THE SCHOOL WAS OPEN

Primary school "Ljubica Radosavljević – Nada" was founded on July 5th and inaugurated on September 7. The design was made by the architect Ljiljana Jeremić based on the newest developments in school architecture.

1972

Due to the constant rise of population and lack of schools, at the beginning of 1970s the official decision was made to build an additional primary school in Zaječar. The City Council founded the school on July 5th 1972 and the school was opened on City Liberation Day on September 7th. The school was designed by the architect Ljiljana Jeremić, following the newest developments in school architecture. The building has 12 classrooms, a workshop, a sports hall, its own library, a separate hall for celebrations, a dining room, etc. In the first year, it had 640 pupils enrolled in 8 grades. The school can freely be named an inclusive one, since it has for many years the experience of schooling children with different difficulties and physical and mental challenges, as well as the children with no parents or from socially challenged families.

The school was named after a teacher and national hero, Ljubica Radosavljević (1915-1943) who was, together with Ljubomir Nešić, Dobrivoje Radosavljević – Bobi and Simeonović brothers, the leader of the uprising during World War II. As a teacher, she worked in schools in villages of Podvrška and Slatina, where she was also politically active. In 1940 she married Dobrivoje Radosavljević – Bobi. She participated in different diversion activities and battles in the Timok Region. Nevertheless, her body was too weak to sustain the war efforts, and she died in a hospital in Belgrade in April of 1943.
