Students investigate German products in Mount Gambier

Recently, the Year 10 German class went on an excursion to the local shopping precinct to investigate German products and engineering in the local area. Students visited Carlin and Gazzard to find out about Mercedes Benz cars, the Terry White pharmacy to learn more about the German Robotic Pharmaceutical Dispenser and Bannisters Shoe Repair shop to see some of their German made workshop
machines in action. They even had the opportunity to use one of them. The class then hunted for German foods and electrical goods at Harvey Norman and She’s Apples. For lunch they enjoyed schnitzel packs and mini berliners.

Year 8 students cook German cakes and desserts

Year 8 German students have been learning about German cakes and desserts. On Monday of week 9, all three Year 8 German classes competed against each other in an Obstboden (fruit tart) decorating competition. After viewing some German Obstboden images they worked in pairs to use a limited supply of fresh fruits to decorate a flan base. The lucky winners received German chocolates as prizes. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed this creative cultural experience. Of course, eating the flans at the end of the lesson was the ‘icing on the cake’.
