A decade of PASCH

12 November 2018 | Education

Students and teachers from different PASCH (Partners for the Future) schools in Namibia recently met in Windhoek to celebrate ten years of the program as well as the German language in the country.

PASCH is an international educational cooperation between schools established by German president Dr Frank-Walter Steinmeier that aims to build a worldwide network of partner schools to awaken young people’s interest and enthusiasm for modern-day Germany.

Following the inclusion of Etosha Secondary School earlier this year, eight Namibian schools are part of the 2000 schools worldwide that are PASCH partners.

To honour the anniversary, students from local PASCH schools met in the Delta Secondary School to celebrate and to share their experiences of the program.

During the two-hour programme, the students showcased their talents that included playing the national anthems of Namibia and Germany as rock covers or presenting German songs (Delta Secondary School), while some students provided an overview of their participation in the PASCH program (Martin Luther High School), performed self-composed German poetry (Windhoek High School and Otjiwarongo Secondary School) or comedy acts (Namib High School).

At the event, Ellen Gölz, deputy head of mission of the German embassy, said that the expansion of the PASCH-Network here shows the increasing popularity and demand for German as a foreign language in Namibia. She also congratulated the young people on their enthusiasm and hard work displayed on stage.
