School administration has temporarily been moved from the damaged building, built in 1871, to a private house.

Lessons started at 8 a.m. for all 22 classes, attended by 291 out of 294 students and taught by 42 of the 51 employed teachers, head teacher Milan Orlić told Hina.

Everyone is at home, and the management and administration are here and we offer nearly all services here, Orlić said.

Asked about the health condition of the teachers and students, Orlić said it was satisfactory. The COVID situation is good, and people are under pressure because of the earthquake, he said, adding that two teachers are on five-day leave approved by the government and they have  substitutes.

Around 2 p.m. we will have precise data on the number of students who were in class today, Orlić said.

For now, all lessons are being held online, and a solution is being sought in consultation with the Sisak-Moslavina County administration for students who need practical lessons.

All school equipment was taken from the damaged building and stored elsewhere, and the management’s plan is to repair a building near the Gavrilović factory which meets structural criteria. The reconstruction of that building could start in a month and its completion is planned for May.

Everyone wants to help, our former students and others, for which we thank them, said Orlić.
