Bye Bye Red-Sea.com ::: Welcome Spotredsea.com

News ...



The Great Sphinx of Giza, one of the most famous monuments of Pharaonic Egypt, is to get a facelift, the Egyptian ministry of culture said.

Restoration work on the noseless creature undertaken by the High Council for Antiquities is to focus on the beast's neck and chest, rendered fragile by the erosion of desert winds.

Egyptian antiquities boss Zahi Hawas said the last restoration work on the half-man half-lion statue was carried out in 1996.

The face of the 73-metre long and 20-metre high Sphinx, believed to have been built 5,000 years ago, is thought to be modelled on the Pharaoh Khepren and wears a royal headdress.

Situated close to the Great Pyramids of Giza just outside Cairo, the Sphinx will remain accessible to the public during the restoration work.

Hier ist jedoch die Teilnahme an den Vorschuljahrgängen KG 1 und KG 2 bindend. Nach Absolvierung der beiden Stufen wird durch ein Sprachtest festgestellt, ob die Einschulung in die 1. Klasse der Grundschule erfolgt.
Bei Schülern, die bereits eine andere Schule besucht haben, wird ein Sprach- bzw. Leistungstest durchgeführt, um zu gewährleisten, dass das Klassenniveau gehalten werden kann.
Die Deutsche Schule Hurghada ist eine Privatschule. Der Schulträger behält sich vor, die Schüler anhand Ihrer schulischen Leistungen auszuwaehlen, um ein hohes Lernniveau zu erreichen. Des Weiteren ist ein persönliches Gespräch mit Eltern und Kindern mit dem Schulmanagement vorgesehen.

The German School in Hurghada will be founded primarily for German children with German as their mother tongue. Of course all other nationalities are more than welcome. For these children the participation of KG 1 and KG 2 is obliging to learn the German language. After KG 2 there will be a language test to give access to the Primary School.

For students transferring from another school, there will be a qualification exam to allow proper grade
The German teachers will be sent from the Germany with exams of the ministry of education, the Egyptian Teachers will be found on the local market.

Further move the sponsor will focus on a high motivation of the staff to avoid private lessons after school.

Parents & Kids



Every child loves books, and every parent loves a child who reads: they’ll do well in school. But books and stores are also a great source of creative fun. When children learn they have the ability to take stories off the page, they feel empowered to let their own amazing ideas take over. Children of almost any age have the ability to compose their own tales, they just need some encouragement from you.

For ages 3-6

  • Listen and learn. Start by telling your preschooler stories. Anything that comes to mind: a personal story inspired by a book or a tale of your own childhood.
  • Little tales. As you’re reading books, suggest to your child that she tell you what the turtle did the next day, or what she thinks happens after the books ends

For ages 6-9

  • Imagine a story. Give your child a character, object and place and have them create a story. You can also get your child to write their story down or make illustrations afterwards

For ages 9-11

  • Play with stories. Your child’s bound to have a favorite book or two, so have them take that story off the page. Have them create a costume for their favorite character, host a theme party or just have a dinner with food inspired by the book
