GERMAN SCHOOL Awards 2018

GERMAN SCHOOL campus Newport Beach Award Ceremony 2018

German school campus, Newport Beach is a Language School open to all children age 6-17 or if they are enrolled in a High School program.

In a special event on Saturday morning German School campus represented by School Director Ms. Ursula Schoeneich honored their outstanding students with certificates and medals. Everyone received a bag with treats and a gift for her/his accomplishment in
the German language.

In German School campus students can earn the Language certificates they need for High School credit and can participate every year in the AATG- National German Exam for High School students. The National German Exam provides an excellent opportunity to highlight student success and promote the German program to school. Recognizing students of the German Language at the special award ceremony every year and the schools honor program are wonderful opportunities for positive publicity for the German School program.

The Exam is comprised of two parts: Reading and Listening and Viewing. The Exam material comes from authentic resources. The Exam has 100 multiple choice and matching questions on each Level.

In 2018 AATG published that 25,939 students entered the exam on Levels 1,2,3 and 4. About 8,302 students earned medals and the Presidential Honor Roll, 3,158 in Gold, 2,461 in Silver and 2,683 in Bronze. 44 students received study trip awards to Germany:
For over 50 years, the Federal Republic of Germany, through the German Foreign Office (Auswärtiges Amt) and its Pedagogical Exchange Service (Pädagogischer Austauschdienst), has provided the AATG/PAD Study Trip Awards, a 3-4-week trip to Germany in the summer following the Exam. Students attend classes at an academic High School stay in homestays, and participate in various excursions to places of cultural significance.

All National German Exam Gold, Silver, and Bronze Award Winners will be honored online with a special commendation from the AATG President. These Awards are given to students who achieved the highest percentile rankings on the NGE. German School campus students have the possibility to be part of this exam program
and they did it! We proudly honored this year 2 students with Bronze and 9 students with Gold certificates and medals.

During the Schools award ceremony one students was sworn in to the Delta Epsilon Phi (ΔΕΦ) National Honor Society for High School Students of German who recognizes the outstanding academic achievement of a learner of German. completed three semesters of German with a 3.6 grade point average in German and have an
overall grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. The organization was founded in 1968 by Käthe Wilson at Coral Gables High School
(FL), a devoted AATG member, to reward scholastic achievement in the study of German and to promote interest in the study of German language, literature, and civilization.

Additionally, two students were honored who mastered the Goethe C1 Sprachdiplom in April 2018.

All students made German School campus very proud this year! We said: “Auf Wiedersehen und viel Glück,”to those students who finished the German School program after many years of their commitment.

CALIFORNIA GLOBAL

Global education in schools

learning a foreign language is designed to build “global competence” in students. Students are investigating the world beyond their immediate environment; to recognize differing perspectives including others’ and their own; to effectively communicate ideas, in multiple languages, with diverse audiences; and to take action to improve conditions.

California is at the cutting edge of technological change, demographic transformation, and international engagement. It has the country’s largest population, and is its biggest producer of agricultural and manufactured goods, its main exporter and importer, and a leading center for higher education, research, the media, and philanthropy. Its population is the most international; more than a quarter of the state’s residents were born in another country. But habits of thought and structures date from the mid-twentieth century, when California was turned inward. California today lacks ideas, institutions, and policies commensurate with its global stakes and clout.

We are proud to announce that we are the latest member of WDA Weltverband Deutscher Auslandsschulen.

GERMAN SCHOOL CAMPUS

In the context of extracurricular German language teaching in California, which is gaining importance not only in this state, but generally in the US, the school occupies an important position.
German School Campus Inc was founded in 2015 by Mrs. Ursula Schoeneich.

Students start with the German Beginner’s Course A1 and build up the language courses over the years.

You can take the exams
  • AATG German Examination for High School 1 to 4,
  • A1, A2, the German Language Diploma I and
    the German Language Diploma II as well as AP German (Advanced Placement for the College).

Part of the teaching philosophy is to help students retain new vocabulary and learn grammatical concepts more easily. When talking about sports, they take advantage of the exceptional location just off Newport Bay and take the students out to sea for kayaking or rigging a sailboat “in German”.  Who says working on new vocabulary is not fun ?!

In order to bring the German culture closer to the students, the school has cultural events throughout the year, such as the German Reunification Week, St. Martin’s Day, St. Nicholas, Christmas, Carnival, Easter, May Day, German Heritage Day in America.
In addition to classes (Monday and Thursday afternoon) at the Newport Beach site, the school also runs a yearly STEM / MINT summer camp each year.

