“Туған елге тағзым”

In 2012, Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools started their own patriotic project – research local history expeditions “Touhan elge taizym”. The project was developed by the autonomous educational organization “Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools” and is called upon to form students’ interest in their native country and to strengthen the sense of patriotism. A feature of educational trips is the exchange of routes between Nazarbayev Intellectual schools for acquaintance and research in the regions of Kazakhstan. Within the framework of the project, expeditionary groups visit almost all regions of the country, explore their flora and fauna, memorial sites, historical significance, culture, innovative facilities, architectural structures and much more.
In the expeditions from each Intellectual School, a group of schoolchildren of the 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th grades, selected for educational, creative, sports and other achievements, participates.
Carrying out such expeditions are fully results oriented. The students of the Nazarbayev Intellectual School after the expedition develop a number of skills and knowledge: knowledge, awareness of the region (its past, present and future), research and interview skills, selection of materials for use in practice, communication skills, group interaction, Physical and psychological endurance, the experience of making independent decisions and actions.
At the end of the expeditions, the collected materials are transferred to the school library for use by students during the following studies during the school year.
Conducting research local history expeditions “Touhan elge taizym” will become traditional. The next year, young researchers – the best students of the Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools will again go on fascinating trips to the most picturesque and unique corners of their native country.
