Among the projects activities will stimulate curiosity about the world, acquaintance with tradition, history and local and regional cultures, and will build sensitivity to aesthetics, art and music. The school has established new contacts with cultural institutions - the Jan Kochanowski Theater in Opole, where they will conduct authorial workshops on acting.
