The opening ceremony of the winter holidays for students of secondary schools of Turkmenistan was held on the square in front of the capital Palace of Children and Youth. Upon its completion, schoolchildren from all the provinces of the country went on holiday to the children's health centers GAlkdere. In 14 health resorts, more than 7 thousand schoolchildren will spend the New Year holidays. Also, 1,500 young Turkmen citizens will receive 5 equipped recreation centers in the country's provinces.
The annual event, organized at the initiative of President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, is traditionally accompanied by a fabulous performance and performances of children's groups. This year the square near the Palace has turned into a magical clearing with a decorated Christmas tree, surrounded by a fairytale forest decorated with garlands and multi-colored balls.
The guys, along with Ayaz Baba, Garpamyk and other fairy-tale characters, danced around her, sang and danced. Pupils of the creative circles of the Palace of Children and Youth - choreographic ensembles "Satlyk" and "Gyzyl guljagaz", as well as young vocalists - decorated the festival with cheerful dances and fervent songs. In an atmosphere of joy, schoolchildren were escorted to a string of buses, which were soon taken away by children to meet the winter rest.
GAlkdere Gorge is one of the most picturesque corners of Turkmenistan and a favorite resting place of Ashgabat people. The landscapes of the Kopetdag slopes evergreen from coniferous trees and the snow-capped peaks covered with morning haze seem like illustrations to fantastic stories.
During the winter holidays, the guys will make fascinating excursions both in the picturesque surroundings and in the museums and sights of the Turkmen capital. In addition, schoolchildren in children's centers can improve their physical training in sports complexes, attend various hobby groups, including for future designers and needlewomen, to learn foreign languages and computer literacy.
On the stages of the amphitheaters and concert halls of GAlkdere, New Year performances will take place, the participants of which will be the children themselves, as well as popular performers, creative and theatrical groups of the country.
