“VII PIKNIKOŁŁEK 2016” AURAEKO – XXI Senior High School in Warsaw

All educational activities realized in the previous years under subsequent “PIKNIKOŁŁEK” projects were addressed at the upper senior high school youth of Ochota district, the Kołłątaj community and junior high school youth. Since last year the number of junior high school children and children from primary schools has significantly increased, which was especially visible in this year’s final stage of the project.
It is a very important change, extending the target group of the project, and thus enhancing is environmental impact. Junior high school youth and children from primary schools will surely take back home and to their peer environment the knowledge, the flyers and the impressions from PIKNIKOŁŁEK 2016. Therefore it can be assumed that the target group has been extended or supplemented by junior high school youth and children from Warsaw primary schools.

It must be admitted that during PIKNIKOŁŁEK 2016 that took place this year we could enjoy great weather, and if the day of the final is sunny and warm, everything looks much better. The final took place in two locations: in the senior high school gymnasium, which hosted the didactic classes and the presentation by Gabriela Leszczyńska, the President of the Board of AURAEKO, as well as the school sports field, where AURAEKO educational stand was located, as well as many sports attractions, which are much better visible in the pictures included in the gallery, so there is no need to describe them.

The collection of used equipment resulted in a significant yield of approx. 3 tons.
We should also congratulate Ph.D. Joanna Stocka, the Headmaster of the Hugon Kołłątaj XXI Senior High School, the youth from senior high school, junior high school and primary schools. It was good work, for which we would like to give our thanks.

We invite you to visit the gallery, where you can experience: youth, dynamism, the joy from the co-creation of the event and the feel of a nice September day.
