On March 1, First Vice-president of the Republic of Azerbaijan, President of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation Mehriban Aliyeva familiarized herself with the conditions created in Republican Special Boarding School No.6 for children with restricted health condition named after Elmar Mirzayev in Turkan settlement, Khazar district.
The special boarding school has been in operation since 1979. Since the school year 2004-2006, the boarding school has been operating as an education establishment providing general secondary education.
First Vice-president Mehriban Aliyeva made herself closely familiarized with the “Healthy education class” established in this school, and took interest in the methods of education.
It was informed that necessary conditions have been created here to make sure that children with restricted health condition could master necessary knowledge, and that the establishment has been provided with special equipment and inventory. This, in turn, ensures that children educated in this class participate in various competitions. In general, “Healthy education classes“ are functioning at 135 schools throughout the country. President of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation Mehriban Aliyeva wished successes to children being educated in the “Healthy education class”.
At the moment, 176 pupils are studying at the school and 88 out of them are residing at the establishment. The pupils have been grouped on 15 classes. A staff consisting of 101 people has been engaged in the education of children. Considering the material and technical basis of the school, the subject “carpet weaving technology” is being taught at manual trainings since 2008-2009. Along with receiving general education, pupils of the boarding school master the carpet weaving art, one of the very ancient and vastly spread types of Azerbaijani decorative art. A soccer team comprised of the boarding school’s pupils are regularly participating in sports competitions held within the republic.
President of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation Mehriban Aliyeva attended the inauguration of this establishment on September 15, 2014, after the basic repair works carried out at the Heydar Aliyev Foundation’s initiative. After the reconstruction works, 4 buildings, 3 open type sports stadium and 1 sports hall were commissioned in the school complex. The three-storied large education building, two-storied education-recreation building, two-storied utility service building and one-storied secondary building serve to pupils’ education and treatment.
