SCHOOL BOOK FUND

The Berlin authorities will be reintroducing free school books for primary school children in classes   1 – 6 as from the coming school year 2018 – 2019. We have therefore been instructed to dissolve the school book fund by 31st December 2018.

The LMF Team is working together with the school and the order for the new school books has already been placed with our supplier. We expect a punctual delivery so that lessons can begin on time.

Parents are now entitled to have their deposits from the school book fund paid out. Alternatively we would like to offer parents the opportunity to donate their deposit to the school.

The school is looking to purchase 30 new faster computers with SSD drives for the computer room in House 1 with a total cost of around 9,000€. We are holding 40.00€ from each of the 394 children that take part in the school book fund with a total of 15,867.20€.

Due to the introduction of free school books parents will save a great deal of money. The headmaster and the board of parent representatives are therefore appealing to parents to donate their deposit. If each parents would do this, the cost of the new computers would be covered.

To donate your deposit this please click on the PDF waiver at the bottom of this page and return it latest 29th June 2018 to the LMF Team at cdgs-lmf@outlook.de.

For parents that wish to have their deposit paid out, we have set up a website to collect the bank details. This is the preferred option as it allows us to work more efficiently.  Please click on the link at the bottom of this page and fill out your details.

The website is protected by an encrypted secure server connection.

Your personal data will be handled with extreme care, it will be saved securely and not passed to any third party. Your data will be deleted as soon as your deposit has been returned and the school book fund dissolved.

You may retract your permission for use of your data for this purpose at any time. Please send an E-Mail with your retraction to sekretariat@charles-dickens.schule.berlin.de We will then delete your data immediately.

For those parents that would prefer to use a paper form, these are available upon request from the school secretary and should be returned to the class teacher latest 29th June 2018.

As you can appreciate this entails a lot of work from the two parents that manage our bank account. We are therefore going to stagger the pay outs over a number of months.

The pay outs will be made as follows:

  • Deposits held for children currently in year 6 and those children leaving the school will be paid out by the end of July.
  • Deposits held for children currently in year 5 will be paid out by the end of August.
  • Deposits held for children currently in year 4 will be paid out by the end of September.
  • Deposits held for children currently in year 3 will be paid out by the end of October.
  • Deposits held for children currently in year 2 will be paid out by the end of November.
  • Deposits held for children currently in year 1 will be paid out by the end of December.
