Graduates of 2030 start school

03 February 2019 | Education

In a popular children's tale, a hungry little caterpillar eats everything in its path and finally turns into a beautiful butterfly. This story was slightly modified for the enrolment ceremony of the new grade 1 learners at the DHPS: The caterpillar devours letters and numbers – including the alphabet! – until it turns into a colourful, clever butterfly.

Just like the caterpillar, the 87 grade 1s who celebrated their first day at school with great excitement and anticipation, were filled with curiosity about new things. Equipped with bright school cones and accompanied by equally excited parents, siblings, grandparents and godparents, they gathered in the school auditorium.

DHPS principal Kristin Eichholz and the head of the primary section, Conni Hecht, welcomed the new learners who will be the DHPS graduates of 2030. Thereafter the grade 3 learners introduced the newcomers to the school anthem, while grade 2s presented the letters A, E, I,O and U by means of two songs.

Finally, the class allocation was announced and the learners were introduced to the respective class teachers: Svea Oestlund, Martina Horn, Valerie van Zyl and Verena Smith, and of course to their classmates.

Following the DHPS tradition, the grade 12s took the youngest by the hand and accompanied them to their classroom at the Kreutzberger building.
