Krakow Review

14.04.2024. We were guests in Krakow between 8 and 12 April 2024 and worked with pupils and teachers from our Polish partner school ZSEL No1 as part of a joint project week entitled "Together against Racism". We focussed on the forms, foundations, concepts and challenges of Racism and Anti-Semitism - with reference to the German-Polish past (including the "perpetrator people" and "victim people" under National Socialism). In addition, we have developed possible courses of action and ideas against Racism and Anti-Semitism. - See also:

We are currently making a video about this project week. More here soon 😉

Visiting Athens

06.12.2023. Between 06 and 10 November we were guests in Athens. At the birthplace of democracy, the aim was to explore the basic understanding of popular rule and compare it with the forms of democracy currently practised in Europe (Erasmus+ project: 2022-1-DE03-KA121-SCH-000054131). This made the pupils realise that concepts of equality, justice and freedom have changed considerably over time and have developed differently in different cultures.
Together with pupils from the 1st Model High School in Athens, we explored the future of democracy (Erasmus+ project: 2023-1-DE03-KA121-SCH-000126926). The presentations showed that prosperity and quality of life worldwide depend heavily on the role and implementation of democratic values. In joint activities and endeavours, we adopted a European, solidary and diverse perspective and established that where the rule of law is guaranteed and human rights are consistently respected, opportunities for the future are secure.

Event “Rule of Law in Europe”

23.09.2023. Yesterday, the advanced course 3WIR1b, led by Ms Hoffmann and accompanied by Mr Ehlert and Mr Schmitt, took part in the event "Learning European - How to strengthen justice and freedom in the EU: Symposium 'Rule of Law in Europe'" in the House of Parliament in Bremen.
After a welcoming speech by EU Commissioner Didier Reynders and a keynote speech by Prof. Dr. Funda Tekin on the topic of "Efficiency of EU instruments to strengthen the rule of law", we were also able to play the new simulation game "Democracy under pressure" by planpolitik. A successful day all round!

Ireland Project Trip

Ireland Project Trip to Dublin from 13.06. - 17.06.2023
LK 2Eng2a

After an eventful journey by train, plane, bus and finally a 2.8 km walk in sunshine and 27 degrees in the shade, we arrived at Destiny Student New Mill, our accommodation in The Liberties district in the Irish capital Dublin.
On Wednesday, 14 June 2023, we went straight to the National College of Ireland, NCI, where we were first given a guided tour of the campus to gain an insight into the structure of an Irish college and the basic study options in Ireland and in particular at the NCI. Afterwards, the vice-principal of the college personally gave a lecture on the importance of the Irish Celtic Language, in which NCI students also took part. The morning was rounded off by a round of communication and games between our students and the college students, who came from different countries. Our visit ended with a round of fresh delicious pizza donated by the college and lively conversations. Following on from the historical and cultural information on Ireland in the NCI, we, the teaching staff together with our students, went on a walk through north Dublin to visit memorials of the Great Famine and the uprisings that eventually led to the establishment of the Republic of Ireland.
On Thursday 15/06/2013 we went to our second partner college, Griffith College Dublin. While the NCI focuses on business and computer technology, here we were introduced to the world of music and medical design. Here, too, we came into contact with an Irish student who, among other things, informed us about the accommodation options, campus life and career opportunities in Dublin and Europe. The day was rounded off with impressions of St. Patrick's Cathedral and the role of the Catholic and Anglican Church in Ireland, yesterday and today.
On Friday, 16.06.23, small groups had the opportunity to visit the National Museum of Ireland, the National Gallery and Christchurch Cathedral. The day ended with a dinner organised by the students. Many thanks for that!!!!!

After a 12-hour return journey, we finally arrived in Bremerhaven around 9.30 pm, tired but in good spirits and still full of impressions of the vibrant, hospitable and impressive city on the River Liffey.
The trip was prepared in class, among other things the students prepared interviews for the college visits, which were used at the college events. We are expecting the return visit from the Irish side in January.

Of course, all students at our school should have the opportunity to eventually study at one of the two colleges. I am the contact person for this, Heidrun Pargmann. In addition, information events with the Irish professors and possibly students are planned for all students at our school in January.

Conclusion of the project trip after feedback discussions in the LK: Impressive impressions, interesting possibilities after the Abitur or the Fachhochschulreife, a friendly country full of music and mystical culture, a touching hospitality by the directors of the colleges, to whom our personal thanks go. At this point, we would also like to mention the excellent social behaviour and the willingness of the entire English class to actively participate in the trip. At this point, we would also like to thank Gaby Basse for her friendly and helpful support during the entire trip.

On behalf of all participants, we leave with some ideas for the continuation of the college partnerships and the cooperation with our neighbouring school, the BST Bremerhaven.

Kind regards from Kraków

13.06.2023. Kind regards from Kraków! We are on site between 12 and 16 June 2023. We work with pupils and teachers from our Polish partner school ZSEL No. 1 as part of a joint project week entitled "Learning from the past for the future".
We examine selected stages of the German-Polish past and present and work out possible courses of action for the common future.

More soon at!


16.10.2022. We have worked here on site within the framework of a strategic school partnership with five European partner schools on selected issues regarding the basic principles of the project schools in the sense of a democratic school as well as the rights, duties and tasks of those involved in school life. As a final project result, a common constitutional order of a "school with a democratic school culture" was created.
We had a wonderful time in Thessaloniki and visited friends from Madeira (Portugal), Torbali (Turkey) and Viterbo (Italy)!
Now we are about to create a small magazine and the final report before we will start more projects! 🙂
