Karaganda local history campaign for school students
Local historians of Karaganda showcased the most interesting, educational and beautiful sites of the region in a field trip to school students from Aktobe. 64 teenagers spent three unforgettable days in the region during the excursion. Many of the students visited the region for the first time.
The eventful agenda included a visit to nature reserves and modern metallurgical plants. The students also visited the place where President Nursultan Nazarbayev used to work. They also went to the university where Nazarbayev used to study as well as the Museum of the First President of Kazakhstan.
AISU ALDYBERGENOVA, SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGIST:
-The children are very happy. They were greeted with a warm welcome. We hope that such campaigns will continue and will be held regularly.
The students visited Shakhtinsk and Temirtau. One of the most exciting experiences for them is the visit to the winter garden in the town of metallurgists. 120 rare exotic plant species are collected in the garden, including banana trees, lemon trees, pomegranate trees as well as persimmon and fig trees. The unique garden with a 25-year old history is one of the landmarks in the region.
- Today, we made a tour and visited many interesting sites in Temirtau. The town is very beautiful. It’s my first visit to Karaganda. Therefore I want to look around the city because I don’t often get to visit the region.
- This park is my favourite part of the trip. I liked the palm trees most of all.
The students from Aktobe also visited Karkaraly district. They were very impressed with the tour to the Museum of Political Repression Victims’ Memory of the Dolinka settlement. The local history campaign will continue with the return visit by students from Karaganda to Aktobe. More than 40 students look forward to the opportunity to learn the history of Aktobe region.
