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.

Primary school students listened carefully to what had to be done at each station.

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.

The 3rd graders also took care of the culinary well-being of the guests.

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 closing ceremony of the KEM school project was held at HBLW Saalfelden.

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”.

Primary school in Dienten brought a song about the vibe.

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 .

In the kitchen, 3-year-olds prepared culinary delights for the break.

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”.
