A warm welcome from our principal

A warm welcome to Deutsche Schule Melbourne (DSM)!

We are a German English bilingual school that offers a unique and successful learning program. We are convinced that excellence in education and fun in learning leads to academic success and social-emotional well-being for our students. Everybody at DSM is determined to co-create a fun and safe learning environment, which equally challenges and individually supports our students.

As principal, I am grateful for the opportunity to drive and guide this co-creation process for DSM. We highly value our partnership in education with parents. This partnership is an integral part of our daily collaboration and school development – always focusing on the benefit of our students.

Right from my first day I have experienced the abundant positive energy of this place. This energy is not only displayed in everyday teaching, but also in the dedication of our staff to constantly improve DSM in a consistent and reasonable manner.

My first-hand experience in combination with the very constructive and trusting school community-feel leads to my conviction that we will continue to constantly improve this wonderful bilingual education which we offer, to ensure that our students are best equipped to meet the challenges in a global society - as critically thinking, curious and strong individuals.
