Article Uploaded : 12/02/2019 by Midleton College

A big "Herzlichen Dank!" to Her Excellency, Mrs. Deike Potzel, Ambassador of Germany to Ireland, for visiting Midleton College today. Initiated and organised by Form 5 student of German Laura C. and her teacher Ms. Henry, approx. 150 guests, mostly students of German, History and Politics & Society received a personal insight into life in Eastern Germany during the time of the Fall of the Berlin Wall.  Mrs. Potzel also spoke about her work as an ambassador, and answered questions on Brexit, the voting age, diversity and soccer. Thank you also to the many parents and members of the PTA & Board of Management who took the time to attend the talk. Also, to Laura, Natalie, Aaron and Emily for their positive contribution to make this event a truly memorable experience.
