Our Technical Secondary School.

As we become older we realize that there are some essential things and places we always want to come back to. They are certainly our birtplace, our home, our school and our technical school. We will always be indebted to our teachers for the rest of our lives.

I study at the Technical Secondary School of Food Industry in town Smila. This educational establishment is one of the oldest and best-known in our country. It is more than one hundred years old. It was founded in 1884 by Duke Bobrynsky, who was the owner of several sugar-refineries in that places. There was a need to have their own specialists in serving the facilities of these plants. Because they had to prepare these specialists or invite them from abroad. So the first mechanical classes appeared which prepared the specialists, the foremen for these plants.

After the revolution it was a technical school which prepared mechanics and technologists of sugar industry for the whole country. In 1928 it was reorganized into the sugar institute. In 1934 it become a technical school again. Many distinguished people of Ukraine studied at Smila.

The Technical school provided fine teaching futilities in mechanics, technology, treatment of materials, automatization and computing.

There is a library with thausands of books.

The technical school ocupied three buildings with classrooms and labolatories — one old and two new ones. Non-residential students live in a hostel. When you come into the administrative buildings №3 you will see a hall and a corrider with many doors of administrative services, book-kepeng. There is a gimnasium where we have our Physical training and an assembling hall. There are many classrooms. And the students study various subjects there: mathematic, physics, chemistry, biology, Ukrainian and foreign languages. This billing is connected with building №2 by the corridor. There are many laboratories, specialized rooms, many classrooms. They are equipped with modem teachong materials, necessary devices and facilities. Owe students are working hard. They have a good practice in the laboratories and at the plants. That is why our school-leavers are well prepared for their future profession. There is also a canteen where students can have a fine during the breaks.

Sport plays a very important part in the life of our technical school. Many competition and tournaments are held in the gymnasium and on the stadium.

It is possible to study computer and English language in the clubs.

Meetings and parties are often hold in the assembly hall. The students decorate it for special oceaslions to make it look more attractive.

The school year begins on the first of September, known as a Day of Knowledge. It is devided into two terms. At the and of every term the students have sessional examinations. They pass tests credits and examination in different subjects.

The students study the school subjects on the first year of studies, such as Mathematics, History, Ukrainian and Forcing Languages. And they study special subjects according to their profession special subjects according to their profession on the senior years of study. In general the tuition lasty for 4 years.

Uur daces started at 8.20 and last till 14.30. So we usually have 4 pairs of lessons a day. A pair lasts for 80 minutes. After the lessons many students go to work to the reading hall to prepare their homework there.

It is not easy to study at the technical school, but it is a very good and unforgettable time for us.

Memory work

Art is long, life is short – вік живи – вік учись

As is the workman so is the work – по роботі пізнати майстра

It is never too late to learn – вчитися ніколи не пізно

Where there is a will there is a way – де є хотіння там є і вміння

Live and learn – живи і вчися

Business before please – зробив діло – гуляй сміло

instead - замість

last - тривати
