Children from Portland want to study at Khabarovsk Schools
Vice-Mayor of Khabarovsk Sergei Kravchuk met with the delegation of schoolchildren from our sister-city on June 29th. He told our gusts about our city, explained what Young Army is and asked them about the impressions of Khabarovsk.
The American students said it was a pity that they had come to Khabarovsk during summer holidays and expressed their desire to study with their Russian peers.
“We should work through this matter. I’m sure that exchange projects among students allow children and grownups to understand the culture and the history of our countries”, Sergei Kravchuk said.
There are 11 people in the delegation from Portland. They are the students and teachers from Franklin High School. They study the Russian language. They have been in Khabarovsk for about two weeks. They have visited Little Prince Children’s Crafts Palace, Amur Bridge museum, Vzlet Military Patriotic Centre, Rus Alive History museum, taken part in the prom night at Platinum Arena and had a boat trip on the Amur. They also managed to go to Vladivostok for a couple of days. Friendship without Borders round table was organized at the end of their stay at Gymnasium # 5 on July 4th. All children lived in Russian families. The school children exchange project started in 2016 but our cities have had friendly relations for 30 years already.
