344 Pages of school history on the occasion of the anniversary

344 pages of school history on the occasion of the anniversary

As a "higher daughter school the caspar vischer high school in kulmbach started teaching in 1893. At a time when kulmbach had a population of just 7,000, this was something very special.
"The CVG is a piece of emancipation history, there has always been an innovative aspect to the school", said principal ulrike endres at the presentation of the commemorative publication for the school anniversary. 344 pages full of school history, biographies and contributions to the changes in the school building over time.

"A treasure chest"

The historian wolfgang schoberth was taken with the school building: "the CVG is a treasure chest, here we find great art on the building, such as the grandiose mosaic frieze in the atrium, created by the artists hans lewerenz and caspar walter rauh." The building itself was built in the bauhaus style and was a matter of the heart of fritz kerling, the city’s chief architect, who was a pupil of heinrich tessenow, the cult architect of the early modern era. The great thing is that the art is still kept alive at the CVG today.
A lot has changed at the school, and not just in the building itself. "The current library used to house the school chest", said ulrike endres, and thomas pittroff, now a teacher at the CVG, recalled his own school days. He belonged to the last class that was still cooking here "and at least as well as the girls". The boys at the former girls’ high school had to fight for some of their rights, such as being allowed to enroll in the social sciences branch of their education. "At first, that was reserved for girls only", explained ulrike endres.

Prominenet former

In an article, anke emminger explains how girls’ and women’s education in germany has changed since 1893. The commemorative publication also features a number of contemporary witnesses and introduces famous former schoolgirls such as rosa viandt and luise praetorius.
Of course, an essay on the school’s namesake, well known to the people of kulmbach as the architect of the beautiful courtyard of the plassenburg castle, is not to be omitted. "There are so many exciting things to tell about our school, we didn’t have that much space in our commemorative publication. We have therefore decided to present the information in the form of highlights", said endres and thanked all involved.
The commemorative publication for the 125th anniversary of caspar-vischer-gymnasium is available for 7.90 euros from the secretary’s office or at the jubilee celebration on 21 june. JULY. Bookstores also prepared to display them.

Bad kissingen: serious swimming spab with franziska van almsick

Bad kissingen: serious swimming spab with franziska van almsick

Nearly two out of three ten-year-olds in germany can’t swim, according to a representative forsa survey. At sinnberg elementary school, the situation is even worse: almost three out of four children are unable to swim: "we have so many non-swimmers in the third and fourth classes", reports sports teacher christine steigmeier. The goal should be for every child to be able to swim by the time they leave school. "So we said we had to do something as early as the second grade", she says. The school is supported by the sonnenhugel family hotel in reiterswiesen and ex-professional swimmer franziska van almsick.

The city’s indoor pool is well utilized in the mornings. According to the town hall, eight schools from the town and the surrounding area use the pool for swimming lessons. Free capacities are only available on three weekdays between 1 and 2 p.M. So the school administration looked for other swimmers, approached clinics and hotels. After a long search, with success: "the hotel sonnenhugel has agreed to give us swimming times and a swimming instructor, says steigmeier. Since january, ten children from the all-day class 2c have learned to stay afloat in the hotel pool. "Now it’s up to the parents to move on", she finds.

This topic is also on the minds of multiple olympic medalist, world and european champion and world record swimmer franziska van almsick. "Every child who can’t swim can potentially drown", she says. Drowning is the second most common cause of death among children. So the 41-year-old has set up her own foundation to get involved in the issue. The declared goal is for every child in germany to master at least one type of swimming.

“I could freak out on topmodel”

Andreas pfeiffer laughs sheepishly. "Even closer?! Closer than touching is impossible!", he shouts. "Yes, we can, answers photographer christina stocker. "Stand belly to belly", she orders and pushes andreas pfeiffer a bit towards alina breit. "When my friend sees that!", calls the. "Thank god I don't have a girlfriend anymore", says andreas. "Tell your friend to call me, I'll talk to him", says christina stocker.

She is taking pictures of the two winners of "herzocity is looking for the herzomodels", alina breit and andreas pfeiffer. Both completely in female, as ruthild schrepfer from the forder- und werbegemeinschaft herzogenaurach put it. But not until they were already there – the colorful shirts that the 16-year-old brought with him could be left in his backpack. Instead, he now wears a female polo shirt – and feels uncomfortable: "I only have three T-shirts and a whole closet full of shirts. They simply look better."

