Project Day "Ethiopian New Year"
This year the project day for the Ethiopian New Year has been a huge success and we would like to thank all parents for their participation. The students were able to choose from a large variety of activities ranging from weaving, dancing, cooking, crafting to grinding cereals and spices and a leather and paper workshop. Afterwards, the students presented their projects and we closed the day with dancing and a delicious Ethiopian buffet.
Week of Climate Change
The international week of climate change to place on September 12-18 and embassies around the world highlighted different actions to protect the climate. Students of grade 9 of the German Embassy School were invited together with students of the German Church School to take part in a workshop at Goethe Institute in order to think about climate change. Together with Ethiopian artists they expressed their thoughts about climate protection in posters and different art objects.
First Aid Class/Farewell to Angelika
Before our dear nurse Angelika is heading back home, she carried out another first aid class for all teachers and staff. The participants could proof their knowledge at different activity stations or update it, after a short theory lessons. Everybody had a good time and learned a lot. We would like to sincerely thank Angelika for five years of great work at the German Embassy School: she was not just the school nurse, but more over consoler for all students, sometimes substitute teacher and a really great colleague! We wish her all the best for the time back home!
The welcoming celebration for all new first graders took place on Wednesday, August 24th. All new students were taken by Mrs. Biegel, head of school, and Mrs. Gering, form teacher, from the kindergarten to the gym where the celebration took place. The older students prepared a great program and the theatre group showed again lots of talent and proved that pirates also want to learn reading. Mrs. Biegel and Mrs. Gering welcomed the students warmly at the primary school.
