The last time when the year number was a repetition of a double-digit number happened in 1919, at the end of WW1 and the time of Poland regaining its independence. I wonder how things will look in the world in 101 years from now in 2121?
We have started this new year at The British School Warsaw with lots of various extracurricular activities, Primary school skiers coming back from Austria this week whilst Key Stage 3 skiers getting ready to explore the Swiss slopes at Les Martinets. Our extracurricular programme that keeps getting stronger each year is not only focusing on sport trips but it also an enhancement of the richness of our curriculum and an extension of our teaching and learning practices. Year 4 trip to Krakow starting tomorrow is just one of many examples of how we support our educational programme outside the school.
Next Friday evening our Year 13 class will be celebrating 100 days separating them their May Exams, a traditional Polish event called “Studniowka” when the highlight of such evening will be our students dancing Polonaise.
TBS Warsaw has always been a strong school community that in addition to providing everything for the students, also has provided social opportunities for our parents. So if you have time next Saturday evening (25th January), please join us for the traditional Scottish Burns Night Supper where in addition to enjoying the tastes of Haggis and Single Malt whisky, you will also have an opportunity to see other examples of Scottish tradition in action. I am being told that tickets are still available so we hope to see you there.
And finally as the Quiz Master, I would like to cordially invite you to our 12th TBS Quiz Night that will take place on Friday 13th March. I am aware that there is still lots of time left but please reserve the time, reserve the seat and start refreshing your knowledge of music, arts, geography and film as they might be helpful during this enjoyable event.
