On 10th of April 2017 a group of 4 students from class 3a (Simon, Emil, Patricia and Peter) took part in a theatre play competition in Gimnazjum 11 that was a second part of the contest named – “Famous faces and their places”. Here is what Simon Gumiela (member or the group) says about the whole thing:
I’ve got to say that we all came through a long way of preparations, including passing the first part of the competition that required making digital presentation about two Poles , one from nowadays and the other from the past who put a lot of effort into promoting Poland abroad. Together with friends I decided to describe Robert Lewandowski and Andrzej Wajda. And the first one, was the main character of the short play prepared for the second part of the competition.
At the beginning there were some casual small talks. Afterwards, all groups had to draw the number in the queue, our team was 8th. After seeing others schools theatre plays we quickly realized that the scenario created by them was way different from ours. Instead of focusing on the history of a character we wanted to show some part of his life, and we did it in a funny way. The scene was all about Robert Lewandowski (Polish footballer) arguing with his wife, unexpectedly neither about the lack of time connected with his uncommon work nor anything like that, but about him disobeying rules of the diet plan that was created by Anna – his beloved wife.
Believe me or not but the jury was laughing all the play long, that’s probably because during other plays it wasn’t easy to stay awake, according to many, majority of scenes were simply dull. Ours turned out to be hilarious.
In the end, after hours of waiting jury announced who was the winner. Unfortunately that wasn’t us, but we managed to came in honorable third place.
Even though we didn’t win and our dreams of going on a trip to European Parliament are ruined, we don’t feel ashamed. We all consider that competition as a great opportunity to learn and improve ourselves mainly in the skill of speaking a foreign language in public. Moreover, we had a great fun during the preparations and that’s the most important after all.
