Bamberg schools must prepare for a greater influx of students

The city’s population has grown significantly in recent years, and rising birth rates and planned housing projects will also have a major impact on student numbers in the coming years. In its most recent meeting, the cultural senate agreed that infrastructural adjustments are necessary, which affect the schools in bamberg in particular.

"The top priority for consideration is the area east of the rail line, since the increase in student numbers there requires a bundle of measures that necessitates a corresponding lead time", explained matthias pfeufer from the municipal education office. In view of the dramatic increases in student numbers in some parts of the city – at the rupprechtschule alone, numbers are rising from 283 students in the current school year to an expected 443 in the 2024/2025 school year – the city faces major challenges, he said. This forecast is based on current data from the residents’ registration office and does not yet take into account the children who will be added in the next few years after various housing projects are completed.

The administration has been working for some time on approaches as to how the city of bamberg can meet these changed needs – and how receptive the individual schools still are. New containers are now to be set up at the rupprecht school. At the heidelsteigschule, containers will initially be expanded to accommodate the all-day program, while a feasibility study is prepared for the partial renovation and expansion of the school. And the pestalozzischule is to be used temporarily as a branch of the heidelsteigschule after the pending move of the fachhochschule des mittelstands.

Plane tree next to kupsch will probably be allowed to stay

Once upon a time, three trees were to fall victim to the redesign of the pedestrian zone. The building committee decided some time ago that the lime tree at the western end of the upper market street should remain standing. Now the plane tree that was to be cut down at the entrance to the pedestrian zone also seems to have been saved. Only the tree next to the old town hall, it should not have a chance.

Shortly after it became known that the three trees were in mortal danger, signs were found on the trunks by unknown hands, demanding trees instead of concrete. Mayor kay blankenburg (SPD) pointed out on wednesday that the felling of these three trees was one of the results of the citizen participation process. The building committee then nevertheless very quickly reduced the number to two.

Actually no reasons

now it’s about the survival of the plane tree next to kupsch and the landratsamt, which was supposed to have been sentenced to death. According to blankenburg, there were no technical or design reasons for the plane tree to come down. The planners were only concerned with the visual relationship to the church. "The concept for the redesign of the pedestrian zone will not fail because of this tree", summed up the mayor. That’s why he will fight to keep the plane tree standing.
