A schoolday

To parents and legal guardians and our students

We wish you a relaxing holiday and a great summer! Everyone needs relaxation and, thanks to the loosened infection protection, they can once again pursue familiar and beloved everyday activities, hobbies and contacts.

After the holidays, we will probably start the school year “normally” if the low infection rates are maintained. But we can all contribute to this by acting responsibly!

At this point you can always inform yourself about the latest status! About a week before the first day of school in the new school year, all important information is published here.

Since the school is not always manned, you can always reach us in urgent cases via verwaltung@schule-am-schwalbenweg.herne.de

Please write as precisely as possible what your request is and give us, in addition to your sender email, other contact details (telephone number) at which we can reach you.

Stay / stay healthy!

Die Haltestellen sind so eingerichtet, dass möglichst kurze und ungefährliche Fußwege entstehen. Einige Schüler fahren mit dem Linienbus oder kommen zu Fuß oder mit dem Fahrrad zur Schule. Die Rollstuhlfahrer werden mit dem schuleigenen „Rollibus“ und vom ASB transportiert. Aussteigen aus dem “Rollibus” Einige Schüler werden vom ASB transportiert.


Every school day begins with a common morning circle in the entrance hall. After a welcoming song, important information is given for the day and birthday parties are celebrated.

Morning circle

At the beginning of the first lesson block, the younger students in particular discuss the current date and the daily schedule in the class. The current month - as a word card, laid out by oneself and as a gesture is searched for. The planning for the school day is the same. In the weekly plan there are worksheets (here: writing numbers) ... In the "weekly plan", the students receive individual tasks with which content from the areas of reading, writing, arithmetic and perception can be repeated and consolidated. At the same time, the students practice working independently, at their workplace organize and follow a work plan.

8:30 a.m., 9:15 a.m. or 10:15 a.m.: Depending on the level and class, breakfast takes place at different times!

Breakfast is shared in all classes.
Usually the students bring their breakfast with them. In some classes, the weekly class breakfast also promotes the independence of the students (making bread, setting the table, shopping, ...).

Once a week, students at the practical level offer the "bread roll service". After pre-ordering, they provide classmates and teachers with freshly filled rolls.
