About us

The PTA is a volunteer led, not for profit, registered Parent Teacher Association and is an active and diverse organisation within the IFK/CIS. It supports community life through volunteer work and financial donations to the school. All sections of the School - Primary School, bilingual Grammar School and International School - are supported by the PTA.


All parents and guardians are welcome to join the PTA. All PTA projects and activities are run by PTA committees like Welcome, Library, Fund raising, Events, Web, Shop, Yearbook, Carnival and More Sports. The PTA holds open meetings every month.

Please note the special service for our international families:

If you consider visiting our school on one of the regular Open House days (24th September 2016; 28th January 2017) or on any other day, please don´t forget to ask for our 'Welcome Booklet'. This guide was generated by the PTA of the Cologne International School. The information compiled in there is from the recommendations and experiences of parents in the IFK/CIS community.

Regardless of whether your stay at IFK/CIS will be short or whether this will be a permanent move for your family, we hope that you find our school community warm and welcoming.
