Two secondary schools „NMS Enkplatz, a Smarter Together Lighthouse project in itself, received two Enzis, super stylish benches from the MuseumsQuartier (MQ) . The MQ is an international hotspot of arts and lifestyle in Vienna. Kids from Simmering loved it and thought it was super cool.
The next day, the first one was already painted and so fully taken possession.
What makes a district fit for the future?
Kids who like to go to school.
The two super cool and chilling Enzi-benches are supposed to contribute to this positive life attitude as well as to the super positive feeling of „loving-to be-at-school-and-learn-for-life“. Because kids who like to learn give this back to society for a lifetime. That’s why Vienna invests so much in great schools. Here at the Enkplatz as well as in numerous other school locations.
A special thank you for the two Enzis in Simmering goes to the MuseumsQuartier (MQ), which now also inspires the Simmeringer Kids with its great program. Thank you!
The story behind:
„Smarter Together – together g’scheiter“ invests much love and energy in the kids in the district, not least with participatory events, the school extension with four zero-energy gyms, two solar benches and much more. The school expansion makes up to the 27 million euros.
Already 2018 kids from the sports school NSM Enkplatz visited the Keith Haring exhibition in the Albertina, an international mecca and hotspot of the arts.
The result was that the kids painted the fence in the courtyard colorfully in Keith-Haring style: A great school with such dedicated kids and teachers! And the story has even landed in the district newspaper! More about this: Art in the sports school NMS Enkplatz.
That’s how the idea with the Enzis was born.
The smart idea:
If the kids from Simmering already find their way to the imperial Hofburg , why should the high culture not come in the suburbs to the kids? Two enzis, one for each of the two schools, had to come here. Smarter Together made it happen.
And the clue about this:
The enhanced cooperation between the local educational institutions is just starting. And not only that Smarter Together is once again part of it. The so called „Bildungsgrätzel Enkplatz“ is translated in English – just after the MuseumsQuartier – „EducationQuarter Enkplatz„.
One can hardly be more future oriented. Everything for smart kids!
