Students of Savremena gimnazija Visit

On Wednesday, 22 May, students of Savremena gimnazija, under the initiative of their sociology teacher Ana Brkić Jovanović, visited the organization "Sounds of the Heart". This organization includes a café and a workshop run by a team of 33 colleagues, 26 of whom are individuals with developmental disabilities.

During the visit, students had the opportunity to learn about the functioning of the employees, enjoy drinks served on a donation basis, and purchase products made independently by the employees. In a pleasant and beautiful setting, with great hospitality from everyone at "Sounds of the Heart", students shared experiences and emotions, supported the organization's work, and discussed all aspects of this type of socially engaged entrepreneurship with their teacher.

Impressions of the Savremena gimnazija Students

The visit left a strong impression on the students, who expressed a desire for such visits to be repeated. Some students shared their impressions, highlighting the importance of support and understanding for individuals with developmental disabilities, as well as the value of such initiatives that contribute to inclusion and social awareness.

"The visit to 'Sounds of the Heart' was really nice, we had a great time, and I was really glad we visited them and had coffee with them. They do their job excellently. Their products are very nice, and their café is very lovely." - Nevena Stamenović, IV-3

"The atmosphere is wonderful, the music is relaxing and not too loud. The staff is professional and very polite, and the products they sell are of very high quality and, in my opinion, very beautiful. All in all, a very nice experience, and I warmly recommend others to visit!" - Dorotea Korać, IV-1

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
