Parent Council

The parents’ council task is to represent the interests of parents. The Parent Representative Counci is elected by the parents’ representatives and forms the link between the school management and parents. The Parents’ Council is chaired by Mrs Dorina Hacker, her deputy is Mr Martin Fischbach.

An essential component at German schools, and especially German schools abroad, is parental work. This year, the parents’ council was formed by chairwoman Dorina Hacker and her deputy Martin Fischbach. Both have several years of experience at the school and are also involved in committees/ working groups of the school to represent the voice of the parents on pedagogical topics (Steering Group) and social issues (Prevention Group).
The work in the committees, together with school management and board of directors, as well as teachers, administrative representatives, but also our school social pedagogue and the student council also means a great transparency and will is additionally supported by the help of groups also organized by parents, such as the “Event Team”.

Student Council

The pupils’ council is made up of the class representatives of the individual classes and represents the interests of the entire student body. The student’s council is headed by Megan Näpfle and Junes Huber from class 12.

In German “SMV” stands for “Schülermitverwaltung” which means student council. The student council at GISAD functions as the decision-making apparatus of the student body. Members of the student council are two class speakers of each grade and two teachers of trust. During the first hearing of the student council the class speakers and teachers of trust are voted for and then continue to organize sessions. These sessions enabled the respective classes to discuss vital matters and concerns of students which the SMV then try to implement. Please do not hesitate to ask in case further questions arise:
