KACUNI, Bosnia, Teachers at an elementary school in the village of Kacuni in central Bosnia have used their summer holiday to build an open-air classroom outside their school to the joy of their students and local community.
“Our model offers a breath of fresh air both for teachers and students. It allows us to breathe, speak and work freely. I am so proud of it, “Mirza Begovic, a language teacher at the Kacuni school, which has 1,000 students, told Reuters.
The idea of an open-air classroom had been in teachers’ minds for a while, but the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated their project – which began with minimum funds but quickly attracted help and donations. The mayor gave construction material.
The classroom was completed within a month, in time to welcome children returning to school after months of online learning. It will be used as long as the weather allows.
