Designs for a new public elementary school in Gerlinci


Gyula Svab



In Gerlinci, the State Public Elementary School was opened on September 1, 1899. Previously, children from Gerlinci went to school in Fikšinci, Pertoci, Cankova and Klöch (Austria). The classes were first held at private houses. Designing the new school building began in 1907, and the school was officially opened on September 1, 1910. The new school was single-class, with two classrooms on the ground floor, two teacher apartments on the first floor and a cellar. In the 1960s, the school became a subdivision of the Cankova Primary School. The school in Gerlinci was closed in 1971, the children were transferred to Cankova. Today, the former school building is privately owned.
