Who we are

Platanus & Friends is our non-profit Friends Association. We are an interested community of parents, teachers and Erzieher who work voluntarily in the interests of all Platanus children. We support the kindergarten, primary school, secondary school and the Ganztag program, encourage pedagogical projects and clubs, organise events and celebrations and dedicate ourselves to the beautification of the school and kindergarten buildings as well as the outside areas. The necessary financial means for our association’s work comes from targeted fundraising.

Projects and Events

We support many projects and events within the school and kindergarten – both one off and recurring events. What are they? Simply open the menu below and have a look!

Magic Movie Night – since 2014

The MMN is a firm fixture in our school calendar for children, parents, our team and is a welcome change from the school routine – with films, popcorn, drinks and disco music.

Sponsored Run– since 2015

The sponsored run takes place independently of Sports Day at the Schlosspark. It is also traditionally connected with the working bee in our school yard. Of course with catering.
