Simeon Radev
          The fairy tale of
                The Story Begins
• The foreign language
  school “Simeon Radev”
  starts its tradition 15 years
  ago, thanks to a group of
  teachers, whose project
  for modern European
  education manages to
  overcome some difficulties
  caused of the
  conservatism of the
  educational system in the
  town of Pernik, often
  described as industrious,
  during the years of
  economical and political
• Тhe school was officially
  established on 08.11.1991,
     but in the course of its
    working activities it was
   forced to change several
  buildings. The new school
       1991/1992 year was
    officially opened on the
  main city square with lots
    of flowers, a ceremonial
      speech given by the
  director of the school and
  The Beatles‟ song – Let It
   Be. On the 17th October
    1991 the building of the
    school is changed for a
     last time to its present
    location, situated in the
       east part of the city.
•    Gradually the school forms its teaching
    traditions and cultural values. On the 19th
    January 1992 the first patronal festival was
    celebrated in honor of the birthday of the famous
    Bulgarian writer Simeon Radev main guest of it
    was the son of the writer, Trayan Radev.
• The first preparatory
  class, in English, was
  organized by the
  teachers Stefka
  Parvanova and two
  English men. An year
  later the classes became
  3 (two in English and one
  in French). However,
  soon they grown to 2
  English, 2 German and 1
  French, which itself
  pointed a great success.

In the history book of “Simeon Radev”
    we can find the names of many
  foreigners, who contributed for the
wholesome development of the school
 and its students. Such are – Pamela
  Cox, Ryan Bell, Rene Kafero, Mary
          Whinier, and so on.
•     The American teacher Ryan Bell has a
    special place in the history of “Simeon
    Radev”. He was a son of the Texas‟
    major, moreover a grandson of the
    inventor Alexander Bell. He wanted to
    become a congressman, but his destiny
    sent him in Pernik, and he shows
    enormous potential as an ecologist and
    lover of the Bulgarian nature. He goes
    back to America in 1998, and soon
    publishes his book for Bulgaria.
• In 1994 the French classes take part in
  The National French Festival in Plovdiv
  city, and they manage to receive a diploma
  for excellent performance as a whole, and
  a second prize for female acting given to
  Galia Plamenova.
