"What happens after school? That is probably one of the most difficult questions students face before graduation," says Daniel Fritz, Managing Director of Röchling Industrial SE & Co. KG in Haren and CFO of the Industrial Division. In order to give them insights into different occupational fields, the company cooperates with a local secondary school, the Martinus-Oberschule. "We are pleased that we can successfully conclude a first joint project of our cooperation today with the handover of the "Cornhole" game."
The aim of the "Cornhole" game is to throw bags filled with corn through a hole in a plastic plate. It was made by pupils of Martinus-Oberschule during their project days. "A group of pupils made the game at Röchling in the company. In addition to exciting insights into the company and production, they also got to know different apprenticeship professions in practice," reports Michael Tieben, team leader for career orientation at Martinus-Oberschule. "For the pupils, practical work is important to find out which profession suits them."
The game was made of thermoplastic from Röchling and milled in the shape of the Röchling coat of arms. The board was then further processed by the pupils. The official handover took place during the school festival.
