Sycor supports the Hainberg Gymnasium Göttingen in the procurement of Corona rapid tests.
The use of rapid tests is intended to make classroom instruction safer for students. To enable the tests to be launched at short notice, Sycor is providing financial support to Hainberg Gymnasium, a long-standing cooperation partner, for their procurement. "We know how important face-to-face teaching is for the students and are pleased to be able to help fill the classrooms again with our donation," said Sven Frenzel, marketing manager at Sycor.
According to a press release from the Lower Saxony Ministry of Education, the schools will be supplied with rapid tests by the end of the Easter vacations. However, the school management did not want to wait that long and, in cooperation with parents and the booster club, started a fundraising campaign without further ado. With great success, because in no time at all 7,000 euros in donations were collected: 5,000 euros were pledged by well-known local companies. 2,000 euros were raised through donations from parents. In the meantime, the high school has been able to purchase 1,400 rapid tests and has begun testing on a voluntary basis. School management, parents and above all the students are happy that these rapid tests will make attendance classes safer.
Since 1993, Hainberg Gymnasium has been part of UNESCO's worldwide network of schools with approximately 10,000 schools, 300 of which are in Germany and 28 in Lower Saxony. Topics such as human rights, environmental protection and tolerance are dealt with in class and taught in the form of project work. The members of this network are committed to the overarching educational goal of UNESCO.
