Matilda and the Wunderkinder at the Grammar School

There are just a few hours left until the premiere performance of the school musical “Miracle – Wunderkinder” at Oberursel’s grammar school, and the cast and crew have been reheasing intensely for the past few days to get everything perfect.

Matilda is a gifted child but has parents who are of little means.  She likes to read, but there is only one book in the house: “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” by Mark Twain.  She is fascinated by the main figure in the book, who becomes a role model for her.  Later she is able to read other children’s books and also takes on some of the qualities of characters in them as well.

Gymnasium Oberursel – A Grammar School with a Future

For the past few years there has been a building site in the Berliner Straße while work was carried out on the Grammar School (Gymnasium).  At times the road was closed to traffic or narrowed.  The pupils were split across three locations.  And I learnt a new word – the green strips on the dark grey façade are called “Einsprengsel”.

But now the work is over and the school proudly opened up their new buildings to the public last Saturday, during which the key was ceremoniously handed over by the architects.

The morning began with the headmaster, Volker Räuber, welcoming the guests and highlighting the positive aspects of the new buildings: more space, modern IT connections to allow children to carry on working on projects at home, a large hall with professional sound and lighting, a media library, and three underground sports courts.  “Oberursel Grammar School is a school of the future”, he said, continuing “some other schools in the area can only dream of buildings like these”.  He also thanked the neighbours for their patience during the building phase.
