The Council of Ministers accepted a new government program called the Happy School Program, which is to help finance educational aids for schools and equipment for school playgrounds. To facilitate the psychophysical development of our youngest students it is important to meet their physical activity needs. This is the purpose of the Happy School program. It was launched to help schools make sure that children are as active as during the standard early education phase.
The program is to provide financial support for the purchase – or reimbursement – of educational aids and playground equipment (including the costs of landscaping, safe surfaces and purchase of recreational equipment).
The program is to be carried out from 2009 until 2014. The schedule determines, inter alia, the dates that school principals and authorities can file applications.
