THE STORY OF OUR SCHOOL

School for Horticulture and Visual Arts Celje is situated in the shade of old plane trees and surrounded by various plants and greens of our school park.

The school has had a long tradition of more than 65 years in educating pupils and students in the field of horticulture and floristry as well as more than 10 years in the field of visual merchandising and also 6 years of the post-secondary higher vocational programme in the field of horticulture. This year Higher Vocational College starts with a new post-secondary programme i.e. Visual Communication Design.

If you ask our students about their favourite classrooms, they will surely not think for a long time to reply. However, you can see them for yourselves - if you take a walk around our school park or enter the vivid and picturesque school corridors, pass school window displays and graffiti in front of the wardrobe lockers, or if you enter our newly equipped library and classroom for flower arranging. You will be amazed by all those places.

Those are the places where our students are educated for a wide palette of general and professional knowledge and competences, which are often shown very successfully at numerous competitions in Slovenia and abroad. We have to mention that the doors of our school are also open for foreign students from different European countries. We also have a 10-year experience in international cooperation with schools from about 15 European countries.

Our school is definitely a second home to many young people. As we are a small school noone is left unnoticed or left behind. Students in our school are not just numbers, but individual personalities. Every student is given a chance to show his or her abilities and everybody is given the opportunity to gain the best professional education and training for their future jobs and careers.


THE SCHOOL PARK

The park's areas are interesting in all four seasons. The park as a whole is informally designed with rare, special or mighty ornamental trees, blooming bushes, vegetables, annuals, perennials, fruit trees and a vine.

There are more than 500 different plant species that have been collected on 3,5 ha large area for over 40 years.

School Park is the most beautiful classroom, it represents an inspiring and rewarding wellness space for entertainment and relaxation.

 LEARNING TRAIL FOR THE BLIND, VISUALLY IMPAIRED AND SIGHTED

Come and experience our park! The Learning Trail offers a fun and educational experience.

Have you ever had a scarf on your eyes? Want to spend a short time without propelling your look around the area? Are you tempted to explore space or simply want to relax after a busy day?

On the Learning Trail for the blind, visually impaired and sighted we prepare an unforgettable experience, as we focus on getting to know the surroundings with plants with all your senses. The visitors touch the plants, taste them, smell them, hear different sounds and orientate themselves in space. The best time to visit the park is from April to October on warm and sunny days.
