Generous donation and new assignment

The students at Von Aldenburg School in Borgstede can look forward to a new basketball hoop for their schoolyard. He was treated by Varel dentist Dr. Carolin Wattenberg donated. With the consent of her patients, she collected toothpaste for many years and saved about 4,000 euros as a result. The money was not just enough for a basketball hoop. The housing group at the orphanage in Rallenbüschen could also be helped: The girls and boys are happy with two new football goals. “It is important to me that the donation makes it possible for children and young people to have fun and exercise. It gives them a more versatile balance in their everyday life, ”says the dentist.

Class teacher Werner Abele handled the logistical details when purchasing the basket and prepared the students for it. “Every child needs individual support and attention from the teachers. You can only concentrate for a short time, ”says Abele. The new basketball hoop is in high demand among the children, and now the elementary school students at the Von Aldenburg school can really let go of the steam. The Special School for Emotional and Social Development (ESE) currently teaches 28 children between the ages of six and eleven. The primary school students are admitted, partially admitted or outpatient and attend Von Aldenburg School. “Here the children have the chance to receive special educational support,” says Claudia Preuss, head of the Varel orphanage.
