Kapla master builders at Eggenberg primary school

21.11.2022|

Kapla building in our free times is all about reaching for the sky! With several thousand pieces of Kapla wood, there are no limits to the creative possibilities: building is done in height, in width, angular or round and even around the children. With a lot of imagination and perseverance, new constructions and works of art are created, which the children themselves marvel at.

From Year 5 onwards, experimentation is an essential part of science and technology lessons at the Gymnasium Eggenberg: we ask questions of nature and explore the answers through experimentation!

Experiment means: touching, trying out, microscoping, dissecting, collecting, measuring or also looking at: in the Deutsches Museum, in the zoo, in the Isar wetlands, in the meadow, forest and school garden – also building a pinhole camera, a hand-held spectroscope or rockets, letting balloons rise, melting iron …

Conclusions are then drawn from the experiences and observations. Thus force and movement, electricity and magnetism, light and sound, air and water, matter and life begin to become understandable.

The experiments are more differentiated and abstract with increasing age; if they fail, we learn from the mistakes.

But the following always applies: Whoever sees and hears something remembers it – whoever does something understands it!

Joint start into school life

Joyfully and full of expectation, the new students of the Eggenberg Elementary School have started their first school year.

For the past year, the elementary school has been located together with the high school on the Villa Eggenberg campus. The close proximity has proven its worth: The togetherness, the well-kept rooms and the many play and recreational opportunities in the shared park promote calm, concentrated learning for young and old alike. The little ones also enjoy playing with the big ones – and experience from them how to approach the Abitur without fear and successfully.

Graduates passed the Abitur with a brilliant average: 1.7

Beaming faces: 15 students at the Gymnasium Eggenberg received their Abitur results in the Augustinus foyer. For 10 graduates of the successful year, there is a 1 in front of the decimal point on the certificate of completion, and one student even passed the exams with a fantastic grade of 1.0.

“We are happy and satisfied that all of our high school graduates came through the exams so relaxed and well. The family atmosphere on our school campus has made a decisive contribution to this. In the meantime, the pupils of the Eggenberg primary school are also at home here. The togetherness on campus is really something special. And the result of the high school graduates shows that everyone involved in the upper school did a wonderful job,” says Head Teacher Dr. Rudolf Kutschera.

From class to band

Lunchtime concert in May

For the second time this school year, the entire 7th grade became a band. Encouraged   by their success with “Traffic Lights” before Christmas, this time they performed “Open Up” by Matt Simons. They rehearsed and practised together until the vocals, rhythm and sound were perfect.

All the students contributed to a polished performance with their disciplined rehearsals. A special feature this time: Mr. Schäfer, a student teacher and intern, joined in with his electric violin and supported the class band in their performance. The audience of teachers and students from grades 3 to 6 thanked the 7th grade with roaring applause for this refreshing lunchtime concert.

Everyone wins when playing

In the park of Villa Eggenberg, games are played on all levels of the grounds and at all ages: on the terraces, jumping rope in groups and Round the World ping pong, in front of the fountain, chess with knee-high pieces, in the large clearings of the park, soccer and basketball, and again and again with great pleasure throw-off games such as gagaball.

The older students at the secondary school think they know where the secondary school students’ joy in playing games comes from: the elementary school students brought it with them.

This is actually due to the fact that the educators enjoy discovering new games.  They are always offering new games of tactics or games of skills such as stilt walking, diabolo, juggling balls, badminton, volleyball, Viking chess or spikeball, to find out with the classes what is fun.

Playing has an impact on the entire school day with its passions, lightness, ambition in a good sense and, above all, its contagious cheerfulness.

A new school year and a new school

01.10.2021|

Both our primary and secondary school students have made a good start to the new school year. For our primary school, this is the first school year on the Villa Eggenberg campus in Icking after the move from Solln, and the students are already very much at home.

The connection between the two schools is expressed in our new, related names: “Grundschule Eggenberg”(our primary school) and “Gymnasium Eggenberg” (our secondary school). The names reflect the unified learning path from the first grade to the Abitur (the German university entrance exam). 

The two schools, as of 2021 geographically consolidated on one campus, and pursuing the single aim of excellence in education, will together be known as St Anna Colleg.
