Our trip to Asten/Fisching for the dragon boat race on 19th of June was one of the best trips we have ever had! We are hoping to go there next year too.
At 7.20, all of us were at the information point at the train station in Linz. Those of us who did not have a ticket for the train had to buy one beforehand. The train arrived at 7.51. After the train ride, we took the shuttlebus to the lake Ausee, where the dragon boat race was. And then the fun could begin! Our team (called “The Dolphins”) were in the third race. Before the race we were all given lifejackets for our safety. Then we all stepped into the boat and raced against the other teams! We were fourth. In the second round we somehow became last. Luckily, we still got into the final. We got around a 45-minute break (where we could try out all the activities there) before having to race for the third time. This time, we were against eight teams and became seventh. But we were not that disappointed because most of the other schools were sport schools! At the prize-giving we got a certificate for becoming seventh out of ten teams (out of the first and second grade). Finally-after the long day- we headed back to the train station. There we were picked up by our parents and brought home. This had been a very, very enjoyable day which wouldn’t have happened if our homeroom teacher (Mrs Gauch) hadn’t been so nice!!
We would also like to say thank you to Mr. Grasser and Mrs. & Mr. Ruhs who came along to support us. A big thank you to the LISA Support Association that helped out with the entry fee.

LISA pupils recently took part in a project to provide rucksacks filled with essentials to school children in Africa. We would like to thank all families who took part in the project.
On Wednesday, 13th June 2019, Miss Gauch and Miss Haslinger took our class 2M to Enns to see the Roman museum. Our ‘Roman time travel’ started at Linz central station, from where we took the train to Enns. From the station in Enns we took a walk for approximately 20 minutes to the Roman exhibition at the museum Lauriacum.
During Roman times Enns was called Lauriacum. It was a legion base and an important city at the Danube limes.
Inside the museum we were picked up by the museum guide at 9.30 a.m.
The guide led us through the museum, explained the exhibits of the Roman empire and told us how they were used.
For instance, we learned that the Roman legionnaires had to cook their own food. They obviously ate a lot of wheat bread and carbohydrates, proof of that were their bad teeth which we could look at on a skull exhibited. They also made themselves wine, which they sweetened with honey.
The Romans slept in bunk beds.
The soldiers had to keep themselves clean to avoid infections and epidemics in the fort.
Romans already had medicines as well as hospitals, where also war casualties were treated.
We were shown how legions made their battle line-up and were told about the importance of the Roman Aquila, which was a golden eagle.
There were skeletons from a whole family including a kid.
Finally, we watched a movie about a Roman family and scenes out of their everyday life.
The really interesting visit at the Lauriacum museum ended at 11. a.m. with a nice photograph of our wonderful class 2M.
