Over the past two weeks we have enjoyed welcoming the return of the Leibniz Privatschule (Private School) from Germany. It has been a tradition for several years that Leibniz visits King’s. We are pleased to have the largest group we’ve ever had visit us in 2023.
Along with Queen’s High School, we welcomed 23 boys and 12 girls in week one, and 21 boys and 16 girls in week two.
Along with their three teachers the students engaged in an array of classes over the week. The teachers and students of King’s supported their participation in several practical learning opportunities such as Digital Technology.
Food and Nutrition
Chemistry, Hard Materials Technology
Football Performance, Touch and Rugby skills
Isaac Hensman, Matu Pene and several students guided our visitors in the learning of the Haka. An experience the Leibniz students embraced well.
While the Leibniz students are in New Zealand for one month we are the only school they visit on their journey. We are incredibly proud of our long standing relationship with the teachers and students at the Leibniz Private School from Germany and look forward to ongoing visits.
A special thanks goes out to the students at King’s for their chaperoning around the school, especially Richie Diamond, Max Poeschel, Quinten Holland and Huib Broek to name a few and of course this would not be possible without our teachers. Their endless enthusiasm in hosting our guests talking about and sharing some of the wonderful learning opportunities available to the students at King’s. Thank you.
