DISDH is a meeting place where the parents of our pupils can also feel at home. With us, you as parents can make your first contacts in the Netherlands, make friends and attend interesting cultural events. We want you as parents to feel welcome in our school community. In doing so, we take our task of supporting families in settling into their new environment very seriously.

There are many different opportunities to participate in our school life, in whatever area your talents and interests lie. Help organise our school festivals, take part in our excursions or Christmas workshop, volunteer in the library, and pass on your knowledge to the pupils by advising at the job fair or leading one of our AGs! The dedicated commitment of parents makes our school community strong, and you can contribute to this. We look forward to your help!

Parents Council

The Parents’ Council of DISDH stands for transparency and active participation of parents in school activities. The committee compromises the parent representatives of all school classes, the kindergarten as well as the afternoon programme. These representatives are elected at the beginning of the school year by the parents of the respective classes or groups.

The Parents’ Council aims to support and advise the school management and the school board in the further development of our school. The Parents’ Council is particularly involved when it comes to educational issues, learning programmes or practical topics such as house rules. Wishes and suggestions expressed by the parents are discussed here and then presented to the school management and the board. In addition, the advisory board sees an important task in giving new families at DISDH an open welcome and making it easier for them to get started in their new environment.

Parents’ Council 2022/2023:

Chairperson of the Parents’ Council: Mr. Michael Ball and Mrs. Agata Chramega

The many special activities at DISDH are only possible with the help and support of our pupils’ parents. We would like to encourage all parents to actively participate in shaping our school life this way, thus contributing to good cooperation. No matter in which area your strengths and interests lie or how much time you can devote. We are sure that there is a place where you can contribute. For some initiatives, regular help is needed. Other activities and events take place once. If you would like to support DISDH as a volunteer, simply contact us. Then we look at the options together before you make a decision.

You can get involved in so many different ways: As a helper in our library, in organising festivities at the school, as a parent representative, as a chaperone on school trips, in the study and career counselling for the older pupils, or by offering an AG (e.g. chess, handicrafts, sports) for children or young people.

Language Courses

As a parent, you can also go back to school at DISDH because we regularly offer language courses for adults on the DISDH premises. To help you settle in and feel at home in your host country more quickly, Dutch is – of course – part of the package. If your mother tongue is not German, you can also take part in one of the German courses. Show your child in this way that you also think it is important to learn the new language!

The adult language courses at DISDH are for the parents of our pupils and for anyone else who is interested. Here you get qualified lessons and in addition a good opportunity to meet other parents and make new acquaintances in The Hague. The language courses at our school are organised in cooperation with Stiftung Sprachkurse and the Goethe-Institut.
