Luka Jovanović, a student of Savremena Gimnazija, won first place in the national swimming championship in the category of I and II-grade high school students

On 21 February, the national school swimming championship was held in Niš. Luka Jovanović, a first-grade student, represented Savremena Gimnazija in the category of I and II-grade high school students. He competed in the 100 metres dolphin, winning first place in the country and the gold medal with an individual time of 58 seconds!

Luka showed the calmness, focus and concentration that top athletes possess

I am very proud of Luka. What makes this success even greater is the fact that he didn't swim in his own discipline, but wanted to try another one – dolphin style. He was also brilliant in the city competition, and his swimming time in Niš at the national competition was even better! He showed the calmness, focus and concentration that top athletes possess! I am convinced that in the coming years, he will achieve results that we will remember and celebrate, said Stefan Radojičić, professor of physical and health education.

It was not easy, but I believed in myself

I am beyond happy and satisfied! This is not my discipline, but I wanted to try it because I like dolphin style. It was not easy, but I believed in myself and that brought me success, said our champion Luka Jovanović.

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
