Student testimonial: Welcome to Georg-Weerth-School

The name of our school is Georg-Weerth-Schule. We have 400 students and about 45 teachers. The first lesson starts at 8 a.m. and ends between 14:30 and 15.30, depending which day it is. We have a ten minute break after every lesson and two big breaks: the first is 20, the second 40 minutes long.

In Germany there is another grade system. In this school you will find students in the 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th grade.

We also have 3 yards, one is only for 7th graders, mine is for 8th and 9th graders and the last is for grade 10. There are also lockers you can use, but students aren’t really using them. At our school there is no cheerleader or soccer team. Of course, you can go to an after-class activities where you play soccer, but that’s not really a team!

Something cool at our school is that we have a basketball-court and we have some kids who are really good at playing basketball.

Of course, we also have some important rules: no smoking, no alcohol, no weapons, but I guess that is the same at every school. If you want to know what lessons you have, look at your schedule. If you don’t find the room, you can ask the teacher.

I assume you guys should go to your classes now! By now you should know enough.
