On the 227th anniversary of the adoption of the 3rd May Constitution, Class 1a students with their Form Teacher Mr. Marek Ziółkowski, and the representatives of the Students Council along with the emblem bearers, took part in the city celebrations of this day. The ceremony began with singing the Dąbrowski's Mazurka and the speech given by the City President, Mr. Marcin Witko. Then, the city choir sang a few songs related to the theme of the 3rd of May. After putting wreaths at the monument of Tadeusz Kościuszko and the final parade, everyone went home. It is worth celebrating the 3rd Day of May, because the Basic Law adopted on that day in the year 1791, the first such a law in the history of Europe and the second in the history of the world, defined the general system of the rule of law.
The Flag Day of the Republic of Poland was introduced under the Act of 20th February 2004. High School No. 1 represented by the students of Class 1b together with the School Principal Mrs. Ewa Męcina and the Form Teacher Mrs. Małgorzata Darczyńska participated in this patriotic celebration.
On 27th April, we said goodbye to the Year 3 students of our School. All students and teachers gathered in a beautifully decorated gym.
The ceremony began with the introduction of the Emblem by the bearers, singing the national anthem and passing the School Emblem to the younger classes. Next, the Principal Mrs. Ewa Męcina took the floor and made us aware of the importance of this event. She also welcomed the invited guests: school community, parents, and the Head of the Education Department - Mrs. Beata Stańczyk.
In her speech, she also praised the good results of the graduates, their talents, not only those concerning education, but also sport, music, art, IT and entrepreneurial skills. She addressed them with wonderful words: “Your successes are our successes”. She also thanked the teachers who helped the young people in their pursuit of such great achievements. The following part of this solemn event was the reading of the lists of this year graduates by Vice-Principal Mrs. Anna Dudek. Special praise should be given to the students of Class IIIe for the best school average grade of all Year 3 Classes, i.e.: 4.3. By a decision of the Teaching Staff Meeting, 2 students received the titles of the Best Graduates of High School No. 1 and were given statuettes, flowers, and their parents congratulatory letters. Also, Mrs. Beata Stańczyk thanked the third classes and addressed them with beautiful wishes. The members of the School Students Council handed out prizes to our talented high school graduates, and also awarded the title of the Personality of the Year of High School No. 1. Then , the representatives of the Parents Council gave their speeches as did Mr. Antoni Smolarek who conducted blood donation campaigns in our school and handed out prizes.
The artistic part was held in the form of a prize giving gala, during which the high school graduates were nominated for many categories, e.g. “the best school couple”, “the best-dressed girl at the prom”, “the best party-goer”, “the best-washed car”, “the most noticeable person in school”, “the hardest working student”. The “Gold Ones” were distributed by the teachers who posed for photos with the students. During breaks we had the opportunity to admire wonderful dance routines. At the end there were singing performances, such as: Zbigniew Wodecki’s song “I like to go back where I belonged to” and shanties.
The graduates prepared a surprise by singing and dancing together.
We wish all the high school graduates the greatest successes and traditionally “BREAK A LEG”!
On 25th April 2018, Classes 2C, 2D and 2E went on a trip to Łódź to take part in the “Academic Łódź” Project. The organization was very good. The trip began with lectures at the Lodz University of Technology. The would-be students learned a lot about the city and the university. There was also a QUIZ evoking a lot of laughter, during which our students were awarded. After all the talks were completed, we went to the University of Lodz. Class 2E had a lecture entitled: "Does maximum profit mean minimum costs? An enterprise on the competitive market." We learned, among others how companies operate in Poland and how they can be divided. Class 2D had a lecture entitled: "Serial Killers". It was about the most famous killers of the world and their types. Class 2C was the only one who went to the Medical University, where the students attended a lecture on "Forensic Medicine", in which they learned how to do a study in the crime scene and how to conduct the autopsy. This is not the first trip completed with the students' satisfaction. Some of them even think about studying in Lodz.
On 23rd April, our School held an Open Day events. It was visited by numerous groups of junior high school students from Tomaszów Mazowiecki and the surrounding area. They were warmly welcomed with beautiful singing, playing the guitar, and nice words of our students. The candidates for the school year 2018/2019 learned from the Principal about the rules of logging in to individual classes. There were experiments conducted by particular Classes. The members of the Maritime and River League and our school mini-company also presented their outcomes. Our students performed their dance show in the sweatshirts – the mini-company products. Our “athletes” also spoke, and explained that combining studying and passion is fully possible, advisable and gives great results in High School No. 1. There were also quizes and demonstration of first aid - cardiopulmonary resuscitation. People in the audience answered questions about our School and won prizes. The meeting ended with a funny performance prepared by the first-graders. Junior high school students were taken for a walk around the School by designated class members.
