Polish school of Zabreze
On 5th December 2019 class 1cg under the supervision of the school psychologist organised the Kindness Day. The aim of this day was to show the school community that it is important to be kind, nice and friendly to one another as it makes life much easier and pleasant. Posters with positive and nice quotations where hung around the school. Students had “nice” tasks to do e.g. give somebody a hug, smile at somebody, say something nice to a person they don’t know. All the people at school could vote for the most friendly and nicest class and students could vote for the kindest teacher at school.
Moreover, students brought toys which will be given seriously ill children with cancer and heart problems who have to stay in hospital. Students also prepared Christmas cards for those children.
Job creation skills
In our school all students have regular classes connected with career guidance during which
they discuss issues like job and educational markets or jobs needed in the future. They also do
psychological tests and quizzes connected with their hobbies, job interests and character
features which are aimed at helping them to choose the right direction of studies. During these
lessons students learn how to deal with stress and changes in life and how to communicate
and solve conflicts in a group. All first-grade students had the opportunity to do a test which
helped them to choose the subjects which they will be taught at the extended level in next
If anybody feels the need they can talk to the teachers responsible for the career guidance and
get some personal advice on making decisions about their career choice and further education.
Our school also cooperates with Górnośląska Wyższa Szkoła Handlowa (Katowice Business
University) in Katowice and Politechnika Śląska (Silesian Technical University) in Gliwice.
There are regular meetings organised for students with the lecturers and professors who
describe the courses organised at these universities and talk about projects which take place
National Art Competition Castles and Palaces in Poland
This spring the students from our school took part in a national art competition entitled “Castles and Palaces in Poland” which was organized by Powiatowy Młodzieżowy Dom Kultury in Będzin. The students were supposed to show a Polish castle or a palace using a technique of their choice. They could draw a sketch, paint a picture, engrave or make a sculpture.
The aim of this competition was to awake creativity in children and make children active in an artistic way as well as develop their artistic sensitivity and give them the possibility to exchange their artistic experiences.
