The recently launched LPP Distribution Centre in Brześć Kujawski is operating dynamically and aims at full operational efficiency. The company is also not slowing down when it comes to social activities in the municipality and has just decided to expand its cooperation with the local authorities of Brześć Kujawski. Within the framework of “Brześć Kujawski w Centrum Uwagi” [“Brześć Kujawski in the spotlight”] programme LPP will become a partner of the scholarship programme for primary school students established by the Municipality Council. In the new school year, the company also plans to continue other initiatives addressed towards the youngest inhabitants.
Since the beginning of its presence in Brześć Kujawski, the focus of LPP has gone beyond its business goals. The launch of the “Brześć Kujawski in the spotlight” programme in 2019 marked the beginning of the company’s cooperation with the local authorities, and the Polish clothing manufacturer has been undertaking many initiatives that have already become a permanent part of its activities for the local community, especially its youngest residents.
In the school year that is now finishing, 109 children starting primary school received gifts from the company as part of the “School starter kit” project. The third edition of a free English course was attended by 270 students, and 109 eighth graders took advantage of additional classes to prepare them for exams. As part of the LPP social programme, free extra-curricular classes in robotics and programming for grades 7 and 8, organised in cooperation with “Wahadło” Culture and History Centre in Brześć Kujawski and the State Vocational College in Włocławek, were held for the first time. These and many other projects, including the ones supporting sports activation of children and youth, the company plans to continue in the next school year. Moreover, with a view to long-term development in the region, LPP has decided to expand its cooperation with the authorities of Brześć Kujawski and support a new scholarship programme for exceptionally talented students.
– Supporting young people in developing their talents is a permanent feature of our social activity. LPP’s partnership in the new scholarship programme will complement our previous projects in the field of education. As a family business we understand the importance of shaping the young generation. By joining the scholarship programme, we want to motivate students to develop their creativity and boost their willingness to develop further. We believe that such activities also have an impact on the entire student community, because they show that hard work put into acquiring knowledge and skills is a worthwhile investment – says Jacek Kujawa, Vice-President of LPP.
The scholarship programme was established as part of the Local Programme for Supporting Education of Talented Children and Youth, adopted by the authorities of Brześć Kujawski and addressed to students of all primary schools in the municipality. It is a tangible form of realization of actions taken in order to provide appropriate educational conditions, which remain one of the priorities of the Brześć Kujawski local authorities.
– Our goal is to recognise the engagement and reward the most talented students of Brześć Kujawski schools. I am extremely pleased that within the framework of the scholarship programme adopted we will be able to support children and youth in developing their passions and interests within broadly defined education. I am absolutely convinced that the awarded funds will become a motivation for further work, not only for the awarded, but for the entire school community. I would like to express my gratitude to LPP for joining the project – says Tomasz Chymkowski, Mayor of Brześć Kujawski.
The programme entails awarding of scholarships to primary school pupils in two age categories – from grades 4 to 6 and from 7 to 8. In each of them, financial support in the amount of PLN 250 per month will be granted in two types of scholarships. The first one may be granted to a student with the highest average grade in the annual classification of obligatory educational classes, however, not lower than 4.8. The second type of scholarship for educational achievements may be awarded to students who achieved the average of at least 5.50 in the annual classification for students in grades 4 to 6 and 5.30 for students in grades 7 to 8. Scholarships will be granted for achievements obtained in the school year in which the application for a scholarship is submitted.
The application for scholarships may be submitted by the student’s parent or headmaster of the school attended by the child. The application should be submitted by 15 July to the Customer Service Centre at the City Hall in Brześć Kujawski. Payments will begin at the beginning of the new school year and will continue for a period of ten months, from September to June.
