Meeting of all HBLW Saalfelden participants
At the closing party, everyone at HBLW met in Saalfelden. At the beginning, director Petra Schlechter welcomed everyone present and wished them a lot of fun while searching for the treasures.
The song started
VS Dienten prepared a song about the climate, and then we heard a short story about pollution on our planet.
Are you trying to reduce waste in your daily life?
The story was told to those present
The story was about a marmot who found a pile of rubbish in front of the front door. School children explained to the climber how to reduce waste in their daily lives.
A world hit was made
VS Viehofen prepared two songs – in one, the students explained how our climate is changing, and above all why. Secondly, they sang the world hit “We are the world”.
The older ones supported the youngest
After the performances, the children were divided into small groups and each of them received a HBLW student mentor.
Tasks had to be solved throughout the school building
There were ten stations throughout the school building, at which primary school students had to solve various tasks – for each correctly solved task there was a letter.
The word solution contributed to the win
At the end of the station’s operation, the word “junior high school” should appear. Inside was a treasure chest with lots of surprises. The first group to find the solution may have selected something from the treasure chest.
The event was realized as a “Green Event”.
The culinary attraction of “Green Event” were the culinary culinary attractions of “Zielona Event” from the third classes of the five-year-old HBLW. Food for primary school students as well as their teachers and principals was held under the slogan “Pirate strong and healthy snack”.
The delicacies were conjured up from regional products
All the food used was sourced from regional suppliers – from seasonal vegetables and fruits from the organic farm Stechaubauer in Lenzing, to dairy products from “Mei Muich” from Zieferhof in Leogang and cheese from the farmer Sinnlehen, also from Leogang, to Fairtrade chocolate from Saalfeldner Weltladen .
Primary school students enjoyed the culinary diversity
The students themselves collected herbs in the school garden. Primary school students were very enthusiastic about the offer and could not hide their joy from the delicacies: “The food is delicious, we would like to try everything”.
Captain Hook won the treasure hunt
In addition to eating, the children focused on finding treasures – the “Captain Hook” group from the Viehofen primary school won along with group leader Maximilian Strasser from HBLW Saalfelden.
