Pozývame Vás na ďalší ročník zaježovskej Letnej slávnosti na sekierskych lúkach. Bude v podobnom duchu ako predchádzajúce roky, takže tí, ktorí tu už boli, vedia, na čo sa môžu tešiť. Podrobný program nájdete v prílohe
The former farm building in the part of Zaježová called Polomy has been serving as a base for educational activities since 1991. It is being rented by the local civic associations, as well as NGOs and individuals to host various events – seminars, environmental education for schools, dance workshops and retreats.
New inhabitants of Zajezova valley and places in its close neighbourhood have brought new life into dying out small village. People join efforts to improve quality of life here, to prevent problems, which caused depolpulation in second half of 20th century. They organize common work on public projects (bus stop reparation, waste collection, tree planting, playground making etc.), informal parties and bigger seasonal celebrations, common holidays and weekend trips of families, local activism (nature protection, waste issues,...) and so on.
The original primary school of Zajezova was closed down in 1977. In 2007 a group of locals reopened the school as a one-class school for grades 1-4. It is one of Slovakia’s smallest schools, counting 14 pupils in the school year 2014/2015. The small amount of pupils gives it a cozy family atmosphere but also a form of education that is adjusted to the needs of the individual pupils. This form of work however is very demanding on the teacher, therefore she has support from the pupils‘ parents when teaching several subjects, like English, PE, Informatics and arts.
Pictures of Sona Sadlonova from february 2014 describe atmosphere of small carnival celebration. The event was organized for local pre-school and school kids by international volunteers from Eco-community Sekier (EVS) and teachers.
A group of Zaježová inhabitants who actively climb recently started a climbing club. They train with local kids, some of them even participate in climbing competitions. They plan to build a climbing wall in a community centre so they limit travelling to city (60km away). It should be space for training and it should be used also by local school for physical education (the school is very small so it does not have a gym). The people have already invested money and time into this project, but they still miss resources. So they started to collect money to support this idea.
Asia, South America, Cuba, films from the „one world festival“, screenings and discussions with the makers of the films „Vlčie hory“ (The Wolf Mountains) and „Slameny dom“ (The Strawbale House), clown performances, archery, horse riding, exhibitions of paintings and photographs and so on.
This page was created and is maintained thanks to support from local NGOs and part of local inhabitants who belong to Zaježka Community. Zaježka Community is informal group of local active people, who cooperate and participate on social life in Zaježová.
