Students from Martino-Katharineum in Braunschweig, Germany, are visiting their sister school, Rancocas Valley Regional High School in Mount Holly. The partnership between the two schools started in 1986, said Iris Gaughan, Rancocas Valley's library/media center coordinator. On April 7, 35 pupils from the school in northern Germany, all members of the school's choir, arrived for a 10-day visit. In June, Rancocas Valley's concert choir will visit the German school. "Over the years individual students from both schools have participated in the exchange program, but the love of music has truly broken down the language and cultural barriers and has bonded the two schools," Gaughan said.

In all the recent attention being given to Cardinal John Krol's decision to close Roman Catholic High School, I have yet to note any mention of two important considerations: the mini baby boom and the "gentrification" of Center City's neighborhoods. Recent redevelopment and residential construction initiatives, some, like the Packard Motor Car Building and the Philadelphia Athletic Club, almost next door to Roman's classrooms, stand in sharp contrast to the Cardinal's "diminishing enrollments" argument.

Numerous are the high school basketball players who, after a not-so- sterling performance, find themselves being subjected to pointers, and/or guff, from fathers or older brothers who are familiar with the game's inner workings. But how many players receive lectures from older sisters? Better yet, how many would listen? An answer to both those questions is Chris Razler. And the 6-5 senior swingman from Father Judge is not ashamed to admit it. "When I get home from a game," Razler said yesterday, after the Crusaders squashed visiting Cardinal Dougherty, 63-45, in a spirited, well-attended Catholic North game, "my sister is the first one to criticize me. She tells me what I'm doing wrong.

It had been two seasons since Council Rock South lost a Suburban One League National Conference dual meet. On Wednesday night, its sister school, Council Rock North, handed the Golden Hawks their second loss in the last five weeks. The Indians used a furious run in the final six matches to overcome the Hawks, 41-27, for the first time since 2009 at South. The win is just North's fifth in 15 matches all-time between the schools, a series dubbed the "Unity Cup. " North took the first three bouts - by decision, major decision, and fall - to open a 13-point lead.

This will be Gloucester Township Tech's last season of battling the big schools in the American Division of the Olympic Conference. Coach John McMillen expects to have a better chance of competing in the National Division, starting in 1987-88. Kevin Carver, a 6-foot senior, will have to play center against the likes of Camden, Cherry Hill East and West, and Edgewood, to name a few formidable opponents. "How is Kevin going to play center at only 6-0?" McMillen asked. "With great difficulty, I should think.

The Northern Chester County Technical School joint operating committee met at the vocational school in Phoenixville and heard what may be one of its last reports if a proposal to create a countywide board is passed. At Tuesday night's meeting, the seven members of the Northern Board expressed enthusiasm about a report presented by Northern counselor Susan Lang and her assistant Phyllis Teifel. Lang and Teifel said that 95 percent of the vocational students participating in an Operation Success program to prevent dropouts either had stayed with the program to graduation or had remained in school.

It took eight Shawnee High school students two minutes last Thursday to load 35 boxes of clothes into a mover's truck for schoolchildren and their families in Alton, Texas. The Shawnee High School students celebrated the end of their two-month project by cheering, putting their arms around each other and slapping each other high-fives. The mood in Texas, unfortunately, is much grimmer. After 21 children died in a schoolbus accident in Alton on Sept. 21, some of their classmates didn't have shoes or clothes to wear to the funerals.

Dan and Margie Gallagher will celebrate 35 years of marriage this Sunday. "Or is it one-thirty-five?" Dan said with a laugh. It must seem that long sometimes. Not because the years have been bad. Because they've been packed with activity. Including last-of-the-line Mike, a senior defensive back for St. John Neumann's football team, the Gallaghers have 11 children. The first 10 - half are married and have provided nine grandchildren - all graduated from Neumann or its sister school, St. Maria Goretti.

The RETS Electronics School in Broomall was granted a 30-day extension from a bankruptcy judge Monday to reach a final sale agreement with a prospective buyer. It was the second extension from Judge Bruce I. Fox of the Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania on Monday, and it staves off the closing of the school. RETS filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in July 1987, when its parent company underestimated the costs associated with several new out-of- state trade schools it had acquired.

After buying the Waldorf-Astoria, the General Motors Building, and billions of dollars of U.S. Treasury bonds, the Chinese may be looking to invest in something completely different - a broke and struggling school system. The head of the Chester Upland School District announced Wednesday that he would travel to China to work out a deal in which an elite school would pour up to a billion dollars into the Delaware County district, which is in state receivership, and the communities it serves.

The decision by Central Bucks High School West to scrub the remainder of its football season has left its two remaining opponents - and about 3,500 students and their families - dealing with the ripple effect of the last-minute cancellation. Underclassmen from the two opponent schools looking to impress college scouts, substitutes trying to gain more playing time, seniors who covet every second they spend on field - as well as the marching band, color guard, cheerleaders, and fans - will have one fewer game this season.

Nishma Reyes' trip to school starts at 6:45 a.m., and it takes her an hour to get to Archbishop Ryan Academy for the Deaf in the Juniata Park section of Philadelphia. Nishma, 11, thinks it's worth it. So do her parents, Angel and Betzaida, who moved from Puerto Rico to South Jersey because Ryan was the school they wanted for their daughter. "It's the people, the sisters, the teachers," Betzaida Reyes said. "They're like family. " On Sunday, the Reyes family and hundreds of others gathered to mark Ryan's 100th anniversary with tours of the school, a banquet, and a Mass celebrated by Archbishop Charles J. Chaput and marked by a communion meditation with Ryan students signing and blind children singing.

WHEN William Brannick was a sophomore, he learned that his school in Chester, St. James Catholic High School for Boys, would be closed. "You felt confused and, in a sense, you felt alone and abandoned," Brannick, 34, said yesterday. "At that age, as an adolescent, you felt that life could not go on from that point. " But it did. Brannick's life went on at Monsignor Bonner High School, in Drexel Hill, where he transferred as a junior and thrived. In the 16 years since he graduated, there were only two years when Brannick wasn't intimately involved with Bonner in some way, either as coach, teacher, administrator, or all three.

Throughout this past offseason, one of the biggest topics of conversation has been the upcoming inaugural season of the West Jersey Football League. It's been hard to miss, ignore or, in some cases, fathom what effect the new, 65-team amalgamation of schools formerly in the Burlington County League, Olympic Conference, Tri-County Conference and Colonial Valley Conference will have on South Jersey football. Granted, those leagues still survive for other sports, but, for football, this is an uncharted territory.

The importance of last night's game was not lost on Timber Creek senior Steve Moore. "It was kind of scary," Moore said. "I just had to face my fears and do what I do best. Now all we can do is move on. " Moore scored all of his team-high 14 points in the second half of Timber Creek's 49-44 win over sister school Highland in the opening round of the Group 3 Tournament.
