The action “The Book Conquers the World” was held today at the head office of the AEO “Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools” in the city of Nur-Sultan.
For the third year in a row, employees of the central office and the centers exchange books. This year, the Center for Pedagogical Excellence joined the campaign. By tradition, each participant could get the desired book and make a gift to a colleague, whose name becomes known only at the time of delivery.
In honor of the International Day of Books and Copyright, large-scale book exchange was organized in the Intellectual Schools throughout Kazakhstan. NIS staff and students took part in this action. This year, parents were particularly active. They noted the significance of this event in bringing the public to reading.
- For the first time I participate in this event. From the educator of the school I received the book "Mom, I am on my own." I think that it will become my handbook and will help in raising children. We as parents need this kind of literature, Nurgul Sailaubaikyzy pointed out, a parent from the Kyzylorda Intellectual School.
Despite the single format, each school tried to bring its own distinction to the holiday. For example, a book fashion show took place in Taraz, where students of the school presented images of heroes from their favorite books. Interesting facts about books, reading, writers and libraries also awaited the participants of the action. A special quiz was organized in Semey, Aktobe residents creatively approached the process and decided to share not only a book, but also presented surprises in the form of postcards, bookmarks, sweets, and in the capital school of Physics and Mathematics the students prepared a dance number “100 books”.The students of the republican school “Zhas Ulan” also took part in the book publishing event at the NIS of the Chemistry and Biology in Shymkent.
Every year, Bookcrossing gathers about 9,000 book admirers. The main goal of the unique educational project is the formation and popularization of the reading culture, the creation of a collaborative environment among the members of the large NIS community.
- Now we are planning to disseminate the experience of holding such an action to all schools of the republic. After all, it brings great benefits - it develops readers' literacy, literary taste, helps to establish communication and increase the number of book readers, - Aida Agadil stated, deputy director of the NIS development department.
