New School Year begins at Concordia German School

by Herwig Wandschneider

Herwig Wandschneider

As for everyone else, who pursues an education in Ontario, school is well under way again, and so it is for the 700 odd students from Junior Kindergarten to Adult Saturday morning classes at the German Language School Concordia in Kitchener.

For experienced students there is nothing special about the school begin. They know where to go, or where to get the information. At the junior level though, the anticipation and excitement of the first day permeates the school corridors, with laughter, crying and in some cases a wild goose chase for the right room.

Senior Kindergarten receives first instructions  [photo: Herwig Wandschneider]The latter is, of course, true primarily for the Junior Kindergarten, who are at this school for the first time. Or the Senior Kindergarten, where the rooms at Crestview had to be switched due to reconstruction of some classrooms over the summer recess. However, the excitement was soon channelled into the first day of learning, which, for the Tiny Tots, included instructions for where to hang the coats and where the washrooms are.

Parents will face a test of persistence to ensure that their children maintain the German language by attending the Saturday Morning School for many years to come. The reward at the end will be a huge THANK YOU from the children, once they mature, plus High School Credits, possible German Language Diploma, and good prospects to win one of the many language contests.
