In 2019 - 2020, 6 colleges and 8 primary schools participated in the School of the Greats program. Due to the pandemic the activities had to be stopped in March 2020. Therefore, there was no impact measurement for 2019 - 2020.
Due to the pandemic, the School of the Greats remained closed during the 2020 - 2021 school year. For this reason, there is no 2020 - 2021 report.
