Our school in Megalopoli



Προβολή μεγαλύτερου χάρτη

This is our schoolyard and in the middle our newly planted tree!...

Our school in Megalopoli, was founded in 1926, but an earthquake in 1965 destroyed it, so the building you see in the photos was made in the early 70's. It now has 13 classrooms, with 317 pupils from 12 to 15 years of age. Megalopoli, is an industrial city, which was founded because of the presence of lignite in the subsoil of the area. Four electrical power units contribute to Greece's power supply. Among other important things, is the ancient Theater which according to archaeologists, was the biggest in Greece, with a capacity of 17.000-21.000 people. The town of Megalopoli is surrounded by forests with the biggest being Mountain Mainalo, our topic for our project.

ZSO Nr 1 STO - Warsaw - Poland

Zespół Szkół Ogólnokształcących Nr 1
Społecznego Towarzystwa Oświatowego









Our school was founded in June 1989 on the initiative of the parents living in Ursynów district and it was one of the very first such schools in Poland. The development of our school shows how much it is needed here. We still rent the buildings but at the very beginning, we only had one classroom for 16 students. At the moment there are 20 classes with 310 students: 13 classes at our primary school and 7 at our 3-year secondary school.



The school is run by Samodzielne Koło Terenowe Nr 21 Społecznego Towarzystwa Oświatowego - STO (the Local Board of the Civic Educational Association number 21) and is one of the biggest.

The members of the Association are: the parents of our present and former students, our teachers and our former students. The Civic Educational Association is an all-Poland association, for all those who are concerned about the condition of the Polish educational system and those who are interested in creating new, alternative, educational forms. The STO schools educate in a creative way, encourage the students to broaden their minds and develop their personalities.

Our school is named after Jan Nowak Jeziorański (1913 - 2004). He was a great Polish patriot living abroad, one of the founders of Radio Free Europe. He spoke on behalf of the Poles and other nations submitted to the Soviet Union who could not freely express their own opinions.










Welcome to our school!
At the moment it has autumnal decorations made by pupils




Warm greetings from Warsaw

A little autumn song from Galicia (Spain).IES TELLEIRAS



A greetings to all and the wishes of a good trip with this song of autumn from Galicia.
A castaña no ourizo
quixo reír e estralou,
caíu do castaño embaixo
mira que tumbo levou.

(The chesnut in his burrs
wanted to laugh and burst,
fell of the chesnut tree
Look that hit she carried)
