The Hallbergmoos high school students also survived the Corona school year well - and now they have graduated.
- It was no ordinary school year - and yet the graduates of the Hallbergmoos Middle School mastered it.
Of the 40 students in the ninth grade, 33 took the qualifying secondary school leaving certificate and 25 successfully passed the exams.
In preparatory class 10V2, all students passed the secondary school leaving certificate.
"Test alarm" survived well
In his closing speech for the ninth and tenth grades, headmaster Rudolf Weichs recalled the fire alarm that had gone off shortly before the end of the school year.
Both students and teachers reacted in an exemplary manner.
For some time it was unclear whether it was a sample or a real emergency.
The fire brigade and police have moved in - until it turned out that a student only wanted to test how tight the glass of a push-button alarm is.
"But why am I telling this story at your discharge ceremony?", Weichs asked the audience, to give the answer himself shortly afterwards.
"Quite simply because many situations and pictures remind me of your school career."
Most of the routes in the school career ran without any special incidents.
Now and then there was a test alarm in the truest sense of the word - for example in German, math or English.

“At some point, however, about a year and a half ago, we all headed towards a situation that could no longer be resolved routinely as in the usual daily routine.
There were many situations where nobody knew whether it was still a 'test alarm' or whether it was a serious dangerous situation. "Corona had thrown everything upside down - but letting yourself get down was not an option, the headmaster emphasized.
"Demonstrated great personal responsibility"
"It was a pleasure to hear from your teachers, how you hung yourselves in at home and showed a great deal of personal responsibility," said Weichs praising the students. The results of the tests are proof of this. “You continued to cultivate friendships via digital channels, supported each other and positively strengthened each other. We teachers are extremely proud of that. "But there was also praise for the behavior of the young people in the pandemic:" You have declared your solidarity with the somewhat older people who had to be protected from this virus. "
Although the crisis is not entirely over, Weichs encouraged the audience to look forward with optimism.
On behalf of the entire college, he wished them all the best for the future.
The headmaster, who is now sending his protégés into a new phase of life, concluded his speech with the words: “I wish that your goals and desires will come true when you go out to work or continue to go to school.
Stay as you are and keep a lot of humor.
A lot of things are easier in life, even if it should 'burn' again - whether for real or just in a test alarm! "
Popular prep class
By the way: For the next school year, the middle school has over 50 registrations for preparatory class 10V1. "We will take in around 40 of these pupils, so for the first time since the preparatory classes were set up, we can create two entrance classes 10V1," said the school principal, Weichs. This also documents the success story of this opportunity for a high school diploma. “Even after the qualification, there are different ways to do this,” says Weichs. "One of them is available at the Hallbergmoos Middle School and is used excellently."
