German School kids Hamilton Grammar February 1974.WWM.jpg

In February 1974 Sixteen young German School pupils of the Albert Schweitzer school in Hofgeisamar, were guests of the Provost Robert Sherry at the Town House.
Accompanied by their teacher Mrs Erika Wiemer, and Miss D. Chalmers of the language department of Hamilton Grammar School, they were entertained to afternoon tea and shown some of Hamilton’s civic treasures.
The pupils were in Hamilton in 1974 on a three-week exchange with pupils of Hamilton Grammar School.
A party of Hamilton Grammar pupils were to also spend June in Hofgeismar. This exchange had been taking place between the two schools since 1956.
