In the beginning of summer 2018, a group of parents and students from the Wangari Maathai International School together with some Nelson Mandela School families planted sunflowers and sowed flower seeds in front of the school house to start the Wangari Maathai
Garden. By the end of summer it had turnedinto a wonderful wilderness with amazing colours, smells and busy bees welcoming all the new families at the Einschulung of 2018.
In 2019, the project went into the responsibility of teachers and educators. The association provides the financial resources for the garden. An application for third-party funding was successfully submitted to the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf district office. As part of the project "Freiwilliges Engagement in Nachbarschaften (FEIN)" - engl. Voluntary Engagement in Neighbourhoods - we have been granted up to 2500 EUR for the Project in 2019.
We hope to continue the project of the Wangari Maathai Garden with all the school families that wish to take part in the years to come.
Kids in Need
In order to give every child at our school the same access to school events, the association has launched the project "Kids in Need". The association has at its disposal a budget set by the general meeting from the annual funds.
If there is a need (e.g. for initial equipment, excursions, school trips), please contact the class teacher, the school management or directly the board of directors.
