All schools in the municipality of Lovech have completed current repairs, the amount for them is BGN 146,103, announced the Deputy Mayor for Education Vencislav Hristov. In October, the construction of the new wing of the Language School will be completed. This amount also includes funds for new software in schools, etc.
The worrying thing is that, according to the estimated calculations, twice as much heating funds will be needed in schools and kindergartens. If BGN 463,000 was paid in December, BGN 955,000 will be needed by the end of this year. These funds are provided for in the expenditure standards for the maintenance of schools. However, it is not known whether they are sufficient, because the price of gas changes every month, said Hristov. There is no option to switch to alternative heating in the city schools, only the schools in Malinovo and Alexandrovo do not use gas.
For the first year, the classes in the eighth grade are full, the responsible deputy mayor also announced. There are 283 first-graders this year, 12 less than last year. There are 908 children in kindergartens. The total number of students in the municipality is 5021 people.
First grade children traditionally receive a gift book on September 15, with special knowledge and written personally by the mayor, Kornelia Marinova. This year it’s the “Welcome First Grader” booklet, which has pictures and text about important events and people.
