Our Schools Prywatna Szkoła Podstawowa i Prywatne Liceum Ogólnokształcące im. Marii Skłodowskiej- Curie w Dąbrowie Górniczej, have been developing successful methodological tools for 26 years . These include employing teachers with specific artistic skills and sport abilities although their primary occupation is their subject. They are drama artists with their own theatrical experience, musicians and dancers as well as handball players, inline skaters, parachute jumpers, sailors, surfers, basketball players, e-sport trainers.

Thanks to this, the process of social inclusion of both neglected and at-risk youth is highly successful. Theeffects are stunning and the results measurable. Apart from sport activities we lead balanced nutrition into PE lessons and other methods to raise awareness of mental change and role of sport for everybody. Theoretical background of human needs teaches about yourself, enhancing and making habits lifelong. Our experience proves that the way from changing consciousness and perspective leads to harmony of emotions and to enabling learning functions on a pragmatic level. The other form of sport for students, especially those with medical specifications and multiple psychological disorders are dancing lessons implemented into school curriculum. Dancing and music develops body, mind condition and interpersonal communication. To confirm effectiveness of our activities students take photos, make and watch videos from their regular public performances like Flash Mobs, Lip Dubs, Song Covers taking place in stadiums, shopping centers, streets, parks, ice rinks, swimming pools and tennis courts. Our method, has enormous impact on school societies in our city because its innovative form of thinking and activating youth into society through art and sport as a tool, was and is still undermined. And dancing as a simple form of sport is an archetypic interpersonal communication tool that enables coping with complicated social behaviors like autopresentation, solving problems and eliminating psychological barriers. This way of acting builds up value added and leads to innovative approach to the holistic view of present-day education. It is implemented in our 3 schools on daily basis engaging teachers in multiple artistic actions such as fancy-dress parties, celebrations of Dance Day and Sport Day. Teachers actively participate in social events setting a good example to all the students. The number of students is 400 and includes the ages from 7-19. For this reason sport and art with theatrical classes is a paradigm which unites the school society.
