Events of the PA
Our school is organizing several spectacular whole school events over the school year which bring the community together (Christmas Concerts, Back-to-School Party, LIK Family Fun to name just a few). The PA is supporting these efforts with manpower and expertise. Events like this provide an opportunity for members of the community to get to know one another in an informal setting and to ask questions about life in Leipzig or about LIS in general.
The PA has managed to established parent led events throughout the school year to fulfill their goals, help to develop the school garden and fundraise money for various projects.
- Tag des offenen Schulgartens
Every year we participate in the nationwide open day for school gardens. We open our doors not just for the community but also for the people living in the neighborhood. Children and parents are invited to join Garden Tours and Workshops organized by the school garden commitee.
- Teachers/Staff Appreciation Lunch
In December Room Parents and Secondary Representatives with the help of the PA Leadership Team organize our special annual celebration to say thanks to our teachers and staff.
- Potluck Picknick
We organise a summer picnic to review the school year and to say goodbye to each other. Everyone brings a traditional dish from his/her home country.
- Farmers Market
A few times a year we sell our harvest, plants and the great products from our garden (e.g. chutneys, pesto, soap or syrup). These Farmers Markets are organized by CAS students and parents to fundraise the school garden.
- Garden Workout
Every Tuesday morning we meet to actually work in our school garden, have a chat with parents and enjoy drinking some coffee.
- Garden Academy
In the winter months when the weather is to cold to work in the garden we use the time to organize little workshops. We share our knowledge, teach and learn from each other. All products will be sold in the LIS Farmers Market. Click here to see how we made beeswax food wraps.
- Neighborhood Planting Project
We planted the tree beds in front of the school with bee friendly plants as a contribution to an environmental awareness within our neighborhood. We care for them together with our Hort children on a regular basis. We always look for volunteers. Click here to find out more about this neighborhood project.
