Secondary School Complex No 3 in Piła was founded as a successor of Roman Kozak's Building School Complex in 2002. The school was inextricably linked with the building and construction industry in Piła. From the very beginning, the school was providing vocational education and training for a number of students who then worked for local contractors and businesses.
The need for qualified workers was so big, that an idea of a company’s school was put forward. The initiative of school association with a private company was taken by Bogdan Toboła, then a director of a local building company. As a result of this, on 1st September 1963, a Vocational School for the company’s employees was founded.
Initially, there were two classes consisting of 40 students. A year later, during the summer holidays of 1964, a secretary’s office and a staff room were adapted to classrooms, to fulfil the school needs and at the turn of 1963 and 1964, there were 5 classroom available.
Students had the opportunity to be taught such professions as electrician or fitter. In June 1965, first graduates left the school- they were trained painters.
In the 60s, the school was gradually increasing in a number of students and facilities. The school celebrated its tenth anniversary in October 1973. However, it was not until 1975 when Roman Kozak's Building School Complex was founded and became the crucial year in the school history.
Initially, the school was delivering evening classes only, however, as a result of an increasing number of students and the level of education, a day school was established. Full-time classes and new curricula were introduced, which in turn, caused an immense interest in school and eventually it's growth. More and more young people were coming to be educated in this institution.
At present, Secondary School Complex no 3. consists of:
- Secondary School
- Secondary Technical School
- Vocational School
