True to our tradition: On Thursday last week our school´s Culture Committee met to present and discuss the different aspects of the cultural work at school. The committee is formed by students’ representatives, management, select staff and the parent’s association. Together we looked at the school´s achievement in the Art and Music departments in Primary and Secondary. Also, we saw an overview of the big variety in the new European Hours curriculum for the Primary School. Mrs. Wenzel introduced the new formation of the Parents' Association. We congratulate Mrs. Wiebols on the presidency and thank Mrs. Wenzel for everything she has done for our school, in her time as head of the parents´ association.
(Emoji Französische Flagge) Attention French community: We are looking to strengthen our French department and our affiliation to the language and country. If you speak French, or have roots/interests in the culture, please do get in contact with the school’s management!
Cricket is going strong at ESRM, with 24 cricketers preparing intensively for the first ever German U12 tournament last week. Over the last weeks, the 3 teams led by Mr. Cox, Mr. Wilson and Mr. Adams have been in the outdoor and indoor nets to improve their skills and learn the many rules of this very special game. We have even welcomed the German National Captain (Anuradha Doddaballpur) and National Trainer (Michael Thewlis) last week to give specialized training and support for the boys and girls of both the tournament and non-tournament teams. We thank both for their support, and look forward to welcoming them in the future.
Good luck to the ESRM A, B and C teams in the tournament next weekend (13 and 14th November)!

This week on the 12th of October, also known as the National Day of Spain, many colleagues from Spain and South America had prepared delicious food in honour of their home countries and their culture. Diversity can also be delicious 😊
To all our Spanish/Latin American friends: Can you see anything from this spread that you recognise?
We wish you all happy national celebrations!

The project Mission Zero is part of the European Astro Pi Challenge, made possible by the European Space Agency. Young people write a simple program to take a humidity reading onboard the International Space Station and communicate it to the astronauts with a personalised message, which will be displayed for 30 seconds!
