With 'rocky' into the blue hour

There is a special blue in the sky that can be seen between dawn and sunset. Chansonniers refer to it, novelists too. Blue hour – the blue hour is suitable for concerts or at least as a program title. Like on thursday evening in the gymnasium of the meranian high school, while the sky was anything but blue.

But what brightened the spirits of the visitors from 7 p.M. Onwards was the concert by the MGL big band under the direction of iris arnal. In the end the big band should even become a very big band. The meranian high school not only has a great jazz band, but also a decent offspring of people interested in a style of music that emerged in the 1920s.

Blue program sheet

So for the last numbers after the break, even students from the lower school joined them on stage, until even a cast of 37 was reached. The blue program sheet for the blue hour, displayed near the gymnasium gym, featured lots of tunes rewritten for the big band style and written after the 1920s. Like "gonna fly now, bill conti’s world-famous hymn to the rocky movies. A great introduction, which gave a foretaste of the passion with which the at this point 23-headed big band would manage the evening.

While the christ child symposium is rather hard work for the young ladies, it could be an occasion for great joy for children from the coburg, sonneberg, rennsteig region.

The essential advantage of the school offer "open all-day school" the reason for this lies in the fact that the parents are free of charge and only have to pay a play money or a fee.

To be provided. For friday care until 4 p.M., the annual flat rate is 5.400 euro. Vacation care is charged at 285 euros to the day and is offered for a minimum of eight students.

Questions from the councillors

Following the presentation, the community council discussed in detail the differences between the after-school care program and the OGS. The female councillors in particular could not understand why there is no childcare in the OGS on fridays. In the end, the community council agreed that high-quality care makes the school location of litzendorf even more attractive.
It was also clear to everyone that this would not be free of charge. For councillor franz-josef schick (SPD) there are no better investments than investments in the future of children". The cooperation agreement with iso e.V. Was approved unanimously.

Numerous private individuals had also formulated detailed objections to the type of future development, the size of the houses and the development of the area. These were likewise appreciated by the municipal council.

Weibe balloons against forgetting

White balloons as far as the eye can see. One balloon after another rises into the gray november sky on this thursday morning at the school center. The women's hang-outs carry an important message: for tolerance, equality, freedom, and against prejudice, exclusion and forgetting! The balloons have quotes from sophie scholl and dietrich bonhoeffer attached to them, as well as very personal lines from their senders, the students from different grades and types of school.

Two of them are sabrina and lea. The two eleven-year-olds attend the siegmund-loewe secondary school. They each chose a quote from the two people who were victims of the nazi regime and attached it to their balloons. On the back of the card, the women of kronach have written what peace means to them personally.

"That you don't bully anyone"

Both have chosen the same theme. "For me, peace means that you don't bully anyone", sabrina explains. Lea also wishes that everyone gets along well with each other and that mobbing no longer takes place. The two girls think the balloon campaign is very good. "Because it is important to remember and so that this does not happen again", do you think.

Courage for the new school

Ekkehard roepert

Karlheinz schoofs is pleased about the "new way". If only because "it has to do with grassroots democracy", emphasizes the principal of the ehrenburg grammar school. The impetus to return to the nine-year gymnasium came from the parents in bavaria, karlheinz schoofs recalls. "And the work we have to do with it, we do gladly."
The advantages of the G9 model are obvious to the head of the egf: "in the nine-year high school, we have time to coordinate school and extracurricular activities." During the G8 period, for example, it was not easy to organize a vocational internship "because the week plays into the lessons. Even the exchange trips to spain, poland or italy are more relaxed "when the timetable stretches over nine years". School-based learning experiences now had more room again.
"Because the schools need the maturity", ingrid kafferlein, head of the herder grammar school, was "enthusiastic about G9 right from the start. But although jurgen sauer, the deputy head of herder, has also experienced the disadvantages of the G8 too much, he emphasizes: "there is something to carry on". The G8 model will be replaced by the "double period principle" retained. This rhythmization allows for an exam-free period. The herder will therefore continue to schedule compulsory classes on tuesdays and thursdays, elective classes on mondays and wednesdays, and friday afternoons will remain free. And "another positive" G8, says jurgen sauer: "the intensification lessons help to deepen content and make up for lost time."
No afternoon classes in the middle school and "more freedom of choice" in general – this is ingrid kafferlein's good news for the new G9 generation. One wish remains open, however: "in the future, high school graduates should also have greater freedom of choice." Without lowering the level of graduation, for example, consideration should be given to "whether you have to take a written exam in all three school-leaving subjects", says the herder boss.

No more packed days

"It is of course exciting", says karlheinz schoofs – and is referring to the curricular changes that have been made for the 8th grade., 9. And 10. And for the design of the baccalaureate, the first. "It's still uncertain how far the reform can go in the upper school", says schoofs. He personally would even like to see a return to the performance courses.
In any case, there is now a "coherent package" before, says erhard herrmann, the principal of the frankische schweiz grammar school in ebermannstadt. He also had "only positive" feedback from parents heard.
As a model school in bavaria, ebermannstadt has already tried out giving the students a longer period of time over the past few years: the "plus-schools got one year extra after middle school. That's why erhard herrmann has a clear idea of the contrast between G8 and G9: "especially for schools in rural regions, it means a great deal of relaxation. You don't have to wait for trains and buses and are home in the afternoon." More exercise, more sports, more time for extracurricular activities – the relief in favor of a "better development of young people" the main advantage of G9, says herrmann, is that "afternoons had to be crammed in with G8. Ten hours of instruction a day is something we no longer have to expect of anyone." At the same time, the principal's offices of all three district high schools emphasize that the "fast lane" is the only way to go the possibility of continuing to complete high school in eight years is welcome. In part, the schools wanted it. Principal herrmann says this not only with regard to highly gifted students, but also because of the option of having a second grade in the 11th grade. Going abroad for a year: "in the normal G8, this was hardly possible."
This "fast lane with its two speeds" is easy to organize, says karlheinz schoofs. Even before the legal return to G9, he had asked around in the collegium. And 88 out of 90 teachers had voted for the G8. It's still unclear who or what will decide in the future whether a schoolchild chooses the fast track: the will of the parents? The testimony?
"This is completely new territory, says jurgen sauer. In any case, thanks to the mentoring and tutoring system, the fast lane is a winner. Whereas ingrid kafferlein believes that the elective G8 "will not be a big hit" in terms of demand.

