The Glamour and Style of the 80s at Wojciech Korfanty High School 20 April 2011

On April 6th 2011 both the students and teachers at Wojciech Korfanty High School had a unique opportunity to travel back in time and spend 3 hours in the 1980s. The English teachers, Ryszard Oślizło and Katarzyna Śnieg, had arranged two 80s-themed events. One of these was “A Chance of Success” – a song contest, where the students could show their vocal talents – while the other event was a visual-music programme called “Back to the 80s.”

ANOTHER CHANCE OF SUCCESS

Last year’s triumph of the “A Chance of Success” contest with Abba songs convinced the organizers to take up the challenge once again. The show’s hostess was Martyna Kosmala, and this year’s contestants sang the unforgettable hits performed by the greatest artists of the 80s, such as A-ha, George Michael, Cyndi Lauper, Roxette or Sandra.

The members of the jury were the top stars: Michael Jackson, Madonna and Wham. Their decision was both quick and unanimous when they decided to award the first prize to Małgorzata Cichecka, who had sung Madonna’s “La Isla Bonita” and to give an honourable mention to Bartłomiej Brandys for singing „Always On My Mind” originally performed by Pet Shop Boys. The prizes – “Greatest Hits of the 80s” CD albums – were handed by the headmistress, Mrs. Halina Hrynczyszyn.

A fact worth mentioning is that after an excellent performance by one of the contestants, Monika Stuchlik, she was invited by the Eliminacja band – a co-organizer of the contest – to record a song with them. Congratulations!


LISTEN TO AN EXCERPT NOW!

This year, aside from the thrill of music, singing and all the emotions involved, there were plenty of surprises awaiting the audience. One of these was a contest to check how well they knew the hits of the 80s. A five-minute montage of 20 music videos was presented to the public and those who wished to take part in the contest were asked to name as many of the performers as they could. The winner was Adrian Malinowski.

No doubt, the main attraction of the programme was the performance of a music phenomenon of the 80s – Modern Talking – boldly impersonated by Krystian Nowak and Adam Piernikarczyk. Colourful lights and smokes made their concert even more spectacular, providing the audience with fun-filled entertainment.

Towards the end of the first part of the programme, both the contestants and the audience were challenged to sing one of the greatest hits of the 80s, that is “We Are The World”. The song lyrics were displayed on a large screen to allow the public to fully participate, which everyone did, eagerly. It’s worth noting that this hit was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie and recorded by the supergroup USA for Africa as a benefit single for African famine relief.

BACK TO THE EIGHTIES

Before the thrill of the song contest cooled, the public had seen Katarzyna Wowrowska entering the stage and inviting everyone to enjoy the visual-music programme called “Back to the 80s.” She announced lots of attractions awaiting the audience.

The first one was a ten-minute documentary film about how Jastrzębie-Zdrój had looked like back in the 80s. Both students and teachers showed a lively interest in this short history of their hometown. The former were surprised and amused to recognize on the screen some familiar locations which often seemed completely different from Jastrzębie-Zdrój as they know it today.

The next item on the programme was the film equivalent of the music video contest which the audience had taken part in during “A Chance of Success”. The difference was that this time the participants were asked to name as many film titles as they could while watching a short montage. The winner was Martyna Kosmala who recognized as many as 25 films.

Another attraction was a fashion show arranged by Monika Łączniak whose “The 80s Collection” was presented by models of the 1d LO and 3d LO forms. The show was carried out to the sounds of „Wonderful Life” hit, an absolute must for any 80s fashion event.

And last but not least surprise on the programme was karaoke which got the public carried away singing some well known Polish hits originally performed by Lady Pank or Lombard. After such energetic songs, Urszula’s soothing ballad, “Slowly Waking, was the obvious choice to help round off the event.

SOME FUN, SOME MEMORIES

Going by the enthusiastic response, the public had a very good time travelling back to the 80s. Excellent fun for the young generation, the event proved to be a unique opportunity for many teachers to refresh their memories and remember the “old days”.

WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHO?

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!

A CHANCE OF SUCCESS

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.

WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE?

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.
