Kepnock High hosts Germany Day

RED, gold and black were prominent at Kepnock State High School when 10 schools from around the region visited for a German Day.

The students from both primary and high schools were treated to music from German rappers Nico Suave and Damion Davis, as well as a speech from German exchange student Chantel Seel.

Chantel, 16, is half way through her 10-month exchange to Kepnock State High School.

“I spoke about how life is in Germany and what we do every day,” she said.

Kepnock school captain Stephanie Peters, who has been studying German for six years, said she really enjoyed the German Day.

“I just love the support the school gives to us to learn German and also being able to share that with students from primary schools.”

Stephanie said she enjoyed the German language as it was very similar to English.

Kepnock German teacher Josie Nembach said the day gave students the opportunity to look at learning German in a different way.

“It’s not so easy for us to take the kids to Germany so we try and bring a little part of the country here to the school,” she said.
