For Berlinophiles – 25 Jahre Mauerfall

Many of you will know that the 9th November marks 25 years since the Berlin Wall was opened.  For those of us who remember – an exciting time!  Our partner school, Philipp-Melanchthon Gymnasium in Grünheide near Berlin are going to be taking part in the commemorations this weekend. In two weeks time they are coming to York and we will look forward to hearing about their experience.  Meanwhile, they have sent us these links.  On the YouTube clip you can see the white balloons on the line of the former Wall.  On the other site are the messages that are going onto the balloons as they fly away. Wish we could be in Berlin with them!
