Russian School - A day in  a Russian schools

Russian School

This Blog ( Article) is about my first  day in Russia. I hope you Enjoy this blog.

It is 10:00 AM,  today and i am not feeling that well, as it is really cold it's the very first day of my trip to russia. It is 4 degree celsius i should have planned my trip a bit earlier. Now i am going to a school right now.

Actually my host from couch surfing, she is a teacher here this is the school this time my experience will be quiet different. I am excited to be able to talk to school kids this is one of the local school of Russia children are having fun the same way as indian kids would have the class looks really good. I have been told that in primary classes from class one to five they study in the same classroom for those four years and when they get promoted to class five is when there classroom is changed but what happens in india is that each year our classroom changes but it is not the same here.

Class room

 I reached here (Omsk)yesterday evening and i am actually feeling very happy. Time is around 10:48 here, but in India it must be around 10:30 or 10:15 these are the children i am interacting with the kids earlier were the little ones, and were being quiet notorious ahm, but kids will be kids but i am really enjoying being here this sort of experience is quiet different for me to be in a school, in Russia we are interacting right now, i am telling them about India they are telling me about Russia, infact, they are the one telling me about where should i go next in Russia and, a lot of other stuff they have made a Indian flag for me and i heard this word "kharasho" many times yesterday while travelling from astana to omsk i don't need to learn this specific word as the person.

Class room

I will be meeting will be welcoming me this place is for physical activities this is actually a government school in omsk a typical goverenment school in Russia with a lot of good infrstructure most of our government schools don't have this level of infrastructure but, some of them do have it like in Delhi, i have heard that the demand to get admission in government school is on a rise to an extent that parents are taking there kids out of the private schools and getting them admissions in public ones, which is a very positive change but right now i am in a local public school of Russia which i believe is an old one but they do give facilities to children they teach foreign languages too like English and French in special classes and have specialised teachers to teach as well.

School canteen

Now, i am in the school canteen it is really different from what we are used to Mr.Victor is also a teacher in here he was the english teacher,


who has been a lot of help one more interaction session with smaller kids of class four. It is currently 12:30 in the afternoon and right behind me is the school building omsk, is a small town people don't understand english that well as told by my host as i could have problem travelling by myself but, still i am trying to go out.

 what are these big pipes for?,, i have no idea what is that to my left? i have no idea i actually dont have any idea, about where i need to go the only thing i know is, that it is my first day in Russia the first thing i need to take care of is that i have to withdraw the "rubal" the local currency from an ATM. Afterwards i need a local sim card so that i can stay connected, and use some basic apps so, this will be my first step and after that, i will plan accordingly although,the weather is really cold so the weather is not on my side and i may have to adjust my plans accordingly.

 Then i saw  a lady, just pushed a red button to give the traffic a signal  is the red button Delhi also has these sorts of buttons at many places,especially at India Gate at Pelican signal just press the button and cross the road sometime, people do misuse them as well.

This is a local building residential area in Omsk,my host lives somewhere near here as well to my left are tracks for trams these buildings are called something built in 1960-70's the concept is named something. I can't remember the name.
