  5. 5. VOLUNTEERING REPORTSymbol of the ‘Christmas Box’ Symbol of the most known 1 2charity campaign Polish charity campaign Last Christmas, on December 18th me and my friend Kuba went to the shopping mall to help people as volunteers. We were packing food to bags and spreading leaflets about ‘Christmas Box’ all evening. ‘Christmas box’ is a campaign, which supports poor and hungry residents in winter time. Thanks to that charity, the help offered can change someone’s life and make their Christmas full of joy. I was really sad and tired because no one wanted to see those people’s problems. Many customers were passing by us without getting noticed this important action but some of them really wanted to share their material goods. Kuba decided not to give up and we did it ! Finally, about three hours later, we had five trolleys full of eating. We reached our point and we were incredibly happy! It was the first time I took part in such an event. I have gained another experience, which taught me to be patient and tenacious. This year I have declared to take part in the biggest volunteer project ever. It is called ‘The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity’. Teenagers, adults and even old people join in it to help hospitals with buying medical equipment. For the 20th time, it will take place on January the 8th. I’m excited and ready to go around the city and raise money for good cause. Volunteering is the best way to show compassion and commitment to helping others. JW 1-image source: 2-image source: 5
  6. 6. Is school a waste of time ?1 It is believed that school is an institution, which provides us only with pure profits. Most of students disagree with this opinion. They go to school to meet friends, not to learn. However, I think that in everyday life we would not cope with simple things without education. At first, knowledge is nowhere as needed as nothing else. Without basic skills such as reading or counting we would not manage to do anything. For example, while buying in a shop we would not be able to estimate things we can afford. Moreover, everybody wants to have a good job and earn some money. Is it possible without scholarship ? Of course not. Secondly, how could we ensure our children’s future without knowledge? School teaches us about life too. We learn how to overcome obstacles, make friends, how to behave. Our parents send us to school in good faith. They want us to become wise and responsible because they care about us. Thirdly, pupils attending to that kind of institution have access to new technology. Modern equipment is placed in rebuilt or renewed classrooms. It encourages students to learn more and makes lessons more enjoyable. As a result, the level of efficiency raises enormously. On the other hand, we spend most of the time at school. Instead of doing creative and interesting things, developing hobbies we sit on a chair and learn for tests and exams. Isnt it boring ? Somehow school might be a waste of time. Another argument against is wrong behavior and ill-usage, for example among teenagers and generally in school environment. Bullying, violence or persecution are everyday problems. ‘Terrorized’ children are afraid to go to school and it is a terrifying obligation to them. It is also a difficult problem and duty to deal with. In conclusion, I think we should not perceive education as a penalty or a waste of time. It gives us experience and many other things, that nothing else can give us. Hopefully, someday we will realize that we were wrong about it.

  8. 8. Food habits - what to eat? There are many different cuisines in the world because nearlyevery country has its own one. Multiplicity of cuisines and food habitsis a consequence of countries’ location and sometimes lifestyle ofinhabitants. For example in Japan people eat fishes (sushi) or fruits of thesea, in India corn products, in Swiss cheese, chocolates and ham, inthe USA fast foods (McDonald’s), in Sweden meat and cheese or inGreece fruit and vegetables. It is hard to state which cuisine is the best, the healthiest or themost popular but the net surfers decided that they like Italian cuisinethe most. In this country the most popular dishes are spaghetti, pizzaand lasagna. Italian coffee and ice cream are also world famous. Healthy food habits: • You should eat 5 times a day. • You need about 2500 kcal a day. • Dinner should be the most abundant dish and supper the less. • You should eat your last meal 3-4 hours before sleeping. • Do not forget about eating fruit and vegetables. • Try to avoid preservatives.

  9. 9. World dangers – Are they real? Global warming We all are responsible for our planet, but does everyone understand this? Global warming is avery big problem since the sixties. Temperature on the earth and around it is rising very fast.The effects of this process are very dangerous for our future.I interviewed my best friend on the topic.Me: Hey!Bf: Hey!Me: I want to ask you some questions about global warming. Do you agree?Bf: Yes, of course.Me: Do you think global warming is a real danger?Bf: Yes, I think it’s the one of the biggest dangers in our world. Temperature is rising, asa result polar ice caps are melting and all animals which live on the pole are in danger.But it’s not the only one result of this process.Me: Do you know any other results?Bf: For example, destroying of natural ecosystems like Great Barrier Reef. Scientistobserve bleaching and necrosis of GBR. A lot of animals which live there are dying orfind other places to live.Me: Do you think that conflicts in Africa are a result of global warming?Bf: Yes, of course!. The reduction of water supplies because of vaporization and thesmaller crops, in countries suffering from hunger, can cause local conflicts and wars.Me: And what would you do to save our planet?Bf: Everybody knows that deodorants are destroying the ozone layer, which protects usfrom UV rays. So I would try to use just deodorants in the ball and perfumes. Also I goto school by bike, not by car or bus, because I know that they are producing a lot ofCO2, which is the main reason of Global warming.Me: Thanks so much for this information.Bf: No problem. See you soon. PS 9
