WINTER BREAK... LET'S RELAX!

On 28th January 2019 in Lower Silesian schools, there started a two-week winter break. This is a period which all of us are looking forward to, the time of well-deserved rest, travel, sports activities, but also a bit of culture, reading, watching movies or visiting museums. School management and teachers of EKOLA wish all the students healthy, safe, joyous and fulfilling winter break.

See you back at school on 11th February!

TO DIFFER, BUT BEAUTIFULLY

To start the winter break with positive energy, IB2 students / EKOLA Movie Club, on 24th January, went to see the American comedy drama „Green Book” directed by Peter Farrelly and nominated for Oscar 2019 in a couple of categories. A road movie with excellent acting (Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali), inspired by true events, tells a story of social stereotypes, racial prejudice, cultural clichés but, above all, about a meeting of two people from two different worlds. Their journey across the racist South of the USA gives birth to not entirely obvious yet true friendship. Not only did the young moviegoers of EKOLA have lots of good fun or were moved emotionally, but also learned that respect and understanding of differences is a way to overcome barriers, both the ones in us and those which are to be found in every society.

CHRISTMAS MEETING

The week before Christmas is the time for meetings, talks, wrapping up the passing year... On the 19th December, preIB and IB students had their Christmas meeting as well. Not only did they prepare Christmas decorations and a table full of multinational cuisine snacks, but also a little concert of Christmas carols which they sang together. The school director, Ms Jolanta Weglowska, wished everyone merry festive season while lots of kind words, hugs, and warm gestures made all of us feel the joyful atmosphere of Christmas.

IN DRESDEN, TOGETHER

On 14th December, a jolly company of Year 3 EKOLA Middle School, preIB and IB1 students set off on their pre-Christmas trip to Dresden, "the Florence of the north". They started their sightseeing in the Old Town, visited the famous Frauenkirche, the church of Virgin Mary - one of the few buildings which survived the bombing and fire of Dresden to collapse only a few days later when the wooden furnishings went up in flames and the high temperature weakened the stone pillars of the church. Having seen the gallery of Saxon Electors, the students walked down the Brühl's Terrace on the river Elbe to the Zwinger courtyard with its Crown Gate and four Polish eagles above. There they watched Old Masters Picture Gallery and explored the Royal Cabinet of Mathematical and Physical Instruments. The trip ended with a brief but pleasant visit to the Christmas Market.

15 times 18, or the Birthday Meeting

Throughout the year 2018, IB2 students were, one by one, celebrating their eighteenth birthdays, which they also celebrated together on 13th December, at a festive meeting, all smartly dressed, enjoying a birthday cake with candles and a toast but above all, lots of beautiful birthday wishes which they had individually prepared and read out aloud for their friends. The Thursday evening - full of chatting, jokes, cordialities, funny photos - will be remembered for a long time, as a common birthday party for fifteen students certainly happened for the first time in our school history. The meeting ended at the Christmas Market with a symbolic farewell to childhood, which was the roller coaster ride into the future...
