Objectives
You get to know your school mates by taking part in different activities that promote the team spirit of the school. By having a fun afternoon together we all learn more about the skills of successful teamwork. Teambuilding is not a theoretical course. Through different kinds of group exercises we learn the basics of successful teamwork - having fun at the same time. Hopefully we can lay foundations for a successful year of study. Both teachers and students take part in this obligatory course.
