June 2023 — All pupils are looking forward to the “big holidays” with great joy. Finally, the summer holidays are coming. This year, the holidays for NRW already begin on Thursday, 22 June. No school for more than six weeks, no homework and no pressure to take grades.
However, here and there the question arises as to whether one could have studied even more! Be it to strive for a better grade or to get the “saving D” on the report card?
“The summer holidays are a good time to review the material from the previous school year, but also to consolidate existing knowledge,” says Manuel Fischer, who runs the “Lernstudio Elberfeld” at Wall 1 in Elberfeld, an institution that also offers tutoring during the holidays. The Lernstudio will open its doors again on 18 July 2023. Interested students can simply contact the teacher in charge or Manuel Fischer directly. He will then take care of the rest of the programme.
For socially weaker families, there is also the possibility of getting an intensive course approved by the city and the Wuppertal Job Centre through the Education and Participation Act. In this case, a corresponding application would be made after a need has been determined by the school. The number of hours certified by the school as well as the subjects can vary.
Manuel Fischer also helps with the application in these cases.
