During the spring holidays children from foster and multi-children families of Elizavetovka, the Primorskyi district, visited Zaporozhye in order to diversify nonschool time with bright emotions and unforgettable impressions. An interesting, perceptive schedule for the day has been arranged by the Employees of the “Klubok” club, and also by the kids’ parents. At first the children visited the Central Administration of Ukrainian Ministry of Extreme Situations in Zaporozhye region – the exhibition of the fire-rescue service and the fire department No.1, where the exhibition guide– Romanchenko Anatoliy Ivanovich, told about the fire extinguishers’ types, explained the correct way of extinguishing a fire, and narrated the measures taken to avoid seats of ignitions and a lot more. The retired colonel of the fire-extinguishing headquarters in the Zaporozhye region, the participant of fire extinguishing at Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, conducted a competent briefing on safety measures with household devices and told the children many interesting, breath-taking stories from his own experience of fire extinguishing.

At that stage the program for the young lovers of active rest was not finished. By the appointed time the students of Music College named after Maiboroda Platon Illarionovich were already waiting for the children. Senior students of the college prepared an interesting performance in the form of a music fairy tale especially for the guests. The theorists told about the types of music instruments, their peculiarities and differences. And in order to make the performance more comprehensible and understandable for perception, the musicians demonstrated the playing of the violin, viola, contrabass, trumpet, drum, flute and many others music instruments to the little listeners.
