SLOVENIAN LANGUAGE SCHOOL

We respect Slovenian language, our writers and poets. Among Planica members we have 2 writers: poet and writer Ivan Lapuh and Katarina Vrisk, who prepared an Anthology of Slovenian Musicians in Australia, including  CDs.

The Slovenian Language school is active since 1974 and the library is attached to the school.

Slovenians enjoy plays in the Slovenian language and traditional Slovenian folkdancing.

In Slovenian school Planica were enrolled more than 70 pupils

School was founded by the teacher Lucija Srnec, who was as well the first teacher at the school.
