Christmas Eve in "Diamond"

10mBefore Christmas three special Christmas Eve Meetings took place. These are unusual events in "Diamond" Center and we all work a lot to prepare them.
In our Clubs in Warsaw and Białystok children presented special programs and Christmas shows. In Białystok we held multimedia show entitled "Memories from the camp". In both Clubs we had special dinners. As the ending of the evenings children received presents. Children and their parents did not want to leave our meetings and the evenings were prolonged in a very nice atmosphere.
In the framework of our weekend meetings with children from orphanages, we had Christmas weekend. On Saturday, children together with their friendly families met all together for dinner. Everyone wanted to have their share in preparing this evening and everyone could experience its special atmosphere. After dinner children also received presents.


What is Christmas for us?

2In many houses Christmas is time of colorful Christmas tree, carp fish, red beet soup and... that's all. In today's modern world even the habit of so called "family holiday" is no longer cultivated. For us, the time of preparation to Christmas is still special, because then we can explain to our pupils its real meaning and massage.



Events for Children's Day

9 m

Children's Day was very exciting this year in both of our Clubs. Children from Children's Club of Friends in Warsaw have been invited to visit a unit of Polish Army at 13 Zwirki i Wigury Street. This visit was full of attractions and was held on 29th of May 2008. Children could see the show of soldier's fitness. Later they visited the unit and its equipment, they also saw the soldier's armament. Children were invited to the hall where army orchestra is practicing and they could try to play on the instruments. The time they spent was finished with eating of a real army meal (pea's soup). In "Diamond" Children's Club in Białystok we have organized a trip to the airport on 31st of May 2008. Members of the Club got general information on parachuting and gliding. They could visit and get into the school glider "Puchacz" and the airplane AN-2, which takes the parachutists. The excursion was held on the ordinary work day, so children could also observe departs and landings and parachuting as well. They all were very interested. Our excursion had finished with the visit in the Ice Cream Shop.
