English Project Week 5ABC

In the week from Monday February 4th to Friday February 8th we had the pleasure of improving our English with four native speakers from all over the world. Shannon and Connor from Ireland, Jonathan from Australia and Toby from England were our English teachers for the week. All the students of the fifth forms were split up into mixed groups.

English Writing Competition

English Writing Competition

Wie schon im vergangenen Schuljahr fand auch heuer wieder ein Schreibwettbewerb in englischer Sprache für die 2. Klassen statt, diesmal am 24. Mai 2018. Ohne gezielte Vorbereitung sollten die SchülerInnen und Schüler spontan eine Geschichte verfassen, die nicht nur mit Originalität und Kreativität überzeugen sollte, sondern auch mit sprachlicher Kompetenz. Die Aufgabe dieses Jahr war es, einen besonders aufregenden Traum wiederzugeben.

The 6B in Brighton

On March 9th we and our teachers Mag.a Christine Koller and Mag. Johann Piniel took a flight to London Gatwick Airport. After a bus ride to Hove we arrived at the LSI, our language school, where we got a few instructions. Afterwards, we were picked up by our host parents. The first dinner at our host families was a completely new experience. Unfortunately, no more activities were possible on Friday because of the bad weather.

Eine Woche nur Englisch in den 5. Klassen

Ja, das ist möglich. In der letzten Woche des ersten Semesters kamen die 5. Klassen in den Genuss von 29 Englischstunden in Form eines 5-tägigen Workshops mit Native Speakers. Die Schüler und SchülerInnen hatten viel Spaß bei den Aktivitäten, die inhaltlich von Landeskunde bis zu Sport reichten. Natürlich sollte nicht alles hinter verschlossenen Türen stattfinden. Daher gab es am Ende eine Präsentation der geleisteten Arbeit mit den Schülern und Schülerinnen der 4. Klassen als interessiertes Publikum.

Dún Laoghaire, here we come!

Thursday, March 8th

After a very tiring flight and two exhausting bus rides the students and teachers of classes 6A and 6C finally arrived in Dún Laoghaire, a town near the city centre of Dublin. They were greeted by the beautiful view of the Irish Sea on a sunny, almost cloudless day.

After being picked up by their host families, who the students had excitedly been waiting for, the day was almost over and not filled with many activities.

The 7C’s project week in Brighton – stunning!

Despite the bad weather we – 16 students and our teachers Mag.a Susanne Huber and Mag. Ernst Filz – could fortunately start our journey to Brighton on March 2nd 2018 at half past nine am in Oberpullendorf. After a bus ride to Schwechat and a short delay, our plane took off at one o’clock pm and we arrived at almost four o’clock at LSI, our language school, in Hove. There we got some information about the school and our host families, who welcomed us tremendously graciously. Luckily, the majority of us had a delicious supper, cooked by their landladies, after this rather stressful day. Afterwards, some classmates went to the shore to see the pebbles and the waves. I think everybody was impressed by the great architecture in Brighton (“Regency terrace”), especially by the lovely terraced houses and the typical bay windows.
