“My class, My school, My family”

“My class, My school, My family”- the motto of our school!

Secondary vocational school Rakovice is a school with 75-year tradition. It prepares specialists in the fields of agriculture, landscaping, horticulture, floristry and management of regional tourism. Our school is the only one in Slovakia which currently offers the study of floristry.

During their studies our students gain theoretical knowledge and practical skills not only by practising in the school greenhouse, fruit orchard, the school park but also working with fruit, vegetable and flowers growers.

Students of fields Arranger of Flowers and Floristry present their skills at the “Victoria Regia” and “Flora Bratislava” international competitions of floristry. Our students show their excellent skills there and regularly receive medals. The winners represent Slovakia and our school in other international competitions.

We cooperate with other vocational schools in the green sector in Slovakia and the EU. This cooperation allows students and teachers to gain new skills, knowledge and get to know other cultures. The school has participated in the ERASMUS+ programme with many projects. More than 150 students of the school had the possibility to participate in these mobilities in the past.

The school actively cooperates with EUROPEA Slovakia. This cooperation is very beneficial for our students and teachers. Thanks to the cooperation we have more new professional opportunities for our students and teachers. Our highest gratitude and appreciation to EUROPEA Slovakia and EUROPEA International – we are grateful for your support!
