A special project for Polish schools
In late 2019, Rockfon organized a nationwide competition for primary schools in Poland. The key objective of the campaign was to raise awareness among the students as well as the educational institutions themselves, about the effects of noise pollution in schools and solutions available to minimize it. In addition to individual prizes for students - authors of the best competition entries - there were also prizes and recognitions for the schools.
As part of the campaign, students were asked to create artistic and literary works around the subject of acoustics ("The sounds of my school"). As many as 175 students from all over Poland participated in the competition. Thanks to their work you can see how noise is experienced through the eyes of children. All the submitted competition entries are characterized by great creativity and show the emotions associated with the noise in schools. Most of them are linked to negative or uncomfortable feelings.
'The Sounds of My School'
The best and most creative expressions turned out to be the work of students from primary schools in Sulechów, Słupca and Błaszki – small towns with several thousand inhabitants. As a reward for their participation, Rockfon specialists carried out noise measurements and offer their support with recommendations and implementation of acoustic solutions in the classrooms.
Additionally, distinguished students from other schools in Pleszew, Piława Dolna, Leipzig, Szydłów, Pielgrzymowice, Połczyn-Zdrój and Wrocław also were rewarded for their participation. For their schools, Rockfon has given professional, noise-based advice for the use of high-quality acoustic solutions. We will see the effect of the acoustic modernization thanks to the “Sounds of my School” competition in September when everyone returns back to school.
