Eggs for Our Ostereierbaum

1st and 2nd Years have been getting creative in their German lessons to create two beautiful Ostereierbaum, or German Easter trees.

A much loved German Easter tradition, the Ostereierbaum is made from a few young branches of spring blossom trees placed in a vase or container. The branches are then decorated with wooden or blown-out egg ornaments.

Our pupils have been carefully decorating their delicate blown eggs in German lessons. Once dried, these colourful creations have been hung on the ‘trees’ along with silken ribbons and garlands. The trees can be seen in the Senior School Reception and Chapel.

Thanks to Mrs Srikanthan and the gardening team for their work in getting these beautiful decorations made; they certainly add a much-needed touch of Spring to the campus.
