The first shift ends on Friday, June 26th, the second shift has the term from June 29th to July 3rd, and the third group of pupils is scheduled from July 6th to 10th. Since there is a large number of children in shifts, we have hired another physical education professor registered at the Employment Service of the Sarajevo Canton’’, said Musanovic.
As planned, 105 children aged from third to sixth grade will pass this free swimming school that is traditionally being organized by the Municipality Centar in cooperation with the Public Institution Center for Sports and Recreation.
