RULES OF RECRUITMENT IN THE 2013/2014 SCHOOL YEAR

Seated in Warsaw, ORPEG (the Centre for the Development of Polish Education Abroad) is responsible for coordinating tasks relating to the education of the children of Polish citizens on temporary stays abroad.

In accordance with § 4 of the Regulation of the Minister of National Education of August 31st 2010 on the organisation of the education of the children of Polish citizens on temporary stays abroad (the Dziennik Ustaw Official Journal of Laws of 2010, no. 170, item 1143), the children of Polish citizens in this category may comply with school obligations and obligations as regards learning through:      

attendance at a school operating within the educational system of another country;

attendance at a European School operating by virtue of the Convention defining the Statute of the European Schools;

compliance with the obligation as regards schooling or as regards learning outside school, by virtue of Art. 16, paras 8-14 of the Act of September 7th 1991 on the Education System;

participation in the distance learning offered by the ”National Education Commission” Schools of ORPEG (the Centre for the Development of Polish Education Abroad) in Warsaw, as this entails implementation of a supplementary learning plan.

Foreseen in the case of pupils meeting the local obligation as regards schooling is a supplementary learning plan with teaching of Polish Language and Knowledge of Poland. In turn, in the case of pupils unable for justified reasons to meet obligations as regards schooling, it is the framework learning plan that is envisaged.

Rules of recruitment to the ”National Education Commission” Schools at the Centre for the Development of Polish Education Abroad (ORPEG) in Warsaw in the 2013/2014 school year – framework learning plan

Distance learning at the ORPEG schools, encompassing the framework learning plan, may be engaged in by pupils finding themselves abroad temporarily:

travelling, not having a permanent place of residence;

whose life conditions or work make it impossible for them to meet educational obligations in the local system (on account of their being sportsmen or women, artists, and so on);

in a country in which, in line with the duration of educational obligations in force there, there is no possibility of continuing to attend school.

Under the Regulation of the Minister of National Education of August 27th 2012 on the core curricula for pre-school upbringing and general education at the different types of school (see the Dziennik Ustaw Official Journal of Laws of 2012, item 977), the ORPEG schools pursue educational programmes that take account of the core curriculum for general education as set out in the aforementioned regulations. Schooling at the ORPEG schools is free.

The framework learning plan implemented at a given type of school is as detailed in relevant legal provisions (Regulation of the Minister of National Education of February 7th 2012 on framework learning plans in public schools, Dziennik Ustaw of 2012, item 204).

Participation in distance learning is first and foremost a matter of self-learning (ensuring that the role of parents and legal guardians is of particular importance in the case of younger children, since the former are in a position to help children in becoming systematically familiar with the teaching material). Pupils availing of this kind of learning opportunity are obliged to prepare test assignments within established deadlines , as well as to participate in classification examinations in both written and oral form. It is on the basis of the successful completion of all of these tasks (submission of written test assignments and participation in written and oral classification exams run in Warsaw) that the Teachers’ Council allows a pupil to advance to a next class. >>Learn more about the Schedule for the submission of written test assignments in the 2013/2014 school year.

ORPEG does not discharge an annual obligation to prepare children of pre-school age for school.

A condition for acceptance into a school pursuing a framework learning plan is the submission to ORPEG of full application documentation, which will confirm the stay abroad, as well as the lack of a possibility to take up studies in a school in the current country of residence. The specifics of the situation will thus need to be described precisely in an application addressed to the Director of ORPEG which will also include a request that a pupil be accepted by a given school.

Application documentation:

an application to the Director of ORPEG;

a completed application questionnaire (>>download here);

an original version of the last school certificate, and in the case:

  • of application for the High School’s Year III – originals of certificates from the High School’s Years I and II,
  • of the possession of certification from a school abroad – the submission of a document confirming the total number of years in education, together with a translation into Polish, which will be attested to by a notary or eligible employee of an Embassy or Consulate,
  • of application for the second semester – information from the previous school regarding the marks obtained at the end of the first semester;

an original version of the relevant birth certificate, or else a notarially-confirmed copy or copy attested to by an employee of an Embassy or Consulate.

Deadline for the submission of documents: August 30th 2013. Documents need to be submitted in person or by way of correspondence to the ORPEG address.

Pupils advancing to a higher class from the point of view of the programme become pupils of the next class at the given educational stage, with no need for any renewed submission of documents.

However, once an ORPEG pupil has completed a further educational stage (i.e. by completing education at Primary School or Junior High School), he or she is obliged to submit application documentation once again.

In the event of a pupil withdrawing from any further participation at a school, information to this effect is to be lodged in writing (solely by parents of legal guardians in the case of pupils who are minors).

Within 3 days of the date of submission of application documentation, parents or legal guardians will receive a written response regarding acceptance or rejection of a pupil for a given educational stage. Should there be any doubts or questions, the parents or legal guardians will be asked to explain or provide supplementary information, possibly in this way prolonging the time limit referred to above.

>>Schedule for pupils pursuing the framework learning plan in the 2013/2014 school year

Rules of recruitment to ORPEG’s ”National Education Commission” Schools in Warsaw, as these implement – in the 2013/2014 school year – teaching programmes that provide for curricular frameworks for supplementary learning.

Distance-learning, entailing the pursuit of a supplementary learning plan, is addressed to the children of Polish citizens spending time abroad on what is deemed to be a temporary basis, where these meet the obligations as regards schooling and learning by way of attendance at schools operating within the educational system of the country of residence, but at the same time have no possibility of participating in lessons given in the Polish language.

In accordance with the Regulation of the Minister of National Education of August 31st 2010 on the organisation of the education of the children of Polish citizens on temporary stays abroad (the Dziennik Ustaw Official Journal of Laws of 2010, no. 170, item 1143), distance learning takes place via supplementary learning plans in respect of Polis Language and Knowledge of Poland – at the levels of Primary, Junior High and High Schools. The teaching involved in this case is free of charge.

