On December, like every other year, there was a “Christmas Tradition”
contest in VIII LOS in Częstochowa.
Kopernik’s students: ANNA LEŚNIAK and MARCIN KUNA from IIF have proudly represented our school, obtaining sequentially THE FIRST and THE EIGHTH place. The number of all participants was 30.
The awards ceremony took place in a pleasant atmosphere. LOS’s students
prepared a nice Christmas show, a lot of interesting games and delicious
cakes as a treat. We had much fun with meeting other contest’s participants and now we are looking for the next year edition.
INTEGRATING TRIP TO JANÓW !
On the 16th of September 2011, first year students went to a special integration trip to Janów near Częstochowa. The class teachers and tutors accompanied us. We arrived in the village in two groups (classes A-D and classes E-H). We met a trip operator who was wearing a very interesting outfit: blue trousers, an ashy waistcoat with inscription “Soutys” and big black glasses. The tutors divided us into smaller groups and they took us to see the solar system. This construction is the only one in Europe. At first we stopped next to the sun. The sun was also visible in other positions. Then we moved around the cycle of the planets. After that we relaxed a bit on a clearing in the forest, we drunk some tea and ate some grilled sausages. After a little rest and meal, we went in horse-drawn carts to Baba Jaga’s house in the woods. There we met a terrible Baba Jaga and we were treated to lemon juice. Then we went back into clearing, where we sang various songs and we played some team games. Later we all went back to the inn. Then the class presentations took place. They were all very interesting and funny . It was a really successful trip and most off all, the trip was a great chance to get to know each other better!

Gilo Solomampianino, a teacher-to-be from Madagascar, came to our school thanks to Comenius Programme. So before you read an interview with him prepared by Paweł Nowak from If , few words of introduction.
The Comenius Programme funds several types of actions related to school education. One of them is Comenius “mobility” which actions enable individuals to travel abroad to take part in a certain project. The one that Gilo took part in is called Assistantship which funds student teachers to work in a school abroad for up to ten months.
Student teachers assist in teaching. This gives the future teacher the opportunity to enhance their knowledge of other European languages, countries and school education systems and to improve their teaching skills. It also helps to improve language skills of pupils at the host school and can increase both their motivation to learn languages and their interest in the assistant’s country and culture.
Paweł Nowak talked to Gilo, we really encourage you to read what he said about the programme, our country and school.
