The extension is one step further on the way to a smooth school operation: since many years, the students are taught alternatively in the mornings and afternoons due to a lack of classrooms. Two pre-school classes can study now exclusively in the mornings where experience has shown that concentration is at its best. The improved learning environment should help students to successfully start their school career in elementary school.
