“Dennoch Fest und Frei”
The Wartburg Kirchdorf School was born of a vision, where the parents sort to establish a school for their children. Through the years that vision has not waned. Those parents of yesteryear have seen their children finish their schooling, become parents and have children of their own. And so the Wartburg Old Scholars Association was born and became an integral part of the school, supporting the school and their children to keep the vision alive of “Dennoch Fest und Frei”, loosely translated as “yet resolute and free”.
As the Wartburg Old Scholars Association we still subscribe to this belief, understanding that our children, growing up and schooled in our local school, within our beautiful town and community, will become well rounded, resolute members of society fully equipped to be of worth and of substance in this world that we are part of.
The Wartburg Old Scholars Association fulfils its role, of being a help and assistance to the school and its members, through a small, yet passionate committee. The committee is tasked with raising funds through any means possible, but primarily through the annual Wartburg School Golf Day held at Noodsberg Country Club, and to use those funds to see to any needs the Wartburg School might have. The Association also finds much pleasure in being invited to have a co-opted seat on the School Governing Body.
The Wartburg Old Scholars Association has over the years undertaken many projects, especially seeing to any buildings needs. The parking opposite the school is the property of the Association and fulfils an important role in relieving the traffic congestion on the school grounds.
The Association looks forward to still being “Fest und Frei” in its support of the school, and stands ready and resolved to face the future together with the school.
