FMK school competition – 3rd place for 1B

“Living in the digital future – our world in 50 years” – this was the motto of a school competition announced by the Forum Mobilkommunikation (FMK) for all classes from the 5th grade upwards. Class 1B was immediately enthusiastic about it and was keen to take part. In several lessons, visions and ideas were collected in small groups, sketches and pictures were drawn, animated on the tablet and some ideas were even recorded on video.
After everything had been submitted, a jury had the difficult task of examining the numerous entries from all over Austria. In the second week of June, the result was finally known: 1B came in an excellent 3rd place and thus earned 150€ for the class account.
On 22 June, a virtual cheque was handed over by FMK, which was editorially accompanied by Regionalmedien Austria. The article can be read here: School competition: Class 1B of the Akademisches Gymnasium Innsbruck wins 3rd place – Innsbruck
By the way: What was particularly interesting about the entries from our class was that all of them had a strong environmental focus. This should give us a positive outlook for the future, not least in view of the current challenges posed by climate change.

Flag Football Schoolbowl 2021/22

On 31 May 2022 the Flag Football Schoolbowl took place at the American Football Centre Innsbruck. Five students from the 1st and 3rd classes of AGI (Eleni, Erika, Isabella, Laura-Sofia and Lucia) also took part, under the guidance of Nicholas Garratt, MA.

After months of practice and despite initial shock in the first tournament because their opponents surprisingly turned out to be boys, the girls were victorious and successfully qualified as one of 6 teams for the second tournament. There they again showed great commitment and were rewarded with a trophy for it.

The students had lots of fun at this event and some of the participants are now thinking about joining the Raiders flag football team or the cheerleaders.

Congratulations!

Our CAS Project – Fundraising for Concordia

We, Veit Auckenthaler, Joah Canazei, Mey Huber, Mark Oyf and Moritz Spöck, are students of the Akademisches Gymnasium in Innsbruck and currently attend Year 11. As we will graduate next year and already have to plan our VWA, our everyday life is very stressful and planned. To bring some variety into our routine and at the same time help children in need, we decided to start a fundraiser project.
When we started thinking about our project, it was mid-October, two months left until December and since Christmas is the time of help and compassion, we decided to create a project that we could do at this time. Unfortunately, because of the Corona pandemic, we could not organize anything outside the school, so we made a charitable cookie sale at school, where all the proceeds went to the charity Concordia. The project ensures that all the proceeds go directly to needy children in the Balkans.
We organized two small “Christmas markets” with homemade cookies, cakes and muffins during the pre-Christmas period. Especially among the younger students this project was very popular and it was more successful than we could have imagined at the beginning. In total we took in almost 500€, with which we hope to provide a lot of help.
This project not only helped children in need, but also gave something back to us, namely many happy hours of work and beautiful memories.

Tirol testet: Appeal to use PCR gargle tests after holiday season to protect others

The end of the Christmas holidays is approaching: while Tyrol's schoolchildren can already be vaccinated and regularly check their current Corona status as part of school testing, there is no set testing regime in kindergartens due to federal requirements. However, not least due to the current intensive infection incidence in Tyrol, the province urgently appeals for regular PCR testing of kindergarten children as well. This is possible by means of a PCR gargle test. Throughout Tyrol, these can be obtained and returned free of charge at numerous locations. “Many kindergarten children cannot yet be protected by vaccination, as these are only available for children over the age of five. The fact is that the virus can spread quickly and easily where many people are in close proximity – also with regard to Omikron. Regular testing can prevent infections from being passed on unnoticed. In addition to pupils filling the Ninja Pass as part of their school day, Covid tests are also essential for kindergarten children to avoid clusters in care facilities,” Health Director Theresa Geley points out that kindergartens themselves are not allowed to act as testing sites due to the current federal legal situation. “We therefore appeal to parents, especially after the holidays and before the community facilities reopen, to take a PCR test with their children – whether of kindergarten or school age – in advance. It is in everyone's interest that educational and care facilities can be kept open,” emphasises Elmar Rizzoli, head of the Corona task force.
Tests were given out free of charge by the government at the beginning of the holidays as part of the Holiday Ninja Pass, the third test of which is intended to be carried out before the start of school.

