School supplies

For a good start to the new school year

The summer holidays are the longest holidays of the year. Students can relax for eight weeks, enjoy the beautiful weather with friends and go on holiday with their parents.

But then the inevitable happens: After the fun comes the work, school!

Every year parents are faced with a big shopping list and have to get everything their children need that year. Buying the books on the book list is not enough. Does the child need a new satchel, a new pencil case or new pens?

With each year the number of school subjects and the material needed increases. To make your work easier, we have compiled the school materials you need for each school year. This way you can keep track and always bring the right school material with you.

Please note that some materials can be purchased from the school shop. You can find more details in the PDF document. Please engrave all items (even small items such as sharpeners and erasers) with your child’s name!

All school books are available at the school and do not have to be brought from Germany. On the first school day of the new school year they will be handed out in the library. The books are paid for together with the school fees.

However, if anything was lost…

Our caretaker and cleaning teams collect all objects as well as clothes and books left in the schoolyard. The lost items are collected in a cupboard next to the cafeteria. Every Friday these items are hung on the railing near the main entrance. Please check there regularly or contact the secretary’s office so that you can look in the lost property cupboard.
