The School Day


Year 2020

On Friday, February 7th, we celebrated the School Day at the Tavankut Cultural Center. There were many performances: the Levanda Klapa from Samobor and the female singing choir of the HKD Napredak - Usora-Tešanj branch. A special moment of the evening was the joint performance of the Levanda Klapa, the HKD Women's Progress Choir and the School Choir.
Besides the guests from Serbia, the program was attended by guests from the Republic of Croatia and the Republic of Hungary, representatives of cultural institutions, representatives of the Croatian community, students, teachers and parents.
At the very beginning of the program, guests were greeted by the principal Stanislava Stantić Prćić, who recalled the meaning and importance of the term school, which is often forgotten today, and comes from the ancient Greek word shola (σχολείο), which primarily referred to leisure time and fun. Rudolf Vujević, the envoy of the President of the Zagreb County Assembly, welcomed all those present.
This was also the first event in the Tavankut Cultural Center after its complete reconstruction.
