Kartoffelsalat Competition

It was the old North Germany vs South Germany Kartoffelsalat  competition at Pfadfinder last week!

Each scout patrol made either a north German (mayonnaise based) potato salad or a south German (oil based) one.

The judges had a difficult decision to make, but the participants sure had a good time and relished the opportunity to refine their culinary skills.  Who knew it would take an hour to boil a potato if you don’t chop it up first?  That will be handy knowledge when we are cooking at camp.

 

Spiel und Spass get into Action!

Spiel und Spass had a wonderful time on the ACTION bus wash trip.  Happily, there was room for us all on the bus, and the children, parents, grandparents and aupairs all had a great time.

The faces are obscured in the photo, as not everyone wanted to be posted online, but trust us… everyone was grinning on the day!

Checking out the feeling on the bus windows as the brushes go past in the bus wash.

Plaetzchen by Pfadfinder

Pfadfinder have been busy creating designer cookies to help bring a smile to the face of people living on the streets in Canberra.   The Joeys and Scouts have thoroughly enjoyed decorating the Plaetzchen, ready to be taken to Vinnies for distribution.  It’s just one more way that our Pfadfinder enjoy contributing to the wider community.

Happy Hopping at GAP today!

The children and teachers were delighted to host guest speaker Anke Maria – a local German biologist from ACT Frogwatch – today.  We got to meet and hear from many of her froggy friends, and learn about their habits and environmental needs.   There were lots of hands-on activities, games, puzzles and puppets to have fun with; and plenty of opportunities for the children to ask all their inquisitive questions.

GAP turns 10 years old!

German Embassy helps us celebrate!

The German Australian Playschool is delighted to be the recipient of a kind and generous gift of a beautiful sand and water play activity table from the German Embassy in Canberra.  The GAP turned 10 in December 2016, and it was lovely to receive such a great gift that will be used for years to come!
