We will continue to work with passion and dedication towards achieving this goal, said Krzysztof Żuk, the Mayor of Lublin.

Additionally, the awards ceremony recognized schools and educational institutions that have achieved the highest standards of education, modern management practices, and significant accomplishments in educating children and youth, especially those with special educational needs. These schools and institutions were awarded the ‘Educational Excellence’ certificate, and one of the recipients was the Union of Lublin High School No. 3.
