Once again we are inviting you to the open classroom where students showcase a theme they have learned and studied during the school year.
This is also the last day of class for this school -year.

The projects you see are especially made during our annual project days. Every year Das Schulhaus decides on a topic related to the German Language. Teachers explore that topic with their students in the classroom. Students get the opportunity to work through that topic in various ways for one or two evenings as a school.

This year’s project day topic is:


We will offer a relief printmaking workshop for all ages organized jointly with Articulate Ink (www.articulateink.ca) and the Calgari Project (www.caligari.ca).

Please bring an extra paint shirt that day.

We are inviting all of you and your families and friends. Why don’t you bring your child’s best friend? Make arrangements and let your child be a proud presenter of what they achieved the last year.

Das Schulhaus' letter to the Ministry of Education

As the provincial government eliminates its support for heritage language learning after 25 years, we would like to share the content of the letter to the Ministry of Education DAS SCHULHAUS wrote:

Das Schulhaus - Regina German Language School Inc. was founded in 2011 continuing the 60 year legacy of German instruction in Regina.  It is run by dedicated volunteers, parents and educators who spend countless hours giving their time and energy to ensure that the German culture and language is shared with students both young and old.

We, the Board of Directors, find the withdrawal of funding for all heritage language schools in Saskatchewan deeply disappointing.  These language schools continue to grow in diversity as the immigrant and refugee population expands in Saskatchewan.  It is of vital importance that both newly arrived newcomers as well as first and second generation immigrants can have access to their language of origin.  This builds a bridge between cultures, roots people to their new country and provides a sense of community to those seeking a new life in a foreign land.  At a time where the focus of the federal government is to welcome newcomers to Canada, the striking of funding is counterproductive and sends a message that culture/language is not important to maintain in Saskatchewan.

The heritage language schools, whether they be large or small in status, are affected equally by funding.  The funding given is minimal at best but is still valued by the schools and fundamentally supports a person's right to equal access to their language of origin.  As a country that prides itself on multiculturalism, striking such funding would be counter intuitive.  Heritage language schools have the ability to offer credit classes to high school students and as such provide a valuable service to the school boards in their diversity of languages.  These languages may open doors of opportunities they might not otherwise have and connect them to the greater world.

The funding is invaluable to the heritage language schools.  The government may not see tangible results from it but be assured they are there.  They are found in the future generations of this land that have a deeper understanding of culture, value diversity, and should they go off into the world come back to invest in the land they call home bringing new ideas and skills with them.

We ask you to reconsider the loss of funding for the heritage language schools in Saskatchewan. Let Saskatchewan be a leader to the other provinces and pride itself on investing in multicultural education.
