We are very excited to announce that Box Hill High School has been named a PASCH School, a distinction given by the Federal Government of Germany and the Goethe-Institute to schools with outstanding German language programs and achievements. We have become the first school in Victoria and only the third school in Australia to be invited to join the network of more than 1500 partner schools worldwide.
The objective of this partnership is to promote German language education at schools, intercultural meetings and the development of an international learning community.
The official partnership agreement was signed on Wednesday 19 October 2016 at a formal ceremony with her Excellency Dr. Anna Prinz, the Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany, Ms Eva Baker, Head of Language Australia and Deputy Director of the Goethe-Institute, and other important dignitaries.
As part of the PASCH network our students and teachers will receive excellent teaching resources, scholarships to Germany for top students, study-abroad programs, professional development for teachers in Germany, access to projects, competitions and many other events.
