Students from Mościszki received new e-book readers
Students from Mościszki received new e-book readers.
23 new e-book readers were donated to the Primary School in Mościszki today. It is a gift from the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Vilnius at the initiative of the Polish Foundation Supporting Education Abroad ‘Self-Determination’.
The Consul General of the Republic of Poland, Stanisław Cygnarowski, and the chairman of the Polish Foundation Supporting Education Abroad ‘Self-Determination’, Stanisław Pieszko, handed these gifts to the pupils.
The students of the Polish school in Mościszki received not only new e-books, which will surely make learning more attractive, but also around 200 new books and educational games.
‘Every donation for the school is important. But this gift, new e-book readers and books, made our students really happy. It’s especially nice in the time of Christmas.’ – gladly said Waldemar Klimaszewski, the headmaster of the school in Mościszki.
As the chairman of the ‘Self-Determination’ Foundation told us, the idea of the donation was discussed for a long time with the school’s headmaster. The Polish school in Mościszki needed new teaching and learning aids.
Pieszko hopes that thanks to those e- book readers the students will be more interested in learning and soon they will place school books and needed text books there. ‘Currently nearly every pupil falls asleep with their phone. I hope that from that day they will fall asleep with their e-book readers’- jokingly said the chairman.
It is an another set of e-book readers that were donated to pupils from the Vilnius Region at the initiative of the ‘Self-Determination’ Foundation. Last year through this foundation Ewa and Adam Bąk from the United Stated donated 10 e-book readers to the Michał Baliński High School in Jašiūnai.
