Poland ,officially the Republic of Poland, is a country in Central Europe, bordered by Germany, the Czech Republic , Slovakia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) and Lithuania. It has a population of over 38.5 million people. The prevailing landscape in Poland is lowland. Uplands and highlands are located in the more mountainous south. Poland's highest peak, Rysy in the Tatra Mountains, is nearly 2,500m high. The Vistula, Odra, Warta and Bug are Poland's main rivers. In the north we border with the Baltic Sea. There are over 9,300 lakes in Poland.


A Polish state was established in 966, when Poland’s ruler Mieszko I converted the country to Christianity. In XIIth century Teutonic Knights came to Poland under the pretext of converting the population but in 1410 they were defeated at a very important battle of Grunwald by Polish king Wladyslaw Jagiello. In 1795 the Polish country was partitioned by three more powerful neighbours and it disappeared from the maps for 123 years. Poland regained its independence in 1918. Poland suffered the vast destruction during World War II and more than six million Polish citizens died in the war. During the Revolutions of 1989, Poland's communist government was overthrown and Poland adopted a new constitution establishing itself as a democracy and renaming itself the "Third Polish Republic".

Charity Event - collecting bottle lids

There are many charity events taking place in Liceum Ogolnoksztalcace im. P.Skargi in Grojec. One of them  is collecting plastic bottle lids. One can ask why bottle lids, what for? The answer is simple: they are made of recycling material which can be reused and the collected money can be spent on a good cause.

The two girls: Paulina Pluzinska and Malgorzata Sobczak, students of our school, had this wonderful idea to start collecting lids and spread the news among their friends. The idea took off immediately, with more and more people and institutions willing to join this charity action. The students of our school have been bringing  plastic bottle lids to the school building since February 2013 for the sole purpose of helping a disabled boy named Oliwier, Paulina’s nephew. During the Comenius visit in Poland the lids were put together and packed into large bags. The lids were then transported to the recycling plant and the earned money is going to be spent on a new prosthesis for the five-year-old boy (a new one is bought at least twice a year).

Oliwier’s parents’ initiative and strong will have helped Paulina to be even more motivated to encourage others to give a hand. The news spread quickly, even to overseas countries, and now many individuals, institutions and schools are contributing to making Oliwier a happy child.

The fact that Oliwier’s mother is a graduate of L.O. in Grojec, and that Paulina is currently studying in our school, makes all the school community to willingly take part in the event. We are still collecting the lids and encouraging others to do the same. Why don’t you join us? How about organizing such an event in your school? Not only will you contribute to protecting the environment but also, most importantly, help the young boy make his dreams come true. The more of us open our hearts, the more people will be happy.
