September 1 is celebrated as Knowledge Day in Belarus. It is the day when children return to school. The school arranges an event called Lineika, to welcome first- graders. The Frist Bell ceremony, which is featured in the photo, is the highlight of this event. A student from the 11th grade carries a little girl from the first grade along the perimeter of the quadrangle lined up with schoolchildren and the girl is ringing a old traditional bell.
