Wednesday, June 16, 2021
The sports props for the yard of the separate classroom for the Jevrem Obrenović Elementary School, which was made possible by LUKOIL SRBIJA as part of this year's socially responsible projects in its wish to contribute to a healthy and complete development of children, brought great joy to the pupils of this village school. Jasmina Bogojević, acting principal of the school, received the donation from the company’s HR Director Ana Janković, in the presence of the school faculty and representatives of the local community.
On behalf of all students, Tea, a fourth grade student, thanked LUKOIL for the donation: "Training devices will contribute to our better physical activity and pleasure. We wish there were more humane people who thought about children and who wanted to make them happy."
Acting school principal, Jasmina Bogojević pointed out that this place is connected with rich history and it is of great importance that a separate school secton in Mišar, located near the renovated museum, which brings the glorious Serbian past to life, is saved. “New content for the students means a lot to us, which you can clearly see on their happy faces", said Mrs. Bogojević and handed over a work by Sara Bojić, an eighth-grade student and the winner of many Republic fine arts competitions.
"In this way, two jubilees have met - the centenary of the school's work and the 30-year anniversary of LUKOIL's operations. We want to be active participants in the lives of all local communities in which we operate, and these are the best occasions because they are investment in children and the youth. In a series of humanitarian projects we are implementing this year, we are provided with great assistance from colleagues on the field, our partners at gas stations who pointed out institutions and places where LUKOIL SRBIJA’s support was needed", Ana Janković said.
Out of the 900 pupils attending the Jevrem Obrenović Elementary School, scattered over several facilities within the territory of Šabac, 82 of them are diligent students attending first to fourth grade, and 25 of them are in pre-school.
The elementary school in Mišar this year marks a great jubilee - a whole century of work. Exactly 100 years ago, 121 Mišar residents gave money to build a village school, while one of them gave up his land as well.
