Gergely Gulyás, head of the Prime Minister’s Office, attended a ceremony on Wednesday at which the Rákóczi Association handed over 16 school buses to serve ethnic Hungarian children in Slovakia.
The new buses will be part of a network in southern Slovakia aimed to help Hungarian children get to school, Gulyás said. He also added that in wake of the pilot project the number of children going to Hungarian schools had increased by one third. In September, 266 ethnic Hungarian children will start the school year in Hungarian schools, he added.
“If there are more children preserving our language, there will be more people to preserve our culture,” Gulyás said.
