Last weekend the Varsity Girls and Boys Basketball teams played in Hannover and Dresden. Despite the injuries and other medical problems, the players did a great job and finished 7th, although they had the shortest bench of the tournament. Congratulations to all & gute Besserung to the ones who were injured or ill. Thank you to the coaches Rali and Eric for their time and effort working with the Varsity Basketball teams this season.
Good job everyone!

Interschool Swim Gala!
The Interschool Swimming Competition for students in Grade 2 to 5 will take place this Saturday, 1 April, in Frankfurt. We will be taking twenty-eight students to the event and we know everyone will have a great time. Parents of those involved have been informed via email about the events their children will be swimming in. The coaches Mrs. Eckersley, Ms. Tudge, Ms. Prest and Markos are looking forward to a fabulous competition with our younger swimmers.
Elementary School Swimming Lessons
The current block of swimming lessons on Mondays and Fridays finishes today Friday, 31 March. Parents have been invited to attend at poolside for these sessions to see the progress their children have made. The next swimming courses (4 and 5) will start on Monday, 24 April and Friday, 28 April respectively. There are still a couple of places available if you are interested, but be quick to avoid disappointment. If you are interested, but you find there are no more places available when you register on Schoolbase, please send Mrs. Fischer an email and she can add you to the waiting list. Those registered will receive an email confirmation from Mrs. Fischer next week.
