Year 12 and Pre IB take part in a Warsaw City Challenge

On Friday September 14th, the Year 12 and Pre IB students had a chance to experience some great adventures traveling around Warsaw. In the groups of four - seven the students tried to find out more not only about the city but also about each other. Thanks to this trip they talked to people who they usually wouldn’t talk to and went to places they might never have been to before.

Secondary Students in the Old Town

As a group students were given 25 interesting tasks that required cooperation and commitment from all of them. While fulfilling these 'missions' they also had to visit three stations over the course of the day in which individual teachers waited to check their progress. These points were located in Lazienki Park, the Old Town and the City Centre near Marszalkowska. Although the tasks were not too complicated, the 4 hours given to the students and the length of the city they had to travel made this event a real challenge.  

However, the students were up to the task and overall enjoyed the whole experience. Here are some of their comments from the course of the day:

“We all enjoyed the trip, although we were tired and under pressure because of the time, but we managed to find new things out about each other. I got to know some new students that I didn’t have a chance to speak to in class yet and through some of the fun and ridiculous tasks, needing us to take a creative interpretation of them, we really got to know each other well. Overall, we laughed a lot and had fun!”Hubert Y. 12

“Our group unfortunately fell apart as soon as well left the school, however the few of us left formed a solid team and developed our strategy to complete as many tasks as possible. We managed to buy pierogi’s, create our own uniform, feed a squirrel, make TBS with our bodies, drink bubble tea (a first for some of us) and I manage to plank in front of The Palace of Culture, which drew a lot of attention from passing people. Overall, a great day!”Kostantyn Y.12

“Travelling in groups of 5-7 people gave us the opportunity to get to know people in our year we might not have known as well before. For example, we learnt who's most likely to get stuck between closing bus doors (Lennox) or how many strange glances we can attract by posing with a pack of pierogi in Carrefour. We even learnt how to sunbathe in the park when it's raining.” Kaat Y.12

“Although we did not have enough time in the end, the whole trip was very successful, we were all really integrated and had a great time completing all of these missions. This day was definitely one of the experiences that we will never forget and was a pleasant change from an everyday school life.” Mai Y. 12

Overall, a great day was had by all and concluded with pizza’s and drinks in the IB Learning Centre laughing and sharing the adventures the students have had over the course of the day. I am really pleased that the students enjoyed the day, and I hope some new friendships were formed that will endure into their future. Below is a selection of photos with the student interpretation of some of the events that they had to complete.
