On 11-15 September, Class II A with their Form Teacher, participated in the Week with Mathematics and Physics at the University of Technology in Łódź. It was already the 8th edition of this action. The students spent there 5 days attending classes especially prepared for them: they took part in lectures, classes, workshops and laboratories in mathematics and physics. “We could learn what the college lectures look like, see how different they are from school lessons, meet lecturers, feel like real students as we stayed at a dormitory”, the students said. In addition, high school students had the opportunity to visit the library of the University of Technology of Łódź and the LabFactor – a modern building of The Process Engineering and Environmental Protection. After classes, they were allowed to use sports facilities of the University Sport Center.
Hello School! The School Principal Mrs. Ewa Męcina welcomed all those who came to celebrate the beginning of the 2017/2018 school year. After a short speech made by the Principal, the floor was taken by Mrs. Bernacka, the Chairwoman of the Parents Council, who said that all the high school students should take every opportunity of studying hard in the oldest school in our town every single day, because knowledge is the greatest good of mankind. The letter sent by the Head of the Tomaszów District Authority addressed to the students and the teachers of our school was also read to the audience. This year, all participants of the ceremony also had a chance to listen to some extracts of “The Wedding” by Stanisław Wyspiański, as another edition of the National Reading, which took place in High School No. 1 at the beginning of the school year. The words of this difficult national drama were enriched by interesting choreography – students in folk costumes danced "Krakowiak”. In addition there was an exhibition of some paintings by Wyspiański, sometimes referred to as the “fourth bard” of Poland.
The Jarosław Dąbrowski High School No. 1 in Tomaszów Mazowiecki is implementing the Mobility Project for school education staff: “A Creative Teacher Means a Creative Student And a Conscious Citizen of Europe” of the Polish National Agency for the Erasmus+ Program.
The Project will be implemented for the period of 18 months, from 1 June 2017 to 30 November 2018.
The Project involves teachers and the school Principal. Thanks to the Erasmus+ Program, the teachers will be trained in methodology and in English and German languages in the European Union countries: Germany, United Kingdom, Ireland.
Foreign mobilities will allow establishing international co-operation, so that both the staff and the school itself will have the opportunity to learn about modern and innovative solutions in the field of school education. Experience and skills acquired will be used in daily didactic work and will contribute to better functioning of the school.
On 28th February 2017, there was qualification for the National Recitation Contest held in our School. The contestants recruited from Years 1 and 2. Most often they presented poems by W. Szymborska and K. K. Baczyński. The winner was Wioletta Madej of Class 2c. The two ex aequo runners-up were Natalia Bożyk of Class 1d and Iga Kapruziak of Class 2b. The top reciters will represent our School at the next stage of the recitation contest, which will be held at MOC [Youth Culture Club] on 10th March. Congratulations and we wish you many successes!
On 21st February, we celebrated the International Mother Tongue Day. On this occasion, the students of Class 2b prepared a happening. The school students participated in a competition of the knowledge about phraseology and grammar structures. Additionally, the youngest students – representatives of Year 1, had to cope with the so-called ‘tongue-twisters’. Frankly speaking, for the most part they managed to read difficult verbal combinations without any mistakes. We could also listen to nice performances of our school singers: Kamila Kamocka and Emilia Jaxy - Kwiatkowska, who prepared songs that required excellent diction. Each of the competition participants received a small gift. At the end, the Principal announced the results of the Monday dictation. It was Kornel Celoch, who became the Champion of Spelling (for the second time), followed by: Paulina Skura and Mateusz Błaszczyk. Congratulations!
This mysterious title covers a popular science show, watched by the students of Class 1c during a trip to the Planetarium in Łódź. It was an extraordinary lesson about the beginnings of aviation, enriched with curiosities associated with the dream of a human to fly to the skies. After the presentation, the students went to Teatr Powszechny [Common Theater] to enjoy the performance of the play by Edward Taylor entitled “A Wife Needed Immediately”.
