On the occasion of the official school opening, the Assistant Minister for preschool, primary and high school education in Republika Srpska, Mrs Radmila Kocic Cucic accompanied by director of “EFT-Rudnik i Termoelektrana Stanari” Mr Savo Mirkovic visited the elementary school “Desanka Maksimovic” in Cvrtkovci, municipality of Stanari, on 27 August 2019.

In 2019 the EFT company allocated 120 000 BAM for the purpose of reconstructing this elementary school prior to new school year beginning in September. According to Mr Mirkovic, this is the third school in the area of Stanari that has been completely reconstructed with EFT donation. The reconstruction activities covered the ceiling, walls and sewage system repair, replacement of doors and windows, installation of thermal insulation, roofing and placement of new fence in the schoolyard. The school finally got the heating system installations. This “turn-key” reconstruction project supervised by EFT experts has been completed on 8 August, said Mr Mirkovic.
