Early in the half term holidays 36 students from Year 8 to 11 and four members of staff went on the German trip for 5 days. The trip was full of cultural experiences based in Freiburg and the Black Forest region. On our first day we visited a traditional glass blowing factory, where students saw glass being made in front of their eyes and found out about the rich history of blowing glass in the region. We then visited the Black Forest Open Air museum, where the students found out about the history of life in the area.
The second day our Year 11s started us off with a brilliant walking tour of the old town of Freiburg, showing off their excellent leadership skills as they acted as tour guides for our younger students.
We then braved the cable car to take us to the top of Schaunisland, where we had some incredible views over Freiburg and the region. The sun came out for a very pleasant lunchtime boat cruise on Lake Titisee, before heading off to discover Germany’s longest waterfall in Triberg.
Our last day has been described as the highlight of the trip by lots of the students. We visited the Hans-Thoma-Gymnasium, our partner school in Lörrach, where students spent the day with their pen friends. They tried out lessons in a German school, gave a presentation about life at Frensham Heights, went on a scavenger hunt around the town and then experienced traditional “Kaffee und Kuchen”, coffee and cake, put on by the amazing parents’ committee.
