Visit from Mr. Maxim Poletaev

Today our school welcomed a very distinguished guest from Russia, Mr. Maxim Poletaev, a very close friend of our Principal. Mr. Poletaev is a Vice-Chairman of Sberbank, the biggest Eastern European bank. He gave a short lecture to our students in which he underlined the value of quality education in a rapidly changing modern society where new professions and occupations demand more and better education. He also described his deep respect for the British educational system and the value it offers to young people in raising their aspirations for their future careers. Finally, to the delight of both audience and visitors, he cut a cake in the shape of the famous Russian Matryoshka doll.
