The district four-year school Citluk has been operating as an outpost of Ivan Mažuranić Central Primary School for decades, and is attended mainly by students from this local community. In recent years, there has been a marked increase in child enrollment. For example, as many as 54 children were enrolled this year, including 15 first-graders, which made it necessary to teach in two shifts. Although this is an extremely commendable demographic, on the other hand it poses a challenge to teach in a facility whose capacity has been built for other times and the number of children.
Therefore, the Municipality of Posusje started drafting project documentation, and later this year, in the concrete realization of the rehabilitation and upgrading of the building of the Čitluk Regional School.
Phase I of the project is underway, which involves earthworks, the construction of a sewer system and the rough construction of a new facility in addition to the existing one. The completion of this phase is scheduled for the first half of August.
The plan is then to continue to complete the spaces planned for new classrooms, the assembly room, toilets and common areas and start furnishing the furniture.
This would significantly improve the teaching and living conditions of students in this school and open up the possibility of teaching in one shift, which is the European standard.
Through projects like these, the Municipality of Posusje seeks to provide the local community with better living conditions in its place.
The works were visited today by the mayor of the municipality Branko Bago, accompanied by the director of the central elementary school Ivan Mažuranić Zvonimir Širić, as well as representatives of the local community and contractors. It is worth mentioning that the rehabilitation and upgrading of this regional school is realized with the partnership of the Municipality with the Central State Office for Reconstruction and Housing of the Republic of Croatia.
