All Saints Day

Hi Everybody!!
Let us tell you something about All Saints Day. It’s our traditional holiday which is celebrated on the 1st November. On this day we don’t go to school but we go to cemeteries instead. We pray, light candles and bring flowers on tombstones. It a day when we commemorate people who are no longer with us.
On the 1st November everyone has a day off from work, so it is a great chance to meet with relatives and friends. Each family celebrates it differently, however, in most of the cases, first, we go to the cemeteries and then we meet at the dinner table.
Here are some photos of the Polish graveyards during All Saints Day.

Hi everybody!

It is time to finally introduce ourselves.
We are from the school number 65 in PoznaƄ. Last year we moved to a totally new building, so now we are learning in better conditions. Our school is really big, there are about 750 students. Each classroom is equipped with an interactive board. Moreover, in a language department, we have got special headphones for every pupil to improve our pronunciation skills. Our school has got a very big sport hall, where we take part in and win a lot of tournaments, especially in volleyball and football.
We organize a lot of different competitions among students and classes. Sometimes our teachers take part in them. We also take part in different projects, but this year Comenius is our favorite.
Our teachers are friendly and open to our, sometimes crazy ideas, but we get along with each other.
So that’s for now. We hope that, this blog will be a great chance to get to know each other better. We are waiting for you.
