The Independence Day is a national holiday in Poland, celebrated annually on November 11 to commemorate Poland regaining independence in 1918, after 123 years of partitions (1795–1918).

At the Meridian International Schools, the celebration of this holiday was combined with commemoration of other fights for freedom. In connection with the celebrations – guests visited us. They are veterans of the struggle for independence during World War II. We have received a letter from Veterans and a medal-gift from their Association.

The International Meridian Schools have also joined the nationwide MEN campaign ‘School remembers’.

Here is the content of the letter from the ministry:
