School Graduates Day: Former PM Myasnikovich visits his school (photo)

The School Graduates Day is held in Belarus on the first Saturday of February. New head of the Council of the Republic Mihail Myasnikovich has visited his school too.

"There is some nostalgia because school life was different in the past. Village schoolchildren did not only get education there – it was the school of life for them,” Mihail Myasnikovcih said at a meeting with former teachers and classmates.

He was very good at writing essays, Mihail Myasnikovcih told BelTA: “My teacher Nadzeya Pilipauna asked me to write essays in a separate notebook of 12 pages. My essays were that long.”
