On February 2, 2023, the VIII Republican competition in Russian language and literature for grades 5-8 was held on the topic: “What did our grandparents and parents read when they were children?” This year, 268 students took part in the competition, including 66 eighth graders. Participants had to complete 66 tasks based on V. Krapivin's story "The side where the wind is." Our school was represented by 8a grade students Alisa Kayava and Alevtina Baranova. Out of 100 points, they received 83 points each. As a result, among the students of Narva, the girls took 2nd place and 10th place at the republican level! Congratulations to our girls on such a wonderful performance! We thank the teacher of the Russian language and literature Gorbatovskaya Tatyana Ivanovna for preparing the participants!