Participation in distance learning is first and foremost a matter of self-learning (ensuring that the role of parents and legal guardians is of particular importance in the case of younger children, since the former are in a position to help children in becoming systematically familiar with the teaching material). Pupils availing of this kind of learning opportunity are obliged to prepare test assignments within established deadlines , as well as to participate in classification examinations in both written and oral form. It is on the basis of the successful completion of all of these tasks (submission of written test assignments and participation in written and oral classification exams run in Warsaw) that pupils advance to the next class when given permission to do so by the Teachers’ Council. >>See timetable for the submission of written assignments in the 2013/2014 school year.

ORPEG does not offer compulsory pre-school preparation on an annual basis.

Application documentation:

A precondition for a pupil’s acceptance into one of the schools implementing teaching programmes that encompass the core curriculum in its supplementary learning aspect is the completion and submission to ORPEG of full application documentation, i.e.

an application to the Director of ORPEG seeking to have a given pupil accepted;

a completed application questionnaire (>>download here);

copies of the most recent school certificates, and, in the cases of:

possession of certification from a school abroad – the presentation of a document attesting to the overall number of years at school, together with a translation into Polish attested to by a notary or authorised Embassy or consular employee,

an entry involving a pupil from the second semester on, seeking to pursue a programme of teaching taking account of the supplementary learning aspects of the curriculum - information from the previous school as to the grades obtained at the end of the first semester.

an original of the birth certificate or a notarially-witnessed copy, or else a copy attested to by an authorised employee or an Embassy or Consulate

The deadline for the submission of applications is August 30th 2013. Documents will need to be submitted in person, or as appended to a letter sent to the ORPEG address.

Pupils advancing to a class that is higher in terms of the curriculum become pupils of that next class at the given stage in their education without being obliged to resubmit documents.

However, as ORPEG pupils move through to a consecutive stage in their formal education, i.e. to Primary School or Junior High School, they are then obliged to resubmit application documents.

Should further attendance at a school cease, information to this effect should be supplied in writing (solely by parents or legal guardians in the case of pupils who are minors).

Within three days of their submission of application documents, parents or legal guardians will receive a written response regarding acceptance or rejection of a given pupil to a school at a given stage in the educational process. In the event of there being any doubt or questions, parents or legal guardians will be asked for an explanation of for supplementary information, this then potentially leading to the prolongation of the deadline referred to.

THE ”NATIONAL EDUCATION COMMISSION” PRIMARY SCHOOL

The ”National Education Commission” Primary School operating within the structure of the Warsaw-based Centre for the Development of Polish Education Abroad (ORPEG) makes it possible for each Polish pupil spending time abroad to acquire the fundamentals of learning. The School takes on children from age 6 onwards, introducing them to the world of knowledge and taking care to ensure harmonious intellectual, ethical, emotional, social and physical development.

Educational stages

Teaching at the ”National Education Commission” Primary School takes place within the framework of stages I and II of the Polish educational system, which is to say the so-called first to third, and fourth to sixth, years inclusive.

Early school education

We do not run any pre-school or kindergarten classes, which means that pupils who are already 6 years old may be registered for Class I at the Primary School. Pupils of Classes I-III on the framework learning plan pursue their early-school education by way of integrated teaching. In contrast, pupils with the supplementary learning plan take Polish Language and Knowledge of Poland. Parents are very helpful at the early-school education stage, and they often incorporate the role of both teacher and individual learning assistant.

Curricula

Under the framework learning plan, pupils of Classes IV-VI work on such subjects as Polish Language, a modern foreign language, Music, Art and Crafts, Computer Classes, Design and Technology, PE, Upbringing for Family Life and RE/Ethics. In turn, in line with the supplementary learning plan’s new core curriculum, pupils take classes in the Polish Language and Knowledge of Poland, as well as Polish Language and History in the fourth class of the 2012/13 school year.

Shaping attitudes

One of the most import ant tasks of the ”National Education Commission” Primary School is the shaping of skills with the Polish Language, including as regards enrichment of the vocabulary resources of Polish pupils spending time abroad. However, an equally important aspect is the encouragement of civic virtues and a respect for the traditions and culture of Poland, as well as other cultures. The School seeks to strengthen personality traits favouring pupils’ indivdiual and social development, including honesty, reliability, responsibility, persistence, a feeling of worth, respect for others, interest in the world, creativity, personal culture, a readiness to participate in cultural events and to take the initiative and the skill needed to engage in teamwork.

Contact with pupils via the “Open School” e-learning platform makes it possible for teachers to take an individually-tailored approach that is in line with needs and opportunities.

THE “NATIONAL EDUCATION COMMISSION” JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL

The “National Education Commission” Junior High School operating within the ORPEG structure provides opportunities for the knowledge and skills acquired at Primary School level to be further broadened, deepened and developed.

Under the supplementary learning plan, pupils have Polish Language and Knowledge of Poland classes, as well as taking History and Geography of Poland in Class III.

Acquiring knowledge and skills

The years of teaching at the Junior High School constitute a very important stage in the development of a young person. During these three years, pupils acquire a large part of both their knowledge and their skills, e.g. in respect of the so-called general education that will later be tested at the matriculation exam stage.

Nurturing Polishness

The task of the „National Education Commission” Junior High School is to develop skill with the use of the Polish language, and to shape attitudes entailing respect for the tradition and culture of one’s own nation, as well as respect for other cultures too.

Contact with pupils via the ”Open School” (Otwarta szkoła) e-learning platform makes it possible for teachers to take an individual approach to each pupil, in line with the latter’s needs and capabilities.
