The aim of the research is to explore and compare the participation of students in sections, and their interest (realization, motivation, satisfaction), as well as of parents in extracurricular activities. Google Questionnaires (for students and parents) were used as research instruments. The sample of respondents was formed by surveying 8 students of both genders from each of totally 30 class (N=376 in total), as well as their parents (N=376). Finally, 341 questionnaires were fulfilled by students, and 310 by their parents. The analysis acknowledged that extracurricular activities/sections include significantly more first-class students than second-cycle students. There is more registered students in comparison to those who regularly attend classes, especially at the second cycle of education. In certain aspects of the realization of sections students are satisfied, but there is a possibility for improvements in work. When planning section classes, it is important to envision the ability to place students in the teaching role, developing student self-reliance and self-confidence, but also to encourage peer learning and all students to engage in activities.
