Tiny Forest Planting Day
We were thrilled to celebrate the planting of the long-awaited Tiny Forest on 18th March 2022. We opened our school doors to over 200 members of extended school community and had a wonderful, sunny day planting over 450 trees. We were pleased to have parents and other community members back in the school.

Mr. Zijlstra, the school director, made an inspiring speech about our school’s role in promoting a sustainable future and placed a peace dove in the heart of the Forest to show our solidarity with the people involved in global conflicts. Other speeches were made by student body President, Simon H, the General Consul of Kazakhstan and Mr Kohl, the consultant to the TinyForest project.

A special thanks to Ms Bebb for coordinating the project, the 185+ sponsors who generously donated funds to realise our dream of having the TinyForest and to support future students of ESRM, and of course to all the students from ISRM, the primary school and the secondary school who were involved with the planting.

March 2022

Last week the ESRM cricket team played their first matches of the year vs Royal Strikers Frankfurt. In game 1, a strong batting performance led ESRM to 55 off their 5 overs. A 22 (retired out) by captain Yashas being a highlight off the innings. Consistent tight bowling restricted Royal Strikers to 51 off 5, meaning a 4 run victory. A superb catch by wicketkeeper Oscar being a highlight of the innings.

In game 2, a quick 22 from Tudor led ESRM to 58 off 5 overs. A wicket maiden from Sophie and excellent caught and bowled from Finn restricted the opposition to 28 off the 5 overs. Although with harder challenges to come, this was a great way to start the cricket season.

Future of Europe

The European School RheinMain, in cooperation with the Newcomers Festival and the Montagsgesellschaft was the proud host of a podium discussion dedicated to the Future of Europe. The Drummers Club of the Secondary School under the direction of Ms. Ester Costa, as well as Nicholas L. from S3 accompanied the event musically. An ESRM alumni, Malena B. and a current S6 student, Elias E. were the moderators of the event. The school director, Drs. Tom Zijlstra, opened and closed the event with a lot of humour and a personal account of what Europe means for him. Our esteemed panelists, Dr. Daniel Röder, Johannes Volkmann and Natalie Bridou discussed the past, present and future of Europe and in particular 75 years of French-German friendship!

Vive l’Europe or as the French artist Jean Cocteau would have said “L’europe c’est ma patrie” – Europe is our homeland.
