The Polish Language School Writing and Drawing Competitions.
On Saturday, February 6, Gr. 4 – Gr. 8 students participated in a writing competition (the most beautiful composition in the Polish language), organized by the Polish Teachers Association of Canada. It was the 56th competition of that kind. The children and youth were divided into 6 age groups (different topics each): Group 1 – Gr. 4, 5, 6; Group 2 – Gr. 7, 8; Group 3 – Gr. 9, 10; Group 4 – Gr. 11, 12. The topics can be found in the Picture Gallery. Each participant was to choose one topic to be developed without any one’s help. The best composition from each group is to be sent to Toronto for evaluation.
At the same time the younger children had an opportunity to participate in a drawing competition. The suggested topic: “A Good Deed” had to do with the Year of Mercy, announced by Pope Francis. There was introduced an innovative procedure letting the children judge one another’s entry. Moreover, all submitted drawings will be displayed at the Poetry Recitation Contest, in April, 2016.

24 stycznia 2016 po poludniu odbyla sie szkolna zabawa dla dzieci klas 0-VI; wszystkim humory dopisywaly, gdy budowalismy te zabawe razem przez ponad dwie godziny poprzez taniec, gry zespolowe i mnostwo tanczacych z nami balonikow. Mozna sie bylo pokrzepic pysznym ponczem, slodyczami, a na koniec pizza. Zadbalismy tez o tych rodzicow, ktorzy pozostali z nami przez caly czas. Organizacja zabawy byla wspanialym doswiadczeniem wspolpracy Komitetu Rodzicielskiego i Grona Pedagogicznego. Dziekujemy!
Kregle dla mlodziezy. W niedziele, 31 stycznia, prawie 20-osobowa grupa mlodziezy z klas VII-XII spotkala si? na kreglach. Doszlismy do wniosku, ze skoro mlodsze dzieci maja swoja zabawe, to i naszej mlodziezy tez cos zaproponujemy. Dwie popoludniowe godziny minely wedlug prostego planu – wspolna gra w kregle i wspolne zajadanie hot-dogow w przerwie, a przy tym mozliwosc poznania sie troche lepiej w wiekszym gronie. Uczniow szkoly sredniej bylo mniej, bo akurat jest to czas egzaminow semestralnych. Tu tez swoje zaangazowanie wykazal Komitet Rodzicielski.

We use text books published by “Krokus” in Mississauga, “Polska Macierz” in England and some in Poland. We try to make the children aware that they are Canadian citizens of the Polish cultural background. Students get involved in various programs directed by their teachers, such as: the 3rd May Anniversary Celebrations, Mother’s Day, Christmas Play (“Jaselka”), national anniversaries, artistic programs, writing competitions, Polish poetry recitation. They also take turns as liturgical readers at the Sunday Eucharist. The whole school participates in the end of the school year ceremonies receiving report cards. Besides, two students (one graduating from Gr.8 and the other from Gr. 12) get special diplomas sent by the Polish Teachers Association in Canada, “A Student of the Year” certificate.
