Parents General Committee ("Elternrat")
At the beginning of each year, during the Parentsí Evenings, parent representatives are elected from each class to form a Parents General Committee. This Committee meets twice a school year. Selected representatives of the Parents General Committee take part in the Teachers' Conferences and in the School Board meetings.
|Chairperson||Dr. Ernst Tenambergen|
|Deputy Chairperson||Sandra Sallat|
From the Parents General Committee representatives, one or two members from each sub-section of the school are chosen by the Committee to form the Parents Sub-Committee. This Committee meets on a monthly basis, and deals with all matters of concern to the parents.
The members for the academic year 2012/2013 are: Dr. Ernst Tenambergen (Chairperson Parents General Committee); Sandra Sallat (Deputy Chairperson Parents General Committee); Sarah Reusche (Kindergarten); Woki Muhindi (Primary School); Michaela Wilken (Lower Secondary); Barbara Alcamo (Upper Secondary); Simon Muchiri Karanja (scholarship students)
The PSC meets monthly. Sandra Sallat, the PSC Chair is also deputy chair to the GPC. Ralph Peters as the liaison officer of the Board participates and thus helps to shorten ways of communication. Ernst Tenambergen as GPC Chair has brief weekly meetings with the headmaster. Sandra Sallat participates in the meetings of the Teachers Conference (TC). Barbara Alcamo as member of the PSC joins the session of the Steering Group (SG) for school development.
Briefly summarized the PSC has the role:
of fostering good communication between parents, school management, teachers, students and Board, addressing generally perceived problems in due time and constructively, mediating in the case of individual problems, presenting proposal from the parent body and of joining the efforts to organize common events.
Current tasks so far are:
joining the efforts of the work groups for the implementation of improvements, which the external evaluators recommended in November 2010, strengthening communication between parents, parents’ representatives and the PSC as well as with the headmaster and the board.
Special activities for this school year:
Introduction of a monthly parents coffee morning at the Cafeteria, decoration of the church in Tigoni for the christmas concert on December, 9th, planning of a summer festival.
You are welcome to offer your ideas to the PSC any time. In case of questions arising, parents are kindly asked to contact either their parents’ representative or the PSC directly. After each PSC Meeting, parents will receive our minutes via their parents’ representatives. This way you will always know what we are working on and communicate your ideas and wishes.
