Easter also includes a hen!

Easter also includes a hen!

Winter is on its last legs, and spring has already arrived in the city of westphalia. And that in the form of the coburg brunnenstrabe. This is created year after year by schools and youth institutions from the city and the region. During these days, ten inner-city fountains will once again be transformed into true masterpieces.
"We care a lot about the action, says city manager annette kolb. But to their regret, not quite so many schools and youth facilities are taking part this year. "We are finding it increasingly difficult to find players. The schools can hardly take the time for such projects because of the tighter schedules. That is a pity." Nevertheless, the easter fountains should go on. "In the future we will continue to try to get as many participants as possible. There are even already commitments for the brunnenstrabe 2014", tells annette kolb.
The school at the hofgarten had a special idea for its fountain in webergasse. Educator stephanie stadler says: "we wanted a concept in which every schoolchild could be involved. That was the most valuable thing to me." Marcel, a student at the school am hofgarten, explains how work was done: "to easter belong easter bunnies and easter eggs. We made the rabbits out of slats. And because the eggs come from hens, we put a hen in the middle of the picture. The heibt wilma." The fountain in webergasse is adorned by a fence made of 36 wooden slats. Four to five schoolchildren at a time were allowed to turn a latte into their own easter bunny and give it a nose, ears, face and a name. There was one guideline for the design: "the children could only do what they brought the necessary materials for", tells teacher christine geub.
The 36 easter bunnies have crazy names and faces. So there is the rabbit james bond, who is equipped with a suit and a toy gun or the rabbit michael jordan, who sits in a wheelchair and has a basketball in his hand. Another hare hires speedy gonzales. "Because it is so fast", explains marcel, who designed this rabbit with his friends. "We have let the children implement their own ideas and have not corrected anything. The children have different motor skills and have helped each other as a result. Severely handicapped children have, for example, taken on foundation work. So really each of our 120 students has contributed something to this community work", emphasizes stephanie stadler.
The gymnasium albertinum has its fountain according to the motto "upper franconia – eastern franconia designs. Self-painted pictures of typical upper franconian food and drink such as schaufele, beer or wine adorn the fountain in front of the albertinum. "The easter fountain campaign is a symbol for us to say goodbye to winter", explains teacher martin spichaler from the albertinum grammar school.
