The principal of a South Tel Aviv school whose student body is largely the children of foreign workers and asylum seekers has won the Charles Bronfman Prize for 2011.

The prize committee said that Principal Karen Tal's Bialik-Rogozin School "serves as a global model rooted in compassion for those seeking to provide the basic right of education to all children in environments where they can learn, grow and thrive."

Bialik-Rogozin, which is home to around 800 students from 48 different countries, was the subject of the film "Strangers no More", which won the Best Documentary Short at the 2011 Academy Awards in February.

The prize includes a $100,000 award, and according to the prize committee "goes to a young humanitarian whose work is informed and fueled by Jewish values and has broad, global impact that can potentially change lives."
