Last day of school, we have organized a workshop on which to the participants was presented strategic plan of the hCa youth network B&H for the period 2000-2003, which emerged as a result of the strategic workshop in Kulasi near Prijedor in July 1999.

During the evening activities of the school we had presentations of the youth organizations who have participated in the school work. Also, we have organized a visit to the school participants to the “organization of Croatian youth” municipality Ravne-Brcko, in Gornji Zovik.
