School assembly for grades 7 – 12
On 2nd October 2014, RIS Swiss Section - Deutschsprachige Schule Bangkok held a school assembly for grades 7 to 12. Students and teachers were greeted with welcoming words from Monika Eberl, Head of Secondary. She explained to the students that more and more institutions of higher education and employers are requiring language certificates from their candidates as proof of their language competencies. This is why RIS Swiss Section - Deutschsprachige Schule Bangkok is preparing their students for internationally recognized language exams.
The “Deutsches Sprachdiplom der Kultusministerkonferenz” (engl.: German Language Diploma of the Education Ministers’ Conference) can be obtained by high school students abroad as a certificate proving German language proficiency in two levels, in grades 8 and 11.
All students in these grades proudly received their diplomas on this occasion from Principal Dominique Tellenbach. Afterwards, the students of grade 12 who passed the exams for the Advanced or Proficiency English Certificate, issued by the University of Cambridge, also received their certificates.
At the end of the assembly the four interns from the Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich who are leaving the school at the end of this week were bid farewell with flowers and a big round of applause from the students and teachers..
