Im November 2017 nahmen erstmalig 19 Schülerinnen und Schüler der Jahrgangsstufe 12 am Englisch-Wettbewerb Go4Goal teil.

Visit to the Embassy of Canada

Last year our class participated in the Bundeswettbewerb Fremdsprachen. For a short film on our visions of the future we won a prize: an invitation to the Canadian Embassy.

The embassy is located in the city centre. It was easy to find because in front of the building there were flags with a red maple leaf which showed us the way. We arrived at about 10 AM and went straight through a security check where they looked through our bags and ...

Voice Recordings in English for the New App about the Rummelsburg Memorial Site

In April 2015 four of our Year 11 students had the opportunity to cooperate with the Rummelsburg Memorial Site in Lichtenberg.

In this app the developers wanted to include a guided tour around the former prison specifically ...

Townhall-Meeting mit US-Botschafter J.B. Emerson

Am Dienstag, den 10. März 2015, bekamen wir wieder einmal hohen Besuch an unserer Schule: Der Bundestagsabgeordnete der CDU Dr. Martin Pätzold hatte organisiert, dass der US-Botschafter John B. Emerson zu einem sogenannten „Townhall Meeting“, einer Art offenen Fragerunde, an unsere Schule kam. Emerson hatte das Amt des US Botschafters 2013 auf dem Höhepunkt des NSA-Skandals übernommen, so dass sich Fragen und Positionen über die deutsch-amerikanischen Beziehungen im Besonderen und die weltpolitische Lage im Allgemeinen wie von selbst ergaben.
