visit to MELA- an agricultural exibition
60 primary school children went to the exhibition of agriculture,
food, fishing, forest and gardening
the students started for the day excursion at eight in the morning.
They went to Mela by bus. After arriving there they first went round
the exhibition. During their walk they got a lot of information that
could be used for a quiz afterwards. They learned about ecological
agriculture and gardening.
main important question is: Where do all the products come from?
Everybody should buy regionally produced food which saves energy for
transport and is good for the environment.
they learned about energy saving and energy production in
agriculture. Many farmers use solar energy panels for energy supply.
There are more and more farms that produce energy from liquid manure.
The most important fact is that they try to use renewable resources.
pollution of the environment during the last decades was a result of
the use of fertilizers which were often poisonous. There is a real
change today because the customers force the farmers.
their visit the primary school students learned more about dairy
farming. They were also informed about the problems of milk
production. Too many people want to buy cheap milk products and that
makes it hard for the farmers. They also learned how important it is
to treat the resources more carefully which means not to waste food.
the little steps help.
was a fantastic day for all the kids , learning about farming outside

woods around us are such a place. Many years ago the parents and
grandparents of today’s schoolkids used to play in nature around
the towns and villages. Today it is not so common to spend freetime
outside and many children don’t know how to behave when they go
into the wood. It is not only a playground, it is the home of many
Thursday, 20th July 2017, 28 students went to “Letschower Wald”
with their teacher and some parents. When they arrived they met the
forester. They started with a quiz about wild animals. The adults
were surprised about the knowledge of the young students. Lots of them
have pets at home and know how to care for them. Then they learned
how to “read” animal traces. They got a lot of information about
wildlife and the ecosystem wood and collected ideas about how they
can support this system. Cleaning Schwaan and the woods around is one
step in that direction.

Workshop-from waste to
9th May, 16th
May, 23rd May, 13th June 2017
Presentation: 24th June 2017
Everybody likes fashion and fashion shows. But fashion
is not only nice, it creates a lot of waste, when people buy new clothes very
So why not make fashion out of old materials like old
clothes and even waste!
The main idea was to combine two important things-do
something against careless treatment of our environment and creating fashion
without buying new material.
Our school had started a city cleaning action before on
28th April 2017 which was very successful.
We - seventeen students of grades 7-10 - started
sorting the bags to see what we could use for our fashion show, it was a lot!
Then we started to make new things out of old ones. We met in the afternoons ,
discussed our ideas and started the “production”. It was amazing to see the
results. After four workshops we finished our work and were ready for a waste
After presenting our fashion in front of some school
classes we went to a central meeting of students representatives in Güstrow.
There we showed the participants how we do something against climate change and
for our environment.

A visit to „Wildtierpark Güstrow“ on 30th May 2017
Many children like to have pets at home. They have to
learn very early that animals are not toys, so they have to know a lot about animal
During the visit in Güstrow about 40 schoolkids of
grade 2 learned how to help to protect nature and environment and how to care
for living creatures.
First they learned about how wild animals became
domestic animals. During their walk through the park they could watch wild
animals like wolves in a nature-like surrounding. They learned that every
creature has its place in nature and that it is important for the balance to
care for a natural environment.
After the walk the students participated in a nature quiz
and showed that they learned a lot. They could also ask all their questions

Raised plant boxes in our school garden area
Gardening club every Tuesday
project for our primary kids could be started. The students of our handicraft
work group want to build two different plant boxes for our school garden area.
The primary teachers have the wish to illustrate the children the growths of
vegetable and herbs. They are also want to show the process of composting. To
reach these aims the work group has to construct boxes with an acrylic glass
front. The first steps are done. The wood could be bought and the students put
the parts together. We will see how it goes on.

Students learn a lot about technology and environment
at school from teachers and schoolbooks. How does all that work in reality and
what does it cost? That is important. At the age of 14 or 15 it is also
important to get ready for future life. That means choosing a job training and decide for a place to live.
We have learned a lot about mobility. How can we get to work one day and what
does that cost. How can we get from one place to another. Some of us will live
far away from friends and family so the question is very important.
So we - class 9a - decided to visit the Center of future Mobility
in Dresden. We went on a class trip, so we didn’t need extra money for
We could learn a lot about modern car technologies.
The interactive models were a lot of fun. We could touch and experience car
models. One example is the full size glass frame model of the e-Golf. Now we
know that car technology has a short history and the next step is not too far.
Some of us will work in car industry one day.
The main thing we realized is that you don’t need to
compromise between enjoying driving and environment when you decide for an

A nice environment also helps to feel good and
have fun to work in a team
Workshop on 3rd May 2017
6graders made an interesting class trip to the south west of Mecklenbourg. They
spent most of the time outside and made different workshops. On one day they
especially worked to the project: “Stop climate change”. Their idea was to
build a wooden raft. In preparation to the project they were informed about
different kinds of wood and other materials which can be used from our nature.
Then the students formed groups and made construction plans. The instructor
gave some help to get the rafts swimming. Then after some hours hard work the
time came to try the rafts in the lake. The students were very excited.
Although the water was still very cold, all students wanted to test their raft
and climbed on it. Look into all the happy faces! It worked! What a nice
example for living in a healthy nature.
