For the past 10 years H.I.S. students, staff and parents have supported the Waldpiraten Camp in Heidelberg. The Camp runs a therapeutic, recreational programme for children affected by cancer. http://www.waldpiraten.de
Our annual Waldpiraten Run will take place again this year:
Friday, 27th September 2019, 13:30-15:00, Sportzentrum West
The whole school will be involved and students and staff will be running laps to raise money on the day. Please support us and the Waldpiraten.
In the week before school started we were happy to receive a visit from Tatsuki Yamamoto and his mother.
This is not the first time that Tatsuki has returned to visit since he was in Grade 3 in the 2015-16 school year and although he only spent one year at H.I.S. there were many memories we could share. He was excited to meet some of his former teachers and toured the school, including the extension, which was not even planned when he was here.
Tatsuki has kept in contact with members of staff at H.I.S. and regularly sends cards including his own drawings. His picture of the school still takes pride of place in the English Support room.
Tatsuki is currently in 7th Grade in his home country of Japan. He misses his friends in Germany, but is enjoying life.
We wish you well Tatsuki and we hope to see you again in the future!
Last week 3 sun sails arrived just in time for the beginning of the school year to provide shade for students, staff and parents at break time or after school. They cover the chess area, the sandpit and the area next to the slide.
