Primary School and Kindergarten Cerklje on Krki

Slowly meandering through the lowlands of Krško polje flows a river. In the curve of the river by the ancient Roman road stands Cerklje ob Krki. Besides the original core of the settlement, the square by the church, a new centre was formed around the school building with the village store and the post office. The time-worn school building, dating back to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and a more recently added kindergarten were the only educational facilities for the neighbouring villages. It was for this reason that a public competition for a new school building was issued in 2014.
