Pan Tadeusz Museum - about freedom and more

On 6th November, the Polish language preIB group visited Pan Tadeusz Museum, where they had a chance not only to see the pages from the national poem manuscript and attentively analyse its author's handwriting, but above all to see how important issues of the contemporary world can be found in the romantic tradition, for example the different definitions of freedom. But it wasn't just the solemn and dignified atmoshpere that the students experienced at the museum - they also hunted a wild boar, arranged the tableware from Soplicowo and listened to music of the romantic era. The museum outing to Pan Tadeusz was the starting point for IB students' cultural education, with many other interesting museums of Wrocław waiting for them along the way.

A REMEDY AGAINST AUTUMN WEATHER

On 26th October 2017, EKOLA theatre enthusiasts from primary, junior high and high school, along with Ms Agata Polańska, the Polish teacher, went to Teatr Komedia, where they watched Marc Camoletti' comedy „Pomoc domowa” (The Help) directed by Wojciech Dąbrowski; an extremely funny play, which made the students burst out with laughter throughout. The excellent acting by Dorota Wierzbicka-Matarrelli as the housemaid and her employers' close confidant who would always have a witty repartee at the ready, was rewarded with great applause from the audience at the end of the performance. It turned out to be an excellent remedy against the gloomy autumn weather.

Helpful as always

EKOLA students never fail when it comes to supporting charities, they frequently help those who need it. By participation in the charity campaign „Pomaganie przez odkręcanie” (Helping by opening), run by the „bliżej szczęścia” Foundation, they contributed by collecting lots and lots of bottle tops to the fund-raising for the renovation of Care and Education Facility no 3 in Sosnowiec. They have just received a letter of thanks for their help and appreciation of their attitude and for sure will be willing to join other campaigns undertaken by the Foundation.

13th International Short Story Festival

In October, as usual, IB students wandered around the cultural spots of Wrocław (Spanish Bookshop, Dizajn BWA Gallery, Musical Theatre CAPITOL) in order to participate in discussions, meet authors, but above all listen to beautiful literature read out aloud. The 13th International Short Story Festival revolved around the motto: „Me and my foe", yet the atmosphere was splendid and debates - friendly. One of EKOLA Polish teachers, Ms Agata Polańska, took part in one of them whose topic was the modern canon of literary works. Students will surely remember the interestingly arranged space of CAPITOL Theatre, where the words of stories about love, mystery and time, read out not only in Polish, but also in Basque, Korean or Hungarian, created wondrous worlds to remember and experience not only during the festival.

On the radio

On 26th September 2017, IB2 students along with their class tutor, Mr Tomasz Budkowski visited Radio Wrocław - a broadcaster for the region of Lower Silesia. The visit started with the museum of the radio, which moved everyone back to technological past. Soon after, the students came back to the 21st century, when they had a chance to admire very modern studios and compare them with those from the past. Students listened to the history of the Wrocław radio and found out a lot about the profession of radio journalists and operators. They could see how radio producers and editors work live. The visit taught students quite a lot about the very place at Karkonoska Street as well as various technicalities of radio work, but above all they could see how it is to actually work on the radio, asked questions and found themselves in the middle of the world which so far they had known only as the audience of different radio programmes.
