Additionally, we offer special music classes (orchestra) and projects on sustainability.As a Europe and grammar school, the König-Heinrich-Schule in Fritzlar/Germany is looking for new partner schools to corporate with. There are two projects we want to find new partners for:1. In a pan-European exchange project, called MSP (Multinational School Partnership), we have been involved with for over 25 years now. What is the exchange project (MSP) all about?In year eleven students (age group: 16-17) can participate in the multilateral project working together with partner schools from different European countries. Twice a year (spring and autumn) there are one-week-workshops in multinational groups taking place in the participating schools at the same time (lingua franca: English). Furthermore, schools can come up with a variety of topics they want to work on, e.g. “Our cultural heritage“ or “Sustainability“. During the weeks students are hosted by students of the country they are visiting and the other way around. Due to recent changes in their school boards or financial matters, two schools have left MSP recently or have decided to continue the work on a bilateral basis. However, our school, a Polish and a Hungarian school have worked together for years, but we want to extend the international network to build up bridges, make new friends and broaden the European spirit.2. We are looking for partners from the USA as we want to build up transcontinental school partnerships as well.
