The Support and Challenge Programme in the Primary School

Our Primary School not only forms the foundation of the German School Nairobi, but also stands as a school in itself, independent of its secondary section. Based on its "learn through play" methodology, the school aims to equip its students with basic skills, capabilities and a readiness to continue with their education in the German or indeed in any other school system. The school aims to form a "complete" person. The school bases each child's education on his / her pre-school, as well as outside school experiences, and ties these with the child's current development stage. It thus gently leads the child into the world of school and learning, aiming to develop the child's social as well as his / her learning abilities.

(cf. Syllabus for Primary School and Special Needs Primary School, Thuringia Ministry of Culture and Education).

In accordance with this task, we strive to challenge and support our children in equal measures. In an everyday situation, this means we aim to strengthen their strengths and weaken their weaknesses! It goes without saying that the prerequisite for us to fulfil this task is to identify each child's strengths and weaknesses. Only then can we begin to implement this programme.

For those children who have setbacks or learning difficulties, we use all the didactic, methodical and pedagogical tools available to us, to assist them in gaining basic abilities and skills. On the other hand, for those children who are particularly gifted and talented, who can complete their work much faster than their peers, we provide additional stimulus material, so that they are able to further develop their talents and interests in the extra time they have.

The "Support and Challenge Programme in the Primary School" was adopted during the Teachers' Meeting in June 2011. You can download the current version here as a PDF document.
