Give your primary pupils the chance to experience Germany's Christmas culture in a real-life setting!

The application process for this programme is now open.

Deadline: 18 September 2018

This programme offers primary schools the chance to run their own Christmas trip to Germany as part of a visit to their partner school. UK-German Connection will provide schools with a framework, including comprehensive planning guidelines, and documentation, as well as financial support for the trip.

As part of this programme, a group of primary pupils from the UK travel to Germany with their teachers, as well as 'mentors' from a nearby secondary school to meet their German peers, learn some new German words and get a taste of Christmas in Germany.

The suggested itinerary includes:

• a visit to a German primary school, where the children share Christmas traditions, sing Christmas carols and work on a mini-project together
• visiting historical and cultural sites
• visits to the Christmas markets
• Christmas craft workshops

If you're a primary school with a partner school in Germany and would like to find out more about this project, please read the programme guidelines and fill in the application form (see Files to download list on the right of this page).
