Photos from school year opening in September 2013
The original primary school of Zajezova was closed down in 1977. In 2007 a group of locals reopened the school as a one-class school for grades 1-4. It is one of Slovakia’s smallest schools, counting 14 pupils in the school year 2014/2015. The small amount of pupils gives it a cozy family atmosphere but also a form of education that is adjusted to the needs of the individual pupils. This form of work however is very demanding on the teacher, therefore she has support from the pupils‘ parents when teaching several subjects, like English, PE, Informatics and arts.
The parents are involved in the overall management of the school – the book keeping, house keeping, renovation works etc. The school is being supported by the civic association Zivica, who runs it and the municipality of Pliešovce that owns the school building.
