The consolidated companies SBG were honoured with the SACHSEN ASSE 2010 for its forward-looking educational concept.

The award presentation was made by Prof. Dr. Carl Hahn, the former chairman of VW, after whom the "Saxony International School - Carl Hahn non-profit organisation" is named.

Mr Prof. Dr. Carl Hahn valued highly the educational concept and its outcome. Furthermore, he expressed his enthusiasm for the pedagogical work starting from kindergarten and allowing a life-long learning beyond primary school, middle school, high school and vocational high school.

Later on, Mr Rüdiger School gave a moving speech where he used the opportunity to thank not only Mr Prof. Dr. Carl Hahn but also teachers, parents, the mayors and sponsors for their support - all of those people who made the success of his schools possible. The good results of various educational evaluations in all schools and in the kindergartens give evidence of its prosperity.

Again, Mr Rüdiger School likes to thank all supporters and especially Mr Prof. Dr. Carl Hahn for his moving speech and that he came all the way from Wolfsburg to Chemnitz with no hesitation to present the award.
