First-year school children of Avdiivka town, whose parents work at the Avdiivka coke plant Metinvest Group, received on the eve of the Day of Knowledge comfortable backpacks with orthopedic inserts and school supplies as a gift from the plant.
The procedure of preparing young school children for the first academic year is still in process in Ukraine at all enterprises of Metinvest Group.
Modern backpacks were handed to the parents of 86 first-year school children at the traditional event called "ABVGDeyka", which was held on August 23 at the square near the Palace of Culture. This year Musa Magomedov, General Director of Avdiivka Coke Plant visited the event with the purpose to congratulate first-year school children.
The Head of the plant personally put on the shoulders of each student the backpacks presented by Metinvest and gave every child a handshake.
- Children, soon you will become students! I wish you good study, learn as much as possible and be able to become the human of worth - said Musa Sergoevich. – Metinvest Group presented to you these backpacks to ensure that you will be interested in studying and it will be easy to learn. I congratulate you on assuming the adult life!
