Where Little Princes Played

Castles, knights and princesses ... Which child does not dream of this? The groups of the Kindergarten's ground floor, the French group (Fr A) and the two German groups (B and C), went on a trip to the Nymphenburg Castle on the 9th June 2015.

Prior to this excursion, the children were busy preparing for this trip. The children built little castles and the teachers talked with them about their specific architecture and about how life had been at that time. And then the day of the excursion finally arrived. We took the underground train and tram, which was very exciting.

Once on the premises of castle, we all gathered in the Privy Garden, which became our meeting point and "camp" for the day, where we had our lunch and were could play games. The three classes were divided into five small groups, giving the children the opportunity to spend time with other children during the day. Each group could participate in an official tour of the castle, for instance, to have a look around the main castle with its many rooms to visit or take part in a guided tour on the theme: "Where the prince played and the princess dined".

As the site was so big and not all children were able to see everything, every group were given a specific task. One group painted the "Amalienburg" castle, other children were asked to spot certain details in the palace gardens and record their findings or to find the "Magdalenenklause", a habitable artificial ruin, with the help of a map. A highlight was the much-looked-forward-to-visit of the Marstall museum, where the children were able to marvel at the "golden carriage" of King Ludwig II.

No chance of boredom there: there were so many things to discover. However, even the most exciting excursion comes to an end eventually. And with many impressions and tired feet, we travelled back to Kindergarten. Two days later we met again and looked at the photos we had taken and the pictures we had painted. Each group told the others what they had seen and liked the best.

Premiere: Twelfth Night

In the first week of July, the year s2-s4 drama group will again be presenting their talents. Following the successful performance of "Scrooge - A Christmas Carol" in December 2014 (for which the group has been nominated for the Pepper drama prize as "Best Newcomer"), the students will now be performing another classic: "Twelfth Night, or What You Will" by William Shakespeare. As we already know from the older students' drama performances, in this stage play there will also be some scenes in the original language version.

Shipwrecked and just barely escaped with her life, Viola strands on the coast of an unknown country: Illyria, ruled by Duke Orsino, who is courting the beautiful Countess Olivia. However, Olivia rejects Orsino again and again as she is in deep mourning about the death of her brother. Disguised as a man, Viola enters into the service of the Duke. The stranger comes in handy and is quickly made into Orsino's messenger of love. But the Countess still does not want anything to do with him. Instead, she falls hopelessly in love with "Cesario", who is Viola in disguise. Viola in turn has feelings for her master Orsino, who believes she is a man... Olivia's stuck-up steward Malvolio also has romantic feelings for his mistress, making him an easy prey of the other residents' mean pranks. When Violas twin brother Sebastian, believed dead, suddenly turns up alive in Illyria, the confusion becomes perfect: Everyone is in love, and no one knows who the other really is.

The performances will take place again in the Pepper Theatre in the PEP shopping centre in Neuperlach.

The premiere will be held on Wednesday, July 1, 2015 at 19:30

Further performances will be on:

  • Thursday, 2nd July at 14:00 and 19:30
  • Friday, 3rd July at 11:00 and 19:30
  • Saturday, 4th July at 19:30

Students are in part rehearsing under the direction of the year s6/s7 drama group during their free periods, after school and on weekends. This time, the stage design can only be created in the very last minute, which is due to the particular type of material used. More shall not be revealed here, let yourself be surprised!

To avoid that both actors and spectators miss classes, there will be no performance visits during the regular school hours.
