Farewells are a part of life, even if people, habits or customs that one has grown fond of are gladly kept. Farewells are usually very emotional, and this became very clear at the graduation ceremony of the abt knauer elementary school in weismain.
This is how christa burkhardt said goodbye after 37 years in the school service, which cost principal heike witzgall a few drinks. Since 1982, the popular padagogue has been an important cornerstone of the facility.
Ute chapple introduced the small ceremony with the flute group. The dance performance by the fourth-grade girls was a splash of color.
Roses and many good wishes
First heike witzgall said goodbye to the teacher trainee natalie stuhler. Roses and best wishes for the future were given to christa burkhardt on her way to retirement. "Thank you for the good time and your good deeds here", it was sung in a self-written song.
