Visiting the Institution for children and youth „Sremčica” as a part of the „Parents at Work” project

A group of Savremena Gimnazija students visited on Friday, 20 May the Institution for children and youth Sremčica, as a part of the Parents at Work project. The students of all four years who had expressed the interest to visit Sremčica were led by school psychologists Marija Janićijević and Aleksandra Rakić.

Meeting professionals and learning about their career path

The Parents at Work project enables our students to visit workplaces of our students’ parents, allowing them to meet professionals in different areas, to learn about their career paths and experiences. Thus, our students gain information that can help them decide about the course of their further education.

The Institution for children and youth Sremčica is a social welfare institution which provides accommodation and care for children and youth who are developmentally challenged as well as for adults with intellectual disability and communication difficulties. Marina Vidojević, our student’s parent and the director of the Institution, organised the visit and let us meet the people there, allowing Savremena Gimnazija students to learn how the Institution started, the way it operates and what professions are necessary to make it run smoothly.

New acquaintances bring valuable experience

Our students met the therapists, doctor and special education teachers. Our students met and spent some time with the institution residents, gaining valuable experience. The visit produced strong impressions and our students were grateful as they had had the chance to spend the day at the Institution for children and youth Sremčica and learn about its activities.


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
