Parent representatives

Parent's activities

The German School New Delhi (DSND) welcomes parent involvement and parents have ample opportunity to take an active part in school and kindergarten life. Parent representatives and the school management are always open to suggestions. The parent council comprises elected representatives from the individual classes, kindergarten and Sternschnuppen. We usually meet once a month to talk about the school programme, discuss problems and work out solutions. Issues for discussion can include security in the school, school holidays or pedagogical aspects. Our presence is normally felt at school events. For instance, we are in charge of the DSND stall at the annual Christmas market, which is organised by the Indo-German Chamber of Commerce and is held at the school grounds. We traditionally offer waffles, mulled wine and children's punch for sale-and, of course, German Christmas specialities. Parents are not the only ones to help out with the beer, cakes and the sale of goods-the teachers also pitch in. St. Martin's Day is organised together with the ministers from the German-speaking Catholic and Protestant community, while Carnival and Sport's Day are managed by parents and teachers. Parent representatives and kindergarten teachers also organise a Sports and Fun Day for the kindergarten. We would like these activities to enhance the community spirit and we welcome everyone to join in.

The „Elternbeirat“ enjoys a special role of trust with parents, teachers and the School Board. It ...

  • offers parents the opportunity to inform themselves and to speak out
  • promotes trusting relations between parents and teachers / school staff
