Liceum Ogolnoksztalcace im. P.Skargi in Grojec (L.O. Grojec) is an upper secondary school preparing students, aged 15 to 18, for university education. The school is one of the oldest ones in the district of Grojec and in the whole Mazowiecke Province. It was founded in 1912. There are 50 teachers and about 600 students in the school. The secondary school students come from different social backgrounds. A large number of students come from rural areas and even though they are ambitious and well behaved most of them need to be strongly motivated to take an active part in school life. Despite the fact that there are a few organizations existing at school (e.g. Red Cross, Volunteers’ Club, Film Discussion Club or Students’ Sport Club), they still need additional, multicultural activities so that they could be more actively involved in the school life and cooperate more willingly, understanding the importance of both their cultural roots and respect for different social and cultural backgrounds. There are only a few students of ethnic minorities, which means that the school as well as local communities need to be made more familiar with the issue of migrations. The school is situated in a small town (about 17 thousand inhabitants), which makes it easier to be in touch with students’ parents in order to solve problems immediately. The students feel the need of, and have deep interest in, learning about other cultures and making friends with students from abroad.
