Study Trip to Germany

Lots of greetings have been sent by our students of grade 10 and 11 from Germany. The group is visiting many interesting places especially in Jena and Leipzig together with their two teachers Babette Theil and Stefanie Decker. The two week program is very dense but the photos show that everybody is enjoying the trip although it is really cold in Germany at the moment. The group is not only visiting universities but also company where one could carry out a dual education. We wish all of you another few interesting days and are looking forward to your stories after your return.

Stick Bread Festival

For several years the stick bread festival has been celebrated together with all the families of the primary school. We only need dough, a large fire and many carved sticks. After singing songs, the children bake their bread over the fire. Then there is a big buffet which has been prepared by all parents and we all sit together around the warming. We would like to thank all organizers and especially the parents for their support and preparation for the festival.

Inauguration School Bus

Just after the assembly for the start of the second term, the new school bus was inaugurated. Mr. Weisser, deputy head of school, blessed the new bus with lots of sparkling Ambo water just before the bus went on its first mission to take all students up to Yeka-Mountain where they went hiking. 

Carnival

Every year, the Kindergarten and school celebrate carnival with fantastic costumes, funny games, a not so healthy breakfast and a wild party all over the school compound. At some point during the morning, you can see the dressed up elementary school children doing the traditional Polonaise dance on the school compound. 

Holocaust Memorial Day

Every year on January 26th, the UN is officially celebrating the Holocaust Memorial Day. Our students of grade 9 to 11 have been invited to take part in the ceremony at UNECA. Focuses of this year’s memorial were diplomats who have protested against the persecution of Jews by the National Socialists through hiding Jews or helping them to escape. Representatives of eight different countries presented videos of saviours who are these days honoured as “Righteous among the Nations" by Israel. 

First Aid Classes

Our new school nurse Ms. Lydia Stockmanns has offered a total of three first aid classes for teachers and staff. The course was highly appreciated by everybody. It is very important to refresh one’s own first aid knowledge on a yearly basis since in emergencies fast help cannot always be guaranteed in Ethiopia. Ms. Stockmanns will also offer first aid classes for students in higher grades in the near future. 

International Sports Festival

At the sports ground of the international school the track and field competition of the ICS took place this year again. A group of students from DBSAA decided to take the chance to compete with the other schools and show their athletics skills. They had trained weeks in advance and it should pay out. Even though quite a few students got sick the last minute, our team was able to reach some great results. Congratulations to all of them!

Hiking Day Primary School

Traditionally all students go on a hiking day on the last day of the first school term. Also this year, we were very lucky with good weather and all kids and teachers had lots of fun on the Yeka-Mountain in Kebena.
