Since this year Yamal has introduced motivation payments for all schoolchildren, who represent the arctic region at the All-Russian academic Olympics. Their teachers will also be awarded. Prize money for students, who scored 100 points on the unified state examination, and also for winners of sports competitions and their coaches is also increased.
“But the most important thing we need to do is to create a system of individual work with our graduates. We should keep them in sight and offer decent conditions at home, in the north”, the governor of Yamal said. He instructed the department of education to organize work on creation of such a system.
According to Dmitry Artyukhov, it is necessary to reveal not only the talent for learning, but also to develop creative talents in children. For this purpose there are 29 schools of art in Yamal.
“I understand how difficult it can be for a family to buy a musical instrument. Last year schools of art received 150 new instruments that they can use after lessons as well. I suggest doubling this number this year”, the head of the region said and instructed the department of culture to launch a program to update schools of art and music in Yamal.
The governor of Yamal believes that creative work means not only teaching to draw, paint or play a musical instrument, but it also includes art of photography, dance or design. These areas will be developed in new centers for young people, art-residences. They will appear in Noviy Urengoy, Salekhard and Noyabrsk.
Dmitry Artyukhov is sure that there are many bright, talented and gifted children in Yamal. Alexandra Goryachkina, who has recently fought on equal terms for the title of the world chess champion, is an excellent example.
