The secondary school students celebrated the renovation of the school

At the beginning of February, the students from the secondary gymnasium and civil engineering school “Zdravko Cvetkovski” from Skopje celebrated the renovation of the school building. In the past period, new windows and entry doors were placed in the school, which will significantly improve the conditions for implementation of the educational process.

The renovation of the school was implemented as part of the USAID Interethnic Integration in Education Project in order to provide better conditions for learning and for work and to foster intensive cooperation among the students of different ethnic backgrounds.

They presented various models that they created together, and they also showed how they learn, nurture and support the democratic values ​​through the democratic participation school club.

In the end, the ecology school club, by means of an experiment, suggested that the cars should use seawater instead of gasoline in order to preserve the environment. In that manner, the students once again demonstrated what it means to be an active participant in the community that may be better for everyone.
