Wyjazd Edukacyjny do Szkocji
W dniach 21–28 kwietnia 2023 uczniowie klas 1d, 2b, 2c, 2d, 2e, 2f, 2g, 3b, 3c, 3d, 3f i 4b uczestniczyli w Wyjeździe Edukacyjnym do Szkocji pod opieką nauczycieli p. Iwony Jasek, p. Katarzyny Stawowczyk, p. Krystyny Ignatowskiej oraz p. Piotra Rydarowicza. Podczas tego wyjazdu uczniowie doświadczyli pięknej szkockiej natury jak również zwiedzili niezwykle ciekawe miejsca, takie jak Mur Hadriana, Wyspę Skye i Portree, miasta Dundee, Inverness oraz Edynburg. Niezwykłą atrakcją był rejs motorówką po jeziorze Loch Ness oraz trekking na słynny Old Man of Storr. Szkocja pozostawi w nas niezapomniane wrażenia. A tak o tej przygodzie piszą uczniowie:
DAYS 1&2 (by Zofia Owczarczyk)
The first point on our list was Amsterdam with Rijsksmuseum and remarkable channels. In the Rijksmuseum we could see the works of art of many artists known worldwide, like Rembrandt or Van Gogh. What I liked the most was the amazing library, which is the biggest one in the Netherlands. Then, we went on a canal cruise with a guide who told us a little bit more about Amsterdam. [Did you know that in Amsterdam there are many more bikes than people who live there?! ] We spent our night on a ferry which was really convenient as it had a duty-free shop and a cinema.
On the second day we visited Hadrian’s Wall, which are the ruins of the border wall, built in the second century AD, to protect the lands of the Roman Empire from Scots. There we could also see a famous tree from one of the films about Robin Hood. We ended our day on the coast of Loch Lomond, which is the largest lake in Scotland and, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful places in this country.

On Monday, while we were going to our next point of interest, we stopped at a viewpoint to see the beautiful Glencoe Valley. Some time later we had a chance to see one of the spots where Harry Potter had been filmed – it is the bridge he crosses by train while going to Hogwarts. After that, we reached the Isle of Skye by ferry.
On Tuesday morning we climbed the Old Man of Storr, which is a rocky hill on the island. After admiring the breathtaking views from the spot, we went by bus in the direction of Loch Ness. On the lake we sailed a fast boat and we got to know some interesting facts about the place.
DAY 5 (by Kacper Wilk)
We started the fifth day with a visit to a whiskey distillery, where we learned the whole history, production process and traditions related to the production of this inseparable element of Scottish culture. Then we went to St. Andrews, which is a beautiful, historic and 100% Scottish city. Golf fields by the sea and old stone buildings at every step made for an unusual atmosphere. We also had the opportunity to enter the university, the old local cemetery and feel like from a completely different era, if only for a moment. We liked this city so much that we named it ‘The City of Dreams’. On the way to Edinburgh we stopped to look at a beautiful railway bridge, which is included in the UNESCO list. We ended the day in the capital city of Scotland, having dinner at a local restaurant that served traditional Indian dishes.
DAY 6 (by Franciszek Faron)
We left the hotel in the morning to explore Edinburgh by ourselves. My friends and I went to the Ocean Terminal shopping centre, the biggest one in Scotland. Then we met our tour guide, who was an indigenous Scotsman. He showed us many places in Edinburgh, like the Royal Mile or the Edinburgh Castle. He also told us a lot of stories about these places. Towards the end of the day it was time for us to say goodbye to Scotland and go back to Poland.
