A visit of Le Mans high school students in France

On May 23, 2018, we were visited by a group of middle school students from the city of Le Mans in France, from a school associated with UNESCO. After a short acquaintance, we went on a tour of Kazimierz, and then in the Lyceum Lyceum, first-class students learning French presented the most important advantages and tourist attractions of Krakow: monuments, legends, universities, museums and festivals. The meeting resulted not only in the possibility of conversing in the colloquial version of the French language, but also a mutual declaration of willingness to maintain contacts.



Workshops with the Jagiellonian University linguist, prof. dr hab. Kazimierz Sikora

On June 7, 2018, at our school, we discussed with the Professor about the language of inscriptions on buildings in the public urban space of football hooligans.



Old and new outdoor games and activities

Task stalking, jogging and walking are a proposal for the last time in the pre-vacation period – physical education lessons for students in classes: 2a1, 2a2, 2h, 2c, 2e, 1a1, 1b, 2i, 2b. In addition to orientation in the field, solving hidden educational puzzles, motor tasks and physical activity in the open air, in the aura of W. Bednarski Park and Krakus Mound, it is a great opportunity to remind the safety rules for the upcoming holidays. WE RECOMMEND !!!

4th July with the participation of VI High School

With the participation of Ambassador Paul Jones and Consul General Walter Braunohler, we joyfully celebrated not only Independence Day USA in Fort Kleparz, but also the 100th anniversary of Polish-American diplomatic relations. There were also touching speeches, a traditional flag-shaped cake and accompanying artistic events. The only sad accent was the fact that for Consul General Walter Braunohler these were the last days in Poland… Thank you for everything!
