New semester at Hemayatul School

Afghanistan adopts the Islamic solar calendar (the Persian calendar) as its official calendar. March 21st is Nawruz (New Year) and the year 1389 starts today. Tomorrow, the 22nd is the new semester.
 
At the end of last year, children went to school for the first time at the Hemayatul School we built in Charikar District, Parwan Province.
