At a desk in the Brihtna glava primary school

What school did grandma and grandpa go to?

At the Brihtna glava primary school in Radovica near Metlika time is turned back to the 1950s. At old school desks, you will get to know Bela krajina with numerous slim birches and abundant vineyards, as well as natural and cultural heritage of Bela krajina in a witty and relaxed way.
Through humorous interpretation of the heritage of Bela krajina, you shall meet a hearty, good-humoured and hard-working man/woman from Bela krajina. Strict teachers with a stick in their hands and corn
used for disobedient pupils to kneel on it in the corner of a classroom are long gone and forgotten. Together, we will revive the memory of youthful school days of our grandmothers and grandfathers. Like in the old days in school, you will get a “school certificate” at the end of the day. How will you prove yourself? The programme is suitable for adults and children of all ages.

“Brihtna glava” Primary School

In Radovica at Metlika, there is a building of the former primary school, which functioned as an educational establishment by 1976. After longs years, a “proper” school opened its doors here. The conceptual design of Toni Gašperič aroused the interest of the local Andrej Bajuk. With great enthusiasm and interest, he started renovating the room and searching for appropriate objects. This was followed by long-term browsing through the past, collection of old school objects and accessories. A classroom from old times was made, an image from the 1950s. Andrej Bajuk became the headmaster, while a strict comrade teacher was entrusted with teaching. The headmaster Andrej therefore transformed the classroom back into a state it was in the past. By now, it is probably clear that this is a staged scene where the headmaster, the comrade teacher and the school secretary each play their roles; but you, dear pupils, are the most important, sitting with great expectation at a school desk and participating in an hour full of historical and cultural insights of Bela krajina.
