Making the way to school safer: Five students from the Christoph-Probst High School in Gilching will help with this in the future.
You volunteered and completed training to become a student pilot.
Gilching – Lukas Wagner had at least two reasons to celebrate last Friday.
On the one hand, he turned 15 that day, and on the other hand, it was his first day as a student pilot.
Together with four other students from the seventh and ninth grades of the Christoph-Probst-Gymnasium in Gilching - Fynn Sedlmeier, Niclas Andre, Jim Klinke and Marek Jakobi - he wants to ensure a safe route to school in the future, wearing a high-visibility vest and with a trowel.
“This way we can improve our pocket money and do charitable work,” said 13-year-old Niclas Andre, explaining a pleasant side effect at the press event.
For every half hour begun, students receive four euros.
For the youngest in the group, twelve-year-old Fynn Sedlmeier, the role model function also plays an important role.
In the past, all five of them often wanted a student guide exactly where there was none.
So the boys answered a call from the school.
At the end of January, after five learning units of 45 minutes each, they successfully completed their training with the two youth traffic educators from the Gautingen police, police chief Franziska Summer and police chief Julian Kolein.
“We now know what to look out for when a car comes,” said the birthday child Lukas Wagner.
“It is important to us that there are young people who are committed to society and give something back,” emphasized Kolein.
“The student pilots not only make an important contribution to the community at the school, but also promote community cooperation, team spirit and a sense of responsibility,” explained Gauting police chief Andreas Ruch.
He thanked the students for their commitment and enthusiasm - and the school management and teachers of the CPG.
Thanks to their commitment, after a break of several years, it was possible for the first time ever to recruit student pilots from among the students.
High appreciation for student motivation and commitment
The head of the CPG, Elisabeth Mayr, also believes that “that our students stand up for each other” is important - especially since not only around 1,600 students attend the high school on Talhofstrasse, but also several hundred attend the neighboring Arnoldus elementary school and the Villa Holzwurm after-school care center.
“Approximately 2,000 students and teachers come and go here.
The rush hour between half past seven and 8 a.m. would be unthinkable without student pilots,” explained the director.
The community also appreciates the new arrivals.
“I am pleased about the young people’s commitment,” said Steffi Weiler, who heads the children and youth department at the town hall.
Andrea Kautzner coordinates which traffic helpers are located where and when.
There are approximately eight positions around campus.
The team now includes around 20 helpers, she explained.
“I’m very excited that so many people have come forward.”
Police Chief Kolein is proud of his “trainees”: “The boys are bursting with motivation, and you can tell that they do it with joy and not because they were coerced.” In the future, they will stand individually in different places between 7:25 a.m. and 7:55 a.m Help pedestrians cross the street.
This also means that they have to leave the house half an hour earlier than before.
This isn't a problem for the boys.
He might have to skip brushing his teeth, said Lukas Wagner.
And Fynn Sedlmeier explained: “Then I eat my breakfast on the way to the deployment site.”
