KRASNODAR, southern Russia, September 2 (Itar-Tass) — Schools and technical colleges in the Krymsk district of the Kuban region opened their doors to students on September despite devastating floods that hit the area early in July.
Three flags – of the Krasnodar territory, Russia and Belarus – were raised at a ceremony in school No.2 in Krymsk.
“Belarusian representatives helped renovating the school after the July flooding, following a decree by President Alexander Lukashenko,” Natalya Naumova, the minister of education and science of the Kuban region, told Itar-Tass.
The Belarusian workers had repaired several classrooms on the second floor, the front facades of the internal courtyard, the central porch, stained-glass panel and the school’s canopy.
Belarus sent 60 top-qualified builders to Krymsk. The Belarusian government allocated 8 billion Belarusian rubles to Krymsk for the school’s renovation.
“We made a school in which our children deserve to study in,” Viktor Guminsky, the deputy speaker of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus, said.
The children planted a birch-tree, a symbol of Friendship, in the school yard as a sign of friendship between Russia and Belarus.
Another flood-stricken school in Krymsk was restored by builders from Yakutia.
“All schools and technical colleges of the region opened their doors to pupils despite the recent horrible flood,” Naumova emphasized.
First thematic lessons were held in Krymsk on Saturday. They were devoted to the 200th anniversary of the 1812 Patriotic War and the 75th anniversary of foundation of the Krasnodar territory.
