The day of knowledge
The new school year in Russia, begins on the Day of knowledge - September 1. This, undoubtedly, is one of the brightest events in the life of every person, and sometimes, memories of it, cause in the soul the most contradictory feelings. For students and their parents this holiday is associated with the line on which the Director of the school utters a solemn speech, and excited and smart first graders give flowers to my first teachers, which will be remembered for a lifetime. Traditionally on this day, the high school – graduate puts him on his shoulder the first grader, and they make a circle around the school yard, filling it with a loud ringing of the bell, making the holiday has another name – the day of the First call.
Originally the first of September, after giving him the status of a national holiday, was a day of learning, beginning with a solemn line, after there were so-called lesson of the World, and then other scheduled lessons. Now the Day of knowledge in schools begins with the line, followed by various events, where special attention is given to first-graders.
For people, students in colleges or universities, 1 September costs solemn meeting of first-year students, where they are issued a student ID card and record book. The students in this day start classes, although it seems unlikely teachers are too strict to their friends on this day, therefore, with pairs they will leave early and here it is unlikely students will miss the opportunity joyfully to celebrate the first day of autumn.
