A Virtual German National Day

Learning not only the language, but also understanding the culture of our home countries Switzerland, Germany, and Austria is an essential part of the studies at the RIS Swiss Section – Deutschsprachige Schule Bangkok. On Friday, October 1st, 2021, we, therefore, hosted a virtual German National Day event for our students from Grade 5 to 12. The goal of this virtual ceremony was to let all students understand and experience these important events in German history – also during the time of distance learning. Jens Eggert, the Head of Secondary School, addressed the students in an interesting video speech from the Reichstag in Berlin and the school’s library. Later, during different workshops, the students created their own learning program where they could choose from a great selection of videos, songs, texts, virtual museum visits, and quizzes.
