In recent years, Turkmen scientific and educational centres have been actively building up the potential for fruitful international cooperation in the virtual format that has become traditional. Many higher educational institutions held a series of such joint events during the first weeks of the new academic year. The Institute of International Relations of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan, conducting fruitful activities to expand international relations, was most active. To date, the Institute has signed 25 cooperation agreements promoting effective partnerships with research centres and diplomatic academies. Thematic online bridges stretch on a regular basis from it to different countries near and far.

Orentation towards versatility of education

A marathon of thematic dedications to the motto of the year “Turkmenistan – the Home of Neutrality” is taking place at specialised school 21 in Ashgabat. The new educational institution was opened in a solemn atmosphere in Ashgabat on the first autumn holiday – the Day of Knowledge and Students. The new school, located at the intersection of two city highways – A. Niyazov Avenue and Ahmet Yasavi Street, hospitably opened the doors for its first schoolchildren who had passed the tests the day before. Given the status of the school, the brightest representatives of the intellectually gifted and talented children, who live in different parts of the main city of our country, gathered under its roof.

Life according to Schedule or about the daily routine of schoolchildren

In the child’s performance and wellbeing, everything matters: from waking up to sleep, according to medical experts. How to make sure that the child does not stay up until midnight and finds time for rest and hobbies in the usual scenario of school life? How to make a student’s daily routine correctly? The editorial staff of NT will try to answer these questions based on the recommendations of experts. A typical picture: children stay up until late for lessons or games, and in the morning they cannot easily wake up, they go to school sluggishly. Hence fatigue, drowsiness and grumpiness. The reason for this is a simple non-observance of the daily routine. Unfortunately, we forget that humans are part of nature, and it is so arranged that our body has periods of decline in activity and, conversely, an increase in efficiency. Often, due to lack of knowledge, we confuse this time. When children need to rest, we make them do homework, when they need to study hard, they walk. Few people know that the first wave of our activity occurs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the second wave falls on the evening, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. It is at this time that it is good for studying, doing homework and going to sport sections and clubs.
