The tradition of the American and British Culture Day are
contests for children: artistic contest "The Culture and Art of English-Speaking
Countries" for primary schools (classes I-III), linguistically artistic
contest "Letter to Santa Claus"( classes IV - VI) and theatrical contest

This year on 6th of December, for the 6th time we could admire
the work and performances of talented young people. Moreover, during this contest
we also had possibility of listening to choir of the Music Education students,
or take part in the quiz about Great Britain and in the Christmas Karaoke, prepared
by students from science club Active Minds (English Studies).
The main purpose of the initiative was to promote the culture
of English-speaking countries among children and youths - students of local
schools - and to encourage young people to learn and improve their English.
The winner was group from the Diocesan Middle School in Nysa, with their play
