On Friday, March 23, 2012, Minister Milan Markovic, President of the Coordination Body of the Government of the Republic of Serbia for the Municipalities of Presevo, Bujanovac and Medvedja, visited the village of Klenike in the municipality of Bujanovac. The Coordination Body financially supported the construction of an amphitheater at the „Bora Stankovic“elementary school, where all formal events and school social developments will take place. The construction of the amphitheater is an investment worth 12 million dinars that is of enormous importance for developing social life of all the residents of Klenike and of those living in the vicinity.   

The students, teachers and the Principal of “Bora Stankovic” elementary school, as well as the residents of Klenike, welcomed Minister Milan Markovic and Assistant Minister of Education and Science Zoran Kostic. Representatives of the local self-government also attended the event.   

“It is very important that such a facility exists, since this is a place to which residents of 9 more villages gravitate. Children can come and have their performances here.  In addition, a great many other things can be organized here, so that the social life of all local residents could be improved. The quality of social life in small environments depends to a great degree on those who are willing and capable of devising it and on those who are creative. I am asking you to fill these premises with your creativity and numerous developments, thanks to which new knowledge will be acquired and the room for socializing provided.   The construction of the amphitheater began back in 1989, and it was important to us to complete it, so that we could send a positive message to the residents of the region”, Milan Markovic said.  

Zoran Kostic, Assistant Minister of Education and Science, pointed out that “the construction of the amphitheatre indicates that it is necessary to put in a lot of effort into acquiring knowledge, so that children could live, study and work in much better conditions”.   

The amphitheater was opened on the occasion of marking the 165th. Anniversary of the school, which is, apart from students from the village of Klenike, attended by students from 9 more nearby villages.
