The best Krasnokamensk children were awarded prizes as a part of the contest “Rosatom Schoolchild. Collect a Bag of ‘A’ Grades”
The contest was launched in November of the previous year. Children studying at educational establishments and whose parents are working in nuclear industry enterprises, became participants of the ambitious and large-scaled program. The biggest uranium extracting enterprise of Russia did not keep apart. Children of employees of PJSC PIMCU tried to show the best results.
As teachers of Krasnokamensk schools noticed, the children’s motivation increased from one term to another. If there were 85 A-pupils and B-pupils in the second term, their numbers increased up to 114 by the end of the school year. At the same time 78 children finished the year with only ‘A’ grades, the rest have one or two ‘B’ grades.
All prize winners of the contest received diplomas and gifts from Olga Shcherbakova, HR Director of PIMCU. “Thank you, children, for your purposefulness, serious attitude to studies. ‘A’ grades are a guarantee of your future successful studies and career. We believe in you, we are proud and we hope that you will become a worthy replacement for your parents and will come to work in nuclear industry enterprises”, Olga Shcherbakova said, congratulating children and their parents.
Vadim Elantsev, a pupil of the 11th grade of gymnasium # 9, learnt about the contest from his grandfather Oleg Victorovich Semenov, who is employed in the capacity of the head of independent civil defense and industrial safety administration of PIMCU. Vadim admits that the project aroused big interest at once, and he set a target for himself to get to the final stage. “To tell the truth, it’s difficult to study getting only ‘A’ grades during the whole year. I had a ‘B’ in the third term and as a result I finished with two ‘B’ grades. In my opinion, such projects are a serious motivation for getting higher grades, they make you work and think about your prospects”, he admitted.
The day when the contest results were summed up also became special for Vitaly Bratanov, a breakage face miner from mine # 8. His daughter Alina, who finished the fourth grade with ‘A’ grades only, got the deserved diploma and gift. “It’s not easy to be an A-pupil, you have to do your homework well, to study all the time, but I did not want to let down my parents,” the A-pupil said.
The organizers of the project were thorough in their selection of gifts for clever boys and girls from Krasnokamensk, taking into account the age and children’s requirements. Little and big A-pupils and B-pupils received diplomas, intellectual games, gift books, sets for creative work, earphones, wireless mouse and keyboard sets for their grades in the end of the school year. Each family was given a memorable postcard, signed by Sergey Kirienko, Director General of Rosatom, with thanks for high results of their children.
