Funding programmes

Crowdfunding ESWE Osteraktion2024

We are taking part in the OSTER crowdfunding campaign organised by ESWE-Versorgung. From 08.04.24-04.05.2024 we are collecting money for the purchase of new picnic tables for our green classroom.

The green classroom is a learning concept in which our Monti pupils are taught outside the school building. Our recreational forest is then used as a learning environment. The concept offers us the opportunity to introduce the children to environmental education and sensitise them to sustainable action.

We have big plans and hope to generate the sum of 2,000 euros from supporters. ESWE is supporting the projects with 10 per cent of the target sum as start-up funding. For every 10 euros donated by the public, ESWE-Versorgung adds 10 euros from the funding pot. We are therefore dependent on the support of many sponsors in order to reach the target amount.

You can find more information about our project and support us on the ESWE Easter campaign website. It’s all or nothing! Only if we collect the full amount through donations will the money be paid out to us.

Crowdfunding 2024

In our endeavour to provide innovative learning resources, we are planning to purchase 15 iPads to enhance our students’ digital skills and give them access to new forms of interactive learning. This technology will be a valuable addition to our educational resources and will allow students to expand their creativity and knowledge in the digital world.

In order to realise this project, we have adopted a modern way of financing – crowdfunding. We have therefore decided to launch our campaign on the “Viele-schaffen-mehr.de” platform of Wiesbadener Volksbank.

Actively support our project by sharing information about it on your social networks and talking to family, friends and acquaintances to promote our project.

Kaufland donation campaign 2024

The “Every cent counts!” donation concept gives customers in over 770 Kaufland shops the opportunity to donate small amounts of cents to a social organisation in their region. From 1 to 31 January 2024, Kaufland customers can help decide which social organisation from the region will receive the donations collected in January. In addition, Kaufland will double the entire January donations!

This is how it works:

1. scan the “voting code” that you receive in January 2024 when you pay.
2. select the regional shop on the website.
3. vote for your favourite project.

We would like to make a contribution to further advancing digitalisation in order to avoid remaining in the European midfield.
In recent months, we have invested a lot of time and money in expanding our IT infrastructure to enable the integration of digital end devices as a supplement to analogue teaching. In our film project course “Monti goes to Hollywood”, the children are to give free rein to their creativity in the creation of short films and documentaries about school events. Ideas are developed together, from the script to the film editing. The pupils not only learn how to use the necessary technology, but also how to take on a role in the group. Our aim is also to train our pupils to become responsible recipients who know how to deal with media offerings in a reflective manner. With the board tools of an iPad, videos can be created very easily, quick and visible successes are achieved early on and motivate the children to delve further into the topic. In order to realise our project, we would like to purchase 10 iPads for our school.

Wish list application for the RMVsmiles fundraising campaign 2023

7 microscopes for our experimentation course

We have submitted our wish list application for the RMVsmiles fundraising campaign. The draw for the 30 institutions participating in the fundraising campaign took place at the beginning of November and the Montessori School Wiesbaden was selected.

From 1 December, ESWE customers can find out more about the organisations at smiles.www.rmv.de and decide which of the 30 Wish Barometers the Smiles collected will be donated to. If a wish barometer is full, the respective organisation will receive ‚ā¨1,000 to fulfil a wish. Further information can be found on the RMV smiles website.

Our wish for our application:

Magnifying devices such as microscopes open the door to an infinitely large world of molecular biology and provide a captivating insight into biology. The children are introduced to scientific work. In microscopy, they make their own specimens and then examine them under the microscope. They learn how to work with the cross table, various objectives and lighting. The result is an impressive and lasting learning experience in the fields of biology, optics and mechanics.

We would like to have 7 microscopes so that the children can carry out their experiments in pairs.

We have made it! Thanks to the help of many supporters who donated their smile bonus points to our project. At the end of December, we received the news that our barometer had reached 100% and that our school could look forward to receiving 1,000 euros for the purchase of new microscopes.

Many thanks to everyone who voted for us and cheered us on to reach the full amount.

Förderpenny programme 2023

Participation in the Förderpenny Program 2023
The Montessori School Wiesbaden applied for the Penny program with the acquisition of a low ropes course for our break forest.

At the end of May, we learned that we were selected as one of 2 finalists from our neighborhood region. We have a chance to be your F√∂rderpenny winner. Because once again this year, PENNY is supporting organizations and associations from all over Germany that help children and young people with its “F√∂rderpenny” project. And we are one of them!

As one of 700 organizations, we have already won ‚ā¨1,000 in prize money – and now we are competing for a year’s funding in the big customer vote.

