The Slovenian school partner Primary school France Prešeren Črenšovci already has an enviable tradition. We have recently celebrated 210th anniversary of education in our town. As we built on the good foundations and always pursued quality and development orientation, we are now justifiably proud of the achievements of all pupils and teachers of our institution.

The school district covers 3 villages, Črenšovci, Žižki and Trnje. A total of 56 employees work at the school. The vision that we have set ourselves is: Building safe and creative school with knowledge and responsible actions. Values that we pursue are knowledge, safety, responsibility and creativity. Our mission is to develop curious, critical, unique and unrepeatable individuals with wide knowledge who are responsible to themselves, to the human beings and the environment. We are an educational institution recognized in domestic and international area. Primary School France Prešeren Črenšovci received several national and local awards for its successful work. We have received an award of Blaž Kumerdej for outstanding achievements in the development and introduction of new educational practice in partnership with the National Education Institute Slovenia. We are extremely proud of this state recognition, but at the same time it is a commitment to further creative and innovative work. Another important recognition at the national level is the title the cultural school in 2010. Our school acquired the title on the basis of above average cultural activities. Our school is also a winner of the special Award of the Municipality of Črenšovci for special achievements in the education field and promotion of the place on the national and international level. Each year the school also confirms the title of Eco-school, Healthy School of research by performing different activities.

We have completed all criteria for inclusion in a national network of UNESCO ASP. Through our work and the sense for the elder we got the title SYMBIOSIS school. The last international title, which we are very proud of is the certificate EUROPEAN TALENT POINT.All these acknowledgments are a great honour for our school.But also a commitment that we will perform our mission responsibly in the future.

In 2017 the school is organizing an international symposium on the topic of autonomy for the eleventh year. This year’s symposium is entitled Autonomy of Learning for health. For the tenth year we are organizing Festival of talents for the entire Pomurje region, where both elementary and high school students have the opportunity to present their strengths, to meet, to connect and to learn. Since we are an open school, we are networking and participating in various Erasmus projects in most European countries where our school and kindergarten is involved, and we focus our emphasis on learning for health.
