This year our country celebrates the 105th anniversary of the formation of the Alash party. This is a significant event in the history of the Kazakh people. Alash activists laid the foundations for the formation of national statehood. The movement, which arose at the beginning of the XX century, became the pinnacle of the national liberation struggle of the Kazakh people. The Alash party stood at the origins of national democracy.

During the educational event “Great Names of the Great Steppe”, students worked with associations, discussed the goals that the “Alash” party set for itself, as well as its program. The chronology of the emergence of the party was restored, which marked the beginning of the creation of the Alash Autonomy. Also, the participants recalled the biography of party leaders and their contribution to the enlightenment of the people and the establishment of statehood. Foreign scientist of the Department of Foreign Languages Professor Dr.Rab Nawaz Lodhi took part in an educational event, where he learned from the participants a lot of interesting facts from the pages of the history of Kazakhstan, and in turn, he spoke about the political system of his homeland of Pakistan. Students of the group IS-22-1,2 under the guidance of a teacher Magauina G.M. prepared a theatrical stage, where they depicted the moment of the announcement of the verdict to the leaders of the Alash party – Alikhan Bokeikhanov and Mirzhakyp Dulatov. Students of the teacher Gizatulina A.F. (gr.ARCH-22-4) showed a video where they clearly talked about the educational, scientific and creative activities of the party members: A. Ermekov, A. Baitursynov, M. Zhumabaev, etc. Students of the gr. EE-22-2 under the guidance of teacher Tulegenova M.K. spoke on the topic “Alash idea and independence of Kazakhstan”, while the students of the teacher Svich N.A. (gr.GPR-22-3) prepared a video on the topic “The Legacy of the Alash Party”.

Despite the fact that creating a national political organization in our national history is not fully understood, many of the provisions put forward by the leaders of the Alash party still remain relevant. We consider it very important to know the history and significance of the patriotic organization, the purpose of which was the gradual transformation of Kazakh society and its adaptation to modern realities.
