Our Annual General Meeting generally takes place in October of each year at UVic. New board members are welcome.

Weihnachtsfest (Christmas party)

Our yearly ‘Weihnachtsfest’ is usually taking place in early December and is a great opportunity to connect with teachers and parents alike.

Osterfest (Easter celebration)

Our Osterfest is celebrated the weekend before the Easter long weekend.

Sommerfest (Year end celebration)

We are celebrating our “Sommerfest” on the last Saturday of the school year.

Sommer Picknick (Summer picnic)

For the first time the school organized a fun get together towards the end of the 2017 summer break, meeting at Gyro Park for a picnic.

Stammtisch (“Regular’s table”)

An old tradition in German speaking countries and a fairly new but already very successful one with VGS is our monthly “Stammtisch”: Usually every first Friday of the month during the school year, Ben Litzcke, one of our teachers, sends out an invitation to interested parties about where and when to meet. Last year, the Stammtisch has met at the Fernwood Inn and at the Bent Mast in James Bay. This year, some other pubs are being explored to see what people like most. If you would like to be added to the “Stammtisch”-list please let Ben know at benlitzcke (at) . Looking forward to seeing you there! And: you don't have to be affiliated with the German school in other ways to enjoy this event - everyone is Willkommen!

Here is a picture from our January 2019 Stammtisch at 1550's. What a fun evening!
