Savremena’s students successfully pass the preliminary round of the Global HIPPO English competition

International School Savremena wishes to provide its students with various extracurricular activities. For this reason, Saturday, 3 March was dedicated to the Global HIPPO English language competition.

This was an opportunity for our students to express their knowledge and compete with their peers from around the world. Savremena promotes participating in various competitions since it can help the students in their future education, as well as in their time management skills, giving them a sense of true responsibility.


It has become a tradition for Savremena’s students to participate in the HIPPO English Without Borders competition, and International School Savremena takes pride in the fact that this year, out of 9 Savremena’s students who participated, Anja Gajić, Aleksandra Grbović Bitić and Petar Tomić qualified for the semi-final round of the competition.

Next stop on the road to success

Savremena’s students can look forward to the semi-finals held at the end of March, and ultimately the finals of the competition which will be held in May 2019, when they will have the opportunity to compete with their peers from other European countries, such as Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Macedonia, Montenegro, Slovenia and many more. The competition, organised by the HIPPO Association within Pearson International Qualifications, represents an excellent opportunity for all students to show their competence and knowledge.


The Hippo English Without Borders competition is an international competition which promotes the English language, challenges students around the globe to compete and showcase their English skills, and improves cooperation between teachers. The competition encourages the development of a shared sense of identity and integration, and serves as a role model for young people living together as one community.

The main goal is to create and nourish friendly relations, international understanding and a spirit of sporting competitiveness between young people interested in the English language from all around the world.

International School Savremena would like to congratulate all our students on participating in this global event, and we will continue to root for them in the semi-finals in March!

Contemporary in any sense of the word, our school offers functional knowledge and quality preparation for tertiary education in Serbia and abroad. Implementing modern and creative teaching in the classroom, where the teachers’ pedagogy and students’ performance are aligned with the highest academic standards for the high-school finals, our school develops linguistic, mathematical, scientific, artistic, cultural, technical and ICT competence, which is a prerequisite for further education and professional development. Teaching is supported by the interactive whiteboards and educational software, whereas practice exercises research and critical thinking.
