FRIENDS of different languages were welcomed at the Deutscher Tag or German Day on Saturday, to celebrate the German language.
This international Day of the German Language was started in 2001 by the Association of German Language to “create a language awareness and to use foreign words, especially English, to a minimum”.
This year’s celebration at Hermannsburg included not only our school family, but also Deutsche Schule Durban, Domino Servite School and Wartburg-Kirchdorf School, whose pupils entertained visitors with song, dance and poetry.
The Goethe Institute invited visitors to participate in the Autobahnspiel - an informative, interactive station-based game that provides impressions and facts about German-speaking countries, their cultures and their products. German cakes and baked goods were brought by the KwaSizabantu bakery, and visitors could enjoy one of their famous brezel with their tea and coffee.
Thank you to all who helped to make this day a success, particularly Mrs Birgit Eggers and our school’s German Department for the organisation and the Grade 9 class, and Mrs “Koekoe” Olivier and Mrs Juanita Ortmann for the lunch.

Characters from all genres and times were intermingled last Friday as the high school celebrated Book Week and the pupils came dressed as their favourite characters from novels, in any language of their choice - it was a colourful day with lots of fun guessing who was who.

In sports news, the primary school boys have been active on the hockey field again - early last week the U9s played Wembley College (2-4) and Wartburg-Kirchdorf (1-1) and the U10s played Wembley (0-5) and Wartburg (1-2).
The U13s drew both their matches against Wembley and Wartburg 0-0.
On the weekend, the U10 boys played well in the cold and wet against Wembley (0-2) and Treverton (1-2) while the U13s played Wembley (1-3) and Atholl Heights Primary School (0-3).
Our high school soccer boys played Wembley (0-1), Greytown High School (0-3) and Wartburg (0-3).
