Since teachers of Krapinsko-zagorska county have shown the interest in having their own branch, our HUPE PR Gordana Bujanić Tretinjak organised a meeting on 13th September 2017.
We are thankful for the support of Vocational school Bedekovčina that hosted this event. The headteacher Vera Hrvoj welcomed HUPE and said she would gladly give the support to our meetings in the future.
HUPE President Sanja Božinović welcomed teachers who were able to join us and wished the branch a lot of success. There were 20 teachers present at this meeting (some 10 more appologised for not being able to attend - they had classes and their headteachers didn't want to let them attend the meeting - but they promised to be active members of the branch in the future.)
The teachers who were present unanimously voted Petra Končić the branch president, and we wish her a lot of success in presiding HUPE Zagorje.
There were two workshops held at the meeting; one by Ana Galac (teacher at Pučko otvoreno učilište Velika Gorica) and the other by Sanja Ivoš (head of primary school department at Školska knjiga).
Ana Galac presented her very successful and inspiring workshop called English in Town about taking students to town to use English in real life situations. Sanja Ivoš gave a very interesing talk Teaching Life Skills, on how the skills students need for life have been changing over the past few decades and what skills are considered the most important at the moment.
We wish HUPE Zagorje a lot of success in their work, many great workshops and talks and a lot of networking and sharing of great ideas and positive experience.
