Private grammar school Bad Gleichenberg
For some years now, we have been thinking again and again about how we could expand our educational offer on the campus of the tourism schools. There have been very different approaches with quite interesting topics for an additional school.
Of course, we were very happy when we were offered the opportunity to open a private grammar school (a long form). Those responsible in the Styrian Hotel Management School Association did not take it easy and thought very intensively about what this offer could mean for our tourism schools and also for the educational location Bad Gleichenberg. Also the staff of the tourism schools thought intensively about a possible positioning and orientation of the grammar school. To begin with, we informed the political representatives in the region about our plans. Then the school owner gave us the approval and we were allowed to start promoting our new school. A big thank you in this regard goes to our owner representatives, for their trust and support.
When our decision was made public, a discussion immediately began that we cannot really understand until now. From the very first moment we made it absolutely clear that our private grammar school will be oriented only towards our educational location and will not try to enter into competition with other schools. Our project was questioned from all possible sides and of course also bad-mouthed. Our competence, the location and many other aspects were questioned and a similar educational offer was installed in Feldbach in a rush. As we all know, almost anything is possible in pre-election times. Of course, we congratulated our new competitors for the project launch right away, but we were wise not to enter into further discussions.
We quickly looked for a partner in the education sector. Very quickly we realized that the NMS Bad Gleichenberg would be the right partner for our project. Headmaster Bernd KELLERMEIER and his team will accompany us in the first years and cover some subjects such as music education, technical and textile work. Furthermore, the NMS Bad Gleichenberg has an excellent reputation and has been working successfully with us for many years.
The grammar school for business studies will further enliven the very broad range of education opportunities at our site in Bad Gleichenberg. For us it will be a very interesting task with a completely new target group. We started our first advertising campaign very optimistically, but at the beginning the registrations were rather hesitant
. It took a total of three information afternoons before we were able to reach our opening number. We expect to start the first class of our private grammar school in autumn with 22 to 24 students.
It was really refreshing to see with what joy and enthusiasm the girls and boys visited our school on the information and registration days. We were also able to convince many parents and legal guardians of our overall offer. We attach great importance to a good and close cooperation with the parents of our students. With a young and motivated team we will welcome our first class in autumn. At the campus in Bad Gleichenberg we are looking forward to the project Private Grammar School Bad Gleichenberg!
