									Protocol of the schoolyard meeting of 24 October 2006


Report on the on-the-spot meeting dated 19 October 2006

Trees on the schoolyard have to be cut down. Trees of different types have to be
planted if and when necessary.

Preferred plants or trees are walnut or hazelnut trees. In summer the trees offer
shade because the schoolyard is strongly exposed to the sun.

The roof of the recess hall is intended to be pulled down. A sailcloth is going to be
put up as a replacement.

The back schoolyard wall should be re-plastered. In order to protect the wall, a
climbing wall is being planned (3 metres high). This wall is projected as a climbing
wall in the form of lined-up coloured pencils. In order to provide protection against
falls the climbing wall is going to be surrounded by sand soil.

For the back escape route of the schoolyard the path has to be laid with a
wheelchair-friendly even soil / must have an easily accessible flat and even surface.
