Every year on 21st March in our school takes place a traditional school celebration known as “Kopernikalia”.
This year students had to wear costumes matching to their classrooms design. Our school had never looked like that before. In the hallway we could see the students dressed up like villagers, tourists, devils, animals, dancers from the 70s and also Greek Gods. The moment visiting different classrooms was like moving in time. The jury, consisting of our Headmistresses, some teachers and school representatives, visited all the classrooms in order to give some points as it was a kind of competition between the classes from our high school. After that the jury tasted and evaluated all the gingerbreads baked for this occasion.
Then in our gym a talent show took place. Some of the students sang and presented different sketches. This year, there was also a beauty contest– the representatives of different classes challenged for the titles: “Miss”, “Miss Woman” and “Miss Man”.
In the end, the Head Teacher promulgated the winners of all the competitions.
When it comes to the best-looking classrooms, 3g (Jungle), 3h (Hell) and 2g (Mental Hospital) were the best ones. The best gingerbread was baked by 3g (very original shape – outlines of our country, very tasty one!). It looked like that!
The classes 1f and 1g got the first prize as well. Congratulations!
“Kopernikalia” is a day when everybody forgets about schoolwork, exams and problems. This is the time for good fun, integration and to spend time with friends. We have to congratulate all the participants and thank for organizing this fantastic day for us!
Here we present some more photos:

We would like to remind you that today is Saint Patrick’s Day, Ireland’s national holiday. Read some facts from Country Fact File:
Name: Ireland, Eire, The Emerald Isle
Location: island in the North Atlantic Ocean
Size: 70,273sq km
Irish traditional dish: Irish stew (main ingredients are lamb or mutton, potatoes, carrots and anions)
Did you know??? 22 presidents of the USA including John F.Kennedy, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, are of Irish descent.
And now have a look at 2 memorable photos taken in 2009. They both show hand made materials prepared for a competition that we won! The first one presents a map of Ireland with 5 chosen places worth visiting. And the second one-a beautiful Irish blessing which we decided to put on the first page of our hand made album. They both bring back nice memories because we had a chance to visit this breathtaking island ( a trip to Ireland for the winners: 5 students and the teacher) and when you once go there, you will always wish to go back…

On 10th March was an Open Day in our school by which everyone who wants to join our high school could come and see how everything looks like there. Every person who strided the door was warmly welcomed. Students from our school were showing around the school with all of its interesting places. Everyone who came could talk with our students to get to know everything that is important to decide whether to go to our school. We had nice presentations, a show of our theatre group and a lot of really interesting things that everybody could see. It was the third time when we took part in Kopernik’s open day, first time was as visitors and next ones as students, however, this open day was definitely the best one. There were a lot of people who came – approx. 1200 guests. That’s a lot. Four of us ( Patrycja Korzeniec, Katarzyna Patyk, Kinga Kamińska and Martyna Tyras) were presenting one of the class profile with three leading subjects (class f):English, Polish and History. We have met a lot of nice people with whom we were chatting and laughing and we hope they are going to choose the best school in Częstochowa and we will meet in September.
