Welcome to the website of GGS (Primary School) Carl Orff!
On this website we compiled a catalogue of important information about life and learning at the GGS Carl Orff. The variety of this information can be divided into three topics:
- First, we present past and current events of our school life, such as festivals and celebrations, trips or visits to places of extracurricular learning.
The link „Classrooms“ leads to the project area of the classes and the working groups (in german: AGs). Here our pupils present their ideas and results in the form of text and pictures. The link „Teacher´s lounge" introduces the staff of our school; clicking on „Our School“ enables a short virtual tour through the GGS Carl Orff.
Concerning current events I want to refer you to the "News Ticker" at the bottom of this page.
- A second focus is the service platform for parents. Important forms and the parents' booklet are available in the „Download“- section.
The „School News“ informs you about events and dates of the forthcoming weeks and months. Information papers of the Parents´ and the Supporters´ Association are also provided on our website.
- We want to arrange your child's elementary school to an eventful, educational and personality developing period. In order to show the way to this aim we would like to introduce our educational priorities
and guiding principles under the link „Education/ Pedagogy“.
Our point of view is not restricted to purely curricular aspects, it also includes the school as a social living and working space with issues such as education for tolerance and cooperation, conflict resolution or health promotion. In this context, the concepts and the practical implementation of the open all-day-school ("OGS") and the common teaching ("GU") at the GGS Carl Orff are described under the corresponding links.
We also want to present you the positive outcome of our previous and actual educational activities. For this purpose the results of a quality evaluation by the Bertelsmann Foundation ("SEIS") are placed on our homepage.
Of course, we can provide only a small insight into our school life at this point. But this insight should encourage you to contact or to visit us
