“It is our conviction that this push for quality international education in Bosnia-Herzegovina can only succeed if it is introduced into at least two schools – hence our proposal for simultaneous action in Mostar and Sarajevo. Mostar will be the important torchbearer, but should not be alone. The team is also convinced of the potential for very significant further development. The key to long term success lies however in the successful launch of a pilot scheme. The re-opening of the Mostar Gymnasium offers an unrepeatable opportunity. It must be taken.” – Besse, Torsti and Sutcliffe in September 2004
