Baku, Azerbaijan, Sept.15
A new academic year started in Azerbaijan on September 15. Secondary schools and universities opened doors to pupils and students on the Day of Knowledge.
Many school buildings have been built, reconstructed and overhauled in 2014. Newly-built school No. 124 named after Fizuli Gozalov in Shaghan District of Baku is one of them.
The Day of Knowledge became particularly significant for the teachers and students of this school, as President Ilham Aliyev and his spouse Mehriban Aliyeva attended the opening of the school.
President Aliyev cut the ribbon symbolizing the opening of the facility. Then the head of state and his spouse reviewed the school.
It was stressed that the previous building of the school was constructed in 1961. All conditions have been created in the newly-built 1,560-seat school for conducting the teaching process at a high level.
President Ilham Aliyev congratulated pupils and teachers on the occasion of the new academic year.
The school staff and members of the local public thanked the head of state.
