GISW Gazette

The 5th Issue of the GISW Gazette ist coming- plus a Christmas Special!

What Ms. Cropsey thinks about Gen Z Slang, what The Art of Denglish is all about and how a partnership with a school in Kenya is developing...

Every issue of the school newspaper presents a challenge: we need a suitable teacher for our infamous teacher interview. But not just anyone. A real someone, someone everyone wants to know about.
This time that means: get ready for an interview with Ms. Cropsey. In the interview, she answers critical questions, talks about her time in Romania and what she likes about the theater.

Our new issue will be published at the Friends Christmas Market on December 2, 2023, but that's not all. We are also working on a Christmas Special, which will be published on December 14, 2023, the day of the Christmas concert. Make a note of these dates and pre-order both issues NOW. The 2-pack is available for $ 5, the individual issues for $ 3 (5th issue), or $ 2 (Christmas Special only).

All profits from this issue will go towards supporting a high school in Naivasha, Kenya. Further information can be found in the article "How we become WELTOFFEN - an exchange project with Kenya".
