Cooperation of School ''9 maj'' and ''Maštalište''

Protocol of Cooperation between Zrenjanin City and Primary and Secondary School "9.maj" and Children and Youth Center "Maštalište" was signed  today in the City Hall.
The Mayor Ivan Bošnjak, M.Sci. says that, as had been promised at the beginning of  the academic  year, the  essential issue was to  improve the working conditions
- Today we have included "Maštalište", but naturally this is only the first step of our activities – said Bošnjak.

Coordinator of  "Maštalište" Milica Velimirović points out that the cooperation   has been lasting for  twelve years but  this is the first time it  has been  made official, as a part of a big compaign organised by  young people from "Maštalište" referring to children's rights
- In "Maštalište" we have daily stay for slightly  disabled children, as well as activities for children from regular  primary and secondary school and they all work  together contributing to the local community. So, today we are verifying something we have been doing for  more  than a decade – said she.
The Principal  of  "9. maj" school Snežana Oluški says the expectations were reached a long time ago, and this Protocol signing is now just a symbolic act to  demonstrate a joint  care for children and  youth  of the City, School "9.maj" and "Maštalište".
Also the Principal thanked Milica Velimirović  who fully understood and cooperated several years ago when it  was arranged for young people to be transferred to "Maštalište" when they were too old to stay at school. These young people work in the garden there, learn to weave and  do other  craft work. She added that the visit of the Mayor was  very important  for them which meant  an important  kind of support. Also she thanked to media  for their support. This is the right way to demolish psycho-social barriers of prejudice and to open a path to  people's hearts – she said.
