Inside King's-Edgehill School

Christmas Cookies German Style

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Dec 20, 2019 4:55:00 AM

When Christmas is near and you are away from home, it feels great to find moments in which we can create and experience some pieces of our culture and traditions. All of our students and teachers from Germany, as well as Ella Brown, one of our fierce learners of German, recently transformed Mr. and Mrs. Verryn-Stuart’s kitchen into a Weihnachtsbäckerei (Christmas bakery) and our living room into a movie theatre.

While the Vanillekipferl (vanilla shortbread), Kokosmakronen (coconut macaroons), Zimtsterne (cinnamon stars), and Husarenkrapferl (jam cookies) were baking, the students spent their time watching movies and entertaining little Claire and Timo Verryn-Stuart. It was wonderful to see everyone indulge in their baking talents and to snuggle up on the couch and relax during the movie now that Christmas exam time is upon us. I am pretty sure those baked goods gave everyone a nice energy boost! Frohe Weihnachten!

There are so many activities here that get students doing more, while we help them aspire to be more. If you're considering King's-Edgehill School for your child, you may want to connect with a current KES parent for answers and insights. We'll connect you with one here.
