HERMANNSBURG Primary School pupils took time last Wednesday, before heading off for the mid-term break, to take a walk in their beautiful surroundings — around the dam and in the forests, where they measured trees and collected litter as part of the project work for the day. Earlier during the week, the brass band and choir performed the works they had presented at the East Griqualand Encounter, impressing their peers and the parents who attended. We are proud of our musicians and their teachers.

Meanwhile, Schools: Partners of the Future — otherwise known as “PASCH” — is an initiative of the German Federal Foreign Office, launched in 2008 to link 1 800 schools worldwide that have an interest in German and offer the German language diploma, as Hermannsburg does.

Through PASCH, the German language teachers have had access to training and teaching resources and pupils can participate in competitions and cultural exchanges that strengthen their abilities in German.

The primary school science laboratory was financed in part through funds made available via PASCH. To celebrate 10 years of PASCH, all the partner schools across the globe released balloons — three biodegradable balloons per class recently.

Attached to each set of balloons is a postcard which, if found and returned to the address on the postcard, could result in a prize being awarded to the originating school.

We are deeply saddened by the passing of June Litterick, editor of the Greytown Gazette — our thoughts go out to her family and friends, as well as to her colleagues. June’s unwavering dedication to her task as editor was an example to us all and we shall miss her! We wish the staff of the Greytown Gazette strength and fortitude, and look forward to continuing the good relationship.
