Първо място в Национална олимпиада по творческо писане на есе на англйски език за Бистра от 8“в“ клас
Пореден голям успех за ученик от ГСАГД “Кольо Фичето“. Бистра Маринова Христова от 8“в“ клас смълча конкуренцията в ЧЕТВЪРТАТА НАЦИОНАЛНА ОЛИМПИАДА ЗА ТВОРЧЕСКО ПИСАНЕ НА ЕСЕ на БЪЛГАРСКИ, АНГЛИЙСКИ или ИСПАНСКИ ЕЗИК „PICTA SCRIPTA“ 2022 г.
Бистра действително регистрира колосален успех ,не само за нашето училище ,но и за Ямбол като град. Конкуренцията в „PICTA SCRIPTA“ е убийствена ,при това Бистра е вероятно сред най-малките участници, защото в конкурса възрастовата група е от 8-ми до 12-ти клас, но есето и „The power of dictatorship“ убеждава изключително авторитетното жури, съставено от университетски преподаватели да и присъди първото място. Самият формат на Олимпиадата „„PICTA SCRIPTA“ е много нетрадиционен-творческото писане на есе е по зададено от организаторите изображение. Така че в случая имаме високоинтелектуална и творческа дейност ,която изисква умение да се четат знаци, да се осмислят образите и символите, да се тълкува подреждането им в пространството. Развиването на уменията за анализ, тълкуване, откриване на връзки, синтез, създаване на текстове са ключови за представянето в тази Олимпиадата.
Успех в „PICTA SCRIPTA“ постигат само мислещи и пишещи личности, които са способни да виждат и четат знаци; да покажат оригиналност и дълбочина на интерпретацията. Така че „PICTA SCRIPTA“ е единствен по рода си конкурс за ученици в България.
Показаното от осмокласничката ни Бистра говори красноречиво за нейния потенциал. Гордеем се с нея и и желаем да продължава да покорява върховете!

The power of dictatorship
When we are brought into the world, the only thing we know what to do from the start is to pick up information, interpret it, and then learn. All else happens afterwards – learning to talk, walk, study, work. To create a family and continue working until we die. Therefore, the only real gift the human brain has is to absorb the knowledge given to it. From where, however, do we receive that knowledge? From our parents, our families. From our schools, or the news. All that work for, or answer to, the government. The people in control, the people we may never really see or get to know, but the people who know us well. Too well as a matter of fact, because they know more about us than we will ever realise. It might sound frightening stated that way. But haven’t we all accepted that? Yet, when it’s mentioned, a certain fear arises. A fear that shows we still know this isn’t normal. A fear that may prevent it from being normalised in the future. Although, even now, would it really affect us if the people in power decided to change a simple piece of fundamental knowledge we have, twist it slightly and place it back into our heads? As we live in a constantly changing environment, I don’t think it’s even that hard to manipulate the information we receive from the outside world to the needs of the authority.
2x2=5. You’re reading this, knowing it’s untrue. Because we’ve been taught that the answer is actually 4. But what about if we were born into a world where right from the start, from the time we were conscious of our existence, we were told it was 5? We’d never know differently, we’d never question that piece of information. It is easier than we would ever let ourselves believe for the government to alter the things we “know” and turn them into things we thought we knew. That is because truth is subjective. Each person thinks of the truth differently, so the people in power are able to use that and create their own truth, forcing the population to blindly believe anything placed in their hands as “correct information”. What we need to hang on to strongly is our freedom of expression. I don’t think there ever comes a time at which we stop to think about what it means to openly say what you think without worrying about the consequences. It is one of the things we should be most grateful for seeing as even today there are people who don’t have that privilege. Even though it shouldn’t be a privilege, because it is a basic human right, the wars going on and the determination of keeping the public on a need-to-know basis makes me think of it as such. We are never given full enlightenment of the events happening (which is somewhat understandable – not all actions taken by the authorities should be common knowledge amongst the public). However, that means we can’t accurately form an opinion of any new piece of news. It all depends on the way it is altered and presented to us.
“He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.” – George Orwell, “1984”. This quote could be applied not only to the dystopian world of 1984 but to the entirety of human history — history being, as we know, a subjective narrative crafted by those privileged enough to write it. And in writing it, having the ability to change whatever, whenever it suits them. Labelling things we know as truth as false and suggesting a different truth may go unnoticed at first. People may brush it off as a mistake they made in their heads whilst continuing about their day. If things escalate to a larger scale and we are told that 2x2=5, how would we be certain that that isn’t just another thing we “messed up” in our heads? And what if when we were to reach for maths textbooks to prove our point we saw that the numbers written on the page weren’t backing us up, but doing quite the opposite? How many of us would call ourselves crazy and how many would take a stand against the seemingly irrefutable facts, looking for an explanation for the absurdity?
The protestors shown in the picture are clearly of the latter kind. Despite the fear in their faces and the decidedness with which the government is trying to sway them into believing а false truth, they have decided to stick to what they know is true. I doubt the police officers are sure of what they are being told either. Although they are the ones enforcing the punishment and turning against their fellow citizens, it is in an effort to not turn into the victims themselves.
It is difficult separating wrong from right, especially when we don’t have facts to lean against. It is a topic discussed over centuries, brought up again and again in different pieces of literature. It does show that because we are discussing that topic, we aim to do what’s right. I believe that each person has their own way of deciphering which is which. But those ways may also need facts to lean against, so the real question becomes: how do we know if something is fact or not? That’s the thing - we don’t. We only have the information presented to us, and we don’t know how much of that is fact. All we can do is keep doing the only thing that comes naturally to us – learning, and hope that one day, we will know enough to make out even a vague image of what is true, and what is false.
The picture shown represents events occurring daily, though none are as obvious or apparent. They repeat themselves so frequently, that we have grown accustomed to seeing them in the news without giving them a second thought. There may come a day, I am afraid, when we won’t even recognise it as a new piece of news, but rather an occurrence we are used to witnessing.
