Public Institution Elementary School “Josif Pančić” Kozica
Recognizing the need of the Public Institution Elementary School „Josif Pančić“ in Kozica, Oštra Luka Municipality, for the specific educational tools, the staff members of the EKI Prijedor Office donated the School with modern smart boards, a microscope, geometry tools, and other educational accessories.
The Elementary School “Josif Pančić” is located in remote rural area with no telecommunications or access to Internet, and with rather weak mobile telephones coverage. The School is around 40km far from Prijedor, and some 25 km from their Municipality of Oštra Luka. The access to School is via poorly maintained dirt road, and due to such geographic position, the School earned a special status with the Republic of Srpska Ministry of Education. The School is attended by some 50 students, and some of them walk up to 8km to get to School. Very scarce funds have been invested in the school building and in the teaching tools and accessories, so the School operates in rather poor conditions.
The staff members and students of the School expressed their gratitude for the valuable gift, which apart from its material value has a greater and deeper importance as they feel that they have not been forgotten although they are so secluded.
