A lucky charm on four legs for our Class of 2014

A surprise on four legs awaited our graduating class on Thursday, January 30, 2014. Right before the start of their written Abitur examinations, students were able to pet a lucky pig for moral support. A novelty in the history of the German School. The cute pig left everyone in high spirits and students could release the last bit of stress on a punching bag. Let’s hope the students did not think of their teachers at this point.

The school community thanks Antje Sina for organizing this wonderful surprise, and we wish our graduating class the best of luck with their ongoing exams!
