Primary schools across Iran opened their doors on Wednesday to children who started a new experience in their lives by entering classes.
First Grade Students in Hamedan, Iran
Classes across the country were filled with first-grade students who came to school a few days earlier than other students to get familiar with their learning places and the educational atmosphere there, JamejamOnline reported.
Seven-year-olds faced uncharted waters by stepping into schools and then entering classrooms, the very place they are supposed to spend about nine months to learn from A to Z of what they will later need in their lives. Right there they will take first steps in their long march toward knowledge and science.
Joy was in the air when the new incomers saw other children and tried to make immediate friends with people of their own age.
Official accounts say that 1.2 million children attended special ceremonies in primary schools for the first day of learning.
However, this very first day seemed somehow different from other days in that the new school goers had their parents, or one of them at least, at their sides to take part in joyful ceremonies.
Wednesday, September 19, was a day of happiness and fun for the first-time schoolgoers since they spent hours just playing and playing, but it would be business as usual as of Saturday (September 22) when Iran officially opens its school year.
