Artem Veselov ESC Volunteering '24

Monday

I stared my first full day at the school with my Mentor Marcin - I had a Polish lesson, i to była świetna zabawa?

 

Then, I spent two hours in swietlica with Ula conducting a painting workshop for the children. I asked the students to recreate Monet's Water Lily Pond or at least gain inspiration from the famous masterpiece.

The iconic motif that artists often follow as well as numerous variations of the composition recreated by them and Claude Monet himself have made room for authentic interpretations, which is certainly helpful for children. Because of that, everyone was able to reach authentic results they were satisfied with and proud of while following some basic rules and recommendations I gave.

 

Then, I had an English class with the 7th grade. After I briefly introduced myself, Emilka suggested I share about the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, and I delivered a speech focusing on my experiences, the disruption of social life, education, infrastructure, and the environment.

 

After that, I had another hour in swietlica, where children had the opportunity to create and present their individual works. Then, we tried some tabletop games, and my first day was finished.

 

Tuesday

On Tuesday, Emilia invited me to join her class' afterschool gathering.-

There, we were mainly discussing the types of classes I can organize at the school, and I shared my ideas as well as my past materials and projects.

 

So, we decided that after my on-arrival training in Warsaw, I will focus on these classes:

  • Art workshops: creating drawings, paintings, and handicrafts

  • Thematic English classes: discussion-based lessons focused on various topics including social, scientific, technological, environmental, artistic, etc.

  • Minecraft-based classes focuses on using the virtual platform for designing and recreating various structures and planning sustainable communities

Wednesday

On Wednesday, I spent several hours in swietlica, where I had English classes.

 

 

 

 

I was reading Peter Pan to the students while they were drawing. Then, we discussed the words and phrases which we found in the text.

Lastly, I had a visit to the mayor of Wasilkow at the city hall together with the principal. It was a nice and pleasant episode, which also concluded my first week at the school because on Thursday and Friday, I had a training by ANAWOJ, my lead organisation, with other ESC volunteers in Bialystok.

 

 

 Monday

I stared the week in swietlica, where we were mainly making Christmas gonks with wool.

 

 

 

 

 

Tuesday

On Tuesday, I joined the welcoming ceremony for the visiting teachers from Romania and North Macedonia through Erasmus. 

 

 

After that, I offered a bit of help for some students with mock interviews they had to have with the visiting teachers later.

Later in the evening, we had a tour in the center of Bialystok, and then had a dinner together with some of our teachers.

 

 

 

 

 

Wednesday

On Wednesday, we had a workshop about non-violent communication and active citizenship.

 

 

After that, we visited Swieta Woda and the Museum of icons and the waterfront in Suprasl

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Thursday

 

 

 

On Thursday, I spent my entire day in swietlica, where we were decorating the classroom with Christmas handicrafts

 

Friday

On Friday, we had the final meeting about the Erasmus project in the principal's room. After that, I joined the teachers along with the visiting group for a farewell party in the evening

 

 
 

The last week before my on-arrival training is Warsaw was mostly spent in the pre-Christmas hustle.

During the first half of the week, I was staying in świetlica, where the students and I were decorating the classroom.

 
On Wednesday, I also had several English speaking classes. On top of that, I was working on a presentation about Ukrainian winter traditions and celebrations for my upcoming English classes and for the Białystok volunteers' visits to another school and a youth center on Thursday. 
 
 

 

End of the 1st semester (Jan 2 - Jan 19)

After the Christmas break, there were several changes in my involvement at the school. 

Firstly, at the beginning of January, Eliška, another volunteer, has arrived. Together, we started to lead art sessions on Mondays and occasionally work in świetlica together.


In swietlica, after creating numerous Christmas handicrafts in December, we shifted towards  drawings and handicrafts on subjects like nature and spring. I also came up with an idea of decorating paper cards with colored pencil ornaments inspired by pysanky, traditional Ukrainian Easter egg decorations somewhat close to Polish pisanki. 



Lastly, we began setting up a Dash robot and tablets to later use them in świetlica and for Informatics classes.

Also, I started tutoring a displaced Ukrainian student in English and Math on a one to one basis.

Finally, I started to lead Minecraft classes for 4a and 4b.
