Cooperation with Fulda high school
Alumni Erhard Büchel looks forward to numerous meetings with students
What started with a casual exchange of information has now culminated in the signing of a cooperation agreement between the Freiherr-vom-Stein-Gymnasium and our company on joint educational activities.
The Büchel company will be integrated into various teaching projects, for example in lessons in the subject of politics and economics under the title “Economy and the world of work” or in history lessons with the exploration of the company history of the Büchel company, whose roots lie in Zella-Mehlis in Thuringia. A lecture is also planned as part of the so-called “TiS – Talk-im-Stein” on the subject of “Development of the European bicycle market”.
The provision of internships and a visit by students to the company’s German production sites in Barchfeld and Zella-Mehlis have also already been integrated into the extensive program.
However, the cooperation is by no means limited to the subject lessons. The mountain bike club at the Freiherr-vom-Stein-Schule and the bicycle workshop that has been set up are further points of contact for the cooperation. There is no doubt that the topic of “sustainability” will also be a topic of conversation in the classroom, because here the Büchel company is taking a variety of new paths to meet the political and social requirements of sustainability and climate protection.
The Freiherr-vom-Stein-Schule is thus expanding its comprehensive network of cooperative ventures and creating a solid foundation for the interlinking of school and the world of life and work. Erhard Büchel was himself a student at the Freiherr-vom-Stein-Schule, from which he graduated in 1971. As an alumnus of the high school, such an exchange is therefore also a personal concern for him.
