Taking risks
(short essay)

We take risks everyday. For example, when we go to work or school by car, bus or another transport, or when we go to swimming pool. Though some people are afraid of taking risks or difficult choices,  there are more and more people that like taking risks, enjoy being afraid, and just want to try everything.

January 2019
Winter Camp

The start of our second semester was actually very good. We were in Miss Irina's class and spent a great time. First 3 days we were playing some games in English, doing some other projects and also deciding our topic for English lesson in primary school.

On the 10th of January was our “24 hours in school” project, so we stayed in school all day. We cooked lasagna, ate it, and were playing games, watching movies in English till midnight. Imagine the dark school with Christmas lights, and without that noise, teachers, annoying kids and anything else, pretty cool, huh? You can do whatever you want, and no one can stop you. Anyway, I didn't stay at night and i missed almost everything, so I can’t tell about it much.


Lesson in the eastern school

On November 9th a small group of high school students went to the eastern school to participate in a collaborative project "We learn by Teaching".Kids were happy to see us and so we were. Some of them were well prepared for this lesson. Our lesson was about our school «Mkhitar Sebastatsi» Educomplex. We started with some questions.


Educational trip to Artsakh

The trip we had planned a month ago started on October 27th. It was a very interesting adventure and experience for us, and I'm going to tell about it in details.
Day 1: Our first stop was at the Hayravank  Monastery located on the shores of Lake Sevan. We were impressed by the stunning view of that place. We walked around, had breakfast and continued our trip. Next, we stopped in the Dadivanq Monastery, and after that - the village Vanq, and went to their school. We walked around the school, made new friends, and invited them to our school. Then we went to the  monastery og Gandzasar. It was very big and beautiful, and the view was unforgettable.


Preparations for an educational trip

As you know our trip to Syunik’ province was very successful. When we arrived home, we had already planned our next trip. This time we’re going to Artsakh. Only few of us have been there, we all are going to learn many interesting things about Artsakh. As some kind of tradition each of us is supposed to find and learn some information about one of the many places we’ve planned to go.


Stereotypes about Canada

There are a lot of stereotypes about every country in the world, and Canada is not an exception. If we search about Canadian stereotypes, we can find many interesting things, that aren’t always true. But what do Canadian people think about it? Are stereotypes about Canada true, or are they just rumors? I’m going to present 5 stereotypes about Canada that are true.

1. Canadian people are very polite. They are kind and sweet and they don’t deny it. They can say sorry even if they didn’t do anything, so if you ever visit Canada, you have to be polite too.

Educational trip to Syunik’

21th of September is the Independence Day of Armenia. It has become a    tradition in our school to celebrate it in the highlands, climbing up the mountains. So, I’m going to write about our trip in details.
This year we chose the mountain Ishkhanac. The big part of our group didn’t climb it, but some students with our history teacher Mr Vardan did. It was really hard, cause the height of the mountain is 3200m. We were back in an hour and were waiting for others to return. Some students got lost somewhere, and others were looking for them. So, after 4 hours, when it started to rain, we found everyone and continued our trip. We went to the store in Goris, bought some food, and went to Mr Vardan’s house in the village Kornidzor. We had supper, played some games and went to sleep.

Preparations for an educational trip

For me educational trip is the most interesting and useful way to learn something. We learn many things about our country, go to historical places, and much more. We also spend great time, make new friends and get really close to each other.
This time we decided to go to Goris, Khndzoresk, Tatev monastery, and many more interesting places. Also we’re going to climb a mountain and watch a waterfall. Our schedule is really full.

Are parents the best teachers?
Here, in Armenia, people think that parents are the best teachers. They know more than children, know what's right and good for them. Here parents choose religion for their children, also in some families they choose friends, profession, food, clothes, hobbies and much more for their children, and think that it's normal. If you go to some villages, far from Yerevan, you'll see, that kids look and think like their parents, and seems like a 4 years old kid, is a 40 years old man.
I  really hate this fact in Armenia. Parents don't let their children think by themselves, and that's not right. Yes, you can choose clothes or food for your kid, when he's very small, and can't understand everything yet. But you can't choose something personal for him like a boyfriend/girlfriend, orientation or religion.
