My name is Katherine. I live in Saint – Petersburg and go to All Girl’s school, called “Alexandrinskaya Gymnasia”.
Saint-Petersburg is famous for its unforgettable museums. They can be devoted to famous people or different things or events. But actually I would like to tell you about our school museum- the museum of the history of women education. In 1764 the Education Society for Grand Girls at the Novodevichy Smolny Convent was founded. The Empress Alexandra Fiodorovna, the wife of the Emperor Nicholas the First, took the Smolny Institute and other schools for girls under her patronage. She made a lot for the development of public education in Russia. The exposition of the museum helps to represent the atmosphere of the gymnasia classroom in the pre-revolutionary Russia – the desks and cupboards are built according to the old drawings, at the wall there is a piano made at the beginning of the previous age. The museum exposition includes the samples of the gymnasia uniform – coffee-coloured dresses with capes and sleeves made of white fabric. The items in the glass cases are connected with the history of the nobility domestic culture: the album with hand-written poems, textbooks, needlework boxes.
The museum plays a specific role in the school’s life. Every year the festival of Initiating into Gymnasia Pupils takes place in the White Hall of the Grand Palace in Petergof. It’s the favourite residence of the Empress Alexandra Fiodorovna. On the 13th of July, on the Empress’s birthday, the girls of our gymnasia participate in the festival of the White Rose. It’s organized in her favourite palace named Cottage.
Our museum isn’t marked on the map of Saint-Petersburg. But as many other museums it saves the historical memory for the future generations.
