run by the Society of Jesus, whose teachers have been trained for several years by the Arrupe Centre in Warsaw. It is the only Jesuit school in the Russian Federation and the only Catholic school offering education at all levels.

On Monday 16 April, nine teachers from Tomsk came to Poland. They were accompanied by Fr. Wojciech Ziółek, who has been working for three years in Tomsk. Our guests met with the management, teachers and students of the Gymnasium and the St. Stanisława Kostka school in Kraków and listened to exciting relationships from the first years of the school existence.

Russian teachers have been taking part in lectures and in a workshop on the Ignatian model of pedagogy and the characteristic features of Jesuit education. Classes have been held at the Media Center of the WAM Publishing House in Krakow run by dr Ewa Dybowska from the Ignatianum Academy and Fr. Wojciech Żmudziński.

The teachers visited the Jesuit Education Centre in Nowy Sącz, and the Jesuit Schools Complex in Gdynia, where they will also have taken part in workshops conducted by the Arrupe Centre trainers.

The study visit of the teachers from Tomsk is part of an international educational project implemented by the Association of Christian Education and the Arrupe Centre with funds of the Episcopate of the United States.
