International School Sindelfingen opens for refugees

Monday, January 8, 2018

Happy 2018!

In the first two classes of the Sindelfingen International School alone, students speak more than twelve languages. Before the Christmas break, the school (headed by Sarah Kupke) opened its doors for refugees, who are housed in the neighborhood on the Goldberg. "We established contacts when the “Landratsamt” leased the former DRC building for the temporary accommodation of refugees," says Sarah Kupke.

Meanwhile, the city of Sindelfingen now uses the house for the temporary accommodation of about 40 people, including many children. The International School organized an afternoon of crafts with the neighboring children before Christmas and plans to regularly offer the schoolyard on Hallenser Straße in Sindelfingen as a playground for the children from Waldenbucher Straße.
