,, Być narodowi użytecznym’’
A primary school number 1 named Stanisława Staszica in Chodzież from Wielkopolska Region in Poland is looking for partner schools from Spain and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to start up a cultural and linguistic exchange.
The school was set up in 1903. Our aim is to gain experience thanks to comprehensive exchange. We provide our pupils with a lot of methods of work, further, we develop new strategies of acquisition of knowledge. Our staff works really hard to enhance the conditions of getting across knowledge and we provide our pupils with a good level of schooling. We are modifying the school all the time to shape an appropriate area of education, moreover, our pupils gain a great number of positive feedback on their knowledge. What is more, we have also strengthen education in the school by creating sport classes, it means that children can practise football, swimming, finswimming, volleyball, basketball, dance and gymnastics. It goes without saying that they gain good results in sport. Our school cooperates with a local football club which is called Polonia Chodzież. Thanks to this we can create sport classes in our school, further, we can train pupils and teach them how to play football professionally. Moreover, we attach significant weight to this issue in order to achieve good results and train qualified and committed footballers. We also invest in innovation and strive for improving our sport classes so our school footballers attend football trainings regularly. Interesting is the fact that, Polonia Chodzież cooperates with Extraclass Club KKS Lech Poznań and thanks to this cooperation, our pupils have the possibilities of taking part in different extraclass club’s matches in Poland. It should be taken into account that there are breathtaking and unforgettable experiences for them. It is nice to communicate that our determinate and conscientious school footballers have good results in numerous football matches. It would be nice to instigate a cooperation with a school to reinforce and inspire pupil’s motivation to play football and expand their talent, as well. Besides, we have also swimming classes which are trained by one of the best swimming and finswimming trainer in Poland. The school cooperates with UKS Delfinek Chodzież which is a quite young club and its aim is to educate finswimmers and swimmers. What is more, finswimming is a very exciting and spectacular type of sport and our pupils desire swimming in a monofin or in two fins. We are a thriving swimming club because we have more than 100 members and seven groups: 2 finswimming teams, 4 groups which concentrate on improving swimming techniques and 1 MASTERS Team. We are proud of being the best finswimming club in Poland, further, we have also a lot of international success, such as: two members of the team – Julia Małachowska and Kinga Małachowska won two brown medals in European Swimming Championships in swimming in fins in 2015 which took place in Belgrade (Serbia) or we won the second place in Finswimming World Cup 2015 in Olsztyn (Poland). Another example of advanced sport’s activities in Chodzież is the fact that it can practise sailing and speedboat trips. Further, Chodzież is situated 7 kilometers from the modern water ski lift in Margonin and each year a lot of people practise water skiing. There are experienced and qualified trainers there. Undoubtedly, the European Water Skii Champion 2015 is a girl who lives in our region. If you are interested, you can follow us on the Internet http://www.delfinekchodziez.pl/.
