YEREVAN — The Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Tekeyan Centre Fund of Armenia Vartan Ouzounian visited Armenia recently to resume the fund’s 2010 activities. At present, one of the main goals of the fund is to improve the situation of four Vahan Tekeyan schools, to secure better conditions for schoolchildren as well as to make the studies more interesting and of higher quality.
In 2010, the Tekeyan Fund has implemented a number of projects involving the four Tekeyan schools in various regions of Armenia. Thus, Ouzounian invited the headmasters of the schools and their deputies to the Tekeyan Centre to get their input.
The representatives of all the schools praised the fund’s initiative to support the Tekeyan educational establishments. In the name of Tekeyan schoolchildren, their parents and teachers, they expressed their gratitude to the fund for both financial and moral support, so important at this particularly difficult time economically.
According to the headmaster of Yerevan Vahan Tekeyan School, Anahit Khalatyan, the fund’s programs contribute to the establishment of strong ties not only between Tekeyan schoolchildren but also Tekeyan teachers. All the projects (educational, sports, cultural, etc.) turn the dull routine of pupils into inspiration and excitement and urge them to achieve better results at school.
Arsen Ohanyan, the headmaster of Garbi school, shared Khalatyan’s views and in addition to the above, he suggested that the fund should increase the number of project participants, as there are so many gifted pupils at schools that to choose a limited number of the best ones is a great problem for teachers.
The headmaster of the Vahan Tekeyan School of Gumri, Hovhannes Petrosyan, like his colleagues, expressed great satisfaction with the Tekeyan Fund. He also mentioned the kind and careful attitude of the fund’s whole staff.
