Awards ceremony in the final of the Ancient Times Competition in group IV
On the 28th of April 2012, group IV has had a special celebration to present the final of our Ancient Times Competition. The competition marked the end of our work connected to the ancient times, which are referred to as those before the birth of Christ (B.C.). Just before the Easter break we stood face to face with a huge challenge as the test was very difficult and on top of that consisted of over fifty questions. Just the format of the test was a completely new type of encounter for us and this is why we are all very proud of ourselves for tackling it in style. In spite of the difficulty of the task, we have all faced it without fear and shown that we possess significant knowledge about the ancient era. We know that information we have learned will be useful for us in the future. The winners of the first, second and third place have received book awards – the books are of course about the ancient times, and we are all certain will be a thrilling read for the winners. Books were won by Michał Ożarek, Andrzej Mamczura and Wiktoria Betka. Books and diplomas were awarded by the Chair of the School Board – Mrs Katarzyna Meinicke. After the awards ceremony, all its participants have reluctantly posed for a group picture.
