KURGAN, September 2 (Itar-Tass) - President Vladimir Putin, who arrived in Kurgan Region on Sunday night, will congratulate the pupils of one of city schools on the commencement of the new school year on Monday. The Head of State will visit Secondary General Educational School 7 where he will meet and socialize with the pupils and teachers.

After a meeting with the School Council, which consists of teachers, pupils and parents, Federal budget resources were allocated on an instruction of the Head of State and capital repairs of the school were carried out. On Monday, Putin will be able to see how the school now looks and functions.
School 7, apart from educational functions, also performs the role of a cultural and leisure center for children who live in the neighbourhood. The school is being attended by about 900 pupils; there is an extended daycare group, hobby groups and sections.
On September 1, Putin already had an occasion to congratulate students on the start of the new academic year: when in Vladivostok, the Head of State met with students of the Far Eastern Federal University. Upon whishing them every success, the President also listened to their wishes and observations.

Putin held a final conference on the elimination of the aftermath of the floods and several other meetings in Vladivostok. On his way to Kurgan he also visited Krasnoyarsk Territory where he met with the Territory's governor.
