our school


Władysław Orkan's Primary and Gymnasium School in Niedzwiedz is a mixed comprehensive with just over 400 pupils and 40 teachers. The school was named Wladyslaw Orkan's in memory of the famous Polish writer who was born in Poreba Wielka in the late 19th century. The school is divided into primary for 6-12-year-old children and gymnasium for 13-16-year-old children. It is located in the centre of the Niedzwiedz village halfway between Cracow and Zakopane one of the Poland's prime tourist attraction known as the "Winter Capital of Poland". The Gymnasium is an active and creative place focused on recognizing and developing each student skills. Our aim is to foster mutual respect and encourage learners to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to reach their potential as responsible, educated citizens of the twenty-first century. We also want to help our pupils cope with the requirements of secondary schools. The Gymnasium as well as the Primary School allows students to develop their skills in different fields such as art, sport, tourism, information technology, newspaper journalism, languages and many others. We have modern and well-equipped teaching base; a classroom with computers having access to Internet; a language lab; a science lab; a gym and a library. Most classrooms in our school are equipped with modern audiovisuals to use. A group of our pupils edit a very popular among the students as well as teachers school paper entitled "Gorce and We".
