Witkacy with Zakopane in the background… 8.06 – 9.06. 2018.
Once again the oldest students from junior secondary school number seven went on a school trip to Zakopane. The main goal of the trip was not skiing, as you may suspect, but an impressive spectacle taking place in the Stanisław Witkacy Theatre. Not only did the students enjoy the show, but also the beauty of the mountains and long talks until the early morning hours. What were they about? It’s a secret…;)
Diplomas, school prizes and words of praise.
The twenty-ninth of May 2018 was a very special day for all the students from our school who were the winners in various kinds of competitions. They received diplomas, they heard words of praise, they got congratulations. Some of us were green with envy but… perhaps next year we will be the best.

This year’s spring has arrived quite late. The crocuses in front of our school have blossomed.
They are associated with the yellow Star of David, which was worn by Jewish people in countries occupied by the Nazi soldiers during the world war the second. The tiny, yellow flowers not only remind us of all the innocent Jewish men, women and children who were murdered during the war, but also about new life and new hope.
Each spring students from our school take part in the project entitled: “Crocus”. They plant more crocuses, go to the museum and learn about Holocaust. The oldest students from our school visit the Nazi concentration camp in Auschwitz- Birkenau. They learn about the importance of tolerance and respect for all people, in all aspects of life.
Workshops in England – 8- 13 March 2018
Twenty –nine students from our school have visited London, Cambridge and Canterbury. They were on workshops in England. The best test of their language skills was the fact that for five days they were staying with English families. The school trip to England was an unforgettable adventure: friendly, charming teachers and guides, breath-taking sights, unforgettable views, perfect English spoken by native speakers, a different cuisine and the cheerful English spring with golden daffodils in the parks and gardens.

The teachers received handmade souvenirs and enjoyed a hilarious parody of their typical behaviour during lessons and meetings with students. They couldn’t stop laughing. The show was first-rate. Finally, the students thanked their teachers for everything they do for them, for words of praise and criticism, which help teenagers become good students and better human beings.
School Autumn Festival 2017
On the seventh of October 2017 the thirteenth Autumn Festival took place in our school. The main organizer of the festival was Tomasz Szczepanik – the teacher of history. Till the last minute before the beginning of the festival the weather was extremely whimsical. It rained a lot and we doubted if the venture would be successful. Thanks to Mr Szczepanik’s unwavering faith and optimism, even one drop of rain hadn’t fallen since the beginning of the festival at one p.m. till the end, at about five p.m. The headmistress of Primary School number 39 and Secondary School number 7, Mrs Iwona Janek, welcomed all the guests: parents, teachers and students. Then, the celebration started. We enjoyed listening to the school choir choreographed by its conductor: Ms Karolina Stasiowska.We admired songs from all over the world performed by adult artists and we couldn’t take our eyes off young ballet dancers from the Ballet School which has existed in Primary School number 39 since August 2017.There was a lot of music, dance, laughter, delicious cakes, hot tea and coffee, traditional grilled sausages and hunter’s soup. There were also various kinds of competitions.We had a lot of fun together. Time flew very swiftly and when the clock struck five, we were surprised that it was high time to go home. We will be looking forward to the next Autumn Festival 2018.
See you in a year!
