Bermatingen Primary school

Bermatingen there since 2003, only one elementary school site. Die ehemalige Außenstelle in Ahausen wurde zugunsten einer vergrößerten und modernisierten Schule am zentralen Standort Bermatingen aufgegeben. The former office in Ahausen was abandoned in favor of an enlarged and modernized school at the central site Bermatingen. Die neue Schule lässt sich mit Fug und Recht als eine der schönsten der Region bezeichnen. The new school can be justifiably described as one of the finest in the region.

Several times a year well-known children's book authors will be invited to give readings.

Weitere Höhepunkte im Schuljahr sind die Kino-Vorführungen mit der schuleigenen DVD-Projektionsanlage.
