Thirty-seven percent of Poles plan to buy a present for schoolchildren to mark the end of the school year in what appears to be a new trend in Poland, according to Wednesday's edition of the daily Rzeczpospolita. Fifty-six percent of Polish parents of school-aged children and 19 percent of their acquaintances or family members are thinking about rewarding schoolchildren ending the school year. Parents reportedly consider such a gift compensation for the pressure children cope with during the school year. According to the paper, the average planned cost of a present is approximately 640 zlotys (EUR 150), while 7 percent of respondents intend to spend over 2,000 zlotys.
