Today, Azerbaijan’s high- schools celebrate the Last Bell ceremony.

The Last School Bell is a traditional ceremony in the schools of some post-Soviet countries, including Azerbaijan. The celebration is carried out just after all the studies are finished, but before the final exams.

A symbolic last school bell is rung, usually by a first-grader.

The Last Bell festivities will be held only in the education facilities on June 14 in accordance with the order of Education Minister Mikayil Jabbarov.

In 2016-2017 academic year, as many as 110,638 students from the 9th form will finish the general education schools, 84,088 students will graduate from the 11th form and 723 from the evening schools (distance study).

Some 164,945 pupils will go to the first class in 2017-2018 education year.

The classes in the secondary schools will begin on September 15 and end on June 14.
