Good morning? My name is …. And I’m going to tell you
about our school and about the things that make a school your second

School №2 is the oldest one in the city of Chernihiv.
It was founded on the 15th of October 1865 on the initiative of Prince Golitsyn, who
was the Governor of Chernihiv at that time. There were only 92 pupils –
girls only - at school during its first year. In 1899 a new beautiful
building of the school was built on the territory of the Rampart. It
had spacious classrooms, a beautiful assembly hall. Many wonderful
teachers did their best to educate pupils. Among them there were
Kotsubynskys, Lubov Delmas – a famous singer, scientist Dyadichenko, composer
Chernyak, poet Ignatenko and many others. During the war the building
of the school was ruined but lessons never stopped. After the war the
building was restored and the hoary Rampart again heard merry
voices of boys and girls who were hurrying to the school.
school№2 moved to a new 3-stored modern building, which is situated near the bank of the river Stryzhen. In 19…
it got the status of specialized school with advanced studying of foreign
languages. Now there are 102 teachers and more than 800 students at
school, among them a lot of winners of All- Ukrainian Students Olympiad
in different subjects. We love our school and are really proud of
We have everything to make our school a real second
home – tidy, comfortable and well-equipped classrooms, good sports
facilities, friendly atmosphere. We have a Computer Study
Laboratory with the Internet access. There are lots of computers there and
every student feels free to come and use the Web resources to
prepare for the lessons.Of course, our school faces the problems which are
natural for the economic situation in the country. The school lacks
modern up-to date equipment, such as DVD players and computers in each
classroom, multimedia boards, flip charts instead of
old-fashioned blackboards and so on. But we have much more valuable things – warm
and friendly atmosphere, highly-professional and tolerant teachers
and all my friends, - that make my school a real second home for

a real journey you’ve made, or you can invent one. Include this
information: Who did you go with? Where did you go? How did you go
there(way of travelling)? What was good and bad about your journey?
Good morning, my name is …. I’m a student of the 9th
form and I would like to tell you about the journey I took last summer.
Last summer my parents and I visited Turkey
for the first time. It was unforgettable experience. We booked an all-inclusive trip at the travel agency
in Chernihiv, so we didn’t need to worry about anything. We went to Turkey
by plane, so we arrived at the airport Boryspol 2 hours before the fright to check in, weigh and label
our luggage and pass the passport control and customs. The weather was
fantastic so there wasn’t any delay and our plane took off strictly
according to the time-table.
The trip was not very interesting but comfortable and
fast. At the airport in Istanbul
we got on a coach and went to the town of
Kemer, where our hotel was situated. On the way there
we passed through 3 tunnels and in the 3rd tunnel our guide told us to
close our eyes, rise our hands and think of our cherished desires – he
said they would come true! Our hotel was situated in a picturesque place near the
town of Kemer. here were 2 water rides and 3 swimming pools on the
territory of the hotel. The hotel had 5 restaurants: Chinese, Turkish,
Mexican, Italian, where you can taste the national cuisine of those
countries and a fish restaurant with delicious seafood. A t about you can hear the morning pray from the minaret
of the nearby mosque. It is repeated in the afternoon and
in the evening, when it is peace and quiet and there is no discos
there. On the territory of the hotel there was a Turkish
market on Fridays, where they sold different souvenirs and things you
could buy to remind you of your travelling. There were magnits, clothes,
sweets and Turkish carpets which were really marvelous. We went on some excursions there and I liked two of
them very much.
The first was to a place called Palucate. Palucate
means "Cotton Castle”, because there you could see white slopes of
the mountains. They are white due to the fact that warm mineral water,
full of different salts, flows down the slopes and gives the white
colour to them. There we visited the so called Cleopathra’s Pool, filled
with pure mineral water. You can swim there no more than 15 minutes,
because of carbon dioxide that is on the surface of the water.
The second excursion was to 3 places at once/ the
first was Demir – an ancient city where is a splendid church
of St. Nicolai.
He was a Christian bishop, who did a lot of good and was killed
for his faith. Then we went to Mira – it is also an ancient town that
was founded in the 5th century - there you can see the remains of the
Rome amphitheater and a wonderful shop where you can buy
different things made of onix. After that we went on a boat trip to the
of Kekova. In the clear water of the sea you can observe the
ruins of ancients buildings which were destroyed by the massive
earthquake many centuries ago and sank onto the bottom of the sea near the
We spent two unforgettable weeks in Turkey
and I strongly recommend everybody to take a chance and go there some day to
enjoy fantastic rest.
