Sharing The Festive Spirit
The most touching moment I experienced this week was when I accompanied our grade 6 to 8 MYP students to the SenVital home for the elderly here in Kleinmachnow. Our students, who are part of the Service Family “Joy of Music”, had been rehearsing Spanish and American Songs with Mr Lopez for the last 7 weeks. Ms Giegerich’s German class, who had been practising traditional German songs, joined in as well.
Our students introduced themselves in German and talked briefly about their home country, before the concert began. To see how many smiles the songs brought to the members of the audience was lovely to see. The BBIS students really enjoyed that many of the SenVital residents joined them for the two German songs at the end of the performance. When Mrs Friedrich from SenVital thanked our students for their concert and asked whether they could come back for another concert in Spring, they happily agreed.
