Who we are now?

We survived Ima3cooly .

We really managed it and now we are the rightful students of this school.

But OUR way has just begun…

I´m looking at the corridor of this school and I´m lost (3 months and I still  don´t know where I am ). There are so many ways , not just in this school but also in my life.

Where should we go next? I am looking at the people ( not children but some of the to-be- adult human beings) that I know nothing about. But still we have one thing in common. It is – this school.

I am new here. I know nothing abot this life. Life as a student of Gymnázium Školská.

Today it seems great.

But what will tomorrow bring us?

We have to discover it on our own.

Everybody had experienced it once. Not only students but also teachers. Maybe not at this school but everyone was ´the new, the youngest one somewhere . And everybody was standing in a school corridor,  looking at the door.

There is everything waiting for us. So many doors that are locked up in this corridor, waiting for us to open them. So many opportunities.  You know, the best of all (and the hardest at the same time) is to pick up the key, step out of the comfortable zone and open the door. :-)

We have been here for 3 months. We came and met our teachers, new school, new system … And we have the whole 4 years to understand it. To get to know each other.

So wish us good luck!

SPACE WALK

(source: https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTagdAPYbK1BcNzdGUMcng3XxNpRHh0rWohWP1PypzR6qO-__B1IQ

Hi everybody,

My passion is space and things like that. So I would like to catch your attention to what you can see on the night sky since  October 21st, till the end of the year 2018.

Every month you can see at least one meteor shower :

21st Oct – 22nd Oct  Orionids meteor shower,

17th Nov – 18th Nov  Leonids meteor shower,

13th Dec – 14the Dec Geminids meteor shower

and a few days before Christmas 21st Dec – 22nd Dec  Urzids meteor shower.

However, for the real show you will have to wait till Christmas. After 5 years a comet 46P/Wirtanem-Christmas will come ´close´ to our planet. The Comet will reach its greatest brightness in the half of December. Also if you go on the midnight church mass, you’ll be able to see comet right above your head.

ART and ME

by Andrea Kanóczová, 3.A

 

My favourite kind of art has always been drawing.

I enjoy almost everything about it. The colour, the smell, the sound of the top of the pencil sliding on the surface of paper… I don´t practice this hobby very often, but when I do it always makes me feel relaxed and happy.

I was introduced to drawing when I was very young. My grandmother found me decorating my crib with my cousin´s crayons and it inspired her to buy me a set of colourful pencils. Since then my mom would often draw silhouettes of things I liked for me to colour them.

As I was growing older I started attending dance classes, but this was not my cup of coffee. I soon realised that what I like about dancing is not the dance itsself, however, the way it looks from the perspective of the viewer.

I never tried to play any musical instruments, bacause I was unable to decide which one´s sound I like the most. Nevertheless, I listen to music daily. I have no favourite genre. I like everything that sounds good to me or has an interesting message. One day I would also like to see a musical or an opera. The only reason I haven´t done it so yet is that I hugely dislike wearing formal clothes which are expected to be worn  on such occassons.

To summarize, I can say that I do like art. I have always beeen an admirer of skilled people who work hard and put their hearts into the creation of something beautiful. No matter if they are musicians, filmmakers, poets or painters.

Erasmus+ – trip to Finland /part 1/

by Karolína Gavroňová, 1.C

I with my schoolmates Matúš Prachnár, Ema Gromovská, Annamária Salanciová and Monika Klučárová visited Finland from 7th to 13th February, 2016. We had to do some tasks before we were chosen if we wanted to go to Finland. I am so happy that we were the ones who went there. That experience was really valuable for me and I am sure it was like that for the others. Here is a short description of the trip. Trust me, it is really short. We did there so many interesting things that it was almost impossible to write it shortly in this little article. I did my best.

Sunday 

The day when we flew to Finland. The flight went good and we landed in Helsinki, where we waited for people from other countries. Then we went to Moisio school in Salo. We met there our host families. I was really nervous of meeting my host family. “What if they won‘t like me?” But since the first time I spoke with them, I knew that there was nothing to worry about. They are really nice people and I am glad that I met them.

