Full reopening of Primary in European School Karlsruhe!

On Monday 15th of June 2020 it was finally possible to welcome back all year groups in the Primary school at the ESK.

After weeks of planning, preparing and waiting, the blue gate opened at 7.40 and the children from years 1, 2 & 3 were able to join their fellow pupils from year 4 & 5, who have been back in school since Monday 18th of May 2020.

The children were happy to be back in school with their teachers and friends.

In order to avoid having to send year 4 & 5 back to distance learning, unusual „class rooms“ were needed. Some lessons are currently taking place in the canteen, the aula, the sports halls etc – but both teachers and children are positive about this new adventure. Additionnaly a seperate break time plan has been drafted to ensure social distance among the children and to reduce the number of children leaving/entering the buildings.

I am very pleased that it was possible to bring all year groups back, not only for teaching, but especially for the social interaction and to see their friends before the summer holidays.

Welcome back to everyone!
