Celebration of Élysée Treaty
Posted 12/10/2013 03:44PM

On Friday November 29th, grade 4 & 5 students from the German Heritage Program and the French Bilingual Program celebrated together the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Élysée Treaty between Germany and France.

At the beginning of the ceremony, the French students, Eve, Lucien, Benjamin and William, and the German students, Lisa, Jun-Maurice and Saskia introduced themselves. Then the French and German students have presented their home countries through self-created Keynote presentations. The teachers, Mrs. Catherine Buatois and Mr. Marcus Boss, lectured on the mutual history of both countries and underlined the important role of both countries in the development of the European Union. Following was a quiz about the Elysee Treaty, which the students solved in mixed groups.

After a short break for breakfast with croissants and pretzels, the students practiced German and French everyday vocabulary (Guten Tag - Bonjour - Hello, Danke - Merci - Thank you etc.) and sang the French and German version of the song "Frere Jacques / Bruder Jakob”. The students were excited to participate in this form of cross-program teaching and expressed the wish to repeat a similar encounter soon.
