The Elementary School Act promotes an intercultural approach to school activities, together with the appreciation of Slovenian culture and tradition. In elementary schools, some of the mandatory subjects – Slovenian language, Society, Geography, History, German language – include intercultural education. Interculturalism and tolerance are also covered by optional subjects such as Philosophy, Religion and Ethics and Civic Education. Intercultural education also includes modules about the cultures of other communities living in Slovenia. See also chapter 5.1 as the arts and cultural education encompasses an intercultural dimension as well.
