Our school took part in a sign language competition last week. Class III and IV students competed against participants from other schools in our city.
Their task was to 'show' poems by one of our famous Polish writers Jan Brzechwa. Children competed individually and as teams. There were beginners and advanced groups.
The objective of the competition is to make children aware of the existence of such a language and to popularize and promote it as means of communication. In that way, children become more aware and open to new possibilities that make us realize that we can always find a way in which we'll be understood by others.
