The big news from Serbia is that EUROPEA Agricultural School Šumatovac (Aleksinac) changed its name to Biotechnology School Šumatovac!!

They have also introduced some new courses to make the school more attractive to students. And, despite these troubled pandemic times, they tried to go on with the internationalisation of their institution and stay in touch with their friends and colleagues from abroad.

They have had an amazing cooperation with several partners for years and because of the situation, they were not able to manage the usual student exchanges or study visits.

So, they came up with their plan B!

This Monday Biotechnology School Šumatovac from Aleksinac, organized a web conference named “Development of international cooperation of secondary schools”. The participants were two schools from Bulgaria, two partners from Croatia and one from Slovenia. It was also possible to watch the conference on YouTube, so, many more teachers from these schools were able to join in.

Some of the discussed topics were: organization of schoolwork in current conditions, student exchange – previous experiences, school projects that are being currently  implemented and plans for further work and cooperation between schools.

They can’t wait for the pandemic to end so that we can proceed with our plans and activities.

May it be soon 🙂
