Monday August 24th was a very special day for the first graders of the German Primary Section: they had their very first day of school.
After a warm welcome speech by our Head Principal, Mr Puttock, it was time for our smallest guests to start into their new life as school children of German Klasse 1. The first day of school is something very special in Germany. Children create a Schultüte together with their parents which is then filled with little surprises. As every year, we also met together at the last day of the holidays to create such a Schultüte together with the parents and the children.
During the festivity the little students learned with Ms Dünnebier and Bibu- bear, the class-teddy of GK1, how pupils in Germany looked on their first days of school within the last 100 years.
As additional act, our students from GK2, GK 3 and GK4 prepared songs to show how much fun school can be. We finished the ceremony with GK1 on stage, where they met their buddies of GK2, Bibu-bear, and, of course, their new class-teacher, Ms Brück. Finally, our grade 1 students left to have a first glimpse in their new classroom.
