Dear parents, dear members of the German School Society, at the last general meeting, on November 9, 2021, you elected the School Society board. Irina Mosel was confirmed as an additional board member, so that the board now consists of eight members. In the subsequent constituent 689th board meeting, the functions within the board were allocated as follows:
|Katharina von Maltzan||Chair + Marketing, Communications & Sports|
|Michael Lattorff||Deputy Chair + Buildings|
|Ilja Marcus Burchard||Secretary + Chair Buildings|
|Stefan Hasler||Deputy Finance Committee + Deputy Secretary & Buildings|
|Suranahi Kabuga||Deputy HR Committee|
|Manuela Leimgruber||Chair HR Committee|
|Frank Loeffler||Chair Finance Committee|
|Irina Mosel||SER (Parents Council)|
The school board takes over many important functions. These include the legal representation of the school society, the definition of the economic framework of the GSN, the role as employer and especially the formulation of the strategic direction and the definition of the future development of the school in close cooperation with the school and administration management. In principle, all parents whose children are enrolled in the German School Nairobi and who feel connected to our school have the opportunity to get involved in the school society. In the working groups and as parent representatives as well as during the twice-yearly general meetings, you as parents have the opportunity to directly influence the design of the GSN and contribute your ideas, experience and skills to continuously improve the German School Nairobi.
We would like to take this opportunity to once again thank the parents who virtually attended the November 9, 2021 General Meeting, who confirmed and elected the Board, and who voted on the following issues:
− At this general meeting, the board was relieved and the annual financial statements for 2020/2021 were approved.
− Mr. Benjamin Grädler and Mr. Marten Sievers were elected as internal auditors
− Ms Sarah Reusche was confirmed as trustee and Mr. Thomas Braun was elected as additional trustee. Thus, all four positions of trustees are now filled together as Ms Daniella Pleitz and Mr. Jürgen Prieske were already elected at the general meeting on November 12, 2020.
