Welcome news for the students of Medjimurje.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 1st of September, 2018, this year, students in Medjimurje can kick off their school year on a sure foot in forty primary and secondary schools. On the eve of the new school year, Medjimurje’s various county officials visited the educational institutions which are currently in the process of completing works with the aim of providing the students with an excellent educational start.

The officials toured several locations and schools, and when it comes to the process of energy reconstruction, the project manager’s role is being performed by the Medjimurje Energy Agency. The company’s director Alen Visnjic is extremely pleased with how the works are going.

”We expect the works to be completed by the end of this year, which will successfully conclude a cycle of energy renewal of a total value of 27 million kuna for six educational institutions,” said Visnjic. The gathered attendees were told that more and more active measures are being taken to build collectors for the production of electricity and hot water, which has multiple benefits for the schools themselves, because they are enabled by independent energy production, as well as significant energy savings.

Considerable resources will be invested into the renovation and upgrading of the schools, classrooms and sports halls this year, and according to the information available, at present there are currently 25 capital investments in education worth an enormous 234 million kuna.

The model of education by which Medjimurje is unique in the Republic of Croatia is being implemented in the new school year and will continue to provide transportation and textbooks as well as scholarships and other similar foundations with the primary aim of helping the county’s students go further in their education, 35 million kuna has been allocated for this alone.

The prefect of Medjimurje County, Matija Posavec, pointed out that the strategy of education, which they themselves designed, is slowly bringing fruit and in front of Medjimurje lies a large investment cycle in which twelve more facilities will be opened by the end of 2018.

“We’ve maintained the general standard that we’ve achieved, and we’re going forth with the largest investment in education in Medjimurje’s history, and certainly in Croatia’s [history] if we consider the fact that Medjimurje has fewer than 15,000 students,” noted Posavec.