But he takes it calmly, just like the fact that it didn't really work out with his hairstyle either – for which he was sent to the hairdresser's especially. "Normally I have much more side partings." Nevertheless, he left after ten minutes.

Around 5,000 day guests on the volkersberg

In the youth education center and the learning center volkersberg paid 32 in the past year.958 overnight stays and around 5000 day guests. This makes the volkersberg house not only one of the most popular hosts among the conference houses of the bishopric of wurzburg, but also of the city and the state spa of bruckenau, according to a press release from the volkersberg.

While many groups used the house volkersberg as a meeting house for their own program, the guests of the own offers of the youth education center and the lernwerk volkersberg formed a good third of the overnight stays. The company’s activities include events for school classes, such as orientation days and circus project weeks, as well as company weekends, vacation camps and educational events.

In promoting these events, the volkersberg team had to contend above all with the effects of the european basic data protection regulation, it continues. In order to be able to send out the bergwerk program booklet in compliance with the law, all recipients had to give their written consent once again. "Unfortunately, we have lost several thousand addresses due to a lack of feedback.", explains ralf sauer, who is responsible for public relations at volkersberg. "To communicate with our guests, we are now increasingly using new channels such as a telegram information channel, facebook, instagram or youtube. We are especially proud of our new homepage, which has been online for three months now."

Samuel koch answers questions from bamberger high school students

Samuel koch answers questions from bamberger high school students

A rush. A crackling sound. The loudspeakers were acting up during the first few minutes of samuel koch’s reading on monday evening. Coincidence? The loudspeaker boxes are located directly in the bookshelves of the university bookstore "gorres. Between "divine – damned and "I will protect you. And once again the question: coincidence? "I don’t think there are any accidents", assures samuel koch.

Samuel koch does not really need to be introduced. You can read in his eyes that this suits him least of all, as he is welcomed as an honorary guest. He rolls his eyes, bites his lip. When he has to hear that he is a role model for many people of all ages, he is overwhelmed – maybe even a little annoyed. Again and again, the young man makes it clear that he does not find himself admirable, that he has not been listened to. But: the bambergers see it differently.

In shirt and tie, jeans and sweater, concert reading or podium discussion – not only on monday in bamberg – the acting student is always sitting on some stage more or less voluntarily. As a morning grouch, he has no easy task ahead of him at ten o’clock: "why don’t you tell us what values mean to you?, he is challenged by matthias soffler, teacher at franz-ludwig-gymnasium. A lecture – samuel koch is not in the mood for it. He prefers to chat a bit with the students. He is ducky. And he was also allowed to be called by his first name. But that doesn’t go over well with the students, who sit there armed with notepad and pencil to ask him intelligent questions.

The last one, the "baumgartentor in the direction of seubrigshausen, was demolished in 1941 as an obstacle to traffic. It had last served as a poorhouse. In the old village center, there were largely double to quadruple farms in earlier times.

The rough soldier – and his rough wife

From grobwenkheim comes the recently deceased bishop of speyer, dr. Anton schlembach (from 1983 to 2007). He was born in 1932 in grobwenkheim and spent his childhood here.

Cooking together was a big hit

Cooking together was a big hit

Every year, the eighth grade french students at CVG participate in a french exchange, but what about the latin students?? The caspar vischer high school thought about this and found a solution in the rumanian town of constanza. For the local high school was decided for several reasons. "The roman poet ovid lived there in exile, there is a lot of evidence from the roman period, and roman is a living language that still has strong roots in latin.", according to principal ulrike endres.
Constanza offers latin school students the opportunity to get to know roman culture and learn a lot about our eastern neighbors. German is also an important cultural language in romania.
After a visit by CVG students to romania, 13 ninth graders and two teachers made a return visit to kulmbach, where they lived with host families. A varied program, prepared by waltraud berner, provided a lot of variety and cultural insights. Excursions to bayreuth and regensburg went down just as well with the young people as the kulmbach city rally, a hike to plassenburg castle or the joint cooking activity in the museum education center.
The romanian guests attend one of the best state schools in the country, the school system is similar to that in germany, but has some differences. "In our school, everyone attends general school until the eighth grade, and only then do we separate the children, teacher laurentiu diamandi explained. He had noticed that the lessons at the CVG were more practice-oriented, the raw interest in art and theater was great.
An evening tour with night watchman erich olbrich brought the eventful week to a close.
