Gemeinsam Zukunft tragen

Im Rahmen der WDA Amerika Tagung 2018 (Weltverband Deutscher Auslandsschulen mit Sitz in Berlin), reiste die Vorstandsvorsitzende der German School Campus Inc aus
Newport Beach Kalifornien, Frau Schoeneich nach Valdivia in Chile.
Die Einladung galt der 160 Jahr Feier der Deutschen Schule Valdivia in Süd Chile zu der Vorstandsvorsitzende, Schulleiter und Vorstandsmitglieder aus zehn Ländern Nord und Südamerikas, sowie Vertreter des WDA aus China, Frankreich, Kolumbien und Deutschland anreisten.

Vom 25.10.2018 bis 28.10. 2018 trafen sich die Mitglieder um gemeinsam mit Vertretern der ZfA (Zentralstelle für das Auslandsschulwesen) und dem Ministerium für Bildung aus Rheinland-Pfalz auch über Themen der Vorstandsarbeit und Verwaltung und Schulleitung zu diskutieren und sich mit dem Thema Bildung Made in Germany und Begegnung der Kulturen – Herausforderung und Chancen für das Schulmanagement
zu beschäftigen.

Der erste Eindruck bei der Landung in Valdivia war, dass es doch sehr grün dort aussah, mit Landwirtschaftlichen Flächen, Kühe, die weideten und Pferden auf den Koppeln.

Der Eröffnungsempfang fand im Ruderverein Phoenix statt, der 880 gegründet wurde und direkt am Valdivia -Fluss lag. Von dort aus waren es nur 15 Kilometer bis zum Pazifischen Ozean.

Am 2. Tag fand die Tagung in der Aula der Deutschen Schule Carlos Anwandter statt und man lernte die deutsche Schule mit einem gemeinsamen Rundgang durch Klassenräume, Sporthalle und Außenanlage kennen.

Carl Anwandter wanderte 1850 vom Brandenburgischen Luckenwalde nach Valdivia aus, gründete die Anwandter Brauerei, die Freiwillige Feuerwehr Germania, den Deutschen Club und die deutsche Schule im Jahr 1858. Es hatten schon 14 Generationen in dieser Schule ihren deutschen Schulabschluss gemacht, und so hat es niemanden verwundert, dass in der Stadt sehr viele Leute bereits die deutsche Sprache sprachen.

Zur 160 Jahr Feier fand im Auditorium der Universität San Sebastian Valdivia eine Theateraufführung statt, bei der die Schüler aller Jahrgangsstufen der Deutschen Schule ein Programm zusammengestellt hatten mit dem Motto einer Zeitmaschine
von der Entstehung der Schule zur heutigen Zeit. Die Jüngsten der Kindergarten Klassen kamen mit Laternen auf die Bühne und sangen „Sankt Martin.“

Der folgende Tag galt der gemeinsamen Netzwerkarbeit in Arbeitsgruppen und Workshops über die Verbandsentwicklung.

Ein gemeinsamer Ausflug mit Booten zum Restaurant Rio Ariba hinterließ einen großartigen Eindruck von der Schönheit der Umgebung, der Gastfreundschaft der Chilenen und der schmackhaften Küche.

Der letzte Tag war noch einem Landausflug gewidmet. Im Boot ging es den wunderschönen Flussarm hinauf, eine heutige Seenlandschaft. 1960 entstand durch die Senkung der Erdplatte das bisher größte Erdbeben in der Geschichte (9.4-9.6). So bildete sich diese Seenlandschaft in Valdivia, in der einst nur ein kleiner Fluss zwischen landwirtschaftlichen Flächen, floss.

Den Abschluss bildete eine Einladung zu einem hervorragenden und köstlichen Mittagessen in einer Reiterstube, bei der folkloristische Tänzer/innen eine traditionelle Darbietung gaben.

Am Nachmittag wurden alle Beteiligten zum Flughafen gefahren und jeder konnte seine Rückflug antreten.

Es war beeindruckend, wie stark der Einfluss eines deutschen Immigranten von vor 160 Jahren in dieser Region Chiles zu sehen war.

GERMAN SCHOOL campus needs help

Dear Respected Business Owner,
Dear Friends of our German Program,

We are a German School with locations in Newport Beach, Aliso Viejo and Carlsbad, with a wonderful German program for students age 4- 17-years. In our morning and afternoon program students build up the language courses over the years and can reach at High school level the German Sprachdiplom I or II which allows them to study in German or Austria on free tuition.

The German language gives students an investment in their future careers. With over 200 million speakers, it’s the language of global importance.

Each year, the school needs to ask for fundraising to raise money for the necessary capital improvement, financial aid and scholarships, which are not covered by tuition.

Some businesses helped to make a difference last year. The donation went to the scholarship fund and helped students to get a tuition free year of German Language classes.

We are also looking to get technology in class.

We are hoping, that your business can donate either goods towards our raffle at the St. Martin Lantern Fest in November 11th, or money this year. This will provide a tax-deduction for your company and a gift to all children. In addition, your donation will be acknowledged on all advertising through social Media and our promotional materials as well as announcement on the event.

Your 100% tax-deductible contribution will earn your business the respectful attention of our communities.

We are thus particularly grateful for the generosity that enables us to maintain our School program and retain a reputation as a center for loving and intelligent child education.

We thank you very much for your help.

You can donate through the web-site

We can arrange Pick-up for your contribution.

With sincere appreciation

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.

Sea Base Open House 2018

GERMAN SCHOOL campus Open House 2018

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.

Principal Ursula Schoeneich worked with children on the “Bridge to Europe” game to wake the interest of another language like German. Children of all ages with or without their parents challenged themselves to find the capital cities of European countries on the map.

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

German School campus presented the STEM Summer camp program and talked about the opportunities the German language can have and with how much fun the language will be learned . As this was a Community event, German school Campus hand out 100 donuts, treats and balloons to the children.
