The school in Matejce with a new sports ground

And finally on the 1st of September, the students from Matejce started the school year with a new sports ground. Evidently happy and content, the children from Matejce immediately tried the new sports grounds and the sports equipment, whereas the teachers were intensively preparing for the school activities.

The sports ground was constructed within the USAID Interethnic Integration in Education Project in cooperation with the municipality and the local community.

At the end of March, the students from the Primary School “Hristijan Todorovski Karpos” from Rankovce visited their new friends from the partner school “Kultura” in Matejce. On this occasion, the students from both schools had a friendly match but on an improvised ground in the earthly schoolyard.

Now the situation is completely different. The students from Matejce now have a modern sports ground on which they can play football, basketball and handball.
