How we were able to prevent the spreading of Covid-19
We are proud to be the only educational-sporting system (kindergarten, primary, middle and secondary school, examination center and sports club) in Croatia, Europe and one of few in the world who is continuously working on site; including school and sports facilities (halls, swimming pool and playgrounds). Achieving such a fantastic result could only be accomplished through the great cooperation and teamwork with parents, students and staff, who have worked together in not allowing the spreading of Covid-19 within our school collective. We can read of this in newspapers and the press. Thank you everyone for your cooperation and we will continue to work jointly in maintaining such great results.
Over the last five weeks of this school year our students returned to school with big smile on their faces. In addition to standard lessons, a lot of sporting activities were held on our sports grounds and green surroundings.
