2. This silvery sculpture created by artists Wolfgang Winter and Berthold Hörbelt is located on the exterior of the Frankfurter Kunstverein’s building.

I would like to thank the Direct Subsidy Scheme Schools Council for organizing this Germany Educational Trip. Thanks to Principal Dion Chen and Dr Samuel Cheng for leading the tour. And most importantly, thanks to Mrs Lam for inviting me to join the tour with her. It was an excellent learning opportunity for me personally and a great chance for me to bring what I gain overseas to my students at YWPS.
Final advice: Wherever you go, open your eyes and minds to learn, think and reflect more – the world is your classroom.