PCR gargle tests easily available close to home

As soon as children are able to gargle, the PCR gargle test offer in Tyrol is also open to this age group. The gargle test kits can be collected and returned at around 400 MiniM and Baguette branches of MPREIS as well as Eurospar, Interspar and SPAR throughout Tyrol. The test result is available after 24 hours at the latest after the sample has been handed in. The sample is collected from the shops at least once a day according to opening hours at around 10 am. So far, more than 77,000 accounts have been created in the application required for the test and more than 92,500 users have been registered. Several users can be created in one account (for example, for children or people who do not have a smartphone). More than 92,000 PCR gargle tests have already been carried out in Tyrol since mid-December. “The free PCR gargle test offer is available to all people in Tyrol. Take advantage of the offer close to your home in order to detect a possible infection as quickly as possible and thus not risk passing it on,” says Rizzoli. Information on the PCR gargle test offer: www.tirol.gv.at/tirolgurgelt

PCR and antigen tests

From January onwards, all pupils will be tested on Mondays with antigen tests and on Wednesdays with PCR and antigen tests.

ESF-REACT EU funding project

Teaching-related support services in the area of general secondary schools in the school year 2021/22

Pupils in the 9th grade and/or pupils in the final grades (incl. special forms) make up for learning deficits in general education and/or compulsory subjects that arose in the previous school year due to the COVID19 pandemic in the form of additional lessons.
These lessons can be held as remedial lessons. Pupils can attend these lessons according to their needs. In addition, group sharing in a general education and/or compulsory subjects can also be offered.
This project is funded by the European Social Fund as part of the Union's response to the COVID19 pandemic.

Measures for school operation from 13 December 2021 to 14 January 2022

In the attached document you will find the current decree on school operations from 13 December 2021 in German language.

Advice hotline on Covid vaccination

Since the National Vaccination Committee has recently recommended the Covid vaccination also for children from the age of five, it is of great concern to the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research that a broad range of information and counselling services is available for parents and guardians.
For this reason, the federal school physicians in Tyrol offer telephone counselling on all questions related to the vaccination. A hotline has been set up for this purpose under the telephone number 0676 88508 82301. On school days between 12:00 and 14:00 and between 16:00 and 18:00, a school doctor will answer questions about Covid vaccination in childhood and adolescence. The hotline will go live on Monday, 6.12.2021. Please note that the hotline will not be staffed during the Christmas holidays.

Decision of the BMBWF on school operation during the lockdown

Currently, the following regulations apply:

  1. The school remains open for face-to-face teaching.
  2. Schoolwork and tests will take place.
  3. Antigen and PCR tests will be continued.
  4. Mandatory masks (MNS) are required in Junior Secondary, also in the classrooms and group rooms.
  5. FFP2 masks are compulsory in Upper Secondary.
  6. Pupils may stay at home without a medical certificate. An excuse from the parents is sufficient. However, there will be no comprehensive Distance Learning.

Stay healthy!

UPDATE: COVID-19 regulation from November 15th

We are starting a new security phase from Monday, November 15th. until 27.11. The ordinance of November 11 is no longer valid.

In this safety phase, all pupils take part in the tests (at least 1xPCR; 2x AGT), including those who have been vaccinated (recovery shouldn't, on the recommendation of the laboratories, take part, as their results could still lead to positive results). With this comprehensive testing, positive cases can be detected early and chains of infection can be quickly interrupted – even in the families.
The regulations of risk level III apply to all schools. This means that the pupils as well as the teachers of upper secondary wear an FFP2 mask during this safety phase. In elementary school and junior secondary, the obligation to wear the FFP2 mask only applies until you have taken your seat – then the mask can be removed.
Unfortunately, school events have to be canceled during the two weeks of the security phase, conferences and parenting days take place online – provided they are not postponed.

Important news for the start of the school year

1. Declaration of consent for self-testing in the school year 2021-22

Attention: For the school year 2021-22, a new declaration of consent must be signed for the Covid19 self-tests to be carried out (see form below).

Relaxation of COVID-regulations! Corona update from 14 June 2021

For all classes – no more mask requirements in class

The mask requirement in class for secondary levels I and II ends on Tuesday, June 15. This means that in the classes and group rooms during the lesson, as soon as the seats have been taken, neither FFP2 masks nor MNS must be worn by the students or the teachers. Masks are still required during breaks and when moving through the school building. If teachers or students want to wear a mask for whichever reason, this is of course permitted.

Classes in music and related subjects, as well as exercise and sports

Singing and making music with wind instruments as well as exercise and sport are possible again without wearing a mask, even in closed rooms, as long as the safety distances can be observed and regular ventilation takes place.

Cooperation with people and institutions outside of school

School cooperation is allowed again, i.e. people associated with the school can enter the school building and come into contact with the students while observing the hygiene regulations.

School after the Easter holidays

School operations will continue after the Easter holidays in the current mode:
Shift work continues in the usual way, i.e. the students are divided into groups that are taught face-to-face on two consecutive days. On Friday, all students are generally in non-location-based lessons. Holy Week is counted the same way as a school week.
This means that on Tuesday, 6.4. 2021 Group B will be in school and group A on Wednesday, 7.4. and Thursday, 8.4.21.

