September 1st is a big day for every child, and an opportunity for adults to remember their childhood days. Over 12,000 first-graders will go to school in Novosibirsk this year. When you see them you too may recall your own time in school, your first class, your first teacher. You may remember how for the first time in your life the class door closed and your parents, grandmothers, and grandfathers remained outside, and how a different life, a life of growing up, began.
