Rita Vaszilová

Entrepreneur in pet keeping trade
2nd year

"Thanks to my studies I gained a new perspective on breeding, knowledge, but also valuable experience that I could not get anywhere else. I think anyone who has a relationship with animals should think about studying in this field at this school."

Vízi Bálint

2nd year

"My studies at this school are made more enjoyable by good professors, a relaxed group of classmates, and the spice of my life here are the falconry classes, which I can eventually enjoy while hunting. And the well-equipped school gym :-)"

Zuzana Perichtová

Confectioner cook
Graduate 1998

"The school has strengthened my relationship with baking, which for me is a joy, a hobby and a relaxation - it's a love for life. Even after 20 years since I graduated, I am still happy to come back here with a smile on my lips and I am glad that one of my children has decided to follow this path too."

Lilla Tóthová

"I found everything I needed at this school - working with animals and machinery, falconry, bees, driving licence, I tried pottery, working with wool. In the future I plan to take over my father's farm and be as good a person as he is."
