BBS: School without racism - on RADIJOJO

"When we are born as kids we don't care about colour"

Hello, we are the students of Berlin Bilingual School.

There are many types of discrimination - not only on the basis of skin colour or origin, but also on the basis of disability, religious affiliation or language.
We reject all of this - we want to live and learn together peacefully. Therefore we applied for the title "School without racism - school with courage".

Here a link to the radio show RADIJOJO recorded at our big "School without racism" Ceremony last year.

Corona Testing

Posted: Mon, 01/03/2021 - 09:48

BBS received more than 1000 Corona testing kits. Within one week we have had several teachers being trained in how to administer the tests. We are now offering tests for everybody on a Friday and/ or whenever they would like to have one. However, this is done on a voluntary basis and an offer for staff only.

Happy New Year!

Happy new year to our BBS community!

Although we are not back in school in person, we see each other online. At the moment, all classes are being taught digitally via google classrooms. In case a child does not have a laptop at home, s/he can borrow one from school. 

Goodbye 2020

Dear BBS Community,

Since today is the last school day of particularly challenging year, we really want to take this opportunity to send a message of sincere gratitude to BBS parents, students and staff.

To parents
Without your great support the months between March and June would not have been possible. Your feedback and help in navigating the crisis has been priceless. Thank you!

To our incredible students

Diversity Week 2020

Posted: Wed, 02/12/2020 - 12:34

This year's diversity week focus' has been mental health. An important topic to discuss with our students already from an early age onwards - we are all diferent and don't necessarily see the things the same way as our friends or family does. An example: During music lessons our students explored reading music rhythms and melodies without their sense of sight, discovered Braille music notation and collaborated on mute compositions, working togehter to create music without speaking.

If we can't go to the museum, the museum comes to us.

We are very happy to host an exhibition by the Deutsche Gesellschaft e.V. for our primary and secondary school called "Der Blick gegen das Vergessene gerichtet". This exhibition has been developed by secondary students from France, Poland and Germany who talked about the difficult history of Europe and how important peace is, not only in Europe but around the world.

November 2020

Posted: Fri, 06/11/2020 - 11:34

The last months have been very difficult for all people and schools around the world and we are gladly looking forward to the end of 2020. At the moment, we remain in the classification "YELLOW", meaning that lessons take place, and only children of the gymnasiale Oberstufe are wearing masks. However, we have moved successfully moved into Granitzstr. with our secondary school and we are now leaving behind Weissensee. Please, see our facebook profile for some images.

Moving Day!

We are finally there! Our secondary school is moving to Granitzstr! After the October holidays all students - from grade 7 to their Abitur - will be taught from our new building in Pankow. It is a small building in the heart of East Berlin and it has been renovated during the last months for our secondary school. We are very happy to have found this building and that we are finally moving into our new home.
