Dear parents, dear pupils in years 5 – 8,
Stefanie Hoefler, a renowned German children’s and youth book author, is going to visit us on 25. March 2019. She will read to your children from her books “Mein Sommer mit Mucks” and “Tanz der Tiefseequalle” and will be available for discussions about her texts. Most German classes are currently in the process of reading her books. 
The German department has decided to join forces with the Library and offer your children a translation competition to go along with the reading.
