Since its foundation in 2008 upon an initiative of the German Foreign Ministry, PASCH has been looking for the best 1000 schools all over the world. In Bangladesh, it invited the Oxford International School and South Point School & College to participate in the PASCH programme.

On 20 January 2010, Goethe-Institut Bangladesh, the cultural wing of the German Embassy and implementing organisation of PASCH in Bangladesh, and the German Embassy Dhaka celebrated PASCH’s first birthday.

Ambassador Holger Michael and the Director of the Goethe-Institut Bangladesh Angela Grünert inaugurated the ceremony, followed by presentations of students’, teachers’ and principals’ experiences as well as on the programme itself. 1st Birthday of PASCH Programme in Bangladesh Enlarge image 1st Birthday of PASCH Programme in Bangladesh (© Press section German Embassy Dhaka) The celebration was concluded by performances of students from both Oxford International School and South Point School & College.

The PASCH programme offers many benefits for any school with interest in teaching German. The Goethe-Institut plans to include more partner schools from Bangladesh into the PASCH programme; negotiations are running. Schools in Dhaka or elsewhere which would like to know more about or even join the programme are called to contact the PASCH representative at the Goethe-Institut:
