The School of Vaida-Cămăraş was founded in the 19th century. Nowadays it is a school where teaching goes on in Hungarian language, but throughout the time there were also classes where education went on in Romanian language.
As the building is more than hundred years old, there are only six classrooms and both the laboratories and the sportsground are almost totally missing. However the spacious yard gives the opportunity of further development.
Thanks to the funds the school won within the confines of the Rural Education Project financed by the World Bank and the Government of Romania, in 2006/2007 we founded a library for the school and the community. In this way starting from schoolyear 2005-2006 our school has got 6 classrooms, a computer science laboratory and a library.
Because the number of the classrooms makes it impossible for us to create separate laboratories we transformed the classrooms into laboratories. The transformation was made partly using the equipments that have already existed, partly using materials made by the students themselves for different kinds of extracurricular activities.
Thanks to the fellowship with the community of Wimpassing, Austria, and the collaboration with the Zoltán Kallós Foundation, our school has a television, a videoplayer, a computer equipped with DVD-reader and CD-writer, but also two printers and a multifunctional printer (printer, scanner and copy mashine).
Also due to our fellowships our pupils have the opportunity to play volleyball, football, basketball and table tennis as we have all the equipments that these games require. In this way the sports classes are more efficient, but also more fun for the students.
Our school is also equipped with a refrigerator bought in December, 2005 with the help of the mayor's office. In this way the "Milk and Crescent"-project of the Romanian Government is implemented in accordance of instructions.
In spite of our efforts, the subsistence of the school is being compromised by the descreasing number of the students who are enrolled to our school due to the fact that young people prefer to leave their natal village.
