The Independence Day in Poland
On the eleventh of November Polish people celebrated the independence of their country.
Poland became free again in 1918, after 123 years in captivity.
The students from Primary School number 39 and children from the kindergarten number 124 spent a festive evening together. They recited poems and sang songs about the times of fight for independence.
All Saints Day
Just before All Saints Day the students visited the cemetery in Krakow, where seventy-nine victims of the Nazi murder from January 1945 are buried. They were women, men and children, the inhabitants of Dąbie – the district of Krakow, where Primary School number 39 is located. The students lit candles on the graves and prayed for the souls of the people.Photos
"National Education Day"
On the 13th of October we celebrated “ National Education Day”, commonly called “Teacher Day”.
The student government of Primary School no 39 and Secondary School no 7 prepared a festive school appeal. The students expressed their good wishes for teachers. There were reflections on education and everyday hard work at school. On this special day, the first students from Primary School no 39 were warmly greeted by their older schoolmates and the student government.
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!
THE SOLEMN BEGINNING OF A SCHOOL YEAR 2017/2018
The school year 2017/2018 has begun. On the fourth of September students and teachers said ”good bye” to summer holidays. On Monday we began the school year in a new reality. As a result of the reform of education in Poland the Junior Secondary School number seven has been transformed into Primary School number 39. The previous head teacher of the school – Anna Marona and the present head teacher – Iwona Janek, have been very successful at encouraging both students and teachers to do their best. The school has earned the trust of parents and the admiration of the City Council.
During the festive school assembly on the fourth of September 2017 parents, teachers and students met again after two-month summer holidays. Parents were keeping their fingers crossed for their children. Excited students were talking about their summer adventures, but at the same time they were happy to meet their school mates again. The head teacher – Iwona Janek wished the students a lot of perseverance and passion in gaining knowledge. Finally, the students and form teachers met to talk about the plans for the whole school year ahead. Good luck for all of us! :)
