A secondary school in Liverpool is the sixth school in the UK to become a partnership with the Goethe-Institut London.
St Hilda’s CE High School has joined Schools: Partners for the Future (PASCH) which aims to create and strengthen global networks with partner schools, with special links to Germany.
The Goethe-Institut and the German Embassy London attended St Hilda’s to officially launch the partnership, with speeches by Dr Susanne Frane of the German Embassy and Dr Georgia Herlt from The Goethe-Institut London.
The speeches were followed by a rendition of ‘She Loves You’, performed in German by the school choir.
The Goethe-Institut is the cultural institute of the Federal Republic of Germany, which promotes knowledge of German abroad and encourages international cultural exchange. The institute has around 600 PASCH partners in schools worldwide.
Pupils spoke of their enjoyment of learning to speak German before the partnership was officially sealed.
