POLAND – Zespol Szkól w Krośnie Szkola Podstawowa
The Primary School in Krosno is a state school operating in the Wielkopolska voivodeship, in the Mosina commune. It is situated in the surroundings full of national mementoes connected with the historical fate of Poland and its citizens, not far from Poznań and Gniezno, two big cities which are closely related with the beginnings of the Polish statehood. The school is also located in the neighbourhood of the Wielkopolska National Park. There are 430 students in the grades 0 to 6 who are taken care by 35 teachers. The majority of our students are of rural background. Their parents, who until recently have led their farms, are very often threatened by unemployment which may in some cases result in social exclusion. That’s why the school, which is very often the only place where they have access to the information owing to the school library and IT equipment, organizes the additional classes for all our pupils to allow them to develop their interests and passions. There is also a sports club. Our students willingly take part in various voluntary campaigns.
