Schools comparison


Since school is quickly coming back so I  tried to compare two countries and their schedule for school,obviously I chose the country I picked for the Summer Learning Journey. I compared New Zealand & Germany School schedule. Even those I love the schedule I have, I still think I would go and try out the German school system because how in-depth it is.

Hi Pote,

I think that it's a great idea to think about school and to complete a school-based activity given that you're heading back to PBS in a few weeks!

I have always found schooling to be fascinating and to find the difference quite intriguing. There are clearly some significant differences between the New Zealand and German systems, aren't there? For one, the school day typically finishes quite a bit earlier in Germany than it does in New Zealand.

Would you like it if school finished at 1:00 p.m. each day instead of 2:30 or 3:00 pm? I know that I would love it! The trade-off of an early finish, however, is that the breaks during the day are shorter.

If you had to choose a system, based solely on the length of the school day, which one would you choose? I see that you'd prefer the German system for its' depth but what about its' length?

If you're still in school mode tomorrow feel free to complete Day 9 - Activity 2 and/or the bonus activity for Day 9. They are both related to school and they will get you in the mood for your upcoming year!

All the best,

Rachel
