It’s a big day for us! We don’t want to boast much, but students and teachers from Montenegrin Gymnasium “Slobodan Škerović” participated in International Philosophy Olympiad held in Rotterdam and achieved great results! Special congratulations go to Danilo Đukanović who won Honorable mention in Essay writing competition among students from 45 countries. The satisfaction is even greater knowing that the International Philosophy Olympiad is one of the two most prestigious high school level competitions in the world.
The International Philosophy Olympiad was held in the city of Rotterdam in Netherlands, from 25th to 28th of May 2017th. Students Ilija Miljkovac, Danilo Đukanović and teachers Anita Milinović, Teodora Dedić, and Jasminka Milošević were part of the Montenegrin team. Aside from competing in Essay writing Competition, they also took part in many workshops and enjoyed a diverse culture and art program. The main theme of this year’s Olympiad was Tolerance, and it was integrated into every lecture and workshop.

We believe that by helping successful young students attend professional development opportunities abroad, we help them widen their views, share and receive knowledge from a multicultural and multinational community, and above all, give way to the progress of the society as a whole.
