As we become older we realize that there are some essential things and places
we always long to come back. They are certainly our birthplace, our home and our school. We will always be indebted to our school and parents for the rest
of our lives.
Generally speaking, children go to school at the
age of 6-7. They study for 11 years. At school the pupils get fundamentals of knowledge in
My school house is one of the most interesting from
the point of view of the architecture. It’s not big but rather attractive. There are two
sport grounds on the both sides of the school house. In front of the building there are
fir trees and a lot of flower beds. Our class rooms are well equipped with all necessary
things for learning different subjects. These are modern teaching materials, necessary
devices and facilities.
The ground floor is as a rule for junior pupils in
