Das heißt: Marienau fühlt sich den Werten der UNESCO-Charta und -Verfassung bezüglich der Menschenrechte, internationaler friedlicher Verständigung, Minderheitenschutz, Toleranz, Umwelterziehung und dem interkulturellen Lernens besonders verpflichtet.
Unsere alltägliche Erziehung zielt darauf ab, die Idee von einer friedlichen und toleranten Welt in den Köpfen der Kinder und Jugendlichen zu verankern. Diese Themen werden in unterschiedlichsten Zusammenhängen bearbeitet:
The current migration of people around the globe has created a new demand for the responsibility of schools to increase intercultural activities and thus to bring international perspectives into the classrooms.
In times when today`s national standards do not suffice for a worldwide competition, Marienau has decided to promote the idea of meeting today`s global challenges by inviting international students to join in the opportunity of sharing intercultural experiences with the local students in our school.
According to their age and their previous school experiences, the students coming from Mexico, Russia, China, Egypt and Spain attend different classes (from 5 to 13) of our school, most of them aiming at passing the German “Abitur” after a few years. Our pedagogical aim is to provide a comprehensive education for all nationalities that comprises classroom learning, extracurricular activities and the life within the community of a boarding school such as Marienau.
Students of both local and international backgrounds learning side by side get the chance in Marienau to develop qualifications such as individual open-mindedness, the abandonment of prejudices and the willingness to open up to mutual, intercultural understanding, tolerance and acceptance.
Eventually, Marienau as a UNESCO School regards itself as a European school within a global community.
