Day of Knowledge


Tomorrow, September 1, is the beginning of the academic year in my country. It is officially called Day of Knowledge. In fact, this day is a national event. Despite not being a day off, September 1 is a true holiday for most of people especially for all teachers, pupils and students and those who are related to education. On this day all children and young people who go to their schools, colleges and universities bring flowers to their teachers and congratulate them with the beginning of the academic year. There are different ceremonial actions in all educational establishments. For those children who go to school first time administration organizes so called "The First Bell" ceremony, i.e. initiation into pupils. Same ceremony takes place for the freshmen at the universities and colleges. 

Happy Day of Knowledge to all students and teachers! Knowledge is power. Please, never forget about that!

    1. The school year lasts 9 months (September to May). It is divided into four quarters: 1 - September-October 2 - November-December, 3 - January-March 4 - April-May. Vacations share quarters. They last from a week to 10 days (Christmas holidays). Children rest in the summer. All summer.
      Students also learn to 9 or 10 months (depending on the college or university), the academic year is divided into 2 semesters (before the New Year and after the New Year). At the end of each semester, students take exams.
