Welcome to the homepage of the German School Nairobi! Karibu mgeni!
We are delighted about your interest in the German School Nairobi. Our school offers a demanding, high-quality education for German as well as foreign-speaking children and for students from our host country Kenya.
Our school's bilingual profile will be further accentuated and enhanced by the impending introduction of the "Deutsche Internationale Abitur" (German International High School Diploma / School Leaving Examination Certificate) which will, at the same time, help to maintain our high quality standard and international competitiveness.
At present, 182 students from 30 different nationalities attend classes at our school. Our extensive compound also accommodates our bilingual kindergarten (102 children) and our boarding house offering 20 places.
For further information please link up with the relevant pages via the main menu.
Dear Parents and Students,
At the end of this year my husband and I are expecting our first child.
The school administration is open from 16 to 20 December and 02 to 08 January from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.. The school is closed from 23 December to 1 January. First school day is 9 January 2014.
The ordered calendars can be picked up at the reception from Monday, 9th December 12 a. m..
Last Thursday all Kindergarten children celebrated St. Nicolas Day with a big party in the sports hall.
This academic year's first event organised by students was the ''autumn disco'' for all students between grade 4 and 7.
September and October in Germany. What may one imagine? Cold? Probably. Rain? Sometimes. We, class 11 experienced all these and more during our trip to south Germany.
Here are the resolutions from the last school board meeting:
Even though we are physically far away from Germany, our students still participated in the Reading Day, organised by the foundation "LESEN und die ZEIT". This event takes place all over Germany.
On Wednesday 20th November 2013, on the International Children's Day of the United Nations, the children of Primary and Preschool of the German School Nairobi met to have a breakfast picnic.
On the 14th of November 2013, Class 4 students of the GSN made their way to the Norwegian School. The journey was very long, but finally we were there, and had to go straight to the sports field. Other schools, such as the Japanese and the Swedish schools were also there.
St. Martin's songs filled the air at the German School Nairobi, as the children of the Kindergarten and the Primary School celebrated Martinmas with songs they had been long practising. The event took place on Friday the 9th of November on the school grounds.
We are delighted to announce that Katherine Kitur, Class 10 has been selected to be a reporter in the Press Corps at the forthcoming East African Model United Nations (February 2014).
The German School's annual Athletics Games took place onTuesday the 5th of November.
A cloudless sky and lots of sunshine: the weather could have not been more perfect for the Summer Party at the school. The large variety of activities and games promised a fun-filled afternoon for the young and not-so-young alike!
On the 23rd of October 2013, we had a Primary School Assembly. Our new Headmistress, Ms Myburgh wanted to introduce herself to us.
The primary school section of the German school took part in a childrens art competition held at the Sarit Centre last weekend.
On the 2nd of October, the children of classes 1 and 2 made a grand appearance at the reception of the German Embassy, which took place to celebrate the German Reunification Day, as well as 50 years of Kenyan- German relations.
Here are the resolutions from the last school board meeting:
On the 19th and 20th of September, Classes 2 - 5 participated in this year's annual Hay Festival, a festival that is organised by Storymoja.
More than 500,000 students from 2,264 schools (49 of them being German Schools Abroad) participated in the Junior Election, a project for the political education of students in the framework of the recently concluded German National Elections. Students from Classes 8 - 12 from our school also voted on Friday last week.
On 04th of September the Student's Council for the academic year 2013/14 was elected.
At the beginning of the new academic year we could welcome five new interns at the German School. They will stay with us until December and give valuable support to the Primary School, SEk I and II as well as the social education and counselling.
The first day at school is always something special for every child. Children receive a "Schultuete" (a cone-shaped bag filled with goodies!) that is almost as big as the child himself, filled with sweets and other small presents. Children also get to know other new school kids, who are just as excited as they are to start school. And if all that is not enough, the children are welcomed to the school with their very own celebration. This is what the children of Class 1 at the GSN were able to enjoy on the 29th of August 2013, their first day at school.
Students who would like to do their homework or to study between the lunch break and the extracurricular activities starting at 3.30 p.m. can register for the new "study time AG" taking place from Monday to Thursday.
For 24 children the serious side of life started yesterday and so it was quite understandable that they were very excited and curious on their first school day at the German School Nairobi.
In addition to the tennis club and the German School Football Centre there will be a new sports initiative at the German School starting in September 2013 which is open to all members of the school as well as to external persons: The German School Swim Centre
