I told them about the projects that are being created by "Troyeshchyna" gymnasium 7-8 grade students.

It's a nice tradition in our gymnasium to host teachers and pupils from Germany. This year German delegation arrived on 17 September and left on 23 September. Ukrainian and German students became friends very soon. The headmaster Victor Safiulin and a teacher of German Halyna Suvorova have come to greet the students.
On 11-14 June best Kyiv and Kyiv region teachers were invited to check written tasks (letters), which were part of the independent test in English.
Teachers had to check at least 24 letters a day.
"Troyeshchyna" gymnasium teachers were said to be very professional. Tetiana Pikush, Tetiana Kondratenko, Tetiana Savchenko, Olena Shatrova, Tina Tsarenko, Olga Ratushna, Halyna Suvorova, Lidiya Vykhrystenko and I, Nataliya Byzova, were involved there.
