WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP – Bunker Hill Middle School students in Herr (Mr.) Mike McCloskey’s German classes celebrated the Bavarian tradition of Oktoberfest during a full-spread feast on Monday, October 18, 2021, in the school’s cafeteria. 

Students recently read about and discussed the customs and importance of the holiday to German culture. At the event, German food, including three types of wurst (sausage), Käsespaetzle, Wiener Schnitzel, German potato salad, red cabbage and, for dessert, Apfelstrudel were provided by Philadelphia restaurant Brauhaus Schmitz.


The BHMS PTO offset some of the cost of the food with a donation, and approximately 50 students signed up to take part.
