Who are the NEWBEES?

We are actively engaged parents of students at the DSW. We come from many different countries and cultures – and at one time we, too, were new to the school. The NEWBEES are organized by the Parents’ Council of the DSW, and work together with the School Administration and the Head of School.

What do the NEWBEES offer?

  • Our goal is to answer any questions you may have regarding life at the DSW.
  • We will be there to facilitate a smooth start at our school.
  • Upon request, we would like to put you in contact with a “Partner-Family”.
  • We organize NEWBEES-Breakfasts - this is a great opportunity to meet other parents.
  • We offer a series of NEWBEES -Talks and provide you a forum for more information.


Who are “Partner-Families”?
