A part of action "My word - my voice", organized with aim to present the project
"Education - Assumption of the change" in Krížová Ves, was a friendly football match between pupils of the secondary school and selection of local residents. M. A.

Our secondary school was represented by players from 3A class, with the captain Július Polhoš. The match was played on the soccer field of Elementary school in Krížová Ves. The meeting took place in a friendly spirit, fair play, numerous domestic spectators passionately supported their community, but the final score of the match was 6 : 2 in favor of the student team of our secondary school. We hope that this victory will be followed by others - at sports stadiums, but also in classrooms...
After a successful sporting competition our students exchanged their jerseys for costumes and athletes, along with their classmates, started another "match " - this time in the cultural field. A few moments to gasp as the audience filled the space of the Community center in Krížová Ves and the program begin.
Before the official part of event has started, a time for an informal meeting with the audience remains. Hall is full of children and young people, all are curious and want to meet with performers. There is also a space for eager dancers...
Cooperation with authorities at the local level was without problems thanks to personal engagement and commitment of students coming directly from Krížová Ves as for example student Mário Horváth from 3A class who ensured cooperation between local authorities and our Deputy Director. Thanks to him and thanks to his classmate, Peter Hangurbadžo, hall was filled with spectators, and M. A. Stanislav Eleniuk have presented the project in front of a full auditorium...
