“Lessons of courage were held at Suvorov and Cadet schools in the Urals, Siberia and the Volga region.”

“Documentary films about child heroes and servicemen involved in armed conflicts were screened for the students.”

“It is a celebration of all those who cross the school threshold on 1 September to get closer to their dreams, which knowledge helps them carry out.”
“Today a new school year begins, for someone it is the first one in their lives. Belarusian schools greet the first graders with great warmth,” he stated.
