The pupils of the Dog Class (third and fourth year/autistic pupils) learned in class about the Roman Empire. One day they started to a very special excursion.

And here are the challenges of the day and the winning team: A myterious letter in a bottle reached the class… Designing a…read more

  Hello to Everybody! Greetings from Heinrich-Böll-Schule. We already managed the biggest challenge of this winter in Germany: the influenza. That’s the reason for the long silence.
