Lukashenko opens new school in Bobruisk

Lukashenko opens new school in Bobruisk

BOBRUISK, 1 September (BelTA) - Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko took part in the opening of secondary school No.35 in Bobruisk on Knowledge Day, 1 September, BelTA has learned.

The head of state said that 1 September is a special day for him and he always attends back-to-school celebrations with great excitement, no matter where the ceremonies take place, be it an old or a new school, a technical college or a higher education institution, in a village, a district center or the capital city.

“I remember myself both a student and a teacher. I know how parents feel at these moments. Each of you and also me, as the President of the country, is entering another period in life with our own tasks, plans and expectations. The entire Belarus is tuning to a new working rhythm. Because children are the most important thing in life. You, who first stepped into this temple of knowledge, and you who are preparing for independent life today, are setting the pace for the entire country. You are the foundation, the future of any nation,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

The residents of the young district of Bobruisk are welcoming a new academic year with a new school. The institution was built in less than a year, and the president named its opening a great gift to both the country and the city. “We planned to open this school in December. But both the builders and the local authorities tried very hard to finish the work by 1 September. The saying goes “a stitch in time saves nine”. It was also important for you to start the new academic year in a new school. After all, everything starts here, at school, both our conscious life and the life of the city. Any city lives and develops when there are conditions for giving birth, upbringing and developing children,” the head of state stressed.

Aleksandr Lukashenko emphasized that the improvement of infrastructure - from maternity hospitals, clinics and educational institutions to children's playgrounds and sports stadiums - is the main thing the government's small and medium-sized city programs are focused on.

During the inauguration ceremony Sergei Vlasik, Director General of Bobruisk Large-Panel Housing Plant, handed over to the president a symbolic key to the school. As the head of state said, it took less than a year to build the facility. “Take care of it; it cost a lot,” the Belarusian leader said.

Aleksandr Lukashenko, in turn, handed the key to director of the school Tatiana Vasilevskaya. She pointed out that the new school meets all modern requirements. “This once again proves that we are united together. We have common goals, plans, and endeavors,” the school director said.
