110 years of dominican gymnasium in Bol
At the Bol of Brač, on November 10th, a scientific gathering on 110 years of schooling and the founding of the Dominican Gymnasium
This year marks the 110th anniversary of the founding of the Dominican high school in Bol on Brač (1907 – 2017). This is an important anniversary for Bol because the Dominicans just brought school to school and sent many generations of intellectuals and scientists to the world. This will be held on November 10, at 11.30 am in Bol, at the Cultural Center, to hold a scientific colloquium “Dominicans and Schooling in Bol on Brač” organized by Croatian Studies at the University of Zagreb.
At this conference about Dominican education in Croatia, the academician Franjo Šanjek will speak. Dr. Sc. Zvonko Džankić will give a brief historical review of the Dominican Grammar School in Bol. About the education of Dominican professors in Friborg in Switzerland will speak to prof. dr. sc. Anto Gavrić. Dr. Sc. Renata Burai will present the reports on the pedagogical supervision of the Dominican high school in the 1930s, and dr. Sc. Tanja Baranliterarno-journalistic achievements of Dominican high school students in Bol. Finally doc. dr. sc. Marinko Šišak is talking about Bolian dominics and building a national consciousness.
Bol High School and the Bol Culture Center will celebrate this anniversary in December with a special cultural program at the Cultural Center, and celebrate the long history of grammar school in Bol.

Brač is an island which can be reached by sea and air. Here are some basics.

There are two ferry lines connecting Brač with a land.
First is in Supetar, connecting Brač with Split, and the second is on Sumartin, connecting Brač with Makarska. There is a third port that can be reached by regular local boat lines, and that is Bol, on the south part of the island. Here, you can reach Brač from Split, or from a neighbouring island Hvar.
