The goal of friends of siss is to support the international school community at the Schuldorf
Bergstrasse. Here is some of what we have supported along the way.
Teaching resources from Letterland were supplied to the Preschool. Letterland publishes award-winning Early Years and Key Stage 1 resources for teaching foundational literacy skills, phonics, spelling and grammar.
Frames for artwork
ArtsLab students contributed artwork centred on the theme “Home” for the Bensheim Hospiz. The frames were supplied by friends of siss.
Timetables were provided to the students at the beginning of the year to help them keep an overview of their lessons. An editable version is also available on our webpage (downloads).
All students in Primary received a Student Planner which was subsidised by friends of siss. The planner is not just to note homework but offers a link between schools, students and parents.

The plaques in the secondary building show all the names of past students who have graduated with the IB Diploma at SISS.
