      Graduates of an Orthodox school near Moscow become skilled wrestlers
      and rock players

      Moscow, February 6, Interfax - There is an extraordinary Orthodox
      school at Lobnya near Moscow. It has only 29 pupils and its
      leadership employs the best teachers.

      Among the compulsory disciplines at St. Philaret's School is
      choreography. This discipline favorite with the girls has been
      introduced recently. The girls give ballet movements a thorough
      workout at the barre and then put on heels to dance Russian folk dances.

      Religious instruction is given here along with computer basics and
      English. In addition, all the pupils are taught to play piano.

      'Education should be comprehensive. An Orthodox is a comprehensively
      developed person. As for the girls, they should be given a special
      attention', says the schoolmaster, Father Nifont.

      The local authorities describe it as a school of the future. It
      offers almost an individual education. The largest class includes
      only eight schoolchildren. Some classes have only one pupil. The
      graduates enter universities, become masters of sports in Greco-Roman
      wrestling, play in Moscow rock-groups, the Vesti-Moscow TV news has
      reported on Tuesday.
