The opening ceremony of UWC Dilijan College on October 11 was attended by approximately 1000 people. The guests were asked to make a contribution to the school’s library and bring their favorite book for the collection.
On the opening day, the library of UWC Dilijan expanded its collection by nearly 1000 books, ranging from fine literature and encyclopedias to scientific publications.
Head of the Representative Office of RD Group in Russia Roman Tkachenko and the company’s delegation donated to the school some of the timeless classics of Russian literature: Fyodor Dostoevsky’s The Idiot, Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina, Mikhail Bulgakov’s Master and Margarita and White Guard, Boris Pasternak’s Doctor Zhivago and Ivan Bunin’s The Village.
Oleg Zhukov, General Director of RD Group, gave the students collections of the works of Fyodor Dostoevsky, Alexander Pushkin and Anton Chekhov and wished them the best in their exploration of the great Russian culture.
CONSTRUCTION OF UWC DILIJAN COLLEGE
RD Group performed three key roles in the project to develop UWC Dilijan College: the asset management company RD became a co-investor in the project; the construction and finishing work was carried out by RD Group; and RD Management will fulfill the facility management role for the educational complex.
Gagik Adibekyan, Chairman of the Board of Directors of RD Group:
“The boarding school UWC Dilijan College is situated in the mountains of Armenia on the boundary of Dilijan National Park. Taking into consideration the standards of UWC and the environmental requirements, world-class companies, technologies and experts were engaged in the project planning. We take pride in the fact that we were trusted with the construction of the school. I think that this became possible thanks to the fact that over the course of nearly 20 years RD Group has proven itself to be a reliable partner, implementing major projects in Moscow, Luxembourg and several regions of Russia.”
