On Friday afternoon, swordsmen from the historical fencing group HECTOR came to our school. The pupils were divided into teams and together on the "battlefield" they experienced the feelings of knights facing various pitfalls. The baits came in the form of foam balls during the historical paintball, or in battles with softened swords and shields. We have successfully completed all the challenges and at the end we understood that being a knight is not just a nice armor, a horse and a hill of fame, but that it is also an effort to be better and not give up even at the time of difficult trials. This was followed by a barbeque, movies and entertainment until later at night. We enjoyed the history based activities and we look forward to seeing what the school will prepare for us next year.
