More about the school!

So... here I am again... finally!

And here I am with the coffee mug (Krug) which my 7th grade (7. Klasse) gave me as a "going-away" present (Abschiedsgeschenk).


I'm sorry it has been so long since my last report. I've been quite busy and did not know what to write.

So I thought I'd tell you more about the school.

The ACS is over 100 years old. This year the school has over 900 pupils: from Kindergarten to 12th grade (Klasse).

There are many after-school activities. The school has its own sports teams. Boys and girls have basketball, volleyball, tennis, badminton and other teams. They play against teams from other schools. The teams' name is "ACS Knights" (Ritter).

The school has very good facilities for sports: two outdoors playing fields, a gymnasium (Sportshalle) and even a fitness room!

They also have a music band. It played during lunch on Thursday.

The students arrive at school at 8:00 and the first class (Stunde) begins at 8:10. They have a short break (kurze Pause) from 10:40 to 11:00, and the high school students have a lunch break from 1:30 pm to 2:00 pm.

Students can buy lunch at a cafeteria (Imbiss) at the school.

School ends at 3:15 pm.

I live only a five-minute walk (5 Min. zu Fuss) from the school.

Here is a picture of where I live.

I live on the first floor on the left hand side.

Well, I think that's enough for now.
Let me know what else you might like to know about the school, Beirut or Lebanon!
