The school choir has existed for many years. It is the three voice girls choir a`capella, though in the past boys used to sing there too.
They sing anthems, hymns, folk and traditional songs as well as songs for the young. The choir has been conducted among the others by Mr Skrzecz, Mr Jan Kubicki and since 1972, with a short break, MA Danuta Baranowska has been conducting it.
The choir had the honour to sing for The President Ryszard Kaczorowski in October 2000. In February 2001, during the Christmas meeting in the Porczyński Gallery in Warsaw, the choir sang carols.
In June 2001 together with Victoria Orchestra and its vocalists, the choir sang in the Congress Hall of the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw.
The choir sings at school and outside, adding splendour to all ceremonies. For several years it has been taking part in The Festival of Polish Culture in Vilnus.

Gaude, Mater Polonia,
Prole fecunda nobili,
Summi Regis magnalia
Laude frequenta vigili.
