Poles mark 100 years of independence
A large number of people took part in celebrations to mark 100 years of Polish independence on Saturday.
A march took place in the city beginning from Cathedral Square at 4pm.
Moreover, pupils at Peterborough’s Polish Saturday School celebrated the day by re-enacting the events leading up to the partition of Poland in 1795 and the events leading up to regaining independence in 1918.
A total of 220 pupils ranging in age from 10 to 18 were involved at St John Fisher School in Park Lane, and the event finished with a rousing rendition of the Polish national anthem. Headteacher Magdalena Sobkowicz said: “It was a great privilege to be able to celebrate 100 years of Polish independence together in such a moving way.”
