Felix Römer – author, presenter, poet, workshop leader visited South Africa, primarily to conduct a poetry workshop as part of the Grade 9 Literature Camp.
As a prelude, an author reading took place on Tuesday, July 19, 2022 in the DSJ Staff Room. It was a complete success: the guests really enjoyed listening to and, above all, exchanging ideas with the author – for the first time in a long time, it was a convivial evening with a literary-cultural background, which all the guests visibly enjoyed. The moderation by the students Annika Röhner and Luise Bachmeier, both from Grade 10A, was particularly successful, as they engaged in a clever and witty exchange with Felix Römer.
Many thanks also go to the Cultural Department of the German Embassy in Pretoria, which provided financial support for the visit. Felix Römer came to the DSJ on the initiative of the German faculty and subsequently visited the German International School Pretoria and the German International School Cape Town.
