Easter at school!

Our last lesson of English before Easter we were in our library. We were talking about differences between Easter in England and in the Czech republic. We have learned some Easter vocabulary, like a bunny, an egg or a twig. We also helped the bunny to find some eggs! At the end of the lesson we checked our new vocabulary by „Hot Potatoes“ – a special programme for learning English. It was great!

English language competition

On the 22nd February I represented our school in an English competition of Prague 6. It had 2 parts: a test (listening and grammar) and a conversation. The most interesting for me was the second part because I prefer to speak English. Our questions were not very difficult and I chose a good topic - „My friends“. Because I have a lot of them, it wasn´t a problem to talk about my good friends. I was on the third place.

February 2008 - skiing month in our school

Every winter all the 7th classes spend one week in the mountains where they improve their skiing skills. This year our class 7.A went on a trip to Krkonoše first. We left on Saturday 2nd February. We went by bus to a small village Strážné where we stayed for 1 week in a small mountain cottage. There was lots of snow at the beginning, skiing was perfect and we also had time for cross-country skiing. It was fun!! On the rainy day we played a table tennis
tournament. Every evening we played many indoor games organized by our leaders. At the end of the trip we had skiing races. Every other evening there was a disco!:-)The week was wonderful, with lots of fun, everybody enjoyed it!! Thank you for everything and see you in the mountains again!
7.A skiers

Our class went on a skiing trip the 2nd week in February. We stayed in a small cottage in Herlíkovice. Our cottage wasn´t very nice, food and the cooks were terrible, but we enjoyed the trip anyway. We went skiing nearly every day. The 4th day we went on an all-day cross-country skiing trip on Žalý. It was fun. The weather was great! Boys in our class were real gentlemen and helped the girls with cross-country skis. On the trip we made friends with most of the people in our class. In the evenings we played many games. At night we talked with our room-mates and ate lots of crisps. We didn´t sleep much. According to most of us it was the best skiing trip in the world!
Skiers from 7.C

Our class arrived in Strážné as the last. It wasn´t freezing so the snow was thawing. We lived in a cottage called Vilka. We arrived at noon so we went skiing in the afternoon. We were divided into three skiing groups. The first group was the best and they were skiing on the most difficult skiing slopes, the third group on the easiest. The weather wasn´t cold all the time, but it was okay for skiing. We lived in rooms from 2 to 4 people. Every day we got up at about 7.30 and we had breakfast at 8. Next to Vilka was a building where we went to eat. After breakfast we returned to our rooms and we packed our bags for skiing. When we were ready, a ski-bus took us to the slopes where we made the groups. Each group had its own instructor. When we came back from the trip, we usually had one hour for relaxing. For cross-country skiing we had different groups. At 6 pm we had dinner and then we played some games with our teachers. We had to go to bed at 10pm. We think that all of us enjoyed it and nobody wanted to return back to school again.

The 50th school anniversary

On the 18th December 2007 our school celebrated its 50th birthday. The school was given an eighty-million crown renovation from the local authority. The public had a chance to have a look round the school the whole day. They could also visit workshops of the teachers which were aimed at media education. The main project topic was "A building of the centuries".
The official opening ceremony took place at 2 pm. The new school was opened by Tomas Chalupa, the mayor of Prague 6 and Jindrich Kitzberger, the vice-minister of education.
The mayor was willing to give an interview to the students who take part in the project Digiskills.

Finally, teachers, students and their parents met at the birthday party in Hotel Pyramida where they were reminded the school fifty-year history against a background of the worldwide events.

Halloween fun with the 5th grade

The 31st of October is the time of witches, ghosts, ghouls and of course pumpkins.


During the holidays in 2007 and at the start of another school year the school was finally renovated after fifty years.
Now the children can enjoy new colourful classrooms, corridors and toilets. The school has a new facade, renovated gymnasiums and school clubs.
Teachers waited patiently until big changes turned up and with financial support of the local authority new furniture for their rooms was bought.
There are new boards in the classrooms and thanks to the renovation a new project room was set up. It is also used for workshops.
