To a Long Jour­ney to Seek Knowl­edge

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - KALEIDOSCOPE -

On Septem­ber 5, the cap­i­tal city, like, though, other ci­ties and vil­lages of the na­tive Uzbek­istan, was sim­ply hardly rec­og­niz­able. Hav­ing just cel­e­brated and fes­tively marked the lat­est an­niver­sary of na­tional in­de­pen­dence, our coun­try seemed to grow younger – dressed chil­dren looked pleased ev­ery­where, boys and girls with flow­ers in their hands. A new aca­demic year thus be­gan at the ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions of Uzbek­istan. Mil­lions of school­child­ren, stu­dents of col­leges and lyceums, univer­sity stu­dents rushed to seek knowl­edge.

By a good long tra­di­tion, classes in all ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions of the coun­try with­out ex­cep­tion started with In­de­pen­dence Lessons.

... At the school № 16 in Chirchik, our cor­re­spon­dent ob­served how a teacher of the first class handed over to the girls and boys, who stepped over the school thresh­old for the first time, the pres­i­den­tial gifts. One should have seen the ex­cite­ment in the pure chil­dren’s eyes and joy and pride!

“I’ve been wait­ing so long for this les­son, I was so wor­ried,” says the first­grader Demir Daniyev. “And the Pres­i­dent’s gift is just won­der­ful, if only I could thank our Pres­i­dent for it.”

His mother also shared her im­pres­sions:

“We liked what we saw in the school at first sight – com­fort, clean­li­ness, mod­ern equip­ment and fur­ni­ture ev­ery­where. Es­pe­cially pleas­ing is the benev­o­lence of teach­ers, their care for chil­dren. My son later told me about the Pres­i­dent’s gift with joy and en­thu­si­asm. And the teach­ers in the first les­son ex­plained to the chil­dren what the Moth­er­land, in­de­pen­dence are and how much the lat­ter has given to ev­ery one of us.”

The first bell rang also for hun­dreds of thou­sands of first-graders. And all of them were solemnly, with the par­tic­i­pa­tion of the gen­eral pub­lic, pre­sented with pres­i­den­tial gifts – back­packs, text­books, school ac­ces­sories.

… A long, prac­ti­cally end­less road to knowl­edge , com­pre­hen­sion of life and its se­crets, has be­gun its count­down.
