Marion kruger-hundrup the young ladies in the old auditorium of the maria-ward schools are all members of the "SMV": the school’s student council. Emma bubmann (14), lena finzel (14), francesca heilmann (16), martina schmitt (14) and edanur soylemez (16) show that they take responsibility seriously. Very serious.
And not only for their fellow students in the secondary school and grammar school, but also for people outside the school walls: the tough ladies present symbolic checks to representatives of social associations for children in the bamberg region. The total sum amounts to a proud 10500 euros – from the proceeds of the school christmas market 2018.
"It’s fun to do something good!", says francesca about the whole action. Emma calls her motto for the donation handover: "together – organizing something for each other"!" And edanur also praises: "everyone helps out! The idea came from us schoolgirls, which is also in line with our school." For principal stephan reheuser, head of the maria-ward-gymnasium, this meeting in the morning break is a "good opportunity to show what is important in our society". Namely to exercise responsibility for those who are in difficult situations.
The liaison teachers marga braun, daniela hummer and katrin rebhan as well as erika spulak, vice-principal of the secondary school, do not miss the opportunity to be present at the presentation of the check. How they supported their schoolgirls in the collection of donations at the christmas market. Baked goods and decorative items were sold, a flea market and cafeteria were organized, and raffles and performances were held. In class, the girls learned about challenging projects and chose "their" projects from: "all are really already!", says emma, who diplomatically doesn’t want to emphasize a favorite.
The representatives of the association are all very happy about the money "which makes our work easier", how to hear.
