Hallo! We are 19 students and three teachers travelling to Werder / Germany from the 16th of April until the 12th of May 2017. We will be hosted by the Ernst-Haeckel-Gymnasium Werder and are going to visit several historic places in Berlin, Potsdam and Bavaria. This is the 7th time a group from Lynfield is going to Germany and all students look forward to using their German language skills in authentic situations.
On Friday the students woke up in a white wonderland running outside to play in the snow and build their first snowman ever. Before we embarked on our journey back to Werder the group sang a song to thank the hostel staff for their hospitality. The very long bus trip was highlighted by some students running into the Manuel Neuer of New Zealand (Stefan Marinovic) who also plays for the German football club Unterhaching. He impressed Frau Zimmer with his perfect German and he was happy to pose for a photo with some of the students. We arrived in Werder tired but excited to spend more time with our host families.
