Completely different but just as exiting: DHPS welcomes 2021 first-graders

For 82 inquisitive children, the big day has finally come: The start of school at the Deutsche Höhere Privatschule Windhoek (DHPS).

With an entirely different programme under the corona distance and hygiene regulations, yet with the same excitement and bulging school cones, the first graders started their school career one class at a time on 25 January 2021.
The class teachers welcomed the little stars of the day and immediately took them to their classrooms at the Kreutzberger building. There, the DHPS choir class gave them a virtual welcome with the school anthem, members of the Stadtmission passed on their blessing to the youngest learners and the teachers allowed the newcomers a glimpse into the school activities and everyday school life.
Meanwhile, DHPS Principal Kristin Eichholz and Head of the Primary Section Ms Conni Hecht welcomed the equally excited parents at the DHPS auditorium.
A highlight for the new first graders and their parents was the welcome video compiled by grade 2 learners: "Jule” the butterfly guided them through the classroom - it was a colourful journey filled with laughter, maths, reading and learning.
We thank our second graders and teachers for their dedication and preparations to organise the traditional introductory programme for the first graders in a different, but just as exciting way under the new circumstances.

We are happy that the DHPS family of 2021 is complete now; wish our first graders, parents, teachers and all other learners a great start to another somewhat different school year.
