The first-graders were the most excited, they walked through the school entrance for the first time hand in hand with the twelve-graders. Each of them was given a set of new textbooks. The school bell rang for the first time for 23 first-graders out of a total of 257 pupils. The Mayor of Tran-Tsvetislava Tsvetkova gave a sincere speech wishing all students a successful school year. The Mayor then handed out children’s books to the young children who had come to accompany their older siblings to see them start school
