Big Surprise after the summer holidays
Happy faces at Assel primary school: the cheerful pupils from the small town are delighted with six new iPads from Paradise Fruits. The company’s donation is intended to make learning easier for the children and to introduce them to digitalisation.

Finally, the Assel primary school has enough iPads to equip an entire class with the digital devices. A donation from the long-established Assel-based company Paradise Fruits has made this possible. CEO Kurt Jahncke handed over the six sets to headmistress Ines Grotheer-Prott: “The school board takes good care of us, and the friends’ association also contributes a great deal. But this welcome donation really helps us a lot.”
With 110 pupils, the primary school in Assel is one of the smaller ones in the district. Nevertheless, Principal Grotheer-Prott is making an effort to push ahead with digitisation: “This not only helps the children with a migration background, for whom the iPad apps simplify learning German. In the future, the third graders will also be able to make small videos with the tablets or practise solving maths problems better. The teachers are particularly pleased to be able to move the research for science lessons or the in-depth exercise formats from the computer room to the classroom in a practical way, so that the pupils can also have individual access. In two classrooms, children can then connect to an electronic panel for collaborative learning and presentation of their findings.”
After the difficult times of the Covid period CEO Kurt Jahncke adds: “I am grateful that “my” primary school in Assel has given me a good head start, so I am happy to be able to give something back today! Mrs Grotheer-Prott is a great, competent headmistress and the cheerfulness, curiosity and activity of the kids here almost reminds me a bit of Astrid Lindgren’s “Children from Bullerbü”.
