The school buildings were built in 1975, and, they have never had major renovation till now. Thus, there were serious problems such as danger of being injured by the broken joineries. Total number of direct project beneficiaries is about 800 students and 70 teachers and staff in the school.
The Government of Japan attaches importance to the improvement of educational environment in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and has supported more than 90 educational institutions since 1996.
