Events and equipment (e.g. calculators) weight on the family budget. The school skiing weeks require professional and expensive equipement, and are expensive. Same applies to sport weeks and trips abroad. The Elternverein organizes a flea market for sports equipment every year during the first teacher-parents conference, where you can sell and buy sports equipment.
The state of Lower Austria and the Elternverein of the BG/BRG Klosterneuburg — International School are therefore offering financial aid. Besides, together with Rotary, the Elternverein was able to set up a “social fund” for particular cases of hardship. The amout of the aid is related to the household income and the costs of the specific event.
To apply for financial aid, it is sufficient to hand in an application based on the form provided below stating the costs of the event, your contact and bank details.
The form can be downloaded here.
Please tick the case for support by the social fund if you want to apply for an aid above the 150⁄200 € that the Elternverein can sponsor.
Send you application to firstname.lastname@example.org or hand it in at the school office. Ms. Veyder-Malberg will contact you. All question and applications are treated strictly confidential. Neither the school staff nor you child will know about it.
If you have any questions, please contact Ms Romana Michail (phone: 02243 321 55 50) or Ms. Bettina Veyder-Malberg (0669÷10 708 740).
By decision of the SGA (statutory elected panel of teachers, pupils and parents at Austrian secondary schools), school events must not exceed 110 € per day, a secret ballot has to be held within the class, with a weekends´ reflection time.
