Goethe-Institut Bangladesh and its five partner schools, Oxford International School, European Standard School, South Point School and College, Maple leaf International School and Chattogram Mastermind International School, celebrated 10 years of “Schools: Partner for the Future” (PASCH initiative) with a concert of German-Swiss reagga and dancehall band Raggabund.
The four-member band Raggabund rocked the audience at the National Theater Hall of Bangladesh Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy on Monday evening.Inaugurating the event, Dr Kirsten Hackenbroch, director of the Goethe-Institut Bangladesh, said “Over the past 10 years, German as a foreign language became increasingly popular in Bangladesh. The PASCH partner schools, with their commitment to train teachers and hold interactive foreign language classes, are setting a crucial basis for this. For the future, we look forward to engaging with the alumni, to intensify our global networking, and to support those who are eager to conduct higher studies in Germany. In the name of Goethe-Institut Bangladesh, I would today like to thank all who made the PASCH network in the last years a vibrant space for intercultural exchange!”
During the event, four students were announced as winners of a video competition producing music videos for songs of Raggabund.
