Workshops Better Together on discrimination-related issues at Savremena Gimnazija

The workshops meant for secondary school students and organised by the European Federation of Psychology Students’ Associations were held at Savremena Gimnazija as a part of the campaign Better Together.

The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness among young people of the problems induced by discrimination whether related to race, gender, religion, health or at the personal level. The workshops also had as their goals to help development of empathy for discriminated people as well as to encourage the young to take initiative and actively engage in fighting discrimination and creating inclusive communities. It is the fifth time this campaign has been carried out in Serbia and another 12 European countries.

Our secondary school students had the opportunity to extend their knowledge of the following topics:

  • racism;
  • religious and gender-related discrimination;
  • discrimination of people with disability;
  • peer violence.

The students worked on developing strategies to overcome discrimination.

Congrats to Nikolina Jovanović, a Year 2 Savremena student!

Nikolina Jovanović, a Year 2 Savremena student participated in the workshops. This year she demonstrated a lot of enthusiasm and was active in a number of extracurricular activities, which helped her broaden her knowledge.
We want to commend Nikolina’s endeavour in gaining new experiences.

I am extremely pleased and proud to be the parent of a Savremena student. During my first encounter with the school management, when I asked about my child’s potential enrolment, I saw how much love, enthusiasm and professionalism you put in your work. I was impressed by your approach, ideas and methods. I couldn’t believe something like this existed in our country! It doesn’t take long to realise that this is a school you would recommend to everyone. Creativity, modern technology, top-quality education, and most of all, the humaneness that can be seen throughout the school, make it truly different and worthy of its name – Savremena Gimnazija. With such an approach, the success of this school and, consequently, our children’s success, is unavoidable. Congratulations! Jelena Đorđević, Andrija’s mum
