Director’s Welcome

Director’s Welcome

Dear parents, dear students

I would like to welcome you all to the new school year. I hope you had a nice and relaxing holiday despite the limited opportunities and were able to recharge your batteries for the new school year. I am especially pleased to welcome all students and teachers back to the classroom again! It was certainly also a great moment for you, dear students, to see all your classmates and friends again – even if “masked”.

Due to the still present Corona pandemic, this school year, as well as last year, will not be a normal school year and we will always have to be careful about the health and safety of our students and staff. It is therefore particularly important that we all work together to ensure that the barrier gestures and hygiene rules are observed. I would like to ask you, dear parents, for your active support by reminding your children of these rules again and again.

You will always find up-to-date information on our hygiene rules and other important tips in our special FAQs on this website.
Furthermore, we must be aware that all decisions taken by the Luxembourg government and the management can be adapted at any time to changes in the national and/or international health situation and that a change in the rules will always remain possible.

As you have certainly noticed, our website has been given a facelift. Our aim was to make the layout more attractive and the navigation more user-friendly. We are continuing to work on a gradual completion and on the translations so that in the end the entire homepage will be available in the three working languages English, German and French.

The Whole School Inspection of our school by external evaluators, which took place in 2018, gave us the recommendation of a cyclical self-evaluation with the participation of the entire school community. This took place in November 2019 and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for your participation and feedback. In the meantime, the results are available and we will be able to present them in the near future. We will keep you informed as to how this can be done in view of the current situation.

We would like to organise – as we do every year – a wealth of events that are so important for the entire school community. At present, however, no medium or long-term plans can be made. This concerns, for example, the traditional Christmas market and the school fête, which we had to cancel with a heavy heart last school year. Of course, we will keep you informed about developments here as well.

Now it remains for me to wish you all a successful school year 2020/2021.

Stay healthy!

Sincerely

M. Wedel
Director
