Gimnazjum nr 6 - POZNAŃ
Gimnazjum nr 6 im. E. Raczynskiego is a Secondary School in Poznan, students aged 13-16. It is situated in the Wielkopolska Region, Poznan. There are about 250 students in our school and 40 professional teachers.
Taking into account our educational system our school is called „School with high standards“ as it is perceived to be the school which provides education for a very talented and gifted students as well as for those with special needs. All integrated students have their own individualized educational programmes. Our school is said to be the „green school“ taking part in the ecological projects e.g. „Clean the world“, „Stay healthy, eat fruit“ or „Be Fit“. As a school we are keen on ecological and healthy issues that is why we are the owner of a school garden next to our school building. There are regular educational garden meetings for biology students (twice a month). Our students enjoy the sun, the freshness of air and at the same time become more ecological conscious. During garden biology classes they find out: what should be done to clean up the environment, what can they do for the environment, how to prevent from the major ecological problems in Poland and in the world.
Our students regularly attend ecological lectures at the University of Adam Mickiewicz in Poznan . So far 90 students have been taking part in ecological campaign called „The Earth Day“. Being a regular and active member of mentioned lectures, give our student the awareness of such problem as: the sources of dangerous contamination of air, water and soil and the ways of preventing them successfully.
Our schools concentrates on professional language education. During the lessons and meetings with native speaker (twice a month) not only do they improve their language skills but they have an opportunity to solve ecological threats in Poland and in the world. Discussion and solving eco-cases help them to understand the issues concerning our greatest environmental problems and the consequences of pollution.
To sum up, each year our students are participating in a school project entitled „Healthy life“. After completing it, they consider themselves ecofreaks and are eager to take part in any ecological projects – they are eco-conscious, and their desire for a cleaner environment is being fulfilled ever day.
