The school year starts on the 11th of September and finishes on the 15th of June.
For the students of the 1st grade of primary school the school year starts about one week earlier , so that they can adjust better. During this week the students get to know the “big “ school better, get to know their teacher and classmates, draw, play , adjust – so that from the first day of school they are ready. The desks in 1st grade are quite low and look like the kindergarten desks , so that the children feel better and can adapt easier. At the same time there are revision lessons for the students of 5th grade.
