Lipdub made by the Dutch pupils of the 8th grade

In the Netherlands all the pupils of grade 8 have to make the “CITO- test” in February. With the results of this test the teacher can advise the pupil and the parents for which  type of secondary  education the pupil can choose.
These are very intensive days for the pupils, but when they have finished the test they are very happy and they can relax for a moment.
Therefore they made their own “Lipdub” on Friday, February 4.  In a “Lipdub”  the pupils are miming a happy song  during a music videoclip,  shot in one take in or around the school. For the “Lipdub”  the pupils used the song “Lollypop” of Mika and it was completely invented and prepared by our pupils.   The route through the building, clothing, effects and stunts were all devised by groups of pupils. Then the lipdub was filmed (It had to be done 5 times over again.)  We are extremely proud of the result, which can be viewed on YouTube. Click on the following link:

We really hope you will enjoy the “Lipdub” of our 8th grade.


The myth of the Loch Ness Monster

The story arrived from our friend Melanie, teacher at St.Oswald's School, Glasgow Scotland. Melanie took part in Preparatory Visit in Przemyśl in January 2010.

We went to St. Columbus Church in Glasgow. At the Church, people have painted a mural of the story of St. Columbus and the monster…..

St. Columba and The Water Beastie

In the year 563 B.C. an Irish monk called Columba arrived with 12 companions on Iona, an island off the coast of Scotland.
The Picts who lived in the northern part of Britain were ferocious.
Columba and his companions set out on a dangerous journey to Inverness and Skye to talk to these people.
Once Columba and his monks had to cross the River Ness. When they reached its shore they were told of a water beast that attacked anyone who swam there. Sure enough, the beast appeared when one of his men swam across. Everyone froze in terror.
Columba made the sign of the cross and said”Do not touch the man. Go back at once.” The Beast fled under the water in terror at the sound of the Saints voice.

Unusual carnival in the Rāmuļi primary school

We had a carnival on the school hill beside Ramulu primary school . Children had to prepare a mask (in a fairytale theme) and interesting downhill slege. Our children liked to ride with the slege very much. There you could meet rabbits, dwarfs, monsters, gipsies, pirates, princess and brides. 
After this activity we went inside. And then older students had a party but 1.-4. grade students had games, singing and dance activities.
