First Vice-president of Azerbaijan, President of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation Mehriban Aliyeva first attended the inauguration of a new building of the Gymnasium of Foreign Language bias named after Suleyman Rustam in Mardakan settlement.
The first vice-president became familiar with the facilities created in the education institution.
Assistant to the Azerbaijani President Anar Alakbarov gave information that the school and hostel buildings on the gymnasium’s territory, which had been operating since 1960, had fallen into disrepair, becoming unfit for operation, therefore, they were demolished. A new building was constructed in their place, following the Heydar Aliyev Foundation’s initiative.
It was brought to attention that the gymnasium is meant for 1029 pupils. The new building of the gymnasium accommodates classrooms, laboratories, an IT classroom, a military training room, a library, and a canteen. The building of the Lachyn school and the hostel building located in the gymnasium’s yard were constructed anew. 12 classrooms, assembly and indoor sports halls are operating in the Lachyn District Secondary School No.32, meant for 216 pupils. At the same time, there have been created an open-air football pitch and a sports ground. The hostel building in the area is for 185 people. The three-storied hostel building has been provided with necessary furniture and equipment.
Then First Vice-president of the Republic of Azerbaijan Mehriban Aliyeva arrived at the newly constructed hostel building of Special Boarding School No.12 in Shuvalan settlement and became familiar with the building.
According to the information given, 120 pupils aged 6 to 14 with restricted health condition due to musculoskeletal disturbance have been educated in the school, which started to operate in 1972. Located within the education building, the hostel was repaired by the Heydar Aliyev Foundation, adapting it to the education rooms, and a new education building was constructed on the institution’s territory. Being three-storied, the new hostel building is meant for 128 people. The building accommodates a dining hall, a kitchen, a first-aid room, a resting area, a library, as well as room for organizing leisure.
Thereafter, First Vice-president Mehriban Aliyeva became familiar with the facilities in reconstructed Kindergarten No.229 in Buzovna settlement, following the Heydar Aliyev Foundation’s initiative.
This kindergarten too is another contribution by the Heydar Aliyev Foundation to the works carried out towards reconstruction of a preschool education institution. Once used as a residential house, this building had been operating, since 1957, as a kindergarten, after necessary adaptation works. As the building, which was built in 1937, had fallen into disrepair, it was demolished and a new building was constructed in its place on the initiative of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation.
The commissioned three-storied kindergarten building accommodates play rooms, sports, music and art halls, sleeping rooms, a first-aid room, cloak-rooms, and other technical rooms. The kindergarten has been provided with necessary furniture and equipment. An open-air playground has been created to arrange children’s free time, and greenery was planted on the territory.
In the activities of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation, programmes and projects for the development of science and education have their special place among the priority fields. The programme “Development of preschool education institutions”, which has been implemented by the Foundation since 2014, is aimed at solution of existing problems in this field. By implementing this programme, the Heydar Aliyev Foundation has made significant contribution in this direction. Reconstruction of kindergartens and construction of new ones are being carried out within the framework of the programme.
