17 School In Yakutia

School In Yakutia

Posted on January 17, 2013 by team

When it is below -45C (-49F) schoolchildren from first to fifth grade do not go to school. When iy is colder than -47C (-52.6F) eighth graders are also permitted to stay at home. When it becomes as cold as -50C (-58F) all children miss school classes. Many years ago they didn’t go to school but they didn’t stay at home either. They came outside and played different winter games. Today they prefer the Internet and video games.

We are going to visit one school of Yakutsk right now.

Meanwhile the temperature is – 46C (-50.8F).

This school is one of the best in the city. Today they have 700 pupils and two branches.

It starts from the bright building.

They have many warm clothes on!

Timetable hangs on the wall.

“Hwow I spent my summer”. By the way, summer in Yakutia is rather hot. +30C (86F) and even hotter.

The bell sounds like a national musical instrument combined with sounds of nature which is very cool.

They have ballet classes too.

The school is given many presents.

The director of the school collects bells from all around the world.

Guimbarde museum (it’s a national musical instrument).

The pupil of the school is on the cover.

It’s a rockstar-club!

This is their art museum – expositions vary from classic to modern art.


“I love you, Yakutsk!”

Winter is more a state of mind than the temperature outside. Even very cold days can be bright and wonderful.
