100 years of a Modern Grammar School

On 25th February 1913 the building of what was to become Oberursel’s Grammar School was officially opened.

Just over 100 years later, on Saturday, 29th June, 2013, it was the school’s headmaster, Volker Räuber, who addressed an audience of around 300 guests first about that occasion, and took a moment to look back at what the school had achieved and plans for the future.  “If not know, then when?” he asked.

Taking the audience on a journey through the educational and sometimes political topics of those years, he described the school as an island, and criticised in particular the Pisa study that took place some years ago, saying that it was typical in Germany to look at things that go wrong, rather than achievements.

School broken into in the Zimmersmühlenweg

A school in the Zimmersmühlenweg was broken into last weekend between Friday 22nd and Monday 25th of March (2013).

What is going to happen to the temporary classrooms in the Marxstraße?

If you drive along the Marxstraße in Oberursel you can’t help noticing the empty classrooms at one end of the road next to the Red Cross building and just before the entrance to Rolls Royce.

These „temporary“ classrooms have now been there for just over 25 years, and have over the course of those years been home to classes from Frankfurt International School (FIS), the primary school in Oberstedten, the primary school in Bommersheim and the grammar school (Gymnasium).

But now they stand empty and at the town council meeting last week the CDU party put forward no less than two motions on what to do with them, which led into another two motions on after-school child-care places.

The first suggestion was to have the buildings checked out to see if they can offer additional after-school places until others become available. This needed very little discussion, as, apparently, there is a tradition for all parties to support motions to “check” things, so-called “Prüfanträge”. [Read more…]
