Moscow Boys and Girls Celebrate Their Last Day of Schooling

mosnews: „May 25th in Russia is the day when school-leavers celebrate their last day at school. The day is called the „last ring” day, and the symbol of the holiday is a tiny bell that the youngsters wear somewhere on the breast.

The day usually begins with a posh ceremony at school, with teachers and headmasters saying goodbye to their students. The students usually prepare a concert to thank the teachers for all the hard work they’ve done.“
