Project Description

Currently, 100 preschool children and 900 students from 1st to 8th grade attend the primary school Dimitrije Tucovic. The earthquake in Kraljevo on the 3rd of November 2010 affected the entire town and caused serious damages to the school. Following the instructions of the authorities, a section of the building was closed due to the damages, leaving 12 classrooms unusable. The elementary school Dimitrije Tucovic was teaching its classes in four different shifts from 7:00 to 19:30 and lessons have been shortened to 30 minutes. Breaks were also reduced to a minimum, making classes in some cases a burden for children, their parents and school workers.

With the support of the Lyoness Child & Family Foundation, new school furniture was supplied for the unused sections of the school building that is now renovated. The former furnishings were severely damaged by the earthquake and deemed unusable. School desks, chairs, boards, coat stands, teacher-desks, wardrobes, doors, computers, a laptop and a projector were purchased.

Project Goals

The project goal was to promote an optimal environment, to achieve a healthy atmosphere for teaching and reorganise classes to its original form, in order to maintain the quality of the primary school Dimitrije Tucovic’s education.
