6 new scholarship students join the German School Nairobi on the 12th of January 2012

Date 03/02/2012

This year too, it was 6 young Kenyans, who successfully completed the requirements of our academic scholarship, and were welcomed to the school on the 12th of January. The 9 - 10 year old students, (4 girls and 2 boys), along with their parents attended the welcoming ceremony in Gymnastics Room of the school, befittingly decorated for the occasion. It was here that they were welcomed both to the school and to a new chapter of their lives.

 

After a few words of welcome from the Acting Headmaster Mr Baur, students of Class 4 greeted their new classmates with a serenade. Each new scholarship student received some flowers from their respective partner students. Each of the "older" students promised to help the new ones to settle down quickly.

Three of the new students should have no problems in settling down: Megan, Chrystal and Karen already have siblings in the school! But we hope that Rahim, Prudence and Grace will also feel at home with us very quickly. However, there is a big hurdle that needs to be crossed before then: by the end of the academic year, they must intensively learn German! The two most important people for these new students, the Foreign Language German teachers also introduced themselves:  Ms Rode and Ms Stegen. Immediately after the ceremony, the students joined them for their first lesson!

The "new" parents took this opportunity to mingle over coffee and cake in the cafeteria, to get to know each other, other parents, parent representatives and teachers better.

Once again, we wish all our new scholarship students the best of luck and every success in the school!
