Introduction of the newly elected representatives of GER and SER

As you will most likely know, the General Parent’s Council (GER) serves to listen to parents’ ideas, concerns, and requests, as well as functioning as a communication channel to inform parents about progress and challenges within the school. It is made up of two elected parent representatives of each class (Head / Deputy). The GER meets four times per year (September, November, March, and June) with representatives from the board, the school management, the teaching staff, and the student body.

The first meeting of the GER for the school year 2022/2023 took place on September 14th, with a substantial number of the new parent class representatives being present.

Berit Kadoch-Lattorff announced that she was stepping down after heading the GER for 4 years. The Head of School and the parent representatives expressed their deep gratitude to her commitment for the School Community during her time of service over the last years.

During the meeting, Johanna Braack was elected as the Head of the GER, and Milena Weichelt was confirmed as the Deputy of the GER for the upcoming school year 2022/2023.

Additionally, the members of the GER elected a Head and a Deputy Representative for the four Parent Sub-Committees (SER) which represent each school section, these being Primary School (classes 1-4), Secondary I (cl. 5 – 9), Secondary II (cl. 10 – 12) and Scholarship Pupils. The SER meets monthly with the Chair of the GER and a representative of the Board in order to discuss topics that affect all parents. If deemed necessary, topics will be taken by the GER Chair for further discussions to the school management, teaching body, administration or student body.

We are happy to confirm and introduce the following (new) representatives of the SER:
Caroline Lackmaier & Florine Stammler (SER Primary);
Francis Oluoch & Katarina Leligdonova (SER SEK I);
Thomas Braun & Laetitia Zobel (SER SEK II); and
Lilian Wangechi & Rita Karoki (Scholarship Students).

Our mission is to facilitate communication among parents and the school. We believe that our school is a community and that we as parents have a role to play in maximizing the potential of our school to be a nourishing space for our children to develop their full potential.

Please do not hesitate to find us and to talk to us in case you have ideas or challenges you would like to discuss. We are there for you. Talk to us either personally or via email (JohannaBraack@hotmail.com or milena_silverart@yahoo.com).

Sincerely,
Your SER
