President Viktor Yanukovych took part in an opening of a newly built Kyiv Engineering School. Congratulating the students, their parents, and teachers on the Day of Knowledge, the President noted that today's holiday is to be celebrated in nearly 20 thousands schools across Ukraine, in which more than 4 million students will study. More than 400 thousand children are to go to school for the first time this year. "I would like to wish you a good school year," Viktor Yanukovych said.

President Yanukovych called the Kyiv Engineering School an example of the future education system. "We make this step into the future together. Future Koroliovs, Antonovs and Patons will learn here," he said, expressing the belief that the quality of education in such modern schools will be high.

The President assured that new schools will continue to open in Ukraine. According to him, 20 new schools will be opened in the 2011-2012 academic year. "Education needs greater attention of the government, as it is an investment in the future, in the development of our country,” Viktor Yanukovych said.

The President also noted that following the example of the School, all the schools of our state will be equipped modern first-aid posts that will closely monitor the health of children.

At the event President Yanukovych gave a certificate for school computer equipment to the School principal.

Once the first bell rang, the President cut a symbolic ribbon at the School entrance. He also got acquainted with the learning conditions at the institution and talked to the first-graders.
