German Goethe Institut forms educational and cultural partnership with Farlingaye High School.
The Goethe Institut, promotes knowledge of the German language abroad and fosters international cultural cooperation. The Goethe Institut has two institutes in the UK, one in London and one in Glasgow. They offer language courses and a range of cultural events and information services.
Farlingaye High School in Woodbridge has become the latest school to join the Goethe Institut’s Schools: Partners for the Future initiative. I was invited to photograph the recent launch event to celebrate the new partnership. There were two events running in parallel at Farlingaye High School at the same time. One was the official launch ceremony and presentation to mark the new partnership, and the other was a concert and music workshop by the noted german rapper Chefket, which was enjoyed by many of the pupils.

The London and Glasgow institutes are focussing on expanding their educational and language projects in British education by highlighting the advantages of learning German for a successful career. They are also extending their reach through new language course locations and online learning. From a cultural perspective, the Goethe Institut promotes knowledge of the German language abroad and foster international cultural cooperation.
The partnership with the Goethe Institut means that means Farlingaye High school will now have a focus on the German language and culture. Students, who study German at Farlingaye will benefit from a range of fantastic opportunities, such as scholarships, workshops and global projects as a result of the new partnership.
