Interesting and individual - despite the distance
DHPS Expo 2021
11 March 2021 | Education
The Deutsche Höhere Privatschule Windhoek (DHPS) mastered this challenge brilliantly during its DHPS Expo and Open Day last Saturday.
Individual tours were offered to parents, future learners and interested parties to show them areas of the school that were of interest to them. In small groups, visitors could gain an insight into the diversity of this German school abroad, be it the primary section or the German International Abitur, the new science laboratories, the kindergarten or the boarding school.
Members of the school management devoted plenty of time for individual conversations with their visitors, while DHPS teachers used the Expo to work on the future virtual presentation of their subjects, grades and areas.
Of course, a school lives through its learners, yet the DHPS staff did a wonderful job implementing this day under special conditions and at a distance. The new format of interest-based school tours was a great success.
“We are delighted by the interested visitors,” said DHPS Principal, Kristin Eichholz. “This was an opportunity to show new families the wide range of services offered by DHPS. Even parents whose children are already attending our school were impressed by the newly renovated science rooms and the gym, which after all, were built with their school funds for the benefit of their children,” she said.
“Of course, a school without learners doesn't present the complete picture, but this format provided the platform for in-depth discussions with interested parents.”
The DHPS thanks all teachers, visitors and parents for a wonderful day at the school while observing all the necessary hygiene and distance rules, which unfortunately still apply at the moment.
