Opportunity to study at an international university
Following numerous German lessons, diligent studies and tireless efforts, learners who attended grades 10 - 12 at the Deutsche Höhere Privatschule Windhoek (DHPS) in 2021 finally held the results of their hard work in their hands. The young learners were awarded their German Language Diplomas (DSD I & II).
The German Language Diploma (DSD) examinations of Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs of the Länder in the Federal Republic of Germany are examinations for learners of German foreign language at schools abroad, which are administered by the Central Agency for Schools Abroad (ZfA).
At a ceremony held at the school, Clarissa Judmann, representative of the German Embassy in Windhoek, Kristin Eichholz, DHPS principal and German teachers Gerchia Louw and Thomas Wegener presented the certificates. “With this diploma in a language as difficult as German, you have proven that you are prepared to achieve more than the average school graduate does,” said Kristin Eichholz, principal at DHPS as he heaped praise on the learners.
The principal further stated that the diploma opens many doors internationally, giving the students a variety of universities to choose from to further their studies.
“The dsd is valid for a lifetime and opens important doors not only to universities in Germany, but also to other study and training opportunities,” said Eichholz. DSD II is considered proof of the German language skills required for studying at a German university.
