ESRM had 3 teams in the competition with the ‘B’ team narrowly missing out on the quarter finals, and the ‘A’ team finally losing in the semifinals. A nail-biting quarter final for the ‘A’ team ensured a win against Hamburg, with 5 wickets being taken for no runs in the last two overs. Although not champions, ESRM were awarded the ‘Spirit of Cricket’ award for the teams attitude to cricket, and always playing in the spirt of the game. Well done to Yashas, Sophie and Maxi for successfully captaining the three teams. We thank the DCB (German Cricket Bund) for being joint partners in organizing this event, and we look forward to the next tournament in Stuttgart in January.
We are very proud of our students!
True to our tradition: On Thursday last week our school´s Culture Committee met to present and discuss the different aspects of the cultural work at school. The committee is formed by students’ representatives, management, select staff and the parent’s association. Together we looked at the school´s achievement in the Art and Music departments in Primary and Secondary. Also, we saw an overview of the big variety in the new European Hours curriculum for the Primary School. Mrs. Wenzel introduced the new formation of the Parents' Association. We congratulate Mrs. Wiebols on the presidency and thank Mrs. Wenzel for everything she has done for our school, in her time as head of the parents´ association.
(Emoji Französische Flagge) Attention French community: We are looking to strengthen our French department and our affiliation to the language and country. If you speak French, or have roots/interests in the culture, please do get in contact with the school’s management!
Vielen Dank an alle, die diesen schönen Abend möglich gemacht haben: Der rosa Himmel, der Mond der auf die Schule leuchtete und die strahlenden Gesichter der tanzenden Kinder mit ihren zahlreichen Lichtern. Ein voller Erfolg und ein weiteres Stück Normalität für unsere Pre-Primary Schüler.
Cricket is going strong at ESRM, with 24 cricketers preparing intensively for the first ever German U12 tournament last week. Over the last weeks, the 3 teams led by Mr. Cox, Mr. Wilson and Mr. Adams have been in the outdoor and indoor nets to improve their skills and learn the many rules of this very special game. We have even welcomed the German National Captain (Anuradha Doddaballpur) and National Trainer (Michael Thewlis) last week to give specialized training and support for the boys and girls of both the tournament and non-tournament teams. We thank both for their support, and look forward to welcoming them in the future.
Good luck to the ESRM A, B and C teams in the tournament next weekend (13 and 14th November)!
