September 1 is not like any other day, it is the first day of school for all children in Armenia. A day of celebration and anticipation. The sun shone brightly in a beautiful Armenia blue sky where students excitedly caught up with old friends, and began meeting new ones, lined up ready to embark on a new school year.
Students, teachers and parents were greeted by the Principal, Melania Geghamyan, who wished them a new successful academic year full of great accomplishments, which will result in a long-term effect on Armenia’s future endeavors. In addition, Mrs. Geghamyan read a message sent by the Minister of Education, Mr. Armen Ashotian, greeting all the students, parents and teachers on their first day of school. Mr. Ashotian’s message emphasized the importance of education and that school is a wonderful source of knowledge, which over the years becomes so deeply rooted in the minds and hearts of the students that they would never forget and forever call it “my school.”
Mr. Harout Nercessian, the Armenian Missionary Association’s Representative in Armenia, also gave his message, congratulating the students, parents and teachers on the start of the new 2015-16 academic year, adding that they were extremely privileged to be able to attend and receive their education from the Khoren and Shooshanig Avedisian School. He also encouraged them to reach their goals and to become well-educated Armenian citizens, contributing to their country.
We thank God for the opportunities created at the Khoren and Shooshanig Avedisian School for the children of Armenia. The passionate spirit to create an appealing and attractive atmosphere in an educational institution where students would love to excel and propel themselves forward has always been in the minds of the benefactors and the Armenian Missionary Association of America, who brought forth this unique educational institution… Your support of the School will make a difference.
