The European Competition - 14th May 2003
In order to prepare the younger part of our society to the future life in the European Union a competition was organised to check the level of so-called European awareness. It took place on 14th May in the Gymnasium no.3 in Żory. All Żory's gymnasiums, including the Gymnasium for Adults, participated in it. Our school was represented by three students: Małgorzata Mos, Przemysław Witek and Aleksandra Socha and their teacher, Mr Andrzej Kasza.
The contest was divided into two parts - a written and an oral one. The written part checked the knowledge about history of the European Union, whereas the oral required not only observance but also a great capability of associating the facts. Between the tasks there were numerous art performances, such as European fashion show, the national dances of the EU countries or the EU anthem. The rivalry was extremely equal, even though the questions were often difficult and tricky. Finally, the winner was Gymnasium no.3 with the total score of 82 points. Our gymnasium, having only one point less, was awarded the second prize.
In the end our president, Mr Waldemar Socha, in his speech mentioned important words: "We are for Europe and Europe is for us."
