The delegation of young heroes, winners of the Kangaroo, Meghu and Russian Bear Cub contests, visited RA Prime Minister’s residence on August 30. The aim of the visit was to receive, in a solemn setting, medals and certificates for the best results registered in the mentioned school competitions. This year, the delegation consisted of 45 students (48 winners, three of them being two-time awardees), including three multiple winners of Kangaroo contest, six of Meghu, and one of Russian Bear Cub. The rest were students having registered the best result in either of these contests within each age group, in each marz and in Artsakh.
Upon the initiative of the Ayb Educational Foundation, the high authority of the state has received the winners of school competitions for nine successive years. Prior to reception at Nikol Pashinyan’s residence, the Ayb Educational Foundation organized tours at Ayb School, Zangak Publishing House and Cafesjian Center for the Arts for the winners and awardees. The visits aimed to encourage and inspire the children, helping them discover new and fascinating learning environments.
Ayb School students conducted a tour for the awardees, telling them about the school establishment, its premises, mission and educational process. During the visit to the printing office of Zangak Publishing House, our winners had a chance to familiarize with the process of book creation, talk about their favorite books, literary characters, lessons and hobbies. Cafesjian Center for the Arts welcomed the children with unique exhibits of Armenian art. After an impressive tour the children met RA Prime Minister.
Greeting and congratulating the award-winners, RA Prime Minister characterized the event as a tribute to achievements attained in the field of education. “In general, the quality of life is being much spoken about in Armenia, but we should, on all occasions and also in this hall today, deliver a clear message to our youth and our children in the first place, that the only and vital guarantee of a quality life is education. It’s education that ensures high living standards,” he added.
The Ayb Educational Foundation attaches great importance to sustainability of educational achievements and to their due appreciation as a source of inspiration and of new aspirations for the younger generation. Ayb School, Zangak Publishing House and Cafesjian Center for the Arts helped us make the day for our children memorable and impressive by hosting them and organizing exciting tours for them.
