Chancellor - dr Janusz Poła, doc.

studiowDr Janusz Poła was born on 26 April 1957 in Wrocław. The hobbies and interests in sport and team games pursued since childhood have contributed greatly to his whole life and career. His mother, the teacher of Polish, encouraged Janusz`s interest in literature and shaped his humanistic sensitivity. His father, a professional soldier, the Polish Army officer taught him discipline and showed how beneficial doing various sports, keeping fit, having a good contact with nature and its understanding can be for a young boy, thus the expeditions to the forest accompanied by both Janusz`s brother and their father left a lot behind.

For Janusz, the period of school years is closely associated with the unforgettable ambiance of carefreeness, the joy of competition, sports struggles, and his favorite music played from black, vinyl records, the Beatles` songs (so hard to obtain at that time) and those parties… but with sport and handball in the first place.

The choice what to study seemed obvious – University School of Physical Education in Wrocław, the city of amazing atmosphere towards the end of the seventies, cult “Jazz Nad Odrą” festival, the Center of Student Community Culture “Pałacyk” as the meeting place for students from various schools and universities; set texts read between classes, fascination with Latin - American literature, second - hand books, feverish discussions on how to change the world. Anything was possible… Eventually, the defense of the Master’s degree thesis on teaching methods supervised by dr. doc. Bolesław Słupik and becoming a teacher, preceded however by military service at Reserve Officer Cadet School in Elbląg, Morąg and Żagań, accomplished as a platoon officer cadet. The service was hardship. Tanks seem romantic and attractive only in a movie. Moreover, martial law was declared. Today, as second lieutenant of reserve, Janusz recollects comical episodes from the barracks and training ground with a smile on his face, whereas the photos give evidence of unforgettable experiences.

As a Physical Education teacher, Janusz has been closely related to the school at Kościuszki Square in Leszno, whose name was frequently altered ranging from the Secondary School of General Education Center, Teacher Training School, Secondary School of General Education and Pedagogy Center, Teacher Training College to III High School. In each of them, however, his job has been to teach Physical Education. Over time, dr Janusz Poła has linked the function of a teacher with administrative activities, since he became head of specialties at the Teacher Training College or lecturer and deputy head of the Institute of Physical Education at Jan Amos Komeński State School of Higher Vocational Education in Leszno.

Handball is his life passion. In 1988 he was awarded the title of II class coach in this sport. Since 1986, together with Ryszard Kmiecik they have put a lot of effort into establishing the AROT Tęcza club in Leszno. The team, playing in II league, has achieved a lot of successes:

-          the Finals of the Polish Sub Junior Championships in 1997;

-          Championship of Denmark, three years later, in 2000, as junior older;

-          Triple National Championship of the Academic Sports Association. Worth mentioning is the fact that one of the members of the said team was B. Jurecki, a Beijing Olympian, former student of Jan Amos Komeński State School of Higher Vocational Education in Leszno.

Taking up employment at higher education institution Janusz treated a challenge. His academic interests led to attending a PhD seminar conducted by Professor Zbigniew Drozdowski, a great authority as well as a great man. The research into student physical activities was followed by numerous academic articles, participation in conferences, and eventually a PhD dissertation entitled “The state of physical development, fitness and activity of the students of State School of Higher Vocational Education in Leszno” supervised by prof. dr hab. Sławomir Drozdowski, defended in 2008.
