In the new academic year, one of the largest schools
in the city, located on Yunus Akhmetzyanov Street in the Art-City residential
complex, will open in Kazan. The modern educational facility is designed for 1501
students. The Mayor of Kazan Ilsur Metshin inspected the progress of
construction works today.
“The demographic growth of Kazan is a matter of envy
for any metropolis: every year we increase by at least 10 thousand
schoolchildren, and this academic year another 12.5 thousand children will go
to school”, - Ilsur Metshin said.
Construction of the school began in December 2019
under the “Housing” federal program.
“As of today,
all the construction works have been completed, the engineering support is 100
percent complete. It remains to install technological equipment – desks,
chairs, textbooks, to make navigation”, - said Ilgiz Shafiyev, deputy director
of the contractor organization Ak Tash.
The Mayor visited the dining hall. The head of the
Department of Food and Social Nutrition Rimma Mukhametshina shared the head of
the city with the draft design of the school restaurant.
Much attention is paid to the sports education of
students in the new school: the school has two swimming pools, two gyms with fitness
equipment and up-to-date flooring.
On the third floor of the school, there is an assembly
hall with 780 seats. For comparison, in the neighboring Saidas cultural center the
capacity of the assembly hall is 510 seats.
“Now every school is not just a palace of knowledge,
but a real center of education, sports and culture. This new school has
everything necessary for children: classrooms with very good equipment,
swimming pools, gyms and a huge concert hall. A great project was designed by
specialists, it will be a wonderful gift for children”, - I.Metshin noted.
