Play, sports & movement throughout the day! Two hours of sports per school week are just the important basis for an active childhood at our elementary school. In grade 3 and 4, all children go to swimming lessons for half a year, where we can differentiate from beginner swimming to technique training for our excellent swimmers with our trained swimming teachers.

The tranquility refreshes and activates the body and mind.

In the open all-day program of our elementary school, your child will also find plenty of opportunities to participate in sports, games, dance or relaxation activities.