The mission of the German School Campus Newport Beach is a language school that is open to all students who want to master the German language or acquire German language skills. Courses are offered for native and non-native speakers ages 4 to 17. The Newport Beach campus offers students of all races, color, religion, national and ethnic origin all rights, privileges, programs and activities that are generally granted and made available to the students of the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color and religion, national or ethnic origin in the management of its education policy.

Since 2009, German lessons are also available in distance learning.

Das Wunder von Bern

Film Evening GERMAN SCHOOL campus

GERMAN SCHOOL campus is presenting a film evening at Old World in Huntington Beach On Big Screen. Movie is a free event.

Old World German Restaurant will be open for dinner. Guest are encouraged to make reservations at (714) 895-8020.

Friday June 15 – 7:00 pm 

The Movie: Das Wunder von Bern

Director: Sönke Wortmann, Germany, 2003, 118 min., digital. In German with English subtitles

Starring: Louis Klamroth, Peter Lohmeyer, Johanna Gastdorf, Peter Franke, Sascha Göpel. Suitable for general audiences.

Summer, 1954, Germany’s Ruhr Valley.

Shortly before West Germany is to compete in the World Cup, Richard Lubanski (Lohmeyer) returns home after eleven years in a Soviet prisoner of war camp to his wife Christa (Gastdorf) and his three children.

Richard’s son, Matthias (Klamroth), has never known his father and looks up to local soccer hero Helmut Rahn (Göpel) as a role model. Alienated from a country and a family he barley recognizes, Richard initially looks down on his son’s love of soccer. However, Matthias’ infectious passion for the sport soon draws Richard out of his depression; creating a connection between the two, and rejuvenating the family.

The new bond between father and son is cemented as the two travel to see Rahn and the West German national team compete for the World Cup in Bern, Switzerland. Wortmann’s multi-award winning film is a heart-warming and inspirational portrait of West Germany during the post-war Wirtschaftswunder, or “economic miracle”. A huge sensation in Germany, the film links the nation’s unexpected victory in the World Cup with Germany’s new-found sense of identity.

Winner of three German Film Awards: Best Picture, Audience Award for Best Actor, Audience Award for Best German Film.

Presented with the support of the Goethe-Institut

Maifest

Maifest with GERMAN SCHOOL campus

Yesterday was the “Maifest” in Old World Village hosted by German School campus.

Stores remained open, so families could run some errands.
It was a bit chilly out there and the sun came through partially, but the families who came with the children had fun.

The “Donau Schwaben” Youth Group from Los Angeles opened the afternoon with  dances and the dance around the “Maypole”.

School Director Ursula Schoeneich got a craft table for pebble stone painting, like a ladybug or Elmo, flowers on a stone or hearts. Children got so creative. 

Claudia Tichy read a pat out of her children’s book “Tesha entdeckt die Welt,” and signed the books.

Eva Tran crafted colorful ribbons on a stick.

Livia Wielath got the young kids on the feet with the song
“Kangaroo,” and all used the ribbon sticks for their moves.

We ended our day with a great dinner, a glass of “Radler” in the Old-World Restaurant.

Thank you to all and Thank you to Cyndie Kasko from Old World.

Livia Wielath entertained children with the „Känguru“ song.

Pentecost

It is “Pfingsten” – Pentecost

Have you heard about the phrase:“Jemand hat sich wie ein Pfingstochse geschmückt.“ (Someone is dressed like an Ochs- it is too much and too colorful)?

Traditionally farmers in the Alp regions bring the cows to the higher areas of the Alps where they remain all summer, as the weather gets better. The cows are beautifully decorated like you see on the picture.
Like a parade they will be guided through the villages.

Why do we celebrate Pentecost?
It is a Christian fest.
Germany has a “Pfingstsonntag” and “Pfingsmontag”, as official Holiday.
Businesses and stores are most likely closed.

It is the 50th day after Easter.

It is always in Spring. Trees get green leaves, flowers are blooming.
The so called “Pfingstrosen” bloom only in this time of the year.

What a beautiful day at Sea Base Open House. Kids got an excursion on the water in a Sail boat, Pontoon boat or row the boat and kayak.  They got a hand on fishing and life science.

The Sea Scouts did very well. Sea Scouts, Boy Scouts and Girl Cup Scouts raised the American Flag.
