National identity in the school education process

The Educational Research Institute would like to invite you to participate in two events organised by the team of the project "National Identity in the School Education Process": an online debate, as well as a contest for 7th and 8th grade primary school students and students of all secondary schools.

Online debate "National identity in the school education process"

The debate will take place

  • 17 April 2024
  • at 12:00-14:15
  • on the Google Meet platform

The aim of the debate is to try to answer questions about:

  • the methodology of working with students to shape national identity
  • the ways of expressing students' national identity at different school levels
  • the ways of educating towards national identity in multicultural conditions
  • education towards national identity through regional education

The debate will include a discussion with teachers and experts about the place of national identity in education in Polish schools and the challenges this poses. 

More information about the debate can be found on the project’s website.


Contests for primary and secondary school students

Schools are invited to participate in art contests on national identity.

Two editions of the contest will be held, starting as early as April 8:

  • for pupils in the 7th and 8th grades of primary school,
  • for students in all grades of secondary schools.

The aim of both contests is to interest young people in issues of national identity and to stimulate their creativity in this area, as well as to support the activities of teachers.

Each winner, that is, the winning school, will receive a diploma and a prize of 30 copies of the educational kit “Regional Education. Regional Walks”, which is an invitation to the world of culture, adventure and tradition and helps to learn about the regions of Poland, their beauty, history and interesting facts. In addition, every teacher who enters students in the contest will receive a certificate of participation.
