Class 5a take a trip to Malaysia

May 24th, 2015 • During our project week on „Dealing with Diversity“, class 5a were allowed to visit the Malaysian Embassy.

Our children took part in a special education program for school classes there. On this day, they learned a lot about the country and its cultural diversity and had a lot of fun in the process.

Firstly, Data Siti Hawa, the wife of the Ambassador of Malaysia, greated everyone with a few words in a very friendly manner and gave a small presentation about the country; Malaysia. After that, the Ambassador of Malaysia, Dato Zulkifli Adnan, gave the honor along with a short speech. Afterwards, the children had the opportunity to get his autograph.

The programme of the day began with six different stations, where the children could try out typical Malaysian activities, like, for example, cook and taste traditional specialties, various traditional hand crafts, repainting paintings that are typical to the country and playing typical Malaysian games. Then we were invited to lunch, consisting of fried Mihun noodles and cake and everybody, even the teachers, received a small gift bag. After many, many photos were taken, the children of the 5a class were given a gift of a cuddly toy (a long-nosed monkey) as a mascot in memory of this fantastic visit.

The children were high-spirited at the end of this special day and learned a lot about this tropical country in South East Asia. All of the students even wrote letters to the embasy to thank them personally.
