Audi Hungária School starts HUF 5 bln expansion
Government and corporate officials today laid the cornerstone of a HUF 5 bln expansion that will triple the size of the Audi Hungária School in Győr and double the number of spaces for pupils. One fourth of the investment is covered by European Union and state funding, according to the company.
Founded in 2010, the school has been providing an education in German to students in grades 1-9, and it has been slowly expanding to include secondary education.
"Hungarian students learn the German language and culture based on a bilingual education program. German children follow the German curriculum so that they can fit more easily after they have returned to Germany," according to Audi Hungária's web site.
At the opening ceremony, Thomas Sigi, Audi board member for human resources, praised the Hungarian workers of the Győr plant for being “well-educated, motivated and committed”.
