In the new “cultural heritage” centre, a one-day workshop in traditional culinary art took place for the higher classes of the Academy. It is well known that Indian cuisine uses a variety of spices, which need some know-how to develop their taste and then keep it until serving. The students got to know basics like the preparation of rotis, the typical flat breads, Punjabi dishes and South Indian cuisine. They tried it extensively, sliced it, prepared and prepared it, learnt it in front of each other, and of course they also ate the boiled food in the end. Learning for life” can also look like this.

After the heat of the summer had become bearable in the meantime, the first cross-country race of the Academy took place at the end of September. The course covered a number of kilometers and led into the surroundings of Kirpal Sagar. The runners obviously gave their all to reach the finish line. Sport, joy and cheerfulness are obviously infectious. So some of the inhabitants of Kirpal Sagar did not want to miss at least a part of the course.

For the new section of the Upper School 2019/2021 at the Gymnasium Freyung in Germany a project seminar was offered, which deals with the creation of video clips on the topic of first aid, which will be used at the Academy. The suggestion came from the first aid course “Schüler retten Leben”, which took place at the Academy in 2017. Two school paramedics from Freyung took part as instructors, see also the report in the section Activities/School Paramedics. The equipment for distance learning will be used in the project seminar.
Now it is clear that enough students will participate in Freyung in order to be able to go into the detailed arrangement of the seminar. We are already curious about the experiences of the students.

In classes 11 and 12, the Academy offers several branches, including the “medical branch”, which prepares students for scientific and medical studies. Today, 11th grade students were in the hospital to get to know further measures in addition to first aid. One of the nurses guided the group through the admission ward. Practical exercises were then held, including blood pressure measurements.
