So now the time has come: The relocation of the Schongau secondary school to the college building and the container facility has begun. The entire administration already has a new place.
Schongau – Last Thursday, a notice was posted on the door of the old building stating that the secretariat and rectorate are now located on the first floor of the college building. Headmaster Frank Pfaffenberger summed it up succinctly as follows: "We have already achieved a lot."
By the way: Everything from the region is now also available in our regular Schongau newsletter.
The Schongau building yard had arrived a day earlier than planned and was very energetically at work. "I was really impressed, they accepted every challenge," said Pfaffenberger. "The effort was greater than at least I thought."

And it's not just a matter of lugging the moving boxes, everything has to be put back in its place and practically put away afterwards. This was ensured by Anja Wörnzhofer in the secretariat. Jesse Frank from an IT company in Schongau helped to make sure that all the technology was working again, making the final touches at lunchtime. "Everything was very well prepared," Pfaffenberger said. The school was only offline for an hour, he estimates, "if at all." From telephony to business e-mails, everything was up and running again within a very short time.
Artworks and project works
The pupils also helped – as far as the lessons allowed – especially in the functional rooms such as the physics hall. "Everything we need for the curriculum has already been packaged," says Pfaffenberger.
And then, of course, there were also many things, such as works of art or the results of project work, that they preferred to transport themselves – some of which had therefore already been dragged into the new rooms in advance.
All news and stories can also be found on the Facebook page of the Schongauer Nachrichten.
The classrooms were still in regular classes until Friday. As of today, Saturday, a moving company has been commissioned to bring everything into the container facility that has not already found its place in the interim building - i.e. mountains of boxes and all the furniture. "That's still a lot of stuff," Pfaffenberger said. He assumes that on the Monday after the Whitsun holidays, everything will take its usual course and be as usual – only in new rooms for 470 children in a total of 22 classes.

There is a lot of construction work to be done
Until July 2025, these temporary classrooms will be available to middle school students. During the summer holidays in two years, the containers are to be dismantled again. With the start of school in autumn 2025, the renovation of the old school building should be completed.
It will be completely gutted, the building services, the façade, the roof will be renewed and a building for the administration will be added on the ground floor. The first company is scheduled to start gutting in June, which will drag on until the end of the year, the school board recently said.
The local newspapers in the district of Weilheim-Schongau are represented under "merkur_wm_sog" on Instagram.
Soon there won't be much left of the old building: 77 concrete columns will remain standing, the ceilings and a few walls, "the rest will be gone," says Pfaffenberger. From August, at the end of the current school year, the construction site will also be prepared for the extension.
