Our school, as the first in the region, decided to introduce an electronic school register. This attractive form of informing parents about their children’s progress has been operating for three years. The e-register has a mobilizing impact on students and facilitates the learning process.
The school is friendly and safe. All school events and the school building are monitored by a security agency. The school complex is under video surveillance. This preventive measure is one of the ways of ensuring safety at school.
The students of Zespol Szkol Zawodowych are not solely occupied with studying. We cannot forget about entertainment. It is a tradition of our school to organize events of admitting students to our school, mid-school parties, proms. Every year we celebrate sports day and spring festival. The recent school tradition are graduate reunions.
It is worth highlighting that our school is geared towards the needs of the disabled – a special lift makes moving between floors easier. The school nurse watches over students’ health. The counselor and psychologist help to handle personal problems, and the ombudsman for children aids in solving school dilemmas.
