The two school contests that took place on Tuesday, 8 December 2009, were part of the English Days at Wojciech Korfanty High School and were arranged and prepared by English teachers, Ryszard Oślizło and Katarzyna Śnieg helped by the following committed students, respectively:

A Chance of Success: Patryk Szlędak, Klaudia Zalewska, Dominika Zając, Sylwia Sądowska and Weronika Urbańska.

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?: Martyna Kosmala and Małgorzata Cichecka.

And don’t let us forget about the priceless help of our school radio staff: Adam Piernikarczyk and Dariusz Szymański. Thank you very much for your work and time. It wouldn’t be the same without you!


As Mr. Wojciech Mann couldn’t make it to our show, we had Patryk Szlędak instead, who did his job as the host wonderfully. Obviously, it was a piece of cake for him!

We had 7 contestants, some of whom chose to sing in duos and one who sang solo. The first pair of contestants were Magdalena Krupka and Klaudia Fryzowicz who picked and sang “Knowing Me, Knowing You” and their performance set a high-level example for the remaining singers. Fortunately, as it turned out, all of them were so good that the legendary band ABBA had a tough nut to crack deciding who should win.

Following Magdalena and Klaudia, the stage was all for Justyna Myśliwiec and Sylwia Mazurkiewicz, who amazed the audience not only with their voices but also dance arrangement which successfully enriched their performance.

After that, Małgorzata Cichecka stepped onto the stage and left us all completely speechless, when we heard her clear, powerful and beautiful voice, while she was singing “Gimme, Gimme, Gimme”. No doubt Abba themselves must have been marvelled at her performance, because they voted for her to be the winner of the contest.

Finally, the audience attention was captured by a modern and bold interpretation of the last hit song presented during the contest – “Money, Money, Money” – which Marlena Sojka and Krystian Nowak decided to rap rather than sing.

At that point, the contest came to an end, but it wasn’t the end of surprises yet. Out of the blue, a great pop-star appeared on the stage. To the complete shock and delight of the audience, Lady GaGa performed one of her greatest hits and a bold, daredevil dance, making our show even more glamorous and exciting.

All in all, the contest proved both astounding and delightful talents of all of the contestants and provided the audience with a lot of good fun.

No sooner had the excitement after “The Chance of Success” lessened than another thrilling event started: a long awaited school edition of the world famous quiz “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?”.

We had 9 two student teams of contestants, all ready and waiting for their chance to show off their knowledge. The show started with our two lovely hostesses, Martyna Kosmala and Małgorzata Cichecka, who welcomed the people in the audience and explained a few rules to be followed in the school edition of the show.

Each team of contestants picked a set of questions which might have been either themed (English Speaking Countries, Geography, Science, Literature and TV series) or mixed. Each set contained 15 questions and the contestants had 3 lifelines to use: Fifty-Fifty, Ask the Expert and Translate the Question (the latter lifeline was never used by any team) and they had half a minute to answer each question.

After having a lot of good fun and answering nearly one hundred questions by all the contestants, the proud winners were finally revealed – Patrycja Sikora and Małgorzata Reguła. The second and third prizes were won respectively by Tomasz Dębski/Aleksander Woźniak and Anna Nguyen Van/Daniel Szczepanik.
