Polish students to sing national anthem simultaneously across the world

Over 12,500 schools, kindergartens and educational facilities declared their participation in the joint singing of the Polish anthem on the occasion of the National Independence Day - the 101st anniversary of the country regaining its independence.

The action will take place on November 8, falling on the last Friday before the national holiday, at 11:11 AM. Poland’s Ministry of National Education is the initiator of the event.

It is a continuation of last year’s initiative “Record for the Independent”, when the Polish anthem was sung by nearly 4.8 million students and 470,000 teachers in over 24,000 educational institutions all over Poland, as well as abroad.

Schools may sign up for the event until November 7. Educational institutions from abroad may declare their participation via the Centre for the Development of Polish Education Abroad.
