On 29th September 2022, we had the opportunity to celebrate 30-year anniversary of Polish Scholarship Scheme. The anniversary was celebrated at the Polish Embassy in London, where we gathered, first and foremost, to share our best memories of the schools. The last 30 years have seen 325 scholarships awarded, 29 partner schools, and many volunteers who make it possible every year for a group of talented teenagers to go abroad and embark on one of the greatest adventures of their lives. Of course, we could not imagine the ceremony without the representatives from our partner schools, which are a very important part of the success of the scheme. We had the opportunity to host representatives from Dulwich, Chigwell, Royal, Clifton, Rugby, and Downside. In the artistic part, we listened to two violin pieces performed by Dawid Kasprzak from Wells Cathedral School. The icing on the cake was a mini recital by our alumna, Alexandra Wittchen (Clifton College, 2012-2014), who, as usual, delighted us with her beautiful operatic voice. David and Ola were accompanied at the piano by Nicolas Lauener.
