Der Vorstand der Stiftung Warentest, Hubertus Primus, zeigte sich begeistert vom Eifer der Schülereinsendungen: „Oft kommen die Jugendlichen zu wirklich erstaunlichen Erkenntnissen.“ So erwähnte er speziell auch den zweiten Beitrag der Schlossbergschule (Klasse 9Ma) wegen ihrer kreativen Testideen. Diese hatte unter anderem Fallversuche mit Schoko-Nikoläusen durchgeführt, um deren Belastbarkeit zu testen. Immerhin haben sie es damit auch noch unter die besten 50 Teilnehmer geschafft und ein Jahresabo der Zeitschrift Test für jeden Schüler gewonnen.
Class 9Mb has won 1000 Euro in a testing competition.
The fist flower boxes have found adoptive parents meanwhile. Two of them found a new home infront of the museum, two others at the entrance of the Mutterturm (Mothertower). Their brothers and sisters have to wait some more weeks till they can move to the city center.
Two 9th forms of our school had participated in this years’s round of “Jugend testet (Youngsters are testing)”. One of them had proved christmas sweets. The other one had tested childrens playgrounds in urban area. Very enthusiastic they now heard, that they were chosen into the last three groups wich have dealed with the supply of services. Two students with their class teacher are invited to come to Berlin, to receive their price there. We are very proud of them, whatever the colour of the medal will be.
Students of 8th form have built flower-boxes. These have been planted by the gardening group. Stickers made by students of 7th form remember, that we work without turf. On Thursday 6.6. the boxes have been presented to the mayer. We hope know, that he will find a good place for them. Maybe at the new main square?

Inspired and motivated for work
Separated into three groups we learned a lot about our favourite professions. We could do practical work and show our abilities. The technical group produced keychains made of wood and metal with the help of a silver smith. For the lunch break the social group prepared a two course menu and decorated the table for it. Last not least the economy group documented the results of the day with a flyer. Finally all groups presented their work. Thanks to all, who have made this experience possible.
(A report of class 8a)
Benefited by good watering especially caused by heavy rainfalls during the last days and several sunny hours with comfortable temeperatures our flowers have developed very well. So it was time for panting vegetables. Some potatoes were “hidden”, our artificial beck was reactivated, the remainings of winter in the bed of herbage were removed and the first sunlowers could leave the greenhouse- in our case the chemistry lab. They hope now for longer springtime temperatures.
Hard working mothers prepared again a healthy snack for school break. Thanks for this commitment for students and teachers! Nothing remained on the tables. Obviously all had been were very pleased about the food.
