Thanks to the NIS program, a video surveillance system for the Mechanical and Traffic School in Čačak
The caravan of NIS’s “Communities Together” program continues to tour schools throughout Serbia. In order to accelerate the development of the community with its investment, but also to provide support to the educational system, the company NIS provided funds in the amount of 800,000 dinars to the Mechanical and Traffic School Čačak within last year’s cycle of the “Communities Together” program.
With these funds, a modern video surveillance system for the school was procured and installed, which enabled greater safety for students and employees, but also raised awareness of the importance of keeping school property.
Vladan Milić, Deputy Mayor of Čačak, emphasized the importance of cooperation between the city and the company NIS in the field of socially responsible business.
“Cooperation between NIS and the City of Čačak began in 2013, and on this occasion I thank the company NIS for choosing Čačak and for eight years in a row allocating money that we invest in numerous projects, including the arrangement of parks and cultural institutions. Last year, ten schools received 800,000 dinars each, which they used to purchase computer equipment as well as video surveillance. In the Mechanical and Traffic School in particular, it is about modern video surveillance that will significantly contribute to increasing the level of safety of both students and professors. In addition to this, NIS, in cooperation with the City of Čačak, has invested money in another high school, the Technical School, but also several other city schools – Filip Filipović, Ratko Mitrović, Sveti Sava and Tanasko Rajić, but also two rural schools that have more students, which shows that they take equal care of schools in both urban and rural areas, “said Milic.
Dušan Tomić, Head of the Wholesale Sector Čačak at NIS, said on this occasion that investing in the community and youth is a priority for the company.
“I am very pleased to be here today at the Mechanical and Traffic School in Čačak, to which our company has provided funds for the purchase of video surveillance equipment, which will certainly contribute to the safety of employees and students. The focus of the project “Communities together” in the past year was the safety of schools and digitalization of teaching processes, and within the entire project, of 114.5 million dinars, eight million was directed to the city of Cacak, ie funds were distributed to 10 primary and secondary schools a total of 7,000 students. In the future, the company NIS will continue to support Čačak, as well as all other cities and municipalities that are part of the project, “Tomić pointed out.
Mirko Lazović, director of the Mechanical and Traffic School, stated that the new video surveillance, thanks to a donation from NIS, will improve the safety of students and teachers of the school.
“I am very glad that the promotion of the” Communities Together “project is being celebrated in our school. Last year, we participated in a competition aimed at improving the educational process, that is, improving the video surveillance system for our school, which has three separate buildings, a yard of over 9,000 square meters and a driving training ground for our students. With the realization of this project, we have installed 24 modern cameras in all important places in the school, and having in mind the size of the space, it is clear how much the new video surveillance will contribute to the safety of both students and teachers. “
The Mechanical and Traffic School in Čačak is attended by about 1,100 students, for whom classes are held in 4 physically separate facilities. The total area of the land on which the school is located covers an area of over eight thousand square meters, within which there is a school training ground for driving students, as well as an open field for various sports.
Precisely because of this structure of the facility, the school requires a quality video surveillance system, because it is almost impossible to follow all the activities in the school that concern the safety of students, teachers and property.
Čačak has been a part of the “Communities Together” program since 2013, and until today, 64 million dinars have been invested in the City, of which 42 projects have been realized.
Only during 2020, the company NIS supported the work of 10 primary and secondary schools from the territory of the city of Čačak, providing them with funds in the total amount of 8 million dinars for the needs of improving the digitalization of the teaching process and the safety of children in schools.
