On April 22, 2017 we met to tidy up the P30 campus and to set up a second raised flower bed.

On March 17 2017, 104 students (from all year 8 classes) and 10 teachers traveled to Austria to ski for a week at Hochzillertal, one of the greatest ski resorts in Europe. After a fairly relaxing overnight-ride with the coach we arrived in Münster, Austria, early on Saturday morning. The hostel was a different one this year with better rooms and in a more romantic location away from downtown Münster (and the supermarket). It took a while to get the rooms sorted, 110 pairs of skis and boots rented, luggage unpacked before students and teachers went on the famous geomorphological hike along the spurs of the alps. On Sunday morning, skiing lessons started and went on until Friday, March 24.

Over the last two and a half months, a team of grade 7-13 girls has been taking part in weekly basketball training sessions in preparation for the season’s final game, a friendly game against the NMS boy’s team, which took place on February 15, 2017. We played two short games, one of which we won, had a lot of fun and got to see how much we have progressed. The training as well as the game were a project organized by me as part of the IB CAS program. My goal with this project was to get more girls to play basketball, which is a very male-dominated sport. While there was no girl’s basketball team at our school prior to this project, there is definitely plenty of demand.

The project was a great experience, and I want to thank everyone who was involved in it. Everyone has shown great progress and not only improved their skills, but also grew together as a team. I would also like to encourage anyone interested, to continue this project next year, because it would be great to see the team grow and possibly participate in more games.

Dieses Mal gewann von unserer Schule Lilli Gramann aus der 6b den Vorlesewettbewerb beim Bezirksentscheid für Wilmersdorf-Charlottenburg. Am 17. Mai 2017 wird sie gegen die Gewinner/innen der anderen Bezirke von Berlin antreten.

Liebe Schulgemeinschaft der NMS,

Congratulations BIMP Musicians on the successful Gala Concert on Sunday 19th March 2017.

Thank you very much for everyone’s devoted participation in our music project!

Many people said that this was one of the best BIMP Gala Concert ever. This could only happen with the hard work, individual practice time, rehearsal attendance and good spirit of our young musicians. They all looked and sounded beautiful on stage for the happiness of the audience.

Big thanks goes to all parents, helpers, NMS support (especially Mr. Langlotz) again for making the time for the musicians to participate and to organize the difficult travels to the different rehearsal spaces.

This year there were nine international schools participating from around Berlin and Brandenburg and three guest schools from Hungary, Slovakia and England. The Gala Concert was hosted by the Berlin Brandenburg International School in Klein Machnow and attended by many proud parents, family, and friends.

Starting in December and ending with a match in Februrary there were volleyball trainings taking place once a week for grades 10+, boys and girls, which I organized as my CAS project. In the relaxed and friendly atmosphere of the trainings we strengthened our knowledge of the different volleyball techniques and improved our skills practically in the important aspects of the game, such as serving, 3-step attack and blocking. The players were at different levels of playing and general knowledge of the game, but towards the end we were all on a generally equal level, which was a success. In February there was a mini-match between our little volleyball team against students from a volleyball team from the lower classes. Even though there was a slight age difference, the other team has had more experience in volleyball than our team did, which equalized our levels. Even though our team lost with a tight score, I was proud of our team, as I really could see the improvement in their skills as well as teamwork. Both teams enjoyed the evening, as it was a very amicable and team-spirited atmosphere and a successful project in my opinion.