Supervision continues as in the last few weeks.

Corona Update

Today Federal Minister Univ.-Prof. Dr. Heinz Faßmann presented the plans for the final exams in the 2020/21 school year and provided information on other important topics. We would like to point out the following particularly relevant points:

- All oral partial exams as well as the presentation and discussion of “final papers” at the Matura again take place on a voluntary basis this school year.

- In the summer semester, there will be not more than one school assignment per subject in all types of schools [and levels].

- As in the previous school year 2019/20, advancement to the next higher school level is possible with one “Nicht genügend”, provided that this subject was positively assessed in the previous year. In the case of two or more “Nicht genügend”, the decision on advancement to the next school level lies with the class conference.

Enclosed you will find the package of measures for the graduating classes.

Classes after the semester break: “shift work” for everyone

Shift work with fixed days of face-to-face lessons and distance learning

Throughout Austria, the upcoming shifts will be staggered uniformly: The classes will be divided into two groups: The students in group A attend school on Monday and Tuesday. Group B students have face-to-face classes on Wednesday and Thursday. On Friday, both groups will be taught in distance learning. In the following week, group B starts on Monday.

Self-tests on Monday and Wednesday before the start of classes

The self-tests are carried out on Monday by students in group A and on Wednesday by students in group B at the start of lessons in the school. Many students have already done the self-test at school and know the process. The testing in the school is supported by the teachers.

Information on self-tests and informed consent for 10-14 year olds

On the website www.bmbwf.gv.at/selbsttest you will find all central information about antigen self-tests in schools. You probably already know the instruction video and the one-page instructions for implementation. As usual, the declaration of consent is also available for download on the website mentioned (also in several languages). If you have not yet sent this to your school, please send it to the school no later than the morning of the first school day after the school break.

Supervision

For all children who need supervision, there will be learning supervision in small groups from 7:55 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Furthermore, children who do not have a suitable place to study at home can come to school and do their home schooling tasks in small groups. The school is open from 7:10 a.m. PCs, laptops and tablets will be available in the rooms on the 1st floor.

End of semester and supplementary lessons

Semester report:

Unfortunately, we cannot hand out the semester report as usual on the last day of school before the semester break.
In the semester break ordinance 2021 (C-SeVO 2021) it is regulated for the current school year that the semester report is to be handed over on one of the first two teaching days of the summer semester 2021, i.e. after the semester break.
From Friday, 5 February, pupils of the 4th grade or their legal guardians can pick up the semester report personally and individually at the secretariat, subject to compliance with the hygiene measures.

We hope that we will see all the students back at school after the semester break. Unfortunately, it has not yet been regulated in what form the lessons will be organized after the holidays. As soon as we have more detailed information, it will be announced here and by email.

From the start of the holiday, the pupils can view their grades via WebUntis.

Supplementary classes during the semester break:

The Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research will finance a support offer for children in the form of supplementary lessons during the upcoming semester break. The key points for this are:

Letter from the Minister for Education - 14. November 2020

INOFFICIAL TRANSLATION – Vienna, 14 November 2020

Dear parents and guardians,

The development of Covid-19 infections has led to the need for another hard lockdown in Austria. In order for the healthcare system to continue to function and to ensure that people in hospitals can be cared for, all areas of society must make a contribution: stores must be closed again, services such as a hairdresser's appointment must not be provided, and contacts in public places and in companies must be avoided by means of a large home office.

The school is also affected by these measures.

From Tuesday, November 17, 2020, there will be only limited operation with learning support at elementary schools, secondary schools, AHS lower grades and polytechnic schools. All children and adolescents who can be cared for at home and who do not have any special support needs should actually stay at home.

However, for all children who need care, there will be learning guidance in small groups. Even children who do not have a suitable place to learn at home can come to school and do their homeschooling in learning stations.

It is especially important to me that those children and young people who have difficulties with individual objects or need special support are well looked after. They will be actively encouraged by the teachers to come to school so that they do not build up a learning backlog and do not lose touch with the class.

From Monday, December 7th, normal school operations will then start again.

You can make an important contribution to ensuring that the lockdown has the desired effect: Please also reduce your private contacts during this time, and please leave your children at home during their free time if possible, even if this is difficult for everyone and is a particular burden for young people.

In the supplement you will find tips and information so that you can manage these three weeks of home schooling well. But one hint is especially important to me: If you or your
If the blanket falls on your child's head, it is best to let your child go back to school temporarily. One or two days are often a great relief.

All further information about home schooling and registration formalities for learning support or learning stations at the location can be obtained directly from your school.

I wish you and your family all the best in these difficult times!

Your

Prof. Dr. Heinz Faßmann
Federal Minister of Education, Science and Research
