Changing Cities #100Schulzonen Initiative


Once again, the NMS Primary school took part in an initiative to promote a safer journey to school. On Tuesday 23rd April, the street around P23 was closed to traffic, between 7:30am and 8:15am. A 'short-but-sweet' car-free haven was created, a stark difference from the regularly chaotic and occasionally dangerous scene that our children have to navigate on their way to school. The NMS Primary students were able to unleash their street-chalk creativity, turning Pfalzburger Straße into a giant artwork. The Parents' Café took to the street, accompanied by the NMS Apparel Store. And some artistic students, under the expert supervision of Lex, painted a joyfully vibrant zebra crossing, in the place where we really should have one! Sadly, the NMS orchestra was not allowed to perform on the street, but they still put on a fantastic show in the Foyer. What a lovely way to start the day! It was a truly happy occasion, enjoyed by staff, parents, and students alike. 

Thanks to NMS Management and Staff, for their support and involvement. Also, to the Primary School Music Department and Orchestra Students, for their early start and the musical display. Thanks to David Nassim for the wonderful photos, and to all who joined the action and fun.

Many thanks to our traffic campaigners, Michelle, Florian, Marisa and co., for their commitment and tireless efforts. Hopefully the vision of a safe journey to school for our kids will soon become a reality!
