Egor Borisov congratulates on the Day of Knowledge September 1

 Dear pupils and students! Distinguished teachers and parents! On behalf of the Government of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) and myself I cordially congratulate you on the start of the new school year!

This holiday is not accidentally called the Day of Knowledge. On this gala day thousands of schools across the country will open their doors; almost 13,000 first-graders will cross the threshold of the school and discover a world of knowledge!

The goal of the current reforms in the field of education is to ensure that all students have equal access to high-quality knowledge, no matter in a rural school or a city gymnasium. In the current academic year, the introduction and implementation of new educational standards will continue, special attention will be paid to improving the status of teachers, the level of their training, as well as the role of parents in their children's education. The Government of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) places the highest value on the development and modernization of the education setting, the improvement of the quality of educational services. All necessary conditions are created so that every child can get knowledge and experience to fully disclose and apply his skills and talents, realize his potential in life and become a worthy citizen of his native country.

One should understand that the school years are not only happy, but also a very important time in the life of every person. This is the time when children receive their basic knowledge. Learning is quite a hard work that requires patience and serious attitude from students and teachers, and even from parents. So I wish you, pupils and students, excellent marks, persistence and eventful creative life, and let your teachers and parents achieve professional success, have patience and wisdom!

With special warmth I congratulate first-graders and freshmen who have become members of large, friendly school and student groups.

I wish all teachers, researchers, and staff of educational institutions constant quest for new heights of professional, academic and creative achievements, health, prosperity, successful school year and grateful students!



Head of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia)
