Climate debate
Professor-Franz-Bunke-Schule Schwaan
13th April 2018

In the morning of 13th April we, students of grade 8, were very excited.
After working on the topic climate change for weeks which also included teaching students of grade 6 about the topic and work on an interesting art project we had prepared a debate about climate change.
We had invited a lot of guests like mister Antelmann, the representative from town hall, mister Pabusch, our headmaster, Mister Dawberg, our artist who teached us to create art works and lots of other guests.

The main topic was to discuss how our school can change things to contribute to save our environment.
We represented our ideas and had an interesting and open discussion.
Some of our ideas were easy to realize. So the replacement of old light bulbs had already begun years ago. We also wanted to start a better waste sorting system next schoolyear and need some money for that, make sure that no paper goes to the other waste baskets because we can sell used paper! We want to use recycled paper for all purposes, also for all the copies of course. The town is also planning a new energy saving heating system. Movement sensors should be a standart in all public buildings like our school.
Students should use buses instead of cars. We are planning to talk to parents in the morning and ask them why they take their children to school by car. Some of them have reasons of course.
At the end of our climate debate we were happy and satisfied with the results.smiley

How to become a good farmer
24 students of grade 6 went to explore farm life and work

We can read about farming in books or on the internet. But we wanted to find out in reality what it really means to be a good farmer.
On May 4th 2018 we went to Agrarbetrieb Meiners-Hobel GbR in Horst near Bützow.
There we started visiting the farm area and first of all the calf rearing station. Especially our boys wanted to stay there all day.

But there was more interesting stuff to explore. We were impressed by the huge milking system and how easy it worked. The cows seemed to use it as a wellness area.

The most interesting part was the biogas plant. So the farm can produce huge amounts of energy which is an important step to stop climate change. Production does not depend on fossile fuels, it is always the same amount of “raw material” and so the energy circle is closed.
The best way of selling farm products is to create something own like homemade cheese. The farm includes a small cheese factory which produces a lot of dairy goods.
In an organic garden centre a lot of vegetable is produced too.
At the end of our day we could produce and taste our own cheese which was delicious. We could also try all the other farm products and could hear that they are sold in markets not far from the farm. That’s what we are going to tell our parents-buy local food more often and save our environment.
The girls are making cheese.smiley
