Das STG Melk bietet seit einigen Jahren einen Schüleraustausch mit dem Rosebank College in Sydney, Australien. Aufgrund der Coronabeschränkungen war eine Durchführung in den letzten beiden Jahren nicht möglich. Daher initiierte unsere australische Partnerschule ein virtuelles Benedictine Exchange Program an dem mehrer Schulen teilnehmen konnten. Dabei erarbeitete jede Schule in einem Projektvideo die Auswirkungen der Coroanpandemie auf Schule und Gesellschaft. Der Beitrag unserer Schule wurde von der 7A eingereicht.
Speaking English six lessons a day? Learning grammar while having fun? Writing poems and stories, singing songs and acting out sketches? Talking to natives from all over the world?
If you can answer these questions with a YES then you are definitely one of 142 fourth formers taking part in this year’s ENGLISH PROJECT WEEK! What a blast!
Students of 6C and 6D and their teachers Prof. Führer, Prof. Bichler and Prof. Eichhorn are looking forward to a mind-blowing week in Dublin/City. Share our experience by reading our blogs, just click here.
Stunning photos and informative blog entries on various topics are waiting for you!!!
After reading the new class reader, the graphic novel Frankenstein, and talking about various aspects dealt with in this classic novel, class 6a received bags full of „junk“ – paper clips, pieces of felting, toy eyes, corks, straws, dressings etc. The task was to create a creature of their own and invent a life story for them. Enthusiastically class 6a started to play creators! We are looking forward to the presentations and „Book of Lives“.
The 8th form students who are especially talented in English again participated in the international Cambridge Advanced Certificate exam in Vienna and reached outstanding results. With 18 high qualified candidates, who all passed a written as well as an oral exam reaching level C1 or C2 in English, the school was again extremely successful.
Candidates: Blanca Lechner (8A), Jakob Enengl (8B), Anna Schrattenholzer (8B), Linda Gosch, Katharina Hackner, Alexandra Heuböck, Laura Kiefer, Hannah Krautinger, Sarah Lang, Julia Mistelbacher, Alexa Neswadba, Marie Pichlbauer (all 8C), Katja Baumgartner, Georg Brack, Valentin Dirnegger, Paul Kerschbaumer, Jonas Schmutzer, Christina Sturath (all 8D).
On April 5th, 2018 the 6A and 6B classes were accompanied by the Americans on their voyage to Ireland. With Herr Eichhorn and Frau Stadlmann to lead the excursion, we set off on our 7 day journey. Between classes at the English School in Dublin, we saw many main attractions, including Guinness Storehouse, Temple Bar, Bray, Glendalough, Croke Park Stadium, and Wicklow Jail, not to forget the amazing cliffs in Howth. Not only did we get to visit Ireland, we also got to stay with host families, which gave us the full Irish experience. Overall, the trip was fantastic, and future classes should look forward to this opportunity. Photos…

„Dublin is a city apart, a place of whimsy, imagination and enormous fun. Here the word craic is supreme in all its forms – spoken, written or sung.“ (source)
Students of 6A and 6B, together with their English teachers Mag. Angela Stadlmann (6B) and Mag. Johannes Eichhorn (6A), hope to experience the great „craic“ – and YOU can do so, too.

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, …) .
