Saint Martin’s Festival

The famous German song about St. Martin echoes during the traditional Martin procession, which took place on November 14th on the ground of the German Embassy School. Although there is no snow and cold winds in Addis Ababa, many children and their parents can experience, how a real horse rider shares his red cloak with a poor beggar (according to the St. Martin story). In memory of the exemplary deed of Saint Martin, Weckmänner are shared. Many thanks also to all parents and teachers who helped organizing this beautiful event!


13 students of the DBSAA did it and managed to qualify for the 2nd round of the mathematics competition “Matheolympiade”. Now they had to show their mathematics skills once again. We wish everyone good luck for the results.

Career Counselling  

Mrs. Birgit Tschense, career counsellor at the Federal Employment Agency in Düsseldorf, Germany has been visiting our school for the fourth time this week. She is working here in an honorary capacity and we thank her very much for this effort! Mrs. Tschense has been consulting our students of grade 9 to 12 for a whole week. Additionally, a parents’ information evening took place. Mrs. Babette Theil has been organizing this event as part of her job as studies and career counselor at DBSAA. 

School mugs – new edition

The parents‘ council of German Embassy School has again produced some beautiful mugs. They have chosen the artwork from students together with the art teacher Isabel Tesfazghi and teachers of the primary school. Many mugs have already been sold on the St. Martins Festival. Another chance, to get one of these highly desired collectors’ items are the German Charity Christmas Bazaar on December 3rd and the school Christmas celebration on December 15th. In between mugs can be also bought for 160 Birr each from Sarah Kohls at the secretariat. It is a great Christmas gift for the whole family. Thanks a lot to the parents’ council for the initiative!

Germany Day

Our school carried out for the first time a project day called “Germany Day” to mark the  „German Unity Day“ which is a German national holiday. The project day took place on Monday, October 2nd and our students took part in various projects like “An Image of Germany”, “Typically German”, “PlasticFanstatic”, “Contemporary Witnesses” and “The German Forest”. All projects were presented in the gym to everybody else. The German Ambassador, Brita Wagener, as well as our head of school, Monika Biegel, gave welcoming remarks to the school community. Afterwards everybody enjoyed a typical German lunch prepared by Aster Wollenberg. Big thanks to our organizers and all participants. 

Election Party

German Ambassador Brita Wagener and Mrs Biegel, the Head of the German Embassy School, jointly invited to an “Election Party”, on the occasion of Germany’s federal elections. The event took place at the gym of the German Embassy School on Sunday, September 24th, 2017. A live broadcast of the German election coverage was available and sausages and drinks were for sale – and many guests took part in vote in a “fun election”.

Almost everybody dressed up in traditional Ethiopian clothes. All parents prepared a divers and very delicious buffet – Thanks a lot for your commitment!
