Vorstand of the School Association

The School Association is represented by the Vorstand. As a team of six, we are in charge of the Association’s activities and we continue to develop our school in cooperation with the headmaster

During the regular annual meeting, the School Association elects the six members of the Vorstand, which is responsible for the finances of the school and is in charge of its routine activities. A maximum of two of the six members can be elected from the group “Friends and Supporters” (“Freunde und Förderer”). The term of office of each Vorstand member is two years. The members of the Vorstand fulfil their task in an honorary capacity. During its meetings, the Vorstand is supported in an advisory capacity by a representative of the German Institute, the headmaster and the chairperson of the Parents’ Council. The statutes (approved by the Foreign Ministry of the Federal Republic of Germany) and the Rules of Procedure based on these govern the details of the Vorstand’s work. The Vorstand elects a chairperson from among its members. The areas of responsibility of each Vorstand member are determined during a meeting at the beginning of the school year. The  Vorstand can delegate special issues to extended bodies.

The meetings of the SVorstand are convened on a monthly basis.

The Vorstand generally manages all affairs of the Association. These include:

  • employment and dismissal of the headmaster (in close consultation with the Foreign Ministry), teachers and other school staff of the German School Taipei,
  • consultations and adoption of the budget estimate for the new financial year,
  • allocation of the financial resources required by the school,
  • supervision and compliance with the budget, etc.
