Yesterday our school hosted the Medeu district Poetry Recitation Contest dedicated to the 175th anniversary of the great poet Abay Kunabaev. The purpose of the contest was to acquaint pupils with Abay’s poems, translations, the Book of Words and to spark the interest in them in reading Abay’s works. Pupils from 30 schools of the district showed their skills in reading not only the verses and poems of Abay, but also his translations and the Book of Words. Our pupils from Y 3, 5 and 12–13 played dombra, sang songs and played quizzes with the audience.
Chu Reana from Y9 won the 3rd place and got to the next round of the contest.
