Alexander Shumilin: People become interested in science while at school

Alexander Shumilin, Chairman of the State Committee on Science and Technology of the Republic of Belarus, during the festive events dedicated to the beginning of the school year, visited Byaroza Secondary School No. 2 and congratulated the students on the Day of Knowledge. He emphasized that people usually become interested in science while at school, and urged children to direct their efforts for the benefit of Belarus and its future.

“I have fond memories of my native land. I was born in the village of Kuraushchyna of the Seletsky village council. From the fourth grade, I studied at secondary school No. 2, and I graduated from it. I spent my youth in Byaroza, and my introduction to science and invention took place here. It was in the Byaroza school where I took my first steps into the scientific life: I enjoyed engineering and developing new things in the radio hams’group. After graduation, I achieved the second category in radio engineering, and designs and models were exhibited at district, as well as regional competitions and won prizes,” Alexander Shumilin shared his memories with school students. At parting, he handed over his gifts to the school staff: the fundamental edition “World Heritage of Frantsisk Skaryna” and popular scientific and technical literature.

Konstantin Shulgan, Minister of Communications and Informatization of the Republic of Belarus, who is another well-known graduate of the school, addressed the students of the school with kind words and warm wishes.

This year, secondary school No. 2 of Byaroza is 60 years old. 1218 students will be enrolled in the institution, of which 157 are first-graders.
