Open Day 2016


Thank you to all the students and teachers for putting together a great open day last week!

The morning started with coffee, pretzels, home-baked goodies, and tours of the classrooms. Magdalena welcomed all to the hall and gave some updates to our academic achievements and community involvement.

The focus then turned to the opportunities afforded to our secondary students who persevere in their German studies. One of our teachers and former recipient of a SAGSE scholarship, Cassandra Nolan, recounted a great story about her time in Germany including how she learned to use “moin moin” in conversation and how amused the local families were to find that she had come to learn Plattdeutsch. Martin Schlegel, president of Scholarships for Australian-German Student Exchange Inc. then gave an overview of the program and made a strong case for students to study hard at the GSS before looking for opportunities to live in Germany as Cass did.

The main event saw the songs, interviews, skits, and movies from our students. (Come back soon to see the movie that Cassandra’s class created for the Goethe Institut German School Film Project). To close the event, Hannah and Anton, winners of the state poetry recitation competition at Year 9 and Lower Secondary levels respectively, recited their poems for the audience.

Well done, everyone!