In july last year, the city council held a general debate on how to proceed with the city’s old cemetery. The results of the debate should make the office arc.Grun in a future planning and present again. This happened in the meeting on monday evening.

A paved median, more burials in the eastern part, the creation of a central square in front of the blessing hall and various solutions for urn burials, tree plantings and the creation of resting benches were found in the elaboration.

The estimated total cost of the remodeling is around 260,000 euros. However, in order to obtain the space for the area in front of the blessing hall, some grave rights were not allowed to be extended. Five graves had to be relocated. The council must decide on this individually.

He had spruced himself up – after all, he is "number 1 of the rennsteig-fachoberschule (FOS) in ludwigsstadt. And finally, it was the first time he answered questions for a film: christian schmidt is the first student to enroll in the rennsteig-fachoberschule (technical high school).
There was no sign of any limelight fever on sunday afternoon when he answered moderator florian schroder's questions in the town hall. 16 years old. He became aware of the FOS through a newspaper report. A few days later, the young man reported, he had inquired with mayor timo ehrhardt (SPD) and attended information evenings in the town hall.
For him, the FOS in ludwigsstadt has several advantages. On the one hand, there was the short way, because he was from ludwigsstadt. He continues to expect good prospects, because in addition to a sound school education, he has practical lessons.

Plans for the future

After leaving school, the young man wanted to complete a dual course of study in mechanical engineering with a parallel apprenticeship as an industrial mechanic "because I enjoy working in the workshop". At the same time, he could also climb the career ladder a bit higher with a dual education.
He thinks it's a great thing that the industry is on board. "This allows me to make contacts", schmidt emphasized. He also sees good opportunities to realize his career goals with a company in the region. He has already learned that internships are included in the curriculum if a subject arouses a student's interest.

Doris leithner-bisani is running again

Doris leithner-bisani promised to do everything in her power to keep the market interesting for the young generation and to keep them in the area. This also includes the expansion and provision of high-speed DSL. That makes the market town more attractive and more homely. She will continue to act with diligence and deliberation in order to ensure successful politics in the next six years.

She is particularly proud of the fact that despite several tree removals, the debt at the end of 2014 was only 910000 euros and could be significantly reduced to 920 euros per capita.

The mayoress then also gave an outline of all the measures taken during the current legislative period. She expressed her special thanks to the honorary chairman and deputy mayor fred popp "for the great support". She regretted that he is no longer willing to run on the list of candidates for the market town council.

history on 140 pages

The village chronicle "grub and frenshof through the ages" was presented at a ceremony at the elementary school officially presented. Historian monika riemer-maciejonczyk has summarized the history of her hometown on 140 pages.
As mayor georg hollet explained, the burghers of grub and frenshof had met in the course of the village renewal to exchange and write down what was known from history. Old pictures were also collected. Intergenerational cooperation and painstaking research were carried out in the process. Hollet: "it's not easy to write thick books about the history of small towns. Nevertheless, lively and interesting contributions await the reader in our chronicle."
Riemer-maciejonczyk, herself a native of frenshofen, focused her attention on the historical origins of the city. According to his own statements, the preparation of the historical context was based exclusively on archives, files, written sources and thus on verifiable material. She was thus able to confirm the first naming of grub in 1278 for frenshof, the research revealed that the first written mention can be backdated by ten years, to 31.July 1530. 

Who pays for the study?

Christoph rustler is 17 and would like to leave as little as possible on his parents' pockets. "I think that's the way it should be." He works a job while going to school, even though he's running out of time. All the more scarce, the closer the abiturprufungen in the spring jerken. He is principled and does not want to abandon them even if he enrolls in business school in october. He has not yet made up his mind, but he is tempted by an apprenticeship. "In order to already have something firm in hand.", he says.

Education for all
As a student, he would probably be forced to die against his wishes, even though he continues to work part-time. He would be financially again more dependent on his parents. Expensive rents in bavarian cities, high cost of living, semester ticket – and tuition fees. "It's not easy, you can get rid of your money very quickly", says the bad kissinger. That's why many of his acquaintances didn't enroll at a university in bavaria, but went to thuringia and saxony. Education is cheaper there. Actually, however, should be freely accessible. "Schools don't cost anything", says rustler. Tuition fees exclude poorer people in his opinion.

"Tuition fees are socially selective", scolds sabine dittmar (SPD). The member of the state parliament from bad kissingen is a member of the local action alliance for the abolition of tuition fees. Together with seven other alliance partners, including the opposition parties, the german federation of trade unions (DGB) and the protestant church, she is campaigning in the district for the referendum, which is to be held in the city on 17 june. Up to 30. January runs bavaria-wide. With good prospects of success. "You can see from the diversity of the alliance partners how broad the support is among the population." Dittmar is confident he will be able to raise the required 950.000 signatures to be obtained. Opponents must officially register.
