   PIERWSZY DZIEŃ WIOSNY


     On March 21st, we welcomed the first day of Spring. The students were very excited while preparing marzanna effigies. Our school decided that this year's effigies were to be made of environmentally friendly products. Every child brought something to decorate the effigy which was made to "say goodbye" to harsh and long Winter and welcome the oncoming Spring. In that way our hall got new, very special inhabitants, who welcome us every day and remind us that summer break is coming.
     Aren't our marzanna effigies lonely and sad? No, they aren't. The students surrounded them with lots of colourful paper flowers, butterflies and trees full of buds.
     Now you can feel the Spring in our school in spite of bad weather
