Hike to Monte Troodelöh with the PTA
The PTA starts this school year with an outdoor activity: a circular walk of about 7 kilometres in the Königsforst, east of Cologne, to Monte Troodelöh. As usual with PTA activities, ALL parents and staff of IFK/CIS are cordially invited! A great opportunity to get to know other people.


Date and time
This walk will take place on Saturday, October 3rd 2020, from 11:00 am.


What will we do?
As soon as the group is complete, we will walk from the starting point over wide forest paths to Monte Troodelöh. In between we will stop for a small picnic with food we brought ourselves. The total walk is about 7 kilometres long. Once back at the starting point, we can visit the local Biergarten and/or the adjacent playground, which is suitable for children up to the age of 13. At any time of the day you can decide to go home earlier if you wish. The forest paths (gravel paths) are well passable for a pram with large wheels.


What should you take with you?
You only need to bring something to eat and drink for a picnic, and optionally money for a drink. Don't bring too much food for the picnic though, because you will have to carry it :-)


Sign up and further questions
For the organisation it is good to know who would like to participate. If you would like to come, please send an e-mail to info@ptakoeln.de in which you write with how many participants you would like to take part. We will then send you the exact meeting point. If you have any further questions, please also send an e-mail to info@ptakoeln.de.

The beautiful six-week summer holiday is over again. Many children (and probably their parents too ;-) ... ) are looking forward to seeing all those classmates and teachers again. Welcome back for school year 2020/2021!

The PTA will keep you posted on the events that will take place during this school year.

Best wishes,

PTA Board

"The more parents participate in schooling, in a sustained way, at every level -- in advocacy, decision-making and oversight roles, as fund-raisers and boosters, as volunteers and para-professionals, and as home teachers -- the better for student achievement.”

(Williams, D.L. & Chavkin, N.F., Essential elements of strong parent involvement programs, 1989.)



Heute am Schulleben der Kinder teilnehmen - das ist uns wichtig. Werden Sie Klassenvertreter/in, gründen, übernehmen oder unterstützen Sie Projekte in der PTA.


„Je mehr sich Eltern nachhaltig in der Schule ihrer Kinder einbringen, sprich als Fürsprecher bei Entscheidungen, bei der Betreuung, als Sponsoren und Sponsorensucher, als Freiwillige, als Para-Professionelle in bestimmten Bereichen, oder als Lehrer zu Hause - desto besser wird der Erfolg des Kindes ausfallen."
