School: Milan Blagojevic Primary school Lucani, Serbia


Primary school "Milan Blagojevic" was established on 2. December 1899. We have a main unit, as well as four remote units in nearby villages of Markovica, Krstac, Puhovo and Donja Kravarica. There are 427 students, 70 staff members ( 46 teachers, 8 non-teaching personnel - management, pedagogue, psychologist, accounting staff and 16 cleaning staff members).

Our school has implemented several projects so far: the SEECEL project - "Entrepreneurial learning in primary schools" with coordination of Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development. Four years ago we started to cooperate with the school "Njegos" from Kotor and the school "Veljko Drobnjaković" from Risan. We established an event called Culinary journey, so every spring in May we raise money for the charities.

Our school is the first school to get a UNICEF certificate - schools without violence. The school team implemented the project "DILS" in 2011/2012. with partner schools from Guca and Kotraza where experience and knowledge gained from the project "School without Violence" was transferred. We have done the project "Professional orientation at the transition to high school" which helps students to make better and more independent decisions for their choice of profession and education. Since April 2013-2016 the school program "SPORT IN SCHOOLS" has been implemented for students in years 1-4. The school joined the project "The student reporter". The Sports Association of Serbia gave them first prize for the best video clips. On 2. December 2015. the school took part in the action "Take care of Serbian language", organized by the Faculty of Philology of Belgrade and Belgrade City Library. Our school implemented a project "Second Chance" – the third cycle of adult education instructed by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development in the academic year 2012/2013. The teachers use E-twinning portal, and they have already accomplished projects in collaboration with teachers and students from Turkey, Poland, Norway, Greece, France and Italy. 5 teachers took part in a mobility project called Shadow teacher in 2017. It was about job shadowing. During their stay in Slovenia, they had a chance to learn about internal and external networks, school electronic data base, web tools, portals and YouTube usage during regular lessons.
