On November 17, 2017 Grade 11 students Ojas Mandlekar and Leon Staufer (in the picture with Dr. Norbert Lammert, former Bundestagspräsident) and Dr. Hoffmann went to the Politische Club in Tutzing, the last of the three sessions throughout the year. The Politische Club is a high-profile meeting of numerous political leaders and a selected audience. Throughout the weekend, there were various speeches, each followed by a discussion. The topic for this session was “Germany after the elections”.
Like last year, students were selected based on the best political essays from a pool of applicants. Dr. William Sheldon, Board member of the FIS, donated a prize that sponsors the entire visit for two students, twice a year, giving them a great insight into the political working of Germany, allowing them to network and discuss with political leaders and other people also interested in politics.
We would like to thank Dr. William Sheldon for allowing us this great opportunity.
