During the past school term our school participated in a competition for the title of "Umweltschule in Europa" (ecological school in Europe). The documentations published on these sites enabled us to gain this title granted by DGU (German Society for Ecological Education)!

Today we are facing an increasing loss of indigenous species due to commercial farming and the planning of towns and habitats on the drawing boards of landscape architects and town planners. As a result, the ‘naturalness’ of our environment is vanishing.
According to Germany’s federal law for nature conservancy (Bundesnaturschutzgesetz, §1)
- "the effectiveness of the natural,
- the usability of natural goods,
- flora and fauna,
- and the diversity, uniqueness and beauty of nature,
are to be sustained."
In order to meet these demands, but also to be able to participate in the shaping of the school premises, pupils who had chosen biology as an compulsory selective subject decided to enclose the school garden by means of natural fences and hedges, thus increasing the amount of species on the school premises. Three teams were formed which came up with their own ideas for the project. They undertook research on the Internet, raised funds among their fellow pupils, asked teachers to contact the local forest warden, the friends of the school and the district authorities for nature conservancy and green areas in order to find assistance. Moreover, they found a private sponsor from the field of gardening and landscaping (gvs) who generously supported the project.
