The school offers a modern teaching base such as the cook’s room, computer
rooms, multimedial school centre, audio-visual equipment and FM systems.
There is a very well equipped gym containing a fitness club. Outside the gym
there is a new pitch.
Each student of our school is provided with complex psychological, pedagogic,
speech- therapy and nursing care.
The solid teaching base, well-trained teaching staff and a kind atmosphere
of the school make each student successfull. We try to teach effectively
enhancing the process of independent thinking and creative way of absorbing
knowledge. According to the needs of our students as well as their parents we
enable the possibility of study on different levels of education. We have
worked out a lot of interesting traditions creating a unique atmosphere of the
place. Simultaniously, we make use of every single possibility to leave for
educational, sight-seeing and recreational purposes. After lessons we give
a chance to develope personal interests and abilities in activity clubs such
as drama, music, art, computers.
Thinking not only about our students but also about their parents we try
to support them in the complex process of bringing up their children .
A good example of that is Parents’ Club established as a result of current
Awarding Marzena Michalik, the headmaster, the Golden Laurel of Skills
and Competence in the category of quot;Pro Publico Bonoquot; by the Local
Economic Chamber in Katowice
