Open All Day (School Clubs)

Since August 2010, the AVS has been an “open all-day school”, i.e. we offer different types of projects from Monday to Friday, in which pupils can participate voluntarily.
In addition there is a „Wartezeitbetreuung“ from Monday to Thursday (eng.: waiting time care) where students can do fun things and wait for their bus or their parents. They can also do their homework there with older pupils or teachers.

A warm lunch is also provided in our modern canteen.

If not agreed differently, the projects will begin on February 13, 2023!

Waiting time care and homework care take place

Drawing trees, leaves, landscape, moulding, collecting –

Right next to the school there is a park that used to be a “tree garden” (arboretum, from the Latin arbor = tree). This has long been forgotten, but can still be seen or at least imagined on signs and walls. And that’s why there are so many exotic trees that don’t actually exist here!

When the weather is good, we want to go in the park and in the adjacent forest to look for these trees, identify them, draw them and collect their parts and when the weather is bad, we want to draw at school, cast moulds, press leaves and blossoms and then create our own “tree diaries” with all the samples we have collected and our pictures.

  • The support association of AVS e.V. is the sponsor of the open all-day school. As it bears the entire financial risk, joining is very welcome!t! For children whose parents are not members of the association, an additional half-yearly fee of €5 will be charged for administrative expenses. As we would like to enable every child to participate in the projects of the open all-day school, we ask you to contact us if participation is not possible for financial reasons.


  • The projects run for the duration of half a school year, after which a change is possible. Anyone who has decided to take part after the first two visits to a project commits to participating for half a year. Late registrations are only possible if there is free capacity, the costs will then be calculated accordingly.


  • Participation in the projects of the open all-day school is basically voluntary, but you also commit to regular participation. We would therefore like to ask you to give your child an excuse to ensure supervision or to cancel your child’s registration by telephone in the office if he or she is unable to attend.


  • No liability can be accepted for unauthorized leaving of the school premises.


  • If there are too many registrations for a project, an attempt will be made to offer another similar project. If that doesn’t work, a lot will be drwn.


  • The projects will start on February 13, 2023, so submit your registration to the form teacher or the office (pigeon-hole of the OGTS) by February 9, 2023 at the latest. However, later submission and participation is usually still possible if projects have found a sufficient number of participants and can therefore take place.

The list of participants is duly hung up (probably by February 10th) in the OGTS – display case. PLEASE LOOK UP !
