On September 1, the Republic of Belarus celebrates the Day of Knowledge. The chairman of Mogilev regional executive committee Peter Rudnick visited today specialized secondary boarding school for the visually impaired children in Shklov.
During the previous visit on September 1, 2009 Peter Rudnick presented the boarding school with a special apparatus for testing visual acuity. This time the governor brought a personal computer as a present. “A dry pool” was another surprise. This up-to-date equipment is used at physical culture lessons and helps to develop children’s motor reaction. “Quality of education depends largely on pupils’ health”, - Peter Rudnick stressed.
Peter Rudnick congratulated pupils, parents, teachers with the Day of Knowledge and wished them sound health, optimism, good luck, and lasting thirst for knowledge. Paralympics champion, chairman of Belarus Paralympic Committee Oleg Shepel, who used to study at this specialized secondary boarding school, also subscribed to congratulation and wishes. “Sport provides much facilities for rehabilitation, - Oleg Shepel remarked. – The school has excellent stadium, but there haven’t been any tribunes at the stadium. Thus, 75 new plastic seats that will be placed there in the nearest future will become a nice present”.
More than 100 pupils, including 8 first-year pupils, will study at the boarding school this year. Due to efforts of regional authorities and school administration the educational establishment has all facilities that are necessary for education, development and rehabilitation of the visually impaired children. Computer class, workshops, gym promote intellectual and physical development of children.
Today Peter Rudnick planted the first tree of the “The Alley of Childhood” that would be situated at the premises of the boarding school.
