A special stress will be laid on examples of good practice at successful schools and preschools, as well as on dual education and entrepreneurship development.

Many results and achievements of the Ministry will be showcased across a number of projects it has currently been engaged in and which have contributed greatly to the school’s involvement in contemporary social trends.

The Ministry invites all visitors to both exchange and share their expectations and ideas so that TOGETHER WE WOULD HAVE THE SCHOOL WE WANT.