From 21.08.2023 to 10.09.2023, the voting for our project will take place online at www.penny.de. You can vote for us once per day.

Our project idea:

The trees will be connected with steel cables and small platforms for the climbing course. This creates connections between the trees on which the children can balance without contact with the ground. The low ropes course is a great way for our students to satisfy their need for movement, play and excitement during our experiential education program. In mastering tasks, they recognize their abilities and develop confidence in themselves and their classmates. Learning processes are set in motion and the children can develop personality and initiative.

Our projects

Thanks to your support, we were able to take first place with our project and win the annual customer donations from the PENNY stores in our neighbourhood region. We would like to thank everyone who took part in the voting and we are delighted to be able to make the necessary purchases.

Gruproom renovations 2023

Our group rooms for the Opal and Azurit groups were getting on in years and no longer looked quite so nice. There was a need for action here – we thought it could be nicer. Before and during the summer holidays, three group rooms were renovated by dedicated Monti parents and their children. They tirelessly moved furniture, swung brushes, sanded, painted, purchased and assembled child-friendly furniture. The children enthusiastically helped with the renovation work; their group rooms were to be made more appealing with new colours so that they could feel comfortable all round and concentrated work would be easier.
Thanks to the preparation and follow-up work carried out by our teachers, the pupils were able to start the 2023/2024 school year in the best possible way. A big thank you to all the helpers. The last group room not yet renovated was tackled in the 2023 autumn holidays!

Project Day Wiesbaden engagiert! 2023

Project:¬† Let’s get to the beds

At the project exchange of Wiesbaden engagiert! on 26.4.23 we could win the decision makers of Lotto Hessen for us with our project idea. We would like to thank all participants of the Monti and especially the 16 helpers of Lotto Hessen GmbH, who tirelessly took over the work at the stations and especially the wooden boarding of our school garden beds until the evening. It was a busy and successful day for everyone. Once again we would like to express our sincere thanks to “Hornbach Wiesbaden”. With the organization of the 4-meter-long urgently needed planks and the free delivery of all necessary wood, the implementation of the project was possible. Of course, our students had great fun marveling at the crane.

The teams gathered at the individual stations and began the restoration of the wooden horses, the wooden benches and the garden shed. Preparing the ground for the base of our water tank and removing weeds from between our fruit trees and a new coat of paint for the playhouse in the grove was tackled. The biggest project on the schedule was the boarding up of our 6 metal beds of the school garden.

Wiesbaden engagiert! is a cooperation of companies and non-profit organizations, so that projects can be implemented together. The patron of the action week is the mayor of Wiesbaden, Gert-Uwe Mende.

 

 

Renovation of entrance area

Our entrance area is the place that welcomes our pupils, the Monti team, our parents and all our guests. It was getting on in years and had lost its inviting character. We were able to remedy this with active support.

A concept for the renovation was developed together with the expert input of parents. Parents and members of the Monti team worked with impressive dedication and perseverance to apply masking tape and fill holes and edges. Once the scaffolding had been erected, the painting work could begin. Finally, the helpers cut and applied the forest wallpaper to a wall area of approx. 5 x 7 metres. A truly challenging task for everyone involved.

At the end of two busy days, we succeeded in transforming the entrance area of our school into an inviting, feel-good place. A big thank you to our motivated and dedicated helpers, who made the realisation of the project possible in the first place.

A new low ropes course for our break forest 2022

Project name: Low ropes course

Our low ropes course was one of our highlights in the Pausenwäldchen. Our students really enjoyed climbing, balancing and shimmying in the greenery during breaks and afternoon supervision. Unfortunately, this had to be completely removed in the course of the tree rescue. Through the acquisition of the ladder net wall, the balancing course, the pendulum seat course and the rope, we were able to offer the students a replacement of equal value.

The runners were able to generate a large financial contribution at the sponsored run at our 2022 summer festival.

Im Dezember 2022 war der Aufbau geschafft.

Unsere Sch√ľler*innen konnten mit gro√üer Freude das Kletterger√ľst einweihen.

Redesign of our canteen 2022

Project: redesign of our canteen

From 23 to 26.06.2022 we have planned the fundamental redesign of our refectory. Our cafeteria is to be designed to be child-friendly and multifunctional for a wide range of requirements. The children should feel comfortable when they use the cafeteria for lunch, afternoon activities and vacation care.

The pictures provide a preview of the new design with wall shelving, seating areas and storage. The space will be more homey and better soundproofed with furniture so everyone can feel comfortable together.

Many helpers helped with the realisation of the project.

Tirelessly, shelves were built and attached.

Our students enjoy the child-friendly furniture and the inviting atmosphere.

“It makes the food taste even better.”