In the school we ate some Finnish food with strange names. But the food was very tasty and I was stuffed. But there were also some terrible black candies. After dinner we went home.

Monday

On Monday morning we went to Moisio school in Salo, where countries introduced themselves and their schools. Then we played some games and we made nametags. Pupils from Moisio showed us their school. We had lunch there.

After lunch we went to Stessi. It is a building for young people, where they can go in their free time. We played table tennis and some funny games there. I was a little bit shy and I didn‘t do more things, what I regret now. But still I had lots of fun.

We went to an art museum, where were controversial photos. I liked it a lot. There were interesting photos showing authors´ view of the world.

Tuesday

On Tuesday morning we were in Perniö. Pupils showed us their school and some lessons. We saw even a church, which is next to the school. Then every country did a presentation about their schools.

After the lunch in Perniö we went to the gym. We did there some exercises, at first it was boxing. When we were done with this, my arms were like jelly. Then we played a game called wallball, then was floorball and urban war.

My host took me to Narikka. It is similar as Steissi, but smaller. We played there billiard, some console games and we baked buns. When the buns were ready, we took them with us, because we had to go home. They were traditional Finnish buns and we made them tasty.

Wednesday

We met in Moisio in Salo. Then we went to ice-skating hall. I can ice-skate a little bit and I really enjoyed it, because it had been few years ago since I did it.

After one hour of ice-skating we went to Turku. We got off the bus by a church. From this place we could go wherever we wanted, so we went to a restaurant to get some food. I was very hungry. We stayed there a long time and we talked quite a lot. It was a big group of us and we couldn‘t decide where we wanted to go. So we just walked through the city and I took lots of funny photos of my friends.

The next point of program was a Finnish ice-hockey match. I like ice-hockey so I enjoyed it, but there were some people from other countries, who had never seen an ice hockey match. So it was a new experience for them. I think they enjoyed it.

Erasmus+ – trip to Finland /part 2/

by Karolína Gavroňová, 1.C

Thursday

It was the day in Helsinki. We went to a Sibelius monument at first. It was raining. Then we rode in Helsinki in the bus because of the weather. I saw a lot of pretty buildings though.

We had a little bit of free time so we ate some food. Who wouldn´t like to eat?

Then we went to Megazone. It is a game, where you must shot other teams with laser guns and destroy their base. After a minute pass when you are shot, you can continue in the play. I liked it, even when I was killed few times. Funny moments were when you suddenly noticed you were shot and you didn´t know who or when had done it.

After the game we had some free time, so we went to an art museum. There were the most beautiful toilets I have ever seen. It has its own author. And before the museum we had been in a church, what didn‘t look like a church at all. It looked like a heap of rocks. But inside it was really interesting and pretty church.

   

Friday

On Friday we experienced a common day of our hosts. Two of all lessons were art. I can draw a little bit. When teacher saw my drawings, she began to like me, she gave me some books where I could take a look and asked me to draw something. I left the drawing there. When I was leaving, she smiled at me and she was really nice.

Nea took me to kebab restaurant after school. I mention it because I ate there kebab pizza. The pizza was simply delicious.

Friday was our last day in Finland, that´s why we had a disco in the evening. The disco was fine, but I think we didn´t know each other well enough to fully relax.

Saturday

I wasn´t happy when I got up, because it was the day when we were leaving. I had packed my stuffs the day before and this morning we just woke up, said goodbye to our host families and went to the bus. The bus took us to Helsinki airport. There we all said goodbye to each other and flew home.

This trip was something, what happens once in a lifetime. It was a great experience. It took just one week and it was the shortest week of my life. But I got better in English language (in minibus on the way from Budapest my friend woke me up and said in Slovak language: “You should call your parents, we are almost home.” I answered in English: “…yeah, I should call them…”). I met lot of new people. I have made international friends. And I have lots of unique memories.

These were pros, but there are also some sad things. For example, I think I won´t ever see most of the people who I had met there. But there are absolutely more good things than the sad ones.

And what is my advice for you? If you see an opportunity like this, catch it and hold as strong as you can and do for it as much as you can. There is some work behind things like this, but it small price. Anyway, the work itself will give you some useful experiences. This way you can´t lose, you can just get.
