The integrity of the language influences on everything
The vision is improved and the language becomes better,
The hearing becomes sharper and the thought is aimed,
As the ryes, waggled by the wind.
The love and respect to the native language can create the miracles and give birth to the holiday, awake the patriotic feelings and the respect to own culture in the hearts of young generation of Ukrainians. The first year students have once more proved it with their diligent preparation for solemnities on occasion of the Day of Ukrainian Writing and Language that originates from 1997.

The festal evening reminded all present that the invention of writing is, say the least of, the second important invention of the humankind after language, as a human received the possibility to transfer its experience to the coming generation. The students with their active participation, creative actors' technique, initiative in organization and performance of the holiday persuasively proved that a Word really unites everyone! No matter what business a human was engaged, it is a creative personality, and this creativity helps to live and to create. Ukrainian language is not just a way of communication but our historical memory; it is an inexhaustible spiritual and cultural treasury, a living connection between the past and the present of our people. The language always united the people, acting as a nation making factor under conditions of absence of own great power statehood.
And you should grown and never fade,
Flower in poems and poetries,
As you have the tender and dreamy soul
of the great people.
