Unusual commitment: student of the Europa-Gymnasium campaign for a library worker and justifies this verbatim in a petition: “Not long ago, the library at our school was extensively renovated and designed in a place that who would especially like to be high school students. Able to use their free hours for concentrated work, reading and learning,” it says. They are not allowed to spend in the common room or outside the school premises. After the room is almost completely closed for a long time due to lack of staff, “it is fortunately not to last.” was able to be used again in a few weeks as a specialist was appointed who could look after the maintenance and lending of the library. But after it was sent to the vaccination center for a short time, now EGW is again without library staff. “That’s why we want to work to ensure that our school has a permanent library specialist so that the rooms can be completely re-used,” the petition said.
Over 380 Signatures
Students write that it is very disappointing. Especially in the current situation, it’s important to be able to stretch a bit, “not everyone has to sit together in a full lounge and the weather conditions don’t really allow people to go out”. It cannot be that such a large school with such a large student body and such a well-equipped room is not available with adequate staff. More than 380 people have signed the petition so far. Among them is Stephen Weiss, the chairman of the school parents’ council, for whom this has already been an issue with the district administration on several occasions: “I will also address this issue to the district’s school administration committee. Investing in a library only makes sense when it can be put to use.”
For the chair of Friends of the EGW, the prospect of using the library “is a matter of heart. The Freundskeris has already invested a lot of money in the library. It would be a shame if it cannot be used.” Headmaster Holger Hauptmann answered a question: “It was an initiative of the students that I found out about later. Of course, as a school, we would be very happy if we could make our school library free to students for independent work, research and research.” and much more. Especially since we did a massive refurbishment and modernization of the library a few years ago”, and further: “But perhaps schools do not plan to have library staff”. Hence this joy It was reported that after the vaccination center in Worth closed a few weeks ago, the district administration assigned a woman to the school to support the library. more important in what is very uncertain for all of us.”
Vaccination center staff
The press office of the district administration responded to the request: “Contrary to the state specifications, the Germersheim district decided on 30 September not to terminate the administrative staff working at the vaccination center for operational reasons, but for a short time. to bridge.” The various administrative units may be briefly consolidated on 1 October. EGWs using this reinforcement in the library also benefited from this. “With the reopening of the vaccination centre, the administrative staff were returned to their original and original area of responsibility. There was and is not any position in the position plan to fill the library. In other schools it is customary to support library use through development associations or groups of friends.”
