Minister of Defence of Georgia attended the final match of the basketball tournament held in Rustavi 7th Public School and awarded the winner team with the Cup.

“It is a very important event. I think that a lot of Georgian schools where our Georgian heroes got education should frequently arrange such events. Young generation should know about the heroes and their histories who studied in their schools, walked in their streets and lived in their towns. In this way much healthier generations will be grown up and the country will be more successful.” said Tinatin Khidasheli.

After 2008 August War, the basketball tournament after Vakhtang Gzirishvili is held in Rustavi 7th Public School every autumn. This year 9th and 11th school pupils met each other. The Cup of the Tournament was granted to 9th and 11th grade pupils.
