Since the schoolyear started our school football team has been competing with other high schools from Częstochowa. It wasn’t easy, but after winning 7 matches they got to the big final which took place on October 10th. We were playing with Bieganski high school. Both teams were really well-prepared for this match but only one could win.
The day was cold and foggy, not good for a game, and after around 20 minutes of the match, it started raining… But even the rain couldn’t stop our team. They scored two goals, the first one gained Krzysztof Glin, and the second one, after only a few minutes, Bartosz Lis. But then a while after that our team lost 2 goals. Fortunately, nobody gave up. Few minutes before the end, Kajetan Sikora scored the third, and the last goal for Kopernik high school. And that was the end. We won the big finale with Bieganski high school with the score of 3:2. Our team became the champion second time in a row. Neither freezing could nor the rain could stop our footbalers. We hope to see them winning in the next, regional gameplays.

On the occasion of European Day of Languages on 26 September the City Hall in Częstochowa invited high school students to take part in a debate of professional translators, under the heading “Znajomy język obcy” (”Familiar foreign language”). Our students had a chance to see what being a translator of languages such as English, Italian, Spanish, German or Chinese is all about. Also they got to know many types of translation. The students that graduate from school this year could ask anything about the profession of a translator.
The debate allowed us to discuss important aspects of the translator’s work: advantages and disadvantages of the profession, personal features that translators need to have, and the importance of the need to broaden our knowledge, so the translation is clear and understandable.
The debating translators talked about the obstacles they had to overcome to be professionals, and also told students some funny stories that they had experienced.
The students left the City Hall being encouraged to do their best to become professional translators 🙂

It is said that Prince Willilam with his wife Kate are expecting next baby! That would be their third child. So Prince George and Princess Charlotte will have a brother or sister. People said that Kate is pregnant after visting Poland, beacause in Poland Kate hinted her husband she wanted to have more kids. Would it be Polish Royal Baby?
UK bookies reported a run on the next royal baby’s name. They say it’wll be a princess. According to oddschecker.com, most betting sites favoured the name is Alice (at 10 to 1 odds). BoyleSports puts both Alice and Victoria at 8 to 1 each.
Both names have got royal precedent.Victoria would honor the beloved Queen Victoria, who ruled from 1837 to 1876. And Alice also has history with the royal hierarchy, considering Queen Victoria’s second daughter was graced with the name. Alice was also the name of Princess Alice, Duchess of Gloucester, who was Queen Elizabeth’s aunt.Some other popular suggestions include Alexandra or Mary.
When it comes to boys, Arthur and Philip are the most favourable. Arthur is both Prince Charles and Prince William’s middle name, which makes it a strong contender. Philip is the name of the baby’s grandfather.
Some other suggestions in the baby name game include Diana (at 25 to 1 odds), as well as Donald !!! (as in US President Trump- at 50 to 1 odds),according to Sky Bet, a British gambling cpmpany.
