Croatian city equips elementary school with outdoor classroom and library

Krapina made these additions following the outbreak of COVID

The elementary school Ljudevit Gaj in the Croatian city of Krapina now has an outdoor classroom and library. The new additions are part of the municipality’s investment in the repair and modernisation of the school, which recently experienced damages following an earthquake.

After the outbreak of COVID, teachers encouraged students to stay outdoors, organising lessons in the school playground. Upon learning about this, the City of Krapina cooperated with local businesses to create an outdoor classroom equipped with desks and benches made of wood.

Beyond this, it also installed a small outdoor library that operates on the ‘borrow a book, leave a book’ principle. This library (created by a teacher and eighth-grade student) is made of a wooden barrel and is in the shape of a house.

See the gallery above to view the new additions.
