Liceum Ogólnoksztalcące im. P.Skargi in Grójec is an upper secondary school preparing students, aged 15 to 18, for university education. The school is playing a coordinating role in the project. The school is one of the oldest ones in the district of Grojec and in the whole Mazowieckie Province. It was founded in 1912. There are 50 teachers and about 650 students in the school. The secondary school students come from different social backgrounds. There are a few organizations existing at school, e.g. Red Cross, Volunteers' Club, Film Discussion Club or Students' Sport Club. However, the students still need additional, multicultural activities so that they could be more actively involved in the school life and cooperate more willingly, understanding the importance of both their cultural roots and respect for different social and cultural backgrounds. The school is situated in a small town (about 15 thousand inhabitants), which makes it easier to be in touch with students' parents in order to solve problems immediately. The students feel the need of, and have deep interest in, learning about other cultures and making friends with students from abroad. The multicultural project that the school has already participated in showed how important and how beneficial to students, teachers, parents and local community it is to cooperate with European partners in order to overcome stereotypes, learn a foreign language and gain self-confidence. Thanks to this new project they will have a chance to establish long-lasting relationships with peers from European countries. As a result, they will become more open and tolerant towards social differences and ethnic minorities. The project will certainly give all the students opportunities to be better understanding and fully aware of what it means to be part of the European community.
