Sports Day "Nationaler Zukunftstag"

On the 9th November, five of our students (Selina Wyler, Christina Bautista, Lisanne Ideler, Tarik Ganic, and Ramon Schmid) came together to run an English-language sports day for some 20 middle school boys as part of the national "Zukunftstag”. Amongst other things, the organizers had participants playing flag football and solving riddles in English. Organizers were especially impressed by the English skills of participants and the way they worked together so nicely through English. And it was not only the youngsters who learned something about possible choice for the future. As one organizer told us, the experience also gave them a great insight into life as a teacher; in his words, "the day with the kids was confirmation that I am seeking the right career”.
