It was a pleasant surprise for all 108 first-graders in the municipality, when entering the classroom on the first school day. 56 boys and 52 girls from “Vasil Levski” Secondary School, “St. St. Cyril and Methodius” Elementary School – the village of Obruchishte, and the schools “St. Paisii Hilendarski” and “Hristo Botev” received the school supplies provided by the most advanced coal-fired power station in Bulgaria.
“The first school bell and the first school day are great moments for every child. This is a new stage of development and recognition for each of you. The years spent in the classroom might help you make your dreams come true. Stand up for yourself with willpower and intelligence, pursue with faith the interesting and beautiful in the vast world of science. Good luck to all of you”, AES Bulgaria Managing Director Ivan Tzankov wished to the first-graders.
