About Us

Klasyk Primary School – Puławy is an institution existing since 2009, operating before the reform as a Non-public Gimnazjum at the Prince Adam Czartoryski Secondary School No. 1 in Puławy and continues the best educational traditions.

It was established as a result of efforts made by a group of teachers and former students of the secondary school as well as members of the Society of Gimnazjum and Liceum Graduates, who decided to establish a primary educational institution that draws on the best traditions and values of the rich history of the High School. Their guiding thought was to teach secondary school students by providing uninterrupted education in one place, building and by the same teaching staff.

For we believed that such a strategy would prepare students to work harder at developing their talents and skills.

Our primary school has been a leading institution from the very beginning and although its candidates

Although its candidates have to go through entrance exams, the enrolment lists are full every year. Currently we have 271 pupils aged 7-15 and 30 teachers. The school building is large, with 18 well-equipped classrooms, with multimedia materials and Internet access, 2 gymnasiums. We also have 2 football pitches and a multi-purpose field, as well as a dentist and doctor’s surgery.

Our boarding school is popular because of its excellent reputation, and the teachers and caretakers. The teachers and caretakers who work there, care both for the safety and proper upbringing of their pupils. The parents of our pupils show their great trust in us and support all

The parents of our pupils show their great trust in us and support all our activities by supporting the best care and teaching of our pupils.

The school has a monitoring system, an electronic diary, multifunctional smart cards and a quality management system PN-EN ISO 9001: 2009.

The general curriculum at our school is extended by some profiles from which students can choose from (general, mathematics and languages). In addition, as a second language it is possible to learn Spanish, which has proven to be a great asset and has brought a lot of interest in participating in various competitions, including a competition on the culture of Spanish-speaking countries, film culture of Spanish-speaking countries, film and art, music and dance.

Our students are active in sport, art and culture, as well as in Olympiads. Our teachers pay great attention to talented students and enable them to develop their skills in extra-curricular activities, which results in them winning awards and taking high places.

Our school has successfully finished the Comenius project “Are you CO2nsumer?”. The project ended in 2012 and it was a great experience for students and teachers as well as for the whole local community. The participants came back from the exchange with many ideas, they gained new knowledge, improved their language skills and developed their social skills. They also made new contacts with their peers from Spain and Belgium, they presented their country’s way of life to the guests and learned about the realities of life in the partner countries. It was very important for them because they were able to face problems and challenges in life, culture and language, which cannot be mastered in any other way than through direct experience.

PASOS is a non-profit organization, located in Polanco, a rural area, in the north of Spain, where the population had limited access to formal and nonformal education. They aim to improve the community they live in and to protect the environment which hosts us, as human beings. 

As an organization, PASOS wants to offer their community new educational and ludic opportunities, to improve and develop their personal and professional lives and social inclusion. 

In that purpose, they design, prepare, and implement information meetings, training courses (also for trainers and educators), workshops, concerts, events, international exchanges or mobilities and debates on current relevant topics and different areas of learners’ interest (emotional care and education, integration, personal growth, digital education and innovation, environmental education, etc). 

They base their work in 3 main cornerstones: Enhance knowledge, embrace diversity, empower people. In all their activities, the contribution of the participants has a relevant role, since listening to their proposals, wishes and ideas is one of the central working methods, which generate exchange and debate. 

PASOS main objective is to become a platform for their community (including those with disabilities or marginalized), to discover the world and all it has to offer, as well as to discover their personal interests and values. The mission of the organization is to develop and support the use of non-formal education, to boost creativity, to support environmental consciousness, to foster entrepreneurship, healthy lifestyles, democracy, and human rights, and to develop solidarity and tolerance.

PASOS invites youngsters to be involved in youth policies development or to design and start their own ventures. They also encourage them to actively participate in initiatives for the general welfare of society, in social or environmental campaigns, in human rights defense, etc.

Some of their staff are teachers and educators, who have a special interest in pedagogy and the way human beings learn. Thus, they also belong to other local groups dealing with alternative schooling (like forest, Montessori, or Waldorf Schools), which respect the person’s rhythms and interests, recognize the different intelligences and the value of both learning by doing methodologies and not judging the learning processes.

They work, coach and train youth workers, parents, teachers, social organizations and public institutions (as they act as multipliers), to develop their skills and acquire new tools (from the non-formal education) to be used with their young learners. PASOS has strong relationships and partnerships with local authorities, and educational centers, and other relevant regional, national and international NGOs”.
