At the inauguration of the school were also representatives of the action from the Vechta County in Kelecha Jibat here. They were greeted enthusiastically by thousands of people. SgH representative Volker Kläne reported on the celebrations as a reporter. “It was a very emotional moment, it’s unbelievable how many people came to the inauguration, and there was a lot of excitement about the new school buildings,” he said. “It’s nice to see that the children now have much better conditions for learning – and for many, many years.”
