I would like to share with you a story about the journey of Altynai Nadyrbekova, a clinical resident of the KSMA in the specialty of pediatric cardio-rheumatology, the winner of the competition for young scientists as part of the Days of Science of the KSMA 2022.
Altynai participated in this cultural and educational journey together with the winner of the FIRST TEACHER 2021 competition – Asel Ubaidyldaeva, a primary school teacher in the village of Cholpon, Ak-Suu district, Issyk-Kul region. The fact is that every year since 2011, the Sanjarbek Daniyarov Foundation has been organizing a competition for teachers of primary classes in rural schools. The award for the winner of the teacher competition is the same as for the young medical scientist – a 10-day cultural and educational trip to Moscow, one of the major world capitals with a large number of museums, theaters, architectural monuments and other city attractions. In addition, the winning teacher annually comes on a cultural and educational journey with his entire class to Bishkek for the weekend. About the trips of teachers and students, reports in the rubric – Education / Award to the teacher.
The Altynai’s journey took place in 2022, but I am writing about it only now. The fact is that after two years of the pandemic, the summer of 2022 I organized a large number of trips at once as part of the Sanjarbek Daniyarov Foundation Prize. This is a weekend trip of primary school students from nine classes of nine regions to Bishkek, as well as three teachers and one medical scientist trips to Moscow. Therefore, some of my reports are late, and I filling in the gap now!
