Metalloinvest allocates RUB 20mn to preparations for the new academic year in Zheleznogorsk

5 September 2018

Metalloinvest has allocated approximately RUB 20mn to prepare and equip Zheleznogorsk schools and nurseries for the new academic year.

Metalloinvest works in partnership with the town administration to provide solutions to many challenges in the development of the education system. As part of the “School Windows” programme, old prefabricated window units in some institutions have been replaced with new units. The modern plastic prefabricated window units have been made using energy efficient technology, ensuring safety and comfort for children. This is the second year that Metalloinvest has allocated RUB 10mn for this purpose.

Deputies of the town Duma and Mikhailovsky GOK employees proposed the installation of outdoor exercise machines for open air classes at schools #3, #6 and #10. Renovation works have been carried out at nurseries and sheltered shades have been installed.

At the beginning of academic year, seven Zheleznogorsk educational institutions who were winners of Metalloinvest’s “Our Future” competition will receive grants from the Company for new equipment and innovative educational technology. This year, the competition’s grant fund amounted to RUB 2.5mn.

Traditionally, low income families and large families in the town receive gifts and financial aid from Metalloinvest ahead of 1 September to purchase clothes, shoes and school equipment. This year, Metalloinvest supported 30 families.

On the Day of Knowledge, representatives of Mikhailovsky GOK and Deputies of the town Duma presented students with commemorative bags containing a colouring book about nature, information hand-outs and a t-shirt with the Metalloinvest logo.
