Responsibility can and must be learned: Hand in hand with our Christian aspirations and values, we convey to our students the joy of working together, engagement and commitment for one another.
At Gaesdonck, social and responsible thinking and acting is promoted, demanded and lived in all areas: our students get involved, as the house tutor of their boarding school group, as the student representative of their class, as the group leader of our scouts, in the student company, as a bus tutor, during the social internship, during services at Gaesdonck (e.g. catering at events) and many more opportunities.
But we also like to go miles: for example to Randa – to our Augustinerhütte in the Swiss Alps. Away from the usual comfort and too much comfort, everyone must be able to rely on each other. This makes it possible to experience community particularly intensively.
At the end of their time on the Gaesdonck, our students take much more with them than a school leaving examination, certificates and diplomas. They are ready for and able to assume responsibility at work, in family and in society.
