Zespol Szkol w Karczmiskach – Poland

Karczmiska is a big village in the rural area of eastern Poland. The village was founded in medieval times but our school – was introduced fifteen years ago. The school is a group of schools consisting of a kindergarten, three primary school and secondary one (this project is aimed at secondary school students). There are 80 teachers and 600 students in our school. The area we live in is rather poor – there is big unemployment and students often live in single – parents families ( because one of parents is working abroad). As the teachers we would like our students to be prepared to the challenges of 21st century – we want them to “fit into” job market , find rewarding jobs and be successful and happy then. We want them to be employable, to have neccessary competences like digital and foreign language skills.
As the students’ parents and the village itself can’t offer a lot in terms of cultural education and entertainment our school does its best to provide the pupils with the wide range of extra curriculum classes, free time activities and the wide choice of contests or sport competitions. It’s our aim to make our students tolerant, open-minded and understanding. We try to teach them foreign languages by applying many different, unconventional and modern methods. This project will also give our students great opportunities to wide their horizons and to learn more about themselves, their partners, their country, their partners’ countries. This is also an exceptional chance to travel around Europe and practise foreign languages. The students usually confined to their school and lessons can gain a possibility to make friends and be part of united Europe.
