The German Connection
The Heritage School – partners with the Goethe Institut : Our school is one of the four schools in the city to have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Goethe Institut, Kolkata, introducing German as a foreign language and training two of its teachers to learn German. The school is now a PASCH school and works very closely with the Goethe Institut, Kolkata on various projects and programmes. Our partnership with Sophie Scholl Gesamtschule(SSGS), Wennigsen started in the year 2008 and we have collaborated on many projects since. The first set of Year 9 students visited SSGS in May 2011 and the Germans are scheduled to visit us in September 2011.
Appreciating our work, the Bosch Company agreed to fund yet another project with SSGS. The students of Year 11 are working on renewable energy with their German counterparts. Our partner school, Sophie Scholl Gesamtschule, Wennigsen, is to visit us in November 2011 and the The Heritage School students will visit Wennigsen in March 2012.
