Szkoła Podstawowa nr 7 im. T. Kościuszki is located in one of the industrial areas of Lower Silesia. The school has got 540 students and 42 teachers. Students live in a diverse social environment (single parents, parents living abroad, children from pathological or poor families) nevertheless, they are clever, talented and open-minded. Moreover, they have succeeded in many communal, county and all- Polish competitions. Less wealthy students receive assistance in the form of parcels with food and clothing, free meals at the school’s canteen and Christmas presents.
Our school creates favourable conditions for physically disabled children. It offers a wide range of extra- curricular activities which enable intellectual development and satisfy the various spheres of students’ interests. We cooperate with many non-profit organizations such as “Noworudzkie Stowarzyszenie Osób Niepełnosprawnych”(Disabled People Association in Nowa Ruda), (“Noworudzkie Koło Polskiego Klubu Ekologicznego”(Polish Ecological Club in Nowa Ruda), “Stowarzyszenie Pro Publico Bono”, (Pro Publico Bono Association) “Park Narodowy Gór Sowich” (The Table Mountains National Park) and “Polskie Towarzystwo Turystyczno-Krajoznawcze” (PTTK- Polish Tourist Association).
Our school has its own technical resources such as overhead projectors, ICT laboratory, gym and library with the Internet connection. Students have the opportunity to attend swimming classes free of charge. Despite of the fact that our city is located far from the theatres, children willingly take part in performances of traveling theatres.
