They had fun: they went boating, explored the world around them, got acquainted with plants, fished and fried on fires … The trip became extremely successful, so the traditions were introduced in all schools.

In 1876, the School of Physical Education was founded, to which guys from various states hurried. There they mastered a healthy lifestyle, received excellent health, strengthened the body.
