This week there were exams in Polish schools. We wish for our friends good luck in their promotion !
All polish pupils have to take two exams in April, which check pupils’ knowledge and skills from many subjects. First day includes skills from such subjects as: polish language, history, knowledge of society, art and music. Second day includes skills from such subjects as: maths, biology, geography, chemistry, physics and astronomy.

This exam can not be repeated. If a pupil writes poorly, but he has got good marks on his school report – he’ll get promotion to next education stage. This exam is obligatory – every pupil have to pass it. Further education isn’t possible without taking this exam. Pupils get points for every task. The more points they get, the better chance they have to get to a new school.

Worldwide, some 776 million adults lack literacy skills, 75 million children are out of school and millions more leave school early without acquiring basic literacy and numeracy skills. Literacy is a basic right and a fundamental condition for being part of today’s knowledge societies. Literacy is a key to reduce poverty, increase economic opportunities, improve child and maternal health, prevent HIV and AIDS and encourage political participation.

Under the slogan ‘Open Books, Open Doors’, Global Action Week, led by the Global Campaign for Education, will send a strong signal to policy-makers and the international community on the importance of one of the most neglected Education for All goals. More political commitment, more effective literacy programs and more funding are required to make literacy a basic right for all.

The highlight of the campaign is the “Big Book”, a collection of short stories about how education changes lives. “Big Read” events will be organized, during which individuals will read from this book and sign a statement at the back of it calling for more commitment and investments to ensure that everyone is able to read and write.

1. Define Catholic religion in three words.
2. How do you celebrate Easter in Poland?
3. What does Easter mean to you?




1. The resurrection of Jesus.
2. In Poland, Easter begins on Holy Thursday and ends on Easter Monday. Families are very happy.
3. Easter means for me the joy of new life and salvation.



1. Faith, hope and love.
2. Easter is the oldest Christian holiday, which commemorates rising from the death of Jesus Christ.

3. Easter for me means that our Savior loves me so much, that He gives his life away for my salvation.


Wielkanoc w Polsce/Easter in Poland

Easter is the oldest Christian holyday, witch commemorates rising from the death of Jesus Christ. Before Easter we have Ash Wednesday in Poland, which is the first day of the Lent. The Lent lasts for 40 days. Then we have Palm Sunday and The Great Week with the three most important days: Great Thursday, Great Friday and Great Saturday. Great Thursday is a day of Last Jesus Christ’s Supper and twelve Apostles. Great Friday is a day of Jesus Christ’s death on the cross. On this day we have no Holy Mass, but only the Way of the Cross. It’s the day of the biggest grief after Christ’s death. On Great Saturday we adore the Blessed Sacrament, which is on the Master’s Grave and we consecrate food for the festive table. On this day we have no Holy Mass too. After that we have Resurrection’s Sunday. It is the first day of Easter, when we celebrate the return to life of our Savior.
The last day of Easter is Easter Monday, when boys and girls pour water over themselves. When a girl is wet this day, it means that she has success in contacts with boys.

1. My favourite book is “Small Prince” by S. E. I like this book because it makes me think. Human features hide under the characters of fairy tales for children.


2. The person whom I admire is John Paul II. As for me and the majority of Poles John Paul II gained an authority over people. Karol Wojtyła as John Paul II has showed the power of love and told us that everything could be forgiven.


3. Honesty is the most important thing in my opinion. It’s important to be honest in relation to other people nad to telll the truth all the time.

It is a school e-newspaper with interviews (and photos) about young people and their life. Pupils will write about everything, but in a peculiar way – by interviewing school friends from different foreign countries. They will ask about school life, system of grading at school, hobbies, music, problems of young people, favourite books, favourite sports, festive traditions, how they spend their free time and other things they want to find out.
