- 08.02.2016 Winter Olympic Games took place at Alabuga International School The 5th of February, 2016 at Alabuga International School was marked by arrangement of the Winter Olympic Games. All students, teaching staff as well as administration of the school took part in this event. The competitions had a rather unusual form. Though February the weather was very warm, one could notice not only bright sun and the birdsongs but puddles on the streets as well. However our event managers were not thrown into confusion by this: the Games were moved to the sports hall and turned out to be as wintery as they could be outside.
