The School Board

The School Board is, at the same time, Board of the School Society and its legally responsible body. The board consists of eight members with a tenure of two years each. At the annual general members' meeting half the board members resign or stand for re-election respectively.

The board itself determines its chairman, deputy chairman, secretary, chairman of the finance committee and members of the various committees. The current board has a finance and planning as well as a human resources committee. The board's school liaison attends all general school conferences and parents' council meetings (without voting rights).

The school board represents the German School Nairobi in all matters legal and otherwise and makes statutory declarations on the school's behalf.

It is the board's special task and responsibility to choose and sign on the school principal based on the recommendations by the Central Office for Overseas Schools (Zentralstelle für Auslandsschulwesen - BVA) as well as recruit and extend existing contracts of service of teaching and administrative personnel. In consultation and cooperation and with the school principal and the administration manager the board takes decisions on all the school's financial and economic matters (budget and school fees) and approves the school and conference regulations.
