English Project Weeks

It has become something like a sweet and very much appreciated tradition for our year-four students to take part in an English Project week in February.
This means a week of English only, a week spent with children from other classes, a week away from their regular teachers but with trainers from various parts of the English speaking world (from South Africa to Australia) and completely different and sometimes even astonishing backgrounds.

If you happen to see them walking along the corridors just ask them about their week and you will get feedback like „Great!“, „Such fun!“, „I haven’t realised my English is that good already.“

At the end of the week all 124 students show their fellow mates what they have been working on in their workshops (drama, photography, culture, …) .

School Uniform Day

What if we had school uniforms at our school? How would we feel? What would be different? What would it look like if everybody wore the same? Would we lose anything?

The English teachers of all 5th forms (Prof. Bichler, Eichhorn, Führer, Haider and Voß-Peichl) decided to make an experiment, to enable students to really undergo a change and live to see, what it is like to wear a uniform and not just read and talk about it. Thus, all students dressed smartly (boys in suits and girls in skirts and blouses ). All the looks were on them, what a feeling!     Fotos …

The Hound of the Baskervilles – Vienna’s English Theatre

DSC_0961The students of the 4th and 5th forms enjoyed the thrilling and entertaining play THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES on May 4th. The star detective Sherlock Holmes and his good friend Dr Watson solved one their most popular cases and found the murderer of Sir Charles Baskerville near Grimpen Mire  (in our Kolomanisaal).  Everybody had a jolly good time.

Robbery at Silver Mansion

Sherlock Holmes better beware because there is a new detective in town!

Am Freitag, den 28.4. stellten die Schülerinnen und Schüler der 1A ihr schauspielerisches Talent bei einer englischen Aufführung unter Beweis. Nachdem sie engagiert eigene Drehbücher verfasst hatten, brillierten sie auf der Bühne und lösten die kniffligsten Fälle. Schlussendlich konnten alle gestohlenen Halsketten und das Familienvermögen wieder an die ursprünglichen Besitzer zurückgegeben werden.

La La Land

On Tuesday, March 7, the English Talents and parts of classes 4e and 3d spent an entertaining afternoon together. After the train ride and some refreshments we watched the fairy-tale like Oscar-winning movie „La La Land“ in cinema paradiso. Opinions about the film varied from „fantastic“ to „disappointing“.
