Saint Sava as a school Slava has been celebrated since the 19th century. According to some data, a school fund was established in Zemun in Serbia in 1812, which stipulated that Saint Sava be marked as a protector of Serbian schools. Furthermore, in 1840, it was decided that the saint be declared a school Slava. The tradition was celebrated until 1945, when it was abolished by the decision of the Communist authorities. The tradition was restored in the early nineties.
