Co-Curricular Enrichment Program
Our Erzieher*innen are responsible for the Co-Curricular Enrichment Program at our school. They take care of our early/late care supervision, our immersion activities throughout the school day, as well as the program during the school holidays. In the afternoons, our Erzieher*innen, teachers and external club leaders offer a variety of clubs for the children.
Our school’s Ganztag team actively and enthusiastically shape school life. Within the full-day program, our Erzieher*innen hold responsibilities that go far beyond the level of care traditionally offered before school and in the afternoon. This involves both Support-Teaching, that is, lessons planned together with the teacher, and the organisation and implementation of various and varied full-day offerings. These take place throughout the school day and are linked to the content of the lessons or result from the development phases, the children’s interests and current issues facing children and young people.
In Years 1 to 6, each school class has its own Class Erzieher. The children are accompanied through the day by their class Erzieher – during Support-Teaching in class, during Ganztag and study periods, during class council, on project days, at school events, during breaks and meals together in the canteen. They are important persons of trust and support the children in their learning and language acquisition as well as in their personal development. Together with the class teacher, the class Erzieher*in forms the class leadership team. Both colleagues work together as equals in order to support the children as best as possible in their academic learning and in their social development.
The also plan and organize the afternoon program with over 30 clubs for all age groups as well as the exciting and varied holiday program for Years 1 to 6.
We offer our secondary school students in Years 7 to 10 special clubs according to their interests and with more demanding tasks, as well as consultations with the subject teachers, support with homework, more personal responsibility in the regular class council and in the school committees, and challenging projects.
Below you will find all the clubs we are offering this school year:
FAQ on our Co-Curricular Enrichment Program
Lessons begin at 8:10 for all students. The class or subject teachers are present in the class rooms from 8:00 and supervise the children as they start their school day in a quiet and organised way.
Depending on the grade and the day of the week, the compulsory school day for each class ends between 13:30 and 15:30.
In order to make the school day as comfortable as possible for all students and have the daily routine run smoothly, the daily schedules for grades 1 and 2 vary from grades 3 and 4, and grades 5 to 10 in lessons, Co-Curricular Enrichment and break times. In this way, we ensure a quiet lunch time, relaxed break times in the schoolyard and optimal utilisation of the subject rooms. Each class receive their timetables and daily schedules at the beginning of the school year.
Our afternoon program takes places between 13:30/15:30 (depending on the day of the week) and 18:00, with lots of clubs in either the English or German language. These clubs are made up of school students from all classes.
For all primary school students in grades 1 to 6, afternoon supervision is provided until either 4 pm or 6 pm, according to the individual supervision vouchers. This consists of free play time in the schoolyard or in our spacious early/late care room on the ground floor.
Our school library is also open five afternoons per week and on four afternoons, the students have the opportunity to finish their homework in the homework hoom.
Through this regular alternation of phases, which either demand increased attention or phases which practice relaxation, we accommodate the natural daily rhythm of the students.
In addition, individual, partner, group and station work, and other working methods change over the course of the school day.
This enables us to achieve optimal learning conditions for the children in all subjects and immersion activities throughout the day.
Lunch is prepared according to nutritional principles and delivered by the catering company Löwenzahn. Parents provide children with a healthy breakfast, an afternoon snack, and a water bottle with water or sugar-free tea. Students can fill up their water bottles at our water dispenser during the school day. Morning breakfast is served in the classroom before or after schoolyard break.
