Dear pupils and teachers, dear parents!
On behalf of the National Council of the World Tatars Congress and on my own behalf, I sincerely congratulate you on September 1 – the Day of Knowledge. This is a great celebration for first-graders, who will ring the first bell, and for parents sending their children to a new fascinating world of knowledge, and for pupils who returned to school with renewed vigor, and for teachers who are looking forward to the start of a new school year.
Tatar wisdom says: “Seek happiness not on the road, but in knowledge.” From time immemorial the Tatars paid special attention to education and sought to enrich it. Dear friends! I wish you all good health and prosperity. Let this academic year bring many new discoveries and be filled only with positive results.
Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Tatarstan,
